Hurtubise, Cecilia


1948 - 2023

Passed away on Saturday, March 11 at the age of 74.  Born in Barrie, Ontario in 1948.  Beloved partner and wife of Richard Verret of 22 years, mother of Gerry Montigny, sister of Anita Burhart (Larry), Ronald Hurtubise (deceased), John Hurtubise and Linda Goodwin (Brian).  Pre-deceased by Roger Hurtubise and Lilian Burke.  She will also be missed by countless extended family members and friends.

She worked at Nortel for nearly 30 years.  Cecilia was a master quilter, producing countless gorgeous works that she gave to friends and family far and wide.  These examples of her big heart and creativity will live on as constant reminders of her and represent her ever-present legacy to all those who knew her well. In addition, Cecilia enjoyed traveling, birdwatching in her large backyard from her sunroom, gardening, Facebooking and entertaining friends and family.  She particularly liked lavishing attention on her step-grandchildren Ronan, Darragh and Girvan including her unforgettable theme weekends. 

There will be a Celebration of Life Ceremony during the summer period with more details communicated as the event approaches. 

Donations to La maison Mathieu Froment-Savoie would be most welcome as the staff there were wonderful and ensured Cecilia's dignified and smooth passage to the afterlife.

Richard et famille

I was so sad to learn about my dear long time friend's passing. We met 45 years ago and have remained. I will miss our pub lunches in the Berg in the last 10 years and sharing many dinners at each others homes. Cill and Richard were the ultimate entertainers, always enjoyed our time with them. She made me a quilt throw for my 60th b'day which I cherish every day.

Terry joins me in offering our most sincere condolences to you Richard, but to her extended family whom she adored, especially her 3 little boys!
