Obituary of Rachel Deyoung

Lower Sackville, died peacefully at Sagewood Long Term Care Home, not long after celebrating her 76th birthday.

Rachel was a beloved wife, cherished mother, sister and aunt.  She will be fondly remembered for her kind heart and loving smile by friends and large extended family, many of whom enjoyed her blueberry pies, tea biscuits, roast chicken dinners and Acadian rabbit pies. 

Sincerest thanks and gratitude to all staff and volunteers at Sagewood who provided kind and compassionate care for the past year and ensured there was always joy in her days.

Rachel was previously resident at the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home and the family wishes to thank all members of her earlier care team.  The family wishes to thank Dr. Steve Gallant for providing many years of medical care, Dr. Eric MacNeill, for providing emergency care, and Chris Boyd for providing legal services at a difficult time. 

Rachel was predeceased by her loving husband, Joe Deyoung, her parents, Clara and Benedict Boudreau and by her brother, Blaise Boudreau. 

A celebration of life is planned for the Spring, a time when Rachel’s heart was lifted with the sighting of her first robin.
