Passed away peacefully on January 11th, 2007 in Surrey, B.C., at the age of 75. Dearly beloved partner of Roy Cooles, loving mother of Albert and his wife Susan as well as Perry and his wife Vatrena; grandmother of Atticus, Coen, Aidan, Ryan and Karissa.
Born in a home with no running water or electricity in Shawinigan, Quebec, Paquerette left her parents and nine siblings at 17 years of age to study nursing in Ottawa, Ontario in English, a language she had to learn. She went on to pursue her vocation with caring professionalism in Ontario, California, Quebec and British Columbia.
She raised her two sons as a single working mother and broadened their horizons with countless outings, excursions and travels. She had an adventurous spirit.
Her passion was ballroom dancing and it was on the dance floor that she met and fell in love with Roy Cooles. The two shared a lovely home in South Surrey, B.C.
