Obituary For Delly Tremblay

Version francaise suit

Delly Tremblay arrived at the gates of Heaven on April 28, 2021. The Guardian of the Gates asked her if she was ready. She responded: I am, I have loved and been loved; have suffered and rejoiced. I have laughed and cried, have spoken out and kept silent. I have experienced great losses and gained great joys. I have been hurt and I have been healed. I have been comforted and have comforted others. I have been a daughter, a wife, a mother, grandmother and a friend. I have filled my life with beauty and music and have shared that with others. Yes I have lived a full life and am at peace. I am ready. The Guardian nodded and turned, opened the gates. She stepped through the gates into the embrace of family and friends that had preceded her. She was home.
Delly was born April 6, 1934 in Quebec City, Canada. She was the only child of Jeannette and Jean-Baptiste Tremblay. She grew up in the Saguenay. She married a military man, Gilles Tremblay, and travelled across Canada and Germany. During this time she raised three children. She had a passion for music. For her it was her calling, as she directed the Church choir for almost three decades. She also enjoyed sewing and knitting for her children and grandchildren. One of her greatest joys was the outdoors. Even in the last years as dementia consumed her, you could find her sitting outside watching people go by.
She was a sweet and generous person. Her smile and laughter was cherished by all who came in contact with her. She had a sassiness and mischievous side people liked. She was very much loved and will be missed by all. “God be with her till we meet again.”
She is survived by her son Alain Tremblay and his wife Madonna, and her daughters Linda and Suzanne Tremblay. Her grandchildren: Melanie, Tiffany, Andre, Natalie, Kayla, Jessica, Megan, Chad, Josyanne, and their partners. Her great-grandchildren: Cassie, Lacey, Emma and Dave. And all of our fur babies.
A Celebration of Life will be held when Covid-19 isn’t as prominent in our lives. We will at that time let our family and friends know when and where this will be.

Delly Tremblay est arrivée aux portes du Ciel le 28 avril 2021.Le Gardien de la Porte lui demanda si elle était prête. Elle a répondu: Je suis, j’ai aimé et été aimé; J'ai souffert et je me suis réjoui. J’ai ri et pleuré, j’ai parlé et gardé le silence. J’ai connu de grandes pertes et gagné de grandes joies. J’ai été blessé et j’ai été guéri. J’ai été réconforté et j’ai réconforté les autres. J’ai été fille, femme, mère, grand-mère et amie. J’ai rempli ma vie de beauté et de musique et je l’ai partagée avec d’autres. Oui, j’ai vécu une vie pleine et je suis en paix. Je suis prêt. Le Gardien hocha la tête et se retourna, ouvrit les portes. Elle franchit les portes dans l’étreinte de la famille et des amis qui l’avaient précédée. Elle était à la maison.
Delly est née le 6 avril 1934 à Québec, Québec, Canada. Elle était l’unique enfant de Jeannette et Jean-Baptiste Tremblay. Elle a grandi au Saguenay. Elle a épousé un militaire, Gilles Tremblay, et a voyagé à travers le Canada et l’Allemagne. Pendant ce temps, elle a élevé trois enfants. Elle avait une passion pour la musique. Pour elle, c’était sa vocation, comme elle a dirigé le Chœur de l'Église pendant près de trois décennies. Elle aimait aussi coudre et tricoter pour ses enfants et petits-enfants. L'une de ses plus grandes joies était le plein air. Même au cours des dernières années, alors que la démence la consumait, vous pouviez la trouver dehors en train de regarder les gens passer.
C'était une personne douce et généreuse. Son sourire et son rire ont été chéris par tous ceux qui sont entrés en contact avec elle. Elle avait un côté impertinent et espiègle que les gens aimaient. Elle était très aimée et manquera à tous. "Que Dieu soit avec elle jusqu'à ce que nous nous revoyions."
Elle laisse dans le deuil son fils Alain et sa femme Madonna, ainsi que ses filles Linda et Suzanne. Ses petits-enfants: Mélanie, Tiffany, André, Natalie, Kayla, Jessica, Megan, Chad, Josyanne et leurs partenaires. Ses arrière-petits-enfants: Cassie, Lacey, Emma et Dave. Par tous nos bébés en fourrure.
Une célébration de la vie aura lieu après que Covid-19 soit moins important dans nos vies. Nous ferons alors savoir à notre famille et à nos amis quand et où ce sera.

    I first met Delly six or seven years ago, when she moved to Dartmouth, and visited with her regularly since then. As I listened to her life's story I realized that she often had not had it easy. I was amazed at her trust in God and her love for Him rather than becoming bitter. It showed in so many ways. One way that I will always remember is that when I would come for a visit to her apartment, I would bring write down a verse of scripture or quote from one of our church's leaders. She would take those and hang on to them. To me it was an expression of her faith and love for God's words. She was always so kind, welcoming and generous. On one occasion, she and Linda helped with making alterations to a dress for our daughter's prom... she was so handy with a sewing machine! We were so appreciative of their efforts on such short notice! Her love for her children and grandchildren was also evident as she spoke about them. I will miss her... she has left a lasting impression on me.

    I met Delly and her family after they moved to Dartmouth and started going to church. Delly loved church , especially the music. She sang in our church choir and the Dartmouth Seniors Choir too. She sang a solo in French for one of the Christmas concerts. I will miss her sweet spirit. Alice Green

    I was first introduced to Delly when she moved to Dartmouth, I was excited to speak French with her because I'm French Acadian. Too my surprise, however, she really wanted to practice her English. I was impressed with how well she did learn to communicate in English. Her hard work payed off. I enjoyed her company and she reminded me of my grandmother who is also in heaven. She always made us some special gifts for my family at Christmas time, and they touched me greatly. I'm so glad she is at home now and reunited with loved ones on the other side. She was an amazing example of faithfulness and persistence. T'il we meet again Delly. Xx

    I just finished reading Delly's obituary. I loved how it started. It captured her life beautifully. We met her when she first came to Church after she moved to Dartmouth. She found it hard because of her limited English but she still loved to be with the "saints" in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Dartmouth. She was a determined person and her persistence paid off. As she kept coming to Church and talking to members, even with French words at times, she kept getting better at English. We got to know her better when we started giving her rides to church. That was when we learned about the ups and downs of her life, how much she loved music, and how much she loved her friends and family here, and her church family back in Quebec. We missed her when she moved to Halifax for a time, and when she could no longer attend church because of advancing dementia. She will always have a special place in my heart. We are so happy that she is now well and reunited with family who left this earth before her. Janet MacLennan

    I so enjoyed getting to know Delly after she moved to Dartmouth. What a sweet spirit. Delly was so generous with her time and talents. She loved being in the choir at church and also the community choir. She loved going to church and often talked about how much it meant to her. I miss Delly, her sweet smile and spirit. She will always have a special spot in my heart.

    My condolences to all the family, especially Linda, Susie and Alan. Delly lived next door to us for about 5 years. She was always busy and a real seamstress. We shared a lot of good times. Remember her by the good times.
