Adeline Fillion

Samedi, le 7 mai 2016, au Repos Jolys à St Pierre Jolys, Adeline nous quitta soudainement, mais paisiblement à l'âge de 91 ans.  Adéline laisse dans le deuil son époux Marcel, ses enfants Denis Fillion (Réjane), Gisèle Sabourin (Donald), Janine Wiebe (Neil), Michel (Rick Irving), Adéline Sellwood (Rick). Adéline laisse aussi en arrière les petits enfants Daniel (Lynne Magne), Richard (Tiffany Hall) et Janelle Fillion; Stéphane (Tracy), Rémi (Alishia) Jacques et Joline Sabourin: Sean et Jennifer Braun; Amanda et Deanna (Mathew) Wiebe: James et Lynne Waldie; Lesley (Charles Goss), Jessica, Paul Sellwood ainsi que Tristin Fontaine; Luda (Jeff Calder), Berlyn (Stéphan Bérard), Hadrian, et Leevon Wall et leur mère Marilyn (l'épouse de Gérard). Elle laisse également 10 arrières petits enfants. Elle a aussi deux sœurs qui la survivent; Léola Parent, et Célima Bruneau (Georges), ainsi que plusieurs beaux frères et belles sœurs qui vont la manquer. Elle fut prédécédée par deux fils, Jacques (1971) et Gérard (2011), un petit files Dominic (1977), son père Hermas Grégoire, sa mère Alphonsine Barnabé, une sœur Berthe Goertzen, et un frère Alphonse.

Adéline, étant marié à Marcel, un fermier de St Joseph,  ne manqua pas de choses à faire sur leur ferme incluant un grand jardin, et de cultiver 4-5 acres de framboises. Elle aimait beaucoup les fleurs et avait de beaux parterres. Ayant déménagé au village de St Joseph en l'an 2000, elle ne perdit pas de temps à décorer sa coure. Sa passion cependant fut la peinture. Elle a fait beaucoup de belles peintures au courant de sa vie. Même durant les dernières semaines, on pouvait souvent la trouver en train de colorier. N'étant plus capable de peinturer, colorier  fut sa deuxième passion. Les couloirs du foyer d'Emerson fut complètement rempli de ses œuvres.

Nous, la famille d'Adéline, offrons ses plus sincères remerciements au personnel du  Chalet Malouin de St Malo, foyer Emerson Personal Care Home et du foyer Repos Jolys pour les très bons soins attentifs.  Vous avez définitivement contribué à enrichir la qualité de vie de notre Adéline.

La célébration des funérailles aura lieu le 14 mai à l’église de Saint Joseph présidé par l’abbé François Xavier Lutumba Tshiya. Les prières et les chants débuteront à 1:30 PM, suivis de la messe funéraire à 2:00 PM. L’inhumation aura lieu immédiatement après au cimetière paroissial.

Pour ceux qui tienne de faire un don, on vous suggère plutôt de supporter l'organisme The Lupus Society of Manitoba, 105-386 Broadway Ave., Winnipeg, Mb R3X 1G2 en sa mémoire.

On Saturday May 7, 2016, at the Repos Jolys in St Pierre Jolys, Adeline left us suddenly and peacefully at the age of 91 years.  Adéline is survived by her spouse Marcel, her children Denis Fillion (Réjane), Gisèle Sabourin (Donald), Janine Wiebe (Neil), Michel Fillion (Rick), Adéline Sellwood (Rick). Adéline also leaves behind her grandchildren Daniel (Lynne Magne), Richard (Tiffany Hall) and Janelle Fillion; Stéphane (Tracy), Rémi (Alishia) Jacques and Joline Sabourin; Sean and Jennifer Braun, Amanda and Deanna (Mathew) Wiebe; James and Lynne Waldie, Lesley (Charles Goss), Jessica, and Paul Sellwood and Tristin Fontaine; Luda (Jeff Calder), Berlyn (Stéphan Bérard), Hadrian, and Leevon Wall and their mother Marilyn (Gérard's spouse). She also has 10 great grandchildren. She is also leaving two sisters, Léola Parent, and Célima Bruneau (Georges) who will miss her, as well as many brothers and sisters in-law. She was predeceased by two sons, Jacques (1971) and Gérard (2011), a grandson Dominic,  her father Hermas Grégoire, her mother Alphonsine Barnabé, one sister Berthe Goertzen, and a brother Alphonse Grégoire.

Adéline was married to a farmer from St Joseph, Marcel on October 17, 1951. Being on a farm there was no lack of things to do including cultivating 4-5 acres of raspberries. She loved flowers and had beautiful flower gardens. When they moved to the village of St Joseph in the year 2000, she did not waste any time to decorate her yard with her flowers, shrubs and fruit trees. But her passion was painting. She has left us many beautiful paintings. Even in the last weeks we could easily find her coloring either with crayons, pastels and the like. As she was no long able to paint, coloring became her next passion.  The hallways of the personal care home in Emerson were full of her artwork.

The family are very thankful to the personnel of the Chalet Malouin of St Malo, Emerson Personal Care Home, and Repos Jolys for the excellent care and friendships provided to our Adéline over the years. You have truly contributed to enrich her quality of life. 


Prayers will be held on Friday, May 13, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at the Saint Joseph Catholic Church.  The funeral service will be held on Saturday, May 14th at the Saint Joseph Catholic Church, presided by Father François Xavier Lutumba. Prayers and music will start at 1:30 PM, the funeral mass at 2:00 PM, followed by interment in the Saint Joseph parish cemetery.


Donations can be made to The Lupus Society of Manitoba, 105-386 Broadway Ave., Winnipeg, Mb R3X 1G2 in her memory.
