1935-2013 – It is with great sad­ness that we an­nounce the pass­ing of Yolande Marie (Thibault) Hack­ett on Septem­ber 24th af­ter a coura­geous fight against cancer. Yolande is the daugh­ter of Charles Thibault and Marie-Ange Le­feb­vre of Stanstead, Que­bec and the 10th child in a fam­ily of 14 chil­dren. She is sur­vived by her hus­band of 55 years, Michael W. Hack­ett. Yolande is the mother of six chil­dren: Pa­trick (Barbara), Marie (de­ceased), Michael, Frank (Re­nay), Winfield, and Claude (Marie). Yolande will be sadly missed by her four grand-daugh­ters; Kyla, Michelle, Ém­i­lie and Kather­ine as well as nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews. She is also sur­vived by sev­eral broth­ers and sis­ters; Denise, Claire, Rachel, Jea­nine (Léonard), Gil­berte, François (Louise) and Monique (Robert); and her broth­ers and sis­ters-in-law; Cora, Eva-Rose, Ryan (Mar­garet), Anne (Robert) and Win (Lorie). Strong in her faith, Yolande was for­ever de­voted to her fam­ily. She was an avid lover of na­ture, at­ten­tive to those in need and a pas­sion­ate care­giver to all an­i­mals. Yolande and her fam­ily would like to thank the staff and vol­un­teers at both the CHUS Fleu­ri­mont and the pal­lia­tive care unit at the Ma­gog Hos­pi­tal for their kind and caring help. A fu­neral ser­vice was held on Mon­day Septem­ber 30th, at 11 a.m. at Sacré-Coeur Catholic Church (Sainte-Trinité) on Duf­ferin St. in Stanstead. In lieu of flow­ers, Yolande and her fam­ily have re­quested that dona­tions be made in her name to the Ma­gog CSSS hos­pi­tal pal­lia­tive care unit.
