Laurence Bélanger Larivière (nee Gervais) Obituary


In loving memory of

Laurence Bélanger (Larivière) née Gervais

It is with heavy hearts and sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Laurence Bélanger (Larivière)née Gervais into the arms of Jesus on February 10th, 2024 at the South Centennial Manor in Iroquois Falls, Ontario, just 16 days shy of her 100th birthday. She leaves behind her greatest legacy, her family, including her children: Ronald Bélanger (Julie), Florent Bélanger (late Noëlla), late Ernest Bélanger (Mariette), Réjeanne Sauvé (late Louis), Robert Pompon Bélanger (Suzanne), Liliane Francis (late Philippe), Jeanette Labrèche (Gaetan), late Gérald Bélanger (Fernande), Marie Trahan (Gilles) and Léo Bélanger (Mona-Lynn); and her grandkids which were her pride and joy: André, Gilles, Jean, late Yvan, Lynne, Lyanne, Michelle, Chantale, Claude, Luc, Daniel, Anne, Lisa, Tamy, Alain, Elaine, Nicole, Serge, Sophie, France, Patrick, late Mathieu, Lisane, Marc, Janie, Véronique, Caroline, Kristy- Anne and Kelly-Ann. She also leaves to mourn numerous great and great-great grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Sylvio Bélanger, by her second husband Théo Larivière, her parents Dosithé and Rébecca Gervais, and her siblings Fernand Gervais, Laurette L’Heureux, Florent Gervais, Georgette Morissette, Aurèle Gervais, Rhéa Bertrand and Donat Gervais.

Laurence was raised in Tunis, Ontario and was a life long resident of Iroquois Falls. She met the love of her life Sylvio just prior to World War II. Together they built a loving family of 10 children in Montrock which eventually grew to be larger than 170 relatives over 5 generations during her lifetime. Laurence was a wonderful mom. Her greatest quality was her joie de vivre and her loving kindness towards everyone she met. She was a woman of great faith deeply impacting those who had the privilege to know her. She enjoyed travelling, camping and family gatherings. Her loss leaves a great void in all of our hearts. The family wishes to thank the staff at South Centennial Manor for their compassionate care provided during the last years of her life. Donations can be made to the manor in memory of Laurence.

Family will receive visitation on Saturday, February 17th from 9:45am to 10:45am at Irvine & Irvine Funeral Home, 641 deTroyes Ave and a celebration of life service will follow at 11:00am at Iroquois Falls Pentecostal Church (154 Teefy St), Iroquois Falls.
