May 23, 1937 – March 19, 2023

Our mom has gone to join our Dad and our sister Cindy Whyte.

She leaves her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to remember the stories, the family tales and mostly the love we all had for her and the love she had for us.

The many nights as children, teens and adults we spent sitting with her around the kitchen table with a big pot of tea listening to her tell us about “when she was young” will keep us chuckling forever.

Rest in peace Mom, you are now with Dad waltzing forever.

“I’ll always remember, the song they were playing
The first time we danced, and I knew
as we swayed to the music, and held to each other
I fell in love with you..”

Anne Murray – Could I have this Dance

Always loved and remembered by her remaining children and their spouses: Derek Whyte (son-in-law), Debbie Wren (Robert), Armand Arsenault (Jr), Michelle Brown (Doug), Arthur Arsenault, and Nicole Bouvier (Darrell); grandchildren Venesa Whyte, Eric Whyte (Kristin), Justin Whyte, Jerrid Whyte, Amanda Bolster (Joe), Joseph Wren (Uyanga), Jesalyne Wren, Copera Drummond (Derek), Grayson Frey, Ciara Bauer (Wyatt), Alaura Bouvier (partner Jordan) and Alexander Bouvier (partner Bryanna); great-grand fur-baby Rey Whyte; great-grandchildren: Mackenzie, Abagail & Allison Whyte; Kashton, Marlow & Kingston Whyte; Aven & Chloe Bolster; Chinobold & Chinozorig Wren; Leah, Jill & Bryan Wren; Ella & Colson Drummond; Alek & Lorelei Frey.

Mom was one of sixteen children and leaves behind her sisters Nancy and Sandra, sisters-in-law Helda, Julia; brothers-in-law Marcel (Freda), Claude (Cecile), and many nieces and nephews on both sides of our family.

The family would like to thank Dr. Julia Bright and her home care aids for their care.
