It is with deep sadness  that we announce the passing of May Painchaud (nee Shepley) on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, with her family by her side. May was just short of her 88th birthday and had been a resident of Poseidon Personal Care Home for the past while.

Left to survive May are her sister Norma Bearisto (Nels); sisters-in-law Claire (Bernie), Nicole, Brenda (Peter), nieces and nephews Deanna, Dan, Robert (Lise), Chantal (Brian), Dominique (Brad), Denise (Bruce), Melanie (Gord), Dan (Michelle), Karl (Meghan) Justin (Darci), Kalyn (Brad) and Mack. She was predeceased by her husband Bernard, brothers-in-law Marcel, Robert and sister-in-law Valerie.

May was a longtime resident of Elmwood where she was a member of Gordon King Memorial United Church. She worked for many years with the Provincial Government, assessment branch. Nature and the great outdoors were very important to her. She and Barney loved Grand Beach and Birds Hill Park where they would go walking and cross country skiing. Flowers and birds were her passion and she loved her rock garden. She made numerous trips to Hawaii and England. Music was a big part of her life as well as golf with her friends and a great interest in the British monarchy.

On Friday, June 15, 2018 May’s Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. in Gordon King Memorial United Church, 127 Coburg Avenue.

Our family would like to thank the fourth-floor staff at Poseidon for their gentle care of our loved one.
