Olivette Fontaine died peacefully in Newmarket, Ontario on October 11, 2019; her 89th birthday.

Olivette will be remembered for her quick wit, meticulous attention to detail, and her unfailingly giving nature. She is survived by her sisters Raymonde Heath and Helene Fontaine, brother Rayjean Fontaine, and will be fondly remembered by her nieces. The family wishes to thank the staff of Southlake Residential Care Village (3 West) for their loving care of Olivette over the past 12 years.
