Tombstone Tuesday - Louis and Marguerite Lavoie
This was a pretty easy start to my collection of gravestone pictures. Louis Lavoie and Clemence Wilhelmina Marguerite Richard were my paternal grandparents. My dad told me which cemetery to look in (the St. Boniface Roman Catholic Cemetery), though it took a lot of walking around in the blistering heat to find the right section.
I never met my grandfather, since he died before I was born, but my grandmother, or mémère as we called her, was an important figure in our family when I was growing up, sort of the head of the family. They had 6 children (one of whom is my dad), 10 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren (so far!).
