Alexandrine Porelle (Roy), 94, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre with family at her side on January 6, 2021. Born in Petit-Rocher, New Brunswick, she was the daughter of the late Alphonse and Marie-Anne (Melanson) Roy.
Alexandrine moved to Cap-Pelé and McAdam, NB, with her family where they lived for several years. If she was ‘Mom,’ 'Alex,’ or ‘Mémère,’ her unconditional love, care, and spirit made her a rock of strength and support for those closest to her. Christmastime never came around without her homemade Acadian meat pâtés. Along with her love for wrestling, her radio played country music on CJSE day and night as she adored keeping up with the artists and their music. She was always ready to play Bingo or a game of cards. Most of all, she was eager to spend precious time with her loved ones to share stories and laughs, and leave them with a warm hug and smile.
Alexandrine will be deeply missed by her five children: Denise (Willy), Danny (Sheila), Raymonde, Giselle, and Mike (Lynn); six grandchildren: Rene (Krista), Tina (Gene), Sonia (Rebecca), Katelyn (Corey), Jordan (Liora), and Corey; two step-grandchildren: Catharine and Joe (Michelle); two great-grandchildren: Jessie and Emma; her sister-in-law, Marguerite Roy; as well as several loved and adored close friends and relatives.
She was predeceased by her husband, Aimé; and siblings: Méderic, Adrien (Lorette), Germaine (Albert), and Géralda (Félix).
Private visitation for immediate family has been arranged, with plans for an open celebration of life and interment to be announced in the spring at Sainte-Thérèse-d'Avila Cemetery in Cap-Pelé. In appreciation of the comfort and care she received at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre, memorial donations in Alexandrine’s memory may be made to the CHU Dumont Foundation (chudumont.ca). Funeral arrangements are in the professional care of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Moncton (858-1900).
