MAISONNEUVE, Aline Besner

~ February 1929 - April 2024 ~ 


Though we need to weep your loss, 

You dwell in that safe place in our hearts, 

Where no storm or night or pain can reach you. 

John O’Donohue



Aline, beloved Mother, Mother-in-law, Grandmother and Great Grandmother left us at  age 95. 


Aline was kind and caring, gentle and selfless. She was an island of peace and  tranquility that you could count on always. Being in her presence was like a warm cup  of tea on a cold winter’s day. 


Aline was a theologian, a talented seamstress, a gifted gardener and a master  craftsman. Over the past five decades she has coaxed literally tons of the Gatineau  Hill’s finest stones into stunning retaining walls and garden terraces that adorn her  beloved cottage property. She was an extraordinary woman! 


We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at the Wakefield General  Hospital short term wing, as well as the staff at the Palliative Care Wing of the Hull  Hospital. We will be forever grateful to you for your kindness, compassion and caring  during Aline’s fragile and vulnerable last few months. 


And so to you Aline, Maman, Grand-maman, Grand-mamie, La Belle et La Douce, after  a lifetime in the service of others, we say a tearful and loving goodbye. We will miss you, we love you, God speed. 


– Your loving family
