Our Mother, Marie Leona (Lynn) Therese Flamand passed away peacefully, on Friday September 23, 2022, at the age of 94. Mom spent her last few years living at the Warm & Cozy Care Home on Atton Crescent. She really loved the wonderful and kind care she received there. Mom was born November 21, 1927, at Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan. Her parents were Ovila and Aldianna Chenier. Mom attended school for six years in Bapaume, Saskatchewan, then the family moved to Batoche, and she attended school there. After leaving home, mom worked at the Holy Family Hospital in Prince Albert for four years where she met and married Art Fouquette in 1946. In 1948, Ron was born, and the family moved to Coquitlam, BC and in 1953, Brenda (Fouquette) Dobie was born. In 1960, the family returned to the Prairies and lived in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and St. Boniface, Manitoba and then moved to Hudson Bay until the mid 1960's where Lynn managed a restaurant in the Red Deer Hotel. It was in Hudson Bay that she met Ernest Flamand. They were married in April of 1969 in Hudson Bay. Dad had eight young children at home, so Mom inherited and adopted us all at that time! We aren’t sure if she knew what she was getting into, but we are eternally grateful that she came into our lives.
