Bernadette Dansereau

Bernadette Dansereau

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Bernadette Dansereau into the care of her Savior on Thursday, January 29, 2015. She died peacefully at her home in Sorrento, BC surrounded by her family.

Bernadette was born on March 8, 2008 in Salmon Arm and was very much looking forward to her seventh birthday because she was going to have her first big birthday party with friends. She was extremely shy but sweet and was a ray of gentle sunshine wherever she went. She loved to dance ballet, play at the beach and make sandcastles with Daddy, play video games with Johanna, play everything with Catherine, rough house with her brothers, and bake with Mommy.

She will be greatly missed by her loving parents, Marc and Patti; brother Paul (Christina) and niece Ruth from Revelstoke, brother Joseph and sisters Johanna, Catherine and Zoe all from Sorrento, grandparents, Andre and Suzanne Dansereau of Sorrento and Mary and Larry Scherr of Ottawa, numerous aunts, uncles, and 22 cousins.

A prayer service will be held at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Salmon Arm on Friday, February 6 at 7:00 pm followed by Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday morning at 10:00 am, with Father George LaGrange, OMI, the Celebrant. Interment will follow in Mount Ida Cemetery. Reception will be held in the hall at St. Joseph’s.

If so desired, contributions in memory of Bernadette may be made to the Children’s Hospital in Vancouver or Canuck Place also in Vancouver.
