Here is the obituary for 


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Colette on September 17, 2018, in her 92nd year. 

Colette was born and raised in Trois-Rivières.  She met the love of her life Arthur (Art) Kavanagh, they were married on October 11, 1952 and moved to Montreal.  In 1965, they settled in Chateauguay to raise their family. 

Leaving to mourn is her adoring husband of 65 years Art; loving daughters Sharon (Giovanni) and Kelly (Scott); Nanny to her most cherished grandsons Michael (Leighanne), Matthew, William and Thomas; many nieces and nephews.  

Colette treasured time spent with her family and always looked forward to planning family gatherings, sometimes planning months in advance!  Colette will always be remembered for her gentle ways, her kindness and most important the love for family.
