It is with deep regret that the family announces the death of Bernice Florence Girard, on March 26, 2015, at the age of 84 years.

Bernice was the daughter of Patrick and Elizabeth (Daigle) Finnigan, born in Rogersville, New Brunswick, on March 13, 1931. Bernice was a resident of Coquitlam, Mission, Lac La Hache and Vernon, prior to moving to Beaumont, Alberta. Bernice was predeceased by her loving husband, Hector Henry Girard (July 11, 2013) a wonderful marriage of 63 years. We are sure they are off somewhere fishing and laughing, and can hear mom yelling “Hectoooorrrrr!!!!” Bernice was known for her quick wit and dedication to her family and friends. Bernice will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her sons Michael (Roxanne) and Marc (Bonnie); daughters Valerie (Grant) and Corinne (Edwin); eight grandchildren: Bryan, Chrissy, Norah, Darren, Brandon, Caitlin, Nolan and Jessica. She is also survived by five great-grandchildren: Roan, Taya, Abigail, Jaxon and just born Hank; sisters Dorina and Louina, brothers Clarence, Malcom, Leonard and Joe, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Her children and her family are forever grateful to have had her as a Mom, Grandma, GG and friend. Bernice leaves behind cherished family and so many special friends. All of you touched her life with your love and support, generosity and inspiration. Thank You.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life Service to be held Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 2:00 P. M., at the Royal Canadian Legion located at 1025 Ridgeway Ave, Coquitlam, BC V3J 1S4.
