Micheline Colette Coats Obituary

In Memoriam: Micheline Colette (Bouchard) Coats

Colette’s departure on November 19th leaves behind a profound void in our hearts. Her 75 years among us were a testament to love, fortitude, and boundless compassion.

As a guiding light and cherished matriarch, Colette’s presence transcended generations. Her nurturing soul infused our home with laughter, her recipes, and a comforting embrace that wove the family together in warmth.

Facing life's trials with unwavering grace, Colette’s strength was matched only by her ability to connect deeply with everyone. Her wisdom, stories, and simple gestures resonated with all fortunate enough to know her.

As we bid farewell, our hearts find solace in the eternity of her spirit, surrounded by the love she gifted so generously. 

Colette is preceded by her parents Reggie and Georges Bouchard. Colette is survived by the love of her life for 54 years Keith, their 3 children; Michelle (Doug), Danielle (Greg), Philippe (Danielle) ,her daughter Michelle Bonner ,her 10 grandchildren, and her 4 great grandchildren, her sisters Lise and Ginette and her brother Jacques and her best friend of 63 years Janice Swarens( Allen). 

May she rest in eternal peace, her legacy a guiding light for generations to come.
