Bella Michaud

December 7, 1909 - June 5, 2013

Tribute

The family of Bella Michaud are sad to advise that our beloved mother passed away peacefully with family at her bedside Cairnsmore Place in Duncan on June 5, 2013. Mom was born December 7, 1909 in St Eustache, Manitoba to Alphonse Lamontagne and Emma Desrochers. She was one of fifteen children. The family moved to Dumas, Saskatchewan in 1915. She and her first husband, Orhir Beauchesne, had six children. They moved to Victoria BC in 1946 and to Duncan in 1951, where they operated a restaurant in the Commercial Hotel. She was predeceased in 1953 by Orphir and in 1998 by her second husband, Lucien Michaud. She was also predeceased by her parents, ten brothers, three sisters, her daughters, Bernadette Kueber and Esther Campbell, her son, Albert, and her three son-in-laws, Bernard and Joseph Kueber and Bruce Campbell. Mom (Memere) is survived by her daughter Janet Kueber, two sons, Hector Beauchesne (Donna) and Ernest Beauchesne (Moira), her sister, Lou McLean, twenty grandchildren, thirty-seven great grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. The family greatly appreciates the care Mom received over the years from Drs Pullan and Thompson and Home Support staff, and more recently from second floor nursing staff at the Cowichan District Hospital and staff at Cairnsmore Place. Mom maintained a positive outlook throughout the ups and downs of her life. Her cheerful attitude and constant devotion to family and faith, was a wonderful example to all of us. She was much loved and will be greatly missed by family and friends. Prayers will be offered at St. Edward’s Church, 2085 Maple Bay Road, Duncan, BC at 7:00 pm on June 12, 2013. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Edward’s Church on June 13, 2013 at 11:00 am. Our thanks to Father Alfredo. Donation in Mom’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.
