Brosseau-Démoré, Lorraine

It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Lorraine Brosseau-Démoré with family by her side on Saturday, February 27, 2021 at the age of 62 years. Cherished daughter of Polydor, (predeceased - February 27, 2000, the same date, 21 years ago) and Angèle Brosseau (nee Carriere). Beloved wife of Marc Démoré. Loving stepmother of Brigitte Thompson (Don), step grandmother (memère) to Olivia. Dear sister of Susanne Rehel, Claude “Buck” Brosseau (Lynn), Marc “Bidou” (Jill). She will be lovingly missed by her nieces, nephews and great niece and nephew, for them she was matante “LouLou”. Lorraine enjoyed going to the cottage, she had an amazing talent for painting, crafts, stained glass, sewing, playing the guitar and mandolin. She also enjoyed her 30-year career in the Biology department at Laurentian University and will surely be missed by her co-workers and students. Donations in Lorraine’s memory can be made directly to the Maison McCulloch Hospice or the Northeastern Cancer Centre and would be greatly appreciated. A special thank you to the Bayshore nurses. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no visitation or service, a Celebration of Life will be held at camp, at a later date.

  2. Lorraine was a beautiful friend I met over 40yrs ago in Kingston. We were fortunate to team up as roommates later in Guelph and renew that friendship. She returned to Sudbury for a job at the University and was happy to be home, but we kept in touch as time marched on. Lorraine loved life, travel, family, Camp and of course Marc. Our sincere condolences to Marc and the whole family. We will miss her dearly. Rest in peace Lorraine.

  4. It’s true that not many people dislike going on a trip but no one can share the traveling passion like Lorraine. I’ll never forget the slide shows of her trips. Marc, know that your friends love you and will always remember your great love story today and always.

  5. Lorraine was the first person to hold my hand as I made my baby steps into teaching. This was 2004 and this seems like yesterday. Lorraine was an inspirational woman who took such good care of our students, undergraduate and graduate students alike, but especially the latter. She was a mother and often the first person students talked to about the many challenges they encountered, especially when coming from afar. Lorraine was a barista, making that Biology coffee break so important in creating bonds between staff and faculty. Lorraine was a true bilingual, always going above the language cleavage to make our department stronger. Lorraine was a wife who loved Marc so much, she could not stop talking about their travels, past and future. Lorraine was my friend who I could count on at every happy and not so happy moments of my life in Canada
    Lorraine, tu nous manques.

  6. Lorraine took myself and all of the graduate students under her wing – when it came to writing, instructing, and grading laboratory exercises to undergraduate students, we would have been lost without her. Later, as a technologist and her colleague, I spent many coffee breaks and lunches chatting in the stockroom. The sound of her laughter will echo forever in my heart.
