It is with regret that we learned of the death of Jacqueline Carignan, Volunteer of God of Drummondville.
Jacqueline had been part of our associate group for over 10 years. In addition to being a mother, a grandmother and a great-grandmother, she was very involved in her community.
She practiced the attitudes of the Volunteers, especially “being of service.” She made it her mission.
Five years ago, at the request of several people who were experiencing solitude, Jacqueline, always helpful and attentive, set up a group called "Le petit Bonheur" (Simple Happiness) which was aptly named because it brought people together - women from the region who supported each other through various activities.
She received the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec medal for her involvement in her community.
We are very grateful for Jacqueline as she campaigned with faith and ardor as president and active member of AFÉAS (Women's Association for Education and Social Action), the group of the Immaculate Conception.
Our prayer is with you, Jacqueline. We thank you for having come into our lives as a witness to the great concern for those most in need.
Jacqueline B., leader of the Volunteers Group
