Berthiaume; and many other extended family.

Condolence from Fr. A. Joseph Lazar on September 4th, 2019 6:33 pm

Words are inadequate to express my heartfelt sympathies to Moe the beloved husband and her son Robert and his wife Lindsay at the sudden departure of angelic person Barbara Marie Berthiaume.
She has been a woman of great faith all along her life. She was an exemplary teacher to the students, best friend to her colleagues, and compassionate person to all her neighbours.
In Holy Family Parish community, she was a vibrant participant in all faith activities, as a reader, communion minister and volunteer.
She was an amazing lover of the Bible – she had insatiable thirst for the Word of God, it was her primary joy to come for Bible Study Group Sessions, and Bible Lectures, She was all the time busy in taking notes on discussions. She was an excellent student of Sacred Scripture. She is very much loved and now missed by all at Holy Family. I believe that Barbara has gone to meet the Biblical Personalities and God’s community in heaven. May her Soul find joy in God. My prayerful sympathies to Moe and his family and friends.
Fr. A. Joseph Lazar, Associate Pastor, Holy Family Parish, Bolton, Ontario
