She was predeceased by her husband Léon in 1983. Hortense was the youngest sibling of seven children and has only one surviving brother, Louis (Régia) Lahaie. She married in 1949 and moved to St. Eustache, Manitoba, where Hortense and Léon raised nine children: Lucien (Pearl) Senécal, Gérald (Dianne) Senécal, Lorraine (Denis Beaudry), Edmond (Marilyn) Senécal, Diane (Gérald Bérard), Noella (Dirk Nyhof), Anita, Charles (Elaine) Senécal, Guy (Monique) Senécal, and Norman (Heather) Alain, a special nephew she called her own; 19 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
