SARTY, Simone Marie
Born in Racine, Quebec, Simone, as a military member and a wife of one, served and lived in many provinces across Canada and Germany.
However, she lived in Victoria and the Comox Valley for 25 years and considered this her home. She is survived by her husband Patrick, sons Steven (Claudia) of Santa Maria, California, Mark (Natasha) of Windsor, Ontario and daughter Selena of Comox, BC. Grandchildren – Samantha, Marcel, Byron, Elise and Simon. Brother Gaston (Helene) of Montreal, QC, sisters Marie-Jeanne, Windsor, QC, and Ghislaine (Georges-Henri) of Sherbrooke, QC.
She is predeceased by her son Michael, parents Evariste and Rose Alice Chaperon and brothers Marcel and Richard.
Simone passed away at home after a shocking and devastating battle with cancer. A tummy ache in June eventually took her life in August.
Simone has many friends here in the valley and throughout Canada and the United States. She was a lady with a smile that would light up a room, a fantastic sense of humour, and, of course, she enjoyed music and people. Simone loved life and everything it had to offer. We love you sweet lady and miss you so much.
There will be a “Celebration of Simone’s Life” on Sunday, September 9th at 2 pm at 888 Komox RCAF Wing, 1298 Military Row, Comox, BC.
Simone loved smiling faces and would often comment on a person’s smile when in a group. She contributed to many children’s charities but especially to “Operation Smile” where doctors volunteer their time to correct cleft lips in children of developing countries. So, in lieu of flowers, if you wish, please contribute to www.operations.org/Victoria in Simone’s name.
