Louise Marie Josephine Rabu


(née Lezoraine)

An adventurous 92-year journey, which began on August 15th, 1919 in Brittany, France and continued on to Australia (1949), then Winnipeg (1958) and eventually Vancouver Island (1971), ended on November 5th, 2011 when Louise decided it was time to join Marcel, her loving tango partner of 67 years whom she missed so much. This true Bretonne, who taught 3 generations of Rabu’s how to wield a crêpe pan, will be remembered for her fierce strength, love, wit and her love of theatre, dogs and ‘la famille’. She leaves behind a large family of admirers: her 3 children Michel Rabu (Kim Black), Lily Brennan (Peter Brennan), Joëlle Rabu (Dusty Rhodes); her 8 grandchildren: Daniel Rabu (Angela), Rachel Diamont, Yanik Allard, Leah Jansen, Nicole Ronse (Peter), Patrick Brennan, Jace Rhodes (Lisa) and Nico Rhodes (Jamie), and her 11 great-grand children: Gabrielle, Adrien, Alexandre, Joshua, Dominique, Tyler, Nathan, Laurent, Sasha, Alexander and Luca.

By request, there will be no public service, as the family will gather in a private ceremony.
