Obituary of Yvette Samuel Doucet
It is with great sadness we announce the death of Madame Yvette Doucet (née Samuel) the matriarch of our family at the Foyer Richelieu on August 1, 2022 at the age of 94. Beloved wife of Leopold Doucet (2006). Cherished mother of Madone Marquis (Gaetan), Yvon Doucet (Carole), Jacques Doucet, Régent Doucet (Kim), and Annette Jones (Gerry). She will be sadly missed by her 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Dear sister of Normand Samuel, Victor Samuel, Georgette Fontaine and Therese Martini. Predeceased by her parents Paul-Emile and Laurette (née Coursol) and her siblings; Edna Lehoux, Jeanette Tardif and Léo Samuel.
Our mother had a life field with happiness and pride. Surrounded by her family and extended family. Her joy of cooking a great meal to share for all to enjoy. She always had the open-door policy. She was also a very talented knitter. She always took pride as she did her intricate projects. She was also well known for her slippers. Even during her stay at the Foyer Richelieu, she could be seen knitting away in the atrium and her lazyboy. She provided warmth, comfort and pleasure to all who wore them.
A great big thank you to the staff at the Foyer Richelieu for their personalized, professional, compassionate care they have given our mom during her stay.
