Couillard, Florence S. (nee Sly)

November 9, 1928 – January 22, 2005

Florence passed away peacefully, with her family at her side, at Qualicum Beach, BC. She will be sadly missed by Herman Couillard, her husband of 53 years. She will also be sadly missed by daughter Karen Couillard of Qualicum Beach, son David Couillard and grandsons Thomas and Jean-Pierre Couillard of Winnipeg, sisters Wilma and Shirley, and brother Elwood, all of Winnipeg, brother Eric of Edmonton, and many nieces and nephews. Florence was predeceased by her sisters Hazel and Thelma, and brother Raymond. The family would like to thank the staff of Arranglen Gardens and Dr. Gordon McIntyre for their compassionate care of Florence during her long and courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease. In lieu of flowers, Florence asked that donations be made to Parkinson Society of Canada or the Canadian Cancer Society. A private family service was held.

God looked around His garden

And found an empty place.

He then looked down upon the earth

And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering;

He knew you were in pain,

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.

He saw the road getting rough,

And the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered,

“Peace be Thine”.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

But you didn’t go alone.

Part of us went with you,

The day God took you home.
