Sue, Mike, Zak and Matthew
Our deepest condolences Sue and family.
We are here if you need us,
Kimberly, Nathaniel and Nicolas-Justice.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Jocelyne Blackie (née Frenette) in Ottawa, Ontario, on Monday, July 25, 2022. Robert's devoted wife for 55 years. She was a caring mother to Suzanne Blackie and a loving mother-in-law to Michel de Breyne and a proud grandmother to Zak and Matthieu. Her brother, Jean-Pierre, survives her and remembers her fondly. Aunt, cousin, godmother, friend of many people who loved and cherished her. A nurse with a caring attitude and a thirst for knowledge, Jocelyne has always been interested in people and the help she could give to everyone, especially those she loved and cared for. Jocelyne's charitable heart was a gift to everyone who met her. She may have been small, but she was a giant and a warrior. She will be sorely missed.
Two celebration of life services will be held, one in Ottawa and the other in Montreal, on dates to be determined later in the summer or early fall. Condolences and memories can be shared at www.fco-cfo.coop.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Cornerstone Housing for Women (https://cornerstonewomen.ca/), a charity that held an important place in Jocelyne and Robert's hearts.
