It is with great sadness that the family of Claude Talbot announces his passing at the age of 83. A dedicated husband, father, and grandfather, Claude will be dearly remembered and missed by his loving wife of 58 years, Marilyn (nee Kwast); son Rick (Sonya); daughter Donnalee (Glenn) Ferguson; and grandchildren Rachel Ferguson (Willem le Duc), Samantha, Benjamin, and Hannah. Claude leaves his sisters Adrienne (Albin) Lebeau, Monique Ahle, Suzanne (Rod) Boudreau, brother Denis, sister-in-law Linda, brother-in-law Emile Cenerini, brother-in-law Robert Kwast, and numerous nieces and nephews. Claude was predeceased by his parents, Napoleon and Clarisse (nee Lapierre); sisters Agnes; and brothers Marcel, Andre, Robert, Gerard, Leo-Paul, and Aurele. A mass of Christian burial was held on Thursday, July 13 at 11:00 a.m. at St. James Catholic Church in Vernon, BC. The family extends a heartfelt thank you to all staff at North Okanagan Hospice Society, Dr. Timothy Gilhooly and Dr. Ed Hardy, for the care and compassion they have shown Claude and his family.
