Armelle passed away peacefully on July 24, 2017 at the Carman Memorial Hospital.  Armelle was born on April 20, 1929 in Montreal, Quebec and lived most of her life in Starbuck, Manitoba.  Armelle took over the post office in Starbuck from her parents and served as postmaster for many years before retiring to enjoy her artistic and gardening passions.

Armelle was predeceased by her parents; her sister, Madeleine; brother-in-law, Russell; and her nephew Paul. 

She is survived by many friends, her niece, Michelle (partner Dave) and Michelle’s 2 daughters: Christin (husband Sebastian) and their 2 children, Zachary and Zara; and Pam (partner Jamie) and her son, Maddoc; daughter, Madalyn; and step-daughter, Jayden.

There will be no funeral service.  A memorial will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, a donation in Armelle’s name may be made to Carmen Memorial Hospital – Palliative Care Unit, CNIB or a charity of choice.

Our deepest sympathies to all of Armelles family. We used to love chatting with her and while I also enjoyed her knowledge of flowers and paintings, Frank never minded getting the mail as he and Armelle always found something to chat about or argue about. We will miss her even though we'd moved to Wpg and didn't see her as much lately.Love from Frank and Pat Thomaschewski.
