Our mother, Dianette Eveline Levesque passed away peacefully at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at the age of 84 years. She was born on August 25, 1929 in Campbellton, New Brunswick to Alvina and John Robichaud.
One of Dianette’s greatest loves was music. She was the greatest entertainer and we enjoyed her music whether it be singing or playing the guitar, banjo or accordion. Mom also enjoyed her garden and harvested many wonderful foods from it. She was a caregiver for most of her life – to her husband and also to her daughter. She was always there when she was needed.
Dianette leaves to cherish her memory her four beloved daughters; Aline Levesque (Bob Moore), Jackie (Richard) LaFleur, Jeannine (John) Smart and Louise Thede. She also leaves behind her grandchildren; Carl, Keith and Lise and five great grandchildren. Dianette was predeceased by her husband, Raymond Levesque and her parents, John and Alvina Robichaud.
