August 24, 1955 – August 23, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Barbara Marie Paluch-Berthiaume in Bacon Cove, Newfoundland, her beloved home away from home. Barbara was a kind, patient, devoted woman who was committed to helping and caring for all of those around her. She enjoyed sharing laughter with friends and colleagues and as a dedicated teacher of 30 years, she helped to shape the lives and attitudes of countless students. In retirement Barbara dedicated important time in her parish and community. She will be deeply missed by all of those who came to know her. Barbara is predeceased by her mother Lucy Paluch, and mother-in-law Dorothy Berthiaume. Barbara is survived by her dear husband Maurice (Moe) Berthiaume; loving son Robert James Berthiaume; daughter-in-law Lindsay Nolan; father Joseph (Joe) Paluch; sisters: Diane Poloczek, and Wendy Dukelaw; father-in-law Maurice D. Berthiaume; and many other extended family.
The family will receive their friends and family at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on the morning of Saturday September 28th 2019, starting at 9 o’clock.
