JOSEPH ANTONIO LACHAPELLE (published on February 24, 2009)

JOSEPH ANTONIO LACHAPELLE After a lengthy illness and surrounded by his family, Joseph Lachapelle passed away at the Notre Dame Hospital on Saturday, February 21, 2009 at the age of 78 years. Joe, son of Antonio and Louise Lachapelle was born March 21, 1930 in Deloraine, Manitoba. He married Madeleine Philippe on June 19, 1954. For many years, Joe and Madeleine worked together with his parents on the family farm, which they later purchased in 1968. Joe also worked part-time for the Rural Municipality of Grey as a grader operator for many years. In 1992, Joe and Madeleine retired and sold the family farm and moved to St. Claude. There they fulfilled a lifelong dream by moving into a new home built just for them. Joe took great pride in the appearance of their home and yard; while spending his leisure time fishing, hunting, playing cards, and spending time with his family and friends. He was a caring, loving husband, father and grandfather. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 54 years Madeleine (née Philippe). Also left to cherish his memory are his children: Diane (Réal) Dureault, Laurette (Rhéal) Gauthier, Lilliane (Robert) Rosset and Tony (Michelle) Lachapelle. He was a devoted grandfather of six grandchildren: Richard and Marc Gauthier, Michel and Ronald Rosset, Janelle and Braden Lachapelle. He is survived by his brother André (Noëla) Lachapelle and sisters Eva Dureault and Germaine Syrenne. Also left to mourn his passing is lifelong friend Laurent (Fatty) Syrenne. The family would like to thank all of the homecare workers and nurses at both the St. Claude Health Centre and Notre Dame de Lourdes Hospital. Also, thanks to Dr. Fickry, Dr. Viens and Dr. Hamilton for your excellent care during his illness.
