Marcel's Story

ST. AGATHA - Marcel Chartier, died April 24, 2015 at a Frenchville Health Facility two

days after celebrating his 88th birthday. He was born on April 22, 1927 in

Edmundston New Brunswick and raised in Madawaska. He was the son of John

and Bertha (Cyr) Chartier. He had two brothers, Real and Louis Chartier.

His parents and his brothers all predeceased him. Marcel served in the Army

and after his return from the service he became a mail man in Madawaska for

29 years. Shortly after his retirement he moved to St. Agatha Housing where

he was a resident for over 30 years. He occupied his time with small jobs.

For twelve years he was a ceramics teacher, he was a cook for Frazer Guest

House for fourteen years, then became the cook for the Senior Citizen Meals

of St. Agatha, Frenchville, and Sinclair. Marcel was a faithful communicant

of Our Lady of the Valley Parish and volunteered in many Parish committees

and projects. He will be especially remembered for his beautiful voice as a

cantor in church services. He had an infectious smile, a kind heart, and a

gentle spirit. His thoughtfulness toward others was expressed with many

greeting cards, gifts, and food treats.

Marcel is survived by his aunt, Orietta Rogan, two sisters in law, Jeanne

and Irma Chartier, his nieces Felice, Charlene, Gisele and Lise, and by his

nephews Louie, Chuck. His nephew James predeceased Marcel. He is also
