CORCORAN, Bernadette (Bernice) Viola (née Larivière)


Into God’s loving arms she was received in her 91st year on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

Faithful and loving wife of the late William J. P. Corcoran and cherished mother of Sandra Gordon (Fred), Linda Dearing (late Brian), William (May), Peter (Christina), Patrick (Pauline), Timothy (Nancy) and Christopher (Gae). Adored by her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.

Her many accomplishments included working with Census Canada, as well as volunteering for the Girl Guides of Canada, Birthright and other local causes.

She loved life and lived it with devotion to God and her family and showed us what it meant to be a wonderful parent and responsible citizen. Her loving smile, her indomitable spirit and her gentle laughter, like the flowers of her beautiful garden, will be forever missed by all of us.

May God grant her eternal rest and keep her, forever, in His love.
