It is with profound sadness that the family announce the passing of Therese Pauline Fournier, beloved wife of Aime E. Fournier at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital, Medicine Hat on Thursday, February 22, 2018, at the age of 85 years. She was born on November 13, 1932, in Gravelbourg, SK. Therese and Aime were married on November 12, 1956, in Lebret, SK., and together raised their five children.  Therese was a loving wife and mother and cared for the children and their home. Therese was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Her loving nature and tender, big heart of encouraging and putting others first was her ultimate gift to her family.  Therese loved reading, knitting, cooking, playing cards, dancing and above all enjoyed laughing along with her family. She followed her children and grandchildren through their sporting activities and loved to watch Medicine Hat Tigers hockey. She could knit, drink tea and have a nap all at the same time.  Therese was a devote member of her Catholic faith and of the Catholic Women’s League (CWL).  Family gatherings, time at the lake and welcoming new additions to the family were all special to her.   Therese’s memory will be forever treasured in the hearts of her husband, Aime; children, Roland G. (Lori) Gervais and their children, Sean Johnston, Jessica (James) Brine; Alain (Della) Fournier and their children, Marisa, Chad (Anda), Todd, Craig (Brooklyn), Blake; Paulette (Ernie) Clarke and their children, Chris (Angela), David (Danielle), Robert (Jennifer); Suzanne Jubb (friend Darryl), her children, Jason, Kyle (Brittany), Derek (Megan), Jennifer (Jordan) Jackson; Michel (Joanne) Fournier and their children, Alyssa, Ashley (Jesse), Jenessa, Evan; 13 great-grandchildren, Liam, Jesse, Levi, Hunter, Hudson, Ryker, Carter, Gracie, Kace, Oliver, Elisabeth, Ellie, Olivia; siblings, Dr. Raymond Piche, Sister Denise Piche SGM, Reverend Father Camille Piche OMI, Monique Piche; sister-in-law, Rachelle Fournier; Aunt, Mimi Wunderlich and Lise Boucher.
