We Remember

MUIRIE, Paulette Viviane

December 17, 1931 — November 12, 2023

Paulette est née à Laverlochère, province de Québec, le 17 décembre 1931. Elle a vécu à Winnipeg, MB pendant une quarantaine d’années, puis a passé les 12 dernières années à Kelowna, BC.

Paulette était la huitième enfant de Firmin Pigeon et Marie-Anna Rondeau. Ses frères Roger, Paul, Marcel, Gaëtan, Jacques, Yvon, et Jean-Guy ainsi que ses sœurs Lucille et Martine l’ont précédée dans le royaume de Dieu. Elle laisse derrière elle, pour pleurer sa perte, Simone, Huguette, Jacqueline, et Gilbert, ainsi que de nombreux neveux et nièces.

Paulette était l’épouse de Robert Muirie, l’amour de sa vie.

The time has come to remember the life of Paulette Muirie, who passed away peacefully on November 12, 2023, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 91.

Paulette was loved by more people than she could imagine, including her sisters & brothers, nieces & nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews, and the children of her friends (all knew her as Auntie Paulette!).

It is said that you die twice, once when you stop breathing, and the second when you are remembered for the last time. Paulette didn’t want a funeral or a celebration. Instead, we ask the next time you enjoy a cup of tea (with a wee dram of Drambuie, perhaps), play a game of cribbage, or drive by a bingo hall, say her name and smile. That way, she lives on.

The family would like to thank: family physician Michael Hopman; nursing staff and doctors at Kelowna General Hospital during Paulette’s time of need; and the caregivers at St. Pius X Catholic Church for their heartfelt prayers and hospital visits. We also thank her friends and neighbours at her Bertram St. apartment building, for their random acts of kindness.

In lieu of flowers, if anyone chooses to, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.

Whenever a beautiful soul has left us, there is a trail of beautiful memories. Hold these memories close.
