Friday’s Faces from the Past: Remembering Johanne Laneville - Correction


A couple of days ago, I wrote a post about the passing of an old family friend, Johanne Laneville. After reading her obituary today, I realized that my post contained a couple of errors, so I’m posting the corrections here. First, Johanne’s name is spelled Johann in her obituary, and second, she was the mother of three, not two, children. My apologies to her family and my readers.

Maurice and Johanne Laneville

A family friend passed away two days ago on Boxing Day, December 26th.

Her name was Johanne (Lavictoire) Laneville, and she was the wife of Maurice and the mother of two children.

I remember Johanne as a lively, happy and fun person. She always had a smile and a twinkle in her eye.

Her husband Maurice was a cousin of my late uncle Adrien Laneville, who married my Dad’s sister Joan.

Johanne and Maurice were part of my parents’ circle of friends in our home town of Timmins, Ontario.

Although we lost touch with Johanne and her family after we moved to British Columbia almost 40 years ago, I still have fond memories of visiting her home when I was young.

The above photo of Johanne and Maurice was taken at our house at Christmas about 1961.

Rest in peace, Johanne.
