OBITUARY: Elsie Alexis PREVOST (née Thomson) 1920-2018


Mrs. Elsie Alexis Prevost (née Thomson), wife of the late John Reginald Prevost, died peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, at the Jeffery Hale Hospital on July 11, 2018, at the age of 98.

Born near Aberdeen, Scotland, she immigrated to Canada as a war bride on the Île-de-France in 1946. Reg and Elsie first lived in Baie-Comeau, where their four children were born, moved to Sainte-Foy in 1960, and finally settled in Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier in 1976.

She is survived by her children: Sandra (Marc Loiselle), Lynne (Datchew Merid), Greg (Marie-Blanche Rémillard) and Fiona (Mitch Barmash); her grandchildren: Alexis, Natnael (Claudine Simard), Vanessa (Eric Jorgens), Julian (Malika Srivastava), Melinda (Sam Plamondon); her great-grandchildren: Noah and Balamani. Throughout her life, she found much fulfilment in many aspects of volunteering. She touched the hearts of many and we will deeply miss her personality, wit and charm.

A mass will be held on August 11 at 10:30 a.m. at Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier Church (1881 Boul. Valcartier, Valcartier Village). The family will receive condolences before the mass, from 9:30 a.m. Her ashes will be buried at Saint-Gabriel cemetery, facing the church.

The family would like to thank the staff of the CHUL as well as the personnel of the Palliative Care Unit at Jeffery Hale Hospital for the exceptional warmth and tenderness shown to Elsie during her short stay.

Donations in memory of Elsie may be made to the Jeffery Hale–Saint Brigid’s Friends’ Foundation, 1270 Chemin Sainte-Foy, Suite 2000, Quebec City, QC G1S 2M4.

Dearest Elsie
We will miss you're presence for a very long time to come. We are comforted in knowing that your life was indeed well lived and filled with an abundance of love right to the end and beyond.
