She was a devout Catholic and a longtime communicant of St. Anthony Church. She enjoyed cooking and mending family members clothing. She also had lots of fun "raising the roof" while playing cards with her three sisters. She especially enjoyed time spent with her entire extended family.

I only met her a couple of times, but I know how lively she was. She especially like having Al (Sonny) Laurendeau visit her when he was in Manchester and he so loved visiting her. I am sorry for the loss of a wonderful and loving woman.

It is with a heavy heart to have to bid farewell to our beloved Aunt Dree. She was such a joy to spend time with. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to spend some quality time with her during my time living at Young St. Her wit and love of family can't be matched. She was always ready for a game or chat. She is going to be missed but now can finally play cards with her sisters again and be back in Uncle Gerry's arms, as she had longed to do. Love you Aunt Dree! May you always have a few joker's in your "deck of 15"!

My honorary aunt, Tante Adrienne, and Oncle Gerry, were like family to my brother, Maurice and I. My parents, Becky and Andy Demers, were close friends with them for most of their lives, having met through the Alpine Club. I have many fond memories of visits to their home on Young Street and of outings and parties at my parents' home on Dix St. Adrienne's ready laugh and sunny disposition were a reflection of her warm and loving heart. Though life has taken us far away from Manchester, Ma Tante Adrienne will forever remain in our hearts. Denis & Midge Demers

I have nothing but fond memories of "Ma tante Adrienne." Though not a blood relative, our families were so close that we loved her as if she were. What I remember most was her good humor. That may have been the key to her longevity. My sincere condolences go out to Connie, Elaine, and the rest of the family. May you rest in the peace of the Lord "Ma tante".
