It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. Andree passed away peacefully at Pioneer Manor at the age of 95.  She was predeceased by her husband Gerry, her parents, Oscar and Jeanne (Grenon) Noel de Tilly, her brother Hubert (Velma dcd) and sister Paule Bouchard (Aurele dcd) as well as her sisters-in-law Georgette Harris (Len dcd), Lorraine Nadeau and brother-in-law Raymond Ethier.  Her family consisted of her 4 children, Monique (Edmund Newton), Robert (Francine), Pierre (Deborah Beal) and Denis (Janice Graham dcd) and her cherished grandchildren, Josee Jarvis (Zanth), Alexandre Ethier (Shawna Grandchamp) and Mathieu Ethier.  She will be sadly missed by her brothers Dr. Bernard Noel de Tilly (Eustelle), Ernest Noel de Tilly (Yvette) and sisters, Jeannine van Berkel (Gerry dcd) and Marie Barrette (Gerald dcd) and her sister-in-law Donna Appelt (Hubert dcd), as well as by her brother-in-law Benoit Ethier (Margie dcd), and sister-in-law Jacqueline Comb (Fred Wright) and brother-in-law Gerry Nadeau (Lorraine dcd).  Many nieces and nephews as well as lifelong friends will remember her fondly as the teacher “who never quit teaching”.  The family would like to express its heartfelt appreciation to the amazing staff at Pioneer Manor, Tulip wing for their exceptional care and compassion. A special thank you to Olga and Jodie who understood her and cared for Andree so well.  There will be no visitations, but a private funeral mass will be held June 26, 2021, at Ste- Anne’s for the family and streamed on-line through at 1:30p.m. On-line condolences can be posted at and donations to Better Beginnings Better Future Sudbury through their website or by mail, or your charity of choice would be greatly appreciated.  May you rest in peace maman in the arms of your Gerry and surrounded by family.
