Well Known Resident Of Buctouche Dies Buctouche, N.B., May 11 (Special) -
Death came unexpectedly yesterday to one of this community's oldest and most respected residents in the person of Mrs. Marguerite Cormier. Mrs. Cormier suffered a sudden heart seizure at approximately 11 a.m. Saturday morning and died two hours later at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Dr. and Mrs. G.C. Leger. To her family and many friends Mrs. Cormier's death came as a severe shock. Although she had suffered from a heart condition for several years Mrs. Cormier had enjoyed good health during the past winter and was up and about the house as usual on Saturday morning. She was 83 years of age and was a native of Saint Mary's, Kent Co., Mrs. Cormier was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hypolite Albert, a prominent New Brunswick family. Her husband, Maxime Cormier predeceased her by 23 years. Mrs. Cormier had been a resident of Buctouche for the past 15 years and had a wide circle of friends to whom her passing will bring genuine regret. Despite her advanced age, Mrs. Cormier was quite active and took a deep interest in current events. She was endowed with a keen mind and had an excellent memory. The radio provided one of her chief means of keeping up with world affairs. To the day of her death Mrs. Cormier had maintained an interest in community, world and spiritual affairs. In religion she was a Roman Catholic and was a devoted member of St. John the Baptist Church and was also a member of the Women of St. Anne Society and several other parish and church organizations. To her many friends Mrs. Cormier's fine Christian way of life was a source of inspiration and the exemplification of the virtues of Christianity, justice and charity. Gentle and unassuming in manner she was beloved by all who made her acquaintance. Surviving are six daughters and two sons. The daughters are Mrs. Mary Bourque, Mrs. Aquilla Berth, Mrs. George Leger and Miss Joanne, all of Buctouche and Mrs. Andre L'Amoureux and Mrs. Alderic Cormier of Leominster, Mass.; the sons are Gonzaque, Moncton, Cyrice, St. Mary's Kent county. Twenty-nine grandchildren and one great grandchild also survive. Funeral service will be held Tuesday to St. John the Baptist Church for Solemn Requiem Mass at 9:30 o'clock. Interment in the family lot in the Roman Catholic cemetery.
