Friday’s Faces from the Past: A Desgroseilliers Cousin’s Wedding

Jacqueline Desgroseilliers with her sisters at a cousin's wedding

This early 1970s photo of my mother Jacqueline shows her and her sisters at their cousin’s wedding. Mom thinks it might be Nicole Desgroseilliers, who married in September 1974. If she’s correct, then Nicole is the youngest child of Joseph Desgroseilliers, who passed away suddenly when she was three weeks old. (Joseph was the youngest sibling of Mom’s father, Eugène.)

From left to right are Normande, Jacqueline, Simone, the bride, Mariette, Madeleine, and Jeanne d’arc. It was rare for Mom and her sisters to be all gathered in one place as adults, so it's wonderful that the photo not only celebrates Nicole’s wedding, but also records that the six Desgroseilliers sisters were at the event.
