Mainville, Carole

Décédée à Toronto, le mercredi 9 mai 2018 à l’âge de 60 ans, fille de feu Sylvio Mainville et de feu Andréanne Mainville (née Trottier) et sœur de feu qu’elle aimait tant — Rachel Mainville. Épouse bien-aimée de Gilles Doyon de Sudbury. Elle laisse dans le deuil ses enfants, Jovette Bélanger de Chelmsford (Andrew), Matthieu Bélanger de Legal, Alberta (Candice), Lee-Ann Vaillancourt de Bowmanville (Curtis), Raymond Doyon de Sudbury (Stephanie), sa belle-maman Colette Doyon (Hanmer), son frère Gregg André Mainville de Toronto (Donna), sa sœur Sylvie Mainville de Sudbury, son neveu et sa nièce — adorés comme ses propres enfants — Danny Minor (Lori) et Michèle Minor-Corriveau (Sydney) et sa tante et son oncle Claire (née Mainville) et Robert Gladu qui lui tenaient particulièrement à cœur. Elle laisse également dans le deuil ses petits-enfants adorés ; Abigail, feu Jacob, Mason, Nicholas, Jenna, Deklan, Braelyn, Evika et Diana. On s’en souviendra tous longtemps, Carole est née avec un don unique; la capacité de faire rire et d’animer les personnes autour d’elle. Les membres de sa famille, amis et collègues auront été nombreux à en bénéficier directement. Mais Carole avait bien d’autres talents. Chez Carole et Gilles, la cuisine est centrale. Pour accueillir la famille et la visite bien sûr comme le veut la tradition, mais pour cuisiner. Passionnée par la bouffe, Carole était toujours à la recherche de nouvelles recettes, de nouveaux ingrédients ; entretenir son jardin et ses fines herbes, préparer ses conserves et récolter ses tomates représentaient d’intenses joies quotidiennes. Si Carole prenait plaisir à préparer des plats, elle prenait surtout plaisir à en offrir. Généreuse à souhait, elle a nourri la famille immédiate, la famille élargie, mais les voisins aussi et d’autres encore dans le besoin. Carole savait que l’acte de donner contribuait directement à changer le monde. Elle a changé le monde en gâtant de nombreuses personnes, un plat à la fois. Elle nous a indéniablement toutes et tous alimentés avec ses plats cuisinés et sa générosité, mais avec sa sagesse, ses grandes valeurs de vie et son engagement envers l’humanisation du monde tout autant. Carole sera dorénavant et à jamais assise à notre table. Une messe commémorative aura lieu à l’Église St-Joseph, 3594 avenue Errington Nord, Chelmsford le mercredi 16 mai 2018 à 11 h. Après la célébration, la famille désire vous accueillir au Club 50 pour partager un repas. Si vous désirez faire un don, la famille serait reconnaissante que vous le dirigiez vers la Maison McCulloch Hospice.
Mot de la fin : Carole s’en voudrait de ne pas vous rappeler de signer votre carte de don d’organes.

Passed away in Toronto, on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at the age of 60, predeceased by Sylvio Mainville, by Andréanne Mainville (née Trottier) and a sister she loved so - Rachel Mainville. Beloved spouse of Gilles Doyon of Sudbury. She leaves behind her children Jovette Bélanger from Chelmsford (Andrew), Matthieu Bélanger from Legal, Alberta (Candice), Lee-Ann Vaillancourt from Bowmanville (Curtis), Raymond Doyon from Sudbury (Stephanie), her mother-in-law Colette Doyon (Hanmer), her brother Gregg André Mainville from Toronto (Donna), her sister Sylvie Mainville from Sudbury, her nephew and niece - adored as her own children - Danny Minor (Lori) and Michèle Minor-Corriveau (Sydney) and her aunt and uncle Claire (née Mainville) and Robert Gladu especially dear to her. Carole also leaves behind her beautiful grandchildren; Abigail, Jacob (deceased), Mason, Nicholas, Jenna, Deklan, Braelyn, Evika and Diana. Many of us will remember it well, Carole was born with a unique gift, the ability of making others laugh. Members of her family, friends and colleagues have been numerous of benefiting directly from her sense of humour. Carole was blessed with many other gifts. When gathered at Carole and Gilles’ home, the kitchen was a central place to greet family and friends of course as goes the tradition, but to cook as well. Passionate about food, Carole was always researching new recipes, new ingredients; caring for her garden and herbs, canning and harvesting her tomatoes represented intense daily joys. If Carole took great pleasure in preparing meals, she mostly took pleasure in offering them. Generous beyond compare, she has fed her immediate family, the extended family, but the neighbors too, and others still in need. Carole knew that the act of giving contributed directly to making the world a better place. So she made the world a better place, one dish at a time! Carole has undeniably nourished us with her food and generosity, but with her wisdom, her forthright values and her humanity. From now on, Carole will forever be seated at our table. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at St. Joseph Church, 3594 Errington Ave North in Chelmsford on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. After the Ceremony, the family invites you to share a meal at the Club 50. If you would like to make a donation, the family would be grateful if you directed it to Maison McCulloch Hospice.
Final word: Carole would want to remind you to sign your organ donor card.

  5. Dear Gilles, Jovette and all of Carole’s Family:

    So sorry to hear of Carole’s passing. We were absolutely heart broken to receive the news and many, many tears have been shed.

    We were planning to come up this summer to see you on our way to visit Manitoulin Island. We can now only take solace in the wonderful memories we have of this amazingly fine lady whom we loved like family.

    Whenever we got together, Gilles, maybe once a year if we were lucky, we found that it was as though no time had passed at all. And the connection between Carole and Sandi since they met in Japan was as strong as any I’ve seen. While Sandi is now on her way to Sudbury, I’m sorry I can’t come due to an injury and a doctor’s visit on the 16th. Shock, sadness, words fail to express our feelings. You are in our thoughts and hearts and prayers…Rick and Sandi
