Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Joseph (Joe) LaFrance of Edmonton announces his passing on January 29, 2019 at the age of 88 years.
Joe is survived by his daughter, Monica: sons, Tim and Joe (Linda); grandchildren, Brayden, (Shauna), Brianne (Jason) and Liam; great grandchildren, Dane and Asher; and sisters-in-law, Cathy and Irene.
Born and raised on the farm at St. Brides, AB, Joe was the eleventh of twelve children. He is predeceased by his wife, Inga; parents, Cyrice and Clarina; brothers, Noel, Charles, Phillip, Omer and Marcel; sisters, Cecile, Soeur Agnes, ASV, Soeur Jeanne d’Arc, SPB and Emma; infants, Therese and Vital; and numerous fondly remembered nieces and nephews.
Throughout his life, Joe demonstrated his enduring faith through his participation as a Director or member of Catholic Charities, The Sign of Hope Campaign, Catholic Social Services. Eucharistic Ministry, Knights of Columbus and as a founding member of Safe House.
Accepting each day as it came, his “joie de vivre” came from the simplest things in life.
A Visitation will be held on Thursday, Feb 7 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church, 210 Haddow Close, Edmonton, followed by a Funeral Mass at 11:00 a.m. Immediately following the Mass, a reception will be held in the Church Hall.

Monica, Joe, Tim and families. I am so sorry to hear of your Joe's passing last week. Heartfelt sympathies for your loss and for his suffering with that awful disease. I hope happy memories of times with your Dad and a grandfather will remain with you. I have fond memories of Joe in small adventures, not the least of which was a visit a few years ago to St. Brides. It was wonderful to hear him fondly reminisce and describe life on the farm. I pray for your strength and togetherness as a family during these difficult days. Doug Cameron and family.

Monica, Tim, Joe and family,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. May God give you strength during this difficult time of your loss.
May God Bless You,
Love,
Murielle Davey
