June 22, 1943 – March 19, 2009
Paulette died peacefully March 19, 2009 at home, after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
She was predeceased by her parents Valerien and Stella Gervais. She is survived by her beloved husband Sid Greenner, her four brothers, Ronald (Sylvia) and Robert, of London Ont., Andre (Diane) of Burlington Ontario and Paul Gervais of Timmins, Ontario: two sisters Marilyn Simpson of Courtenay, and Michelle Pladzyk of Timmins, Ontario. She also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews who loved their Aunt Polly dearly.
Paulette was born in Ansonville, Ontario and was employed at Ontario Hydro for 34 years. She was an outdoors girl who loved hiking with the Chicks with Sticks. Her love of travel took her to all seven Continents over the years with the most thrilling being her Antarctic trip, taken with her husband just one year ago. She was compassionate and spent her life mentoring those around her, leading by her positive example of Faith in action.. She took great joy in being with others, and always made the most of time spent with family and friends. In June 2008, with her husband she moved to her favourite place, the Comox Valley.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Dr. Simon Colgan, Dr Barbara Fehlau, and Home Care nurse Lynn who did everything in their power to keep her comfortable in her home.
A Mass of Christian Burial took place at Christ the King Roman Catholic Church Courtenay, Monday March 23rd at 11 am, followed by a reception in the lower hall. Cremation with burial is to take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ Centre 219 19th Ave SW, Calgary AB
