It is with sadness that the family of Marie Yvonne "Hélène" Messier announces her death at home on Thursday, November 30, 2017, at the age of 57. Born in Richelieu, QC, on December 24, 1959, she was the daughter of Luc and Madeleine (Archambault) Messier.
In addition to her parents, Hélène leaves behind her children, Jonathan (Amanda) of Montréal, QC, David and Andréa Peters, of Fredericton, NB. She also leaves behind her siblings, Lucie Hamel (Gaétan) of Québec City, QC, Véronique Benoit of Richelieu, QC, Claudine Messier (Yves) of Chambly, QC, Jean-Francois Messier (Valérie) of Issoudun, QC, and Daniel Messier of Granby, QC; and a large extended family.
A private service will be held at a later date. For those who wish, donations in Hélène’s memory can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or to a Womens’ shelter/transition home. For those who may wish to donate flower arrangements, please offer potted plants instead of cut flowers.
