This funeral card is in memory of Yvonne (Belair) Fournier, my Dad’s cousin. The card measures 11.5 cm x 6.5 cm (approximately 4 ½” x 2 ½”). It was sent to my parents in March 1989, who weren’t able to attend Yvonne’s funeral.

Yvonne was born on 24 December 1926 in Ste-Cécile-de-Masham, Gatineau County, Quebec. She was baptised there the following day, with her maternal grandparents present as her godparents. Yvonne was the third, but eldest surviving child of Joseph and Corinne (Gingras) Belair, having four younger sisters (one of whom died young) and one brother. Her father Joseph was my grandfather Fred’s younger half-brother.

A few months before turning 22, Yvonne married Aldoria Fournier on 26 August 1948 at the parish church in Masham. They were the parents of seven children, six boys and one girl.

Yvonne died on 11 February 1989 in Hull (Gatineau), about 34 km (about 21 miles) south-east of Masham.
