Audrey Bernice Robitaille
December 12, 1927 – August 16, 2019
Robitaille (nee Smith), Audrey Bernice passed away on August 16, 2019 in the same manner in which she lived her life; peacefully and surrounded by her loving family. She was in her 92nd year. Predeceased by her parents Henry and Alice Smith and her grandparents who loved, cherished and raised her, George and Amanda Smith. Survived by her three children who treasured and deeply loved her; Bev Arthurs (Cindy) of Espanola, Cathy Varrin (Jim) of Lively and Jo-Anne Larose of Thessalon. Adored by her grandchildren Danny Larose (Loree), Trisha Larose (Dean), Jennifer Arthurs (Mark), Mark Varrin, Tanya Larose (Johnny), Jeffery Arthurs (Christie), Matthew Varrin (Yusdaily), Ryan Clement (Leanne) and Alex Aubertin (Emily). Will be sadly missed by her 17 great-grandchildren Allison, James, Kyla, Justin, Liam, Bryce, Malcolm, Carter, Hope, Evan, Rylan, Presley, Ashton, Riley, Emma, Jake, Tory and great-great-granddaughter Lynkinn as well as close family friend Terry Laderoute. Bernice is now reunited with her husband and love of her life Dr. Noel Robitaille who passed away in April of 2019 and is survived by his 10 children, Christine, Helene (Gervais Bedard), Pierre-Marie (Patricia Helgeson), Chantal, Jeanne (Fredrick Brohart), Patrice (Manon Ratte), Lucie (Ronald Raymond), Lydia, Stephanie and Mireille (John McNeil), 27 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Bernice was a gentle and generous soul who left this world a better place than she found it. A woman of faith, she showed compassion and kindness to everyone she met, truly living the golden rule. Bernice was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and taught us all to find the best in people, to stick together and above all else to love one another. She will live on in the hearts of all who loved her. The family would like to sincerely thank the nurses and staff at Pioneer Manor for their loving care over the past five years. A funeral service will take place Wednesday August 21, 2019 at 11:00 am at St. Jude Parish in Espanola. Internment to follow at Espanola cemetery. Lunch will be served at the church immediately after. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pioneer Manor or to the Alzheimer’s Society of Ontario.
