MRS. JANIE MAE GERVAIS 1915-2004 It is with deepest sorrow that our family announces the death of a devoted mother, cherished grandmother and adoring great grandmother on Monday July 12th, 2004 at the Bingham Memorial Hospital in Matheson. Janie Mae was the only child of John and Minnie Morrison of Porcupine. She was predeceased by her loving husband Wilfred Demasse in 1996. Janie Mae is the loving mother of Patricia Hebert of Porcupine, Wilfred (Mary Anne) of Victoria, B.C., and Jacques of the Schumacher Extendicare Nursing Home. She is survived by 10 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Janie Mae was a woman of incomparable style, beauty, grace and talent. She will be remembered for fresh oven-baked cookies, fun-loving picnics on the living room floor, warm and wonderful walks up the Old Farm Road and her wry sense of humour. For many years her beautiful singing voice could be heard during the Masses at St. Jude’s Church in Porcupine. My brother Wilfred’s favourite memories of his precious mother include the family sing-alongs around the piano, accompanied by Auntie Claire Gervais. He attributes our wonderful love of music to our mamma and remembers her teaching us “Sentimental Journey” for voice and guitar. Janie Mae has written an insightful collection of inspirational poetry, steeped in her rich understanding of human nature, and her deep spiritual warmth. Our darling mother, grandmother and great grandmother will be so sadly missed and forever cherished for her rare beauty, her unyielding loyalty, her abundant generosity and her warm-hearted goodness towards her loving family members. Remembrance donations will be graciously received in her memory to Bingham Memorial Hospital or Rosedale Manor made through the funeral home. A Mass of the Resurrection will be held at St. Jude’s Church in Porcupine with Fr. Lionel Tanguay officiating on Friday July 16th, 2004 at 10 a.m.
