BONIN, Catherine Etha "Katie" - It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Catherine Etha "Katie" Bonin, on October 9, 1999, at the Strait Richmond Hospital in Evanston. She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her daughter, Myra (Mrs. David Logan), Winnipeg, Man.; and daughters-in-law, Patricia "Patty", Bertha, both of D'Escousse; Gladys, Saint John, N.B.; 10 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren. Katie joins her husband, Leonard; her sons, Alvin, Mark, Daniel Theodore "Ted" and four children who died in infancy. She was born in Poirierville, Richmond Co., on June 15, 1909, to the late Alexander and Alexandrine
(Poirier) Poirier. Katie was born in a family of 16 children. While growing up in this large family, everyone had their tasks. Katie became the "bread maker". She also entertained her mother in the evening playing the organ. This was done by ear, as written music was not always available. Katie completed her high school education in Poirierville. On September 15m 1930, she married the late Leonard Bonin in Moncton, N.B. and they started a poultry farm in Poirierville. To expand their business to poultry, dairy and mixed farming, they moved to D'Escousse in 1946. Katie was a loving wife and mother and a tireless worker. She was a very active church member and always had a deep concern for her many friends; everyone's problem became hers. She was a woman of great faith who strived always to love her beliefs through action. Katie enjoyed traveling, knitting, cooking and having family gatherings, loved to
socialize and would challenge anyone to a good game of cards along with a lively conversation. She will be sadly missed by all, especially her daughter Myra, who looked to her not only as a mother, but also as her best friend; spiritually as a teacher; her confidante, and whose company she simply enjoyed. Mother, we were fortunate to have known you and loved you for as long as
we did before the Good Lord called you home to rest in peace. Visitation will be held in St. Hyacinth's Parish Memorial Room today from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Tuesday morning, October 12, in St. Hyacinth's Roman Catholic Church in D'Escousse, at 10:30 a.m., with Rev.
