It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Claudette May Tuskovich (Poirier, Powers) at age 87 on Feb 19, 2019. She passed away peacefully in the arms of her daughters in a room filled with the love of her family. She taught us all to dance to the music, love with passion, laugh every day and eat butter tarts.

A very special thank you to Dr Chiang, Zach and the nurses at Anson General Hospital for their compassionate care. Also, thanks to all of her Red Cross Workers who helped her to stay in her own home, but most especially to Jenna for her devotion and friendship.
A family gathering to honour her will be held this summer at the cottage at Nellie Lake where she and John enjoyed many summers together. There will be music, laughter, hugs, tears and butter tarts.
