We Remember

PICHE, Fleurette Doriange

August 24, 1933 — February 8, 2024

On February 8, 2024, it is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to our dear mother in her 90th year in Kelowna, BC, at Hawthorn Park, with her loving children surrounding her as she passed.

Fleurette was born in Timmins, Ontario on August 24, 1933. She married and had four loving children. Fleurette went back to school in 1969 and earned her university degree in order to become a French immersion teacher, her true passion.

Fleurette’s other passion was travelling. Once she retired, she enjoyed seeing places like Hawaii, Australia, France, Costa Rica, Alaska, and Disney World.

Fleurette married for a second time to Adrien Piche in 1980, he was her childhood sweetheart and her true love for 38 years until his passing.

Fleurette is survived by her children, Mark Watson (Doreen), Dianna Watson (Gilly Alook), Joanne Watson (Stan Thompson), and Charlane Pursell (Ian), and her stepchildren, Marc Piché (Marti Harder), Denis Piche (Jennie), and Robert Piché (Paivi).

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Fleurette’s favourite organizations: the Gospel Mission and the local Women’s Shelter.

    We shared many happy memories with your mom, doing odd jobs watching her smile and tell things from her past and what she wanted to do. I think of her often since she moved to the assisted living now in her passing I’ll remember the times with her. Kathy and I are very sorry for your loss Dave Amdrew

  • Barb Eagle and Gord Hamilton says:

    We were sadden to hear of the passing of Fleurette, her and Adrian became good friends with Gord and I when we moved in next door to them in Kamloops. I remember when her and I stared walking together. Even though she was almost 15 years older than me, she would be the one on the phone saying “Are you ready for our walk?’ I missed her and our walks together when she moved away, she had so many stories to tell me about her life and she was always there to listen and what a sense of humour, so many laughs we had!
    Gord and myself send our deepest condolences to her family.
