Simone also leaves to mourn Léonel's family, his two sisters, Simone (Normand) Dacquay and Mariette (Grant) Campbell; and five brothers Norbert (Donna), Arthur (Lorie), Roland (Lorraine), René (Lorraine) and Richard (Janet). She was predeceased by her parents Félix and Blanche (née Lambert); one brother Henri in 1953; her mother-in-law Rose (née Chappellaz) and by her father-in-law Léon Rey. Simone est née à St-Claude le 27 novembre 1941. Durant son enfance, elle a fait sa part pour aider sur la ferme tout en étudiant à l'école Parthenay. A l'âge d'onze ans, elle a subit une dure épreuve lorsqu'elle est tombée malade de polio et a perdu son frère aîné Henri. Elle a travaillée comme coiffeuse et elle a épousé Léonel Rey le 2 juillet 1966. Ensemble, ils ont oeuvré pour élever leur famille et réussir sur la ferme. Gentle and humble, Simone had a big heart. She battled cancer with strength and courage and helped many others with her words of encouragement. Simone found joy in spending time with her family as well as fishing and playing bingo. She will be lovingly remembered for her friendly nature and her quiet smile.
