    I am very sorry to hear of your sudden loss. I know how important Mom and Grandma were to you. I am very glad she got the chance to go on her trip, what an amazing experience, and that she had the opportunity to live closer to her friends. She knew how very much she was loved and that is the most important thing of all.

  13. Colette and I worked together for many years. She brought a quiet dignity to the office. She always said hello to me as I entered the door, but more tenderly, she always sought me out when her shift was over to say good-bye. Sometimes she would just touch me gently on the back so as not to disturb me. She was always very polished and sophisticated. I will never get over missing her. I wish we could have said good-bye one last time.

  14. Colette and I became good friends when we met at the Hospice support group. She was always very supportive and was very appreciative of anything you did for her. A great lady and I will miss her dearly. My Heartfelt sympathy to all her family. Diane

  15. A truly beautiful soul, a deeply interested intellect, and an open and unfettered love for family and friends epitomized our Colette. She was indeed the sister I never had and, most importantly, a kindred spirit. Love and loss – two emotions that cannot be described.
    Mike, Heather, and Sacha – my heart shares in your mourning. So many amazing memories I shall hold so close to my heart of your Mother!

  16. Chandra, Kristine and the Balakrishnan Family

    I have such fond memories of Mrs. Page growing up. She was like another mother to me and many of us… always warm and kind… I would often come over to Sacha’s after school and she wouldn’t hesitate to make us all a delicious snack (ie. Beef tar tar). Sacha is so blessed to have had such a wonderful mother.

    To her family, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  17. Colette was my friend,a friend you chose for family, and a co-worker. She was a caregiver with an amazing heart. When our family moved to Hammond some years ago, Colette, Ron and Oma Sophie had a grocery store close by. When I needed to return to work I needed care for my 6 month son Sean. I asked this warm hearted lady if she knew anybody and her immediate response was “you can’t leave this beautiful boy with just anyone I am sure Oma Ron and I can help you” and so started our friendship. Along came Karen and I remember how they loved and rocked her, then Ian who took his first steps in their backyard.Colette had many talents and was a great hostess, a wonderful cook and enjoyed throwing a good party. She taught me about canning and oh those brandied cherries! I could not learn to knit as she did.. Years pass and our children became adults. She was always encouraging, loving and forgiving. She was so proud of her family Mike, Heather and Sacha and their spouses. She celebrated their differences and was so proud of their accomplishments Her grandchildren were a source of joy! She has given them a great inheritance..the love of family She had great strength and enduring love in the face of adversity. When Ron had his stroke and life changed Colette came to work with us at Pitt Meadows Physiotherapy. Lucky were those who met her and lucky were we to work with her. She was quick,caring and efficient. Adversity hit as Sophie aged and Ron her true love, became more disabled. She lost both of them. Colette faced her own personal adversity with her health but with her strength of character and the support of family she was able to recover. All along she remained caring ,patient, loving and forgiving. I am glad that she enjoyed her friendships and had some trips in the last few years..that was always on her bucket list.
    I and my family have been blessed to have had Colette in our lives and I can only hope that I have learned from her. I will so miss her warm hugs,so special.
    My heart goes out to her family,her spirit will live in your hearts.
    With Love Virginia

  18. Des, Tracy, Caius and Jadin Sjoquist

    Christmas time always reminds me of Mom Page hugs, brandied cherries, and fondues. Your mom will always be deeply remembered in my heart as a wonderful and kind lady. All of us will be thinking of all of you this Christmas season and remembering your mom in the fondest ways.
    Des and family

  19. We live down the street from her Hammond home and
    remember shopping at their store in 1975 and Ron
    delivering the groceries to our house. No one did that
    Colette, I recall, had a job with a greeting card company.
    Her mother-in-law spoke German, as did we, so we met.
    When Ron became ill, etc. I would often take her shopping
    in my car and helped her when she moved to Pitt Meadows.

    We became friends but lost contact since then and her
    passing was a big shock to us.
    All the best to her family.

  20. I was very sad to hear about Collette’s passing. She was such a sweet, kind person and a pleasure to work with.
    My sincere condolences to her family.

  21. Jeanne and Glen Morris

    Please accept my deepest Symphaties to all your family. I was Collette’s friend in Pitt Meadows, we were neighbour and became best of friends. We had a lot of good times together, we would go for lunch or coffee and speak french together and enjoy each others company. We had become more than friends we were like family. I will be missing her a lot.

    Jeanne and Glen Morris

  22. Dear Janet, Sasha and family,

    Thank you so much for your call. Please accept my sincere condolences. Colette was a wonderful neighbour and friend. I’ll miss my afternoon teas with her as we used to do.

    I’m sorry I can’t be at the memorial service as I’ve just received word of my step father’s passing. But know that I will be with you in spirit.


  23. I had the chance to meet and appreciate Colette during her stay in France last automn I am very sad for her sudden departure and send all my best to her family

  24. Nicole and Jennifer and Staff from Crystal Vision and Hearing Centre

    We wanted to send our condolences to the Page family.
    Colette was an amazing Hearing client of ours. We always looked forward to seeing her big smile as she walked through the door. Always so happy and loving! She will be very missed! We have her post card hanging in our office from her Paris Trip. Here’s what she wrote:
    Dear Jennifer and Nicole,
    what a beautiful trip, Had great weather.
    Wonderful time with my sister.
    See you soon.

    ***Heaven has become even better as it has gained the most beautiful Angel***

    Rest in Peace Dear Colette xoxoxo

  25. Karen Pugsley (Fenzl)

    I will always remember Colette with a smile. When she worked at the physio clinic I would stop by just for a hug. She always spoke french with me and my brothers and was a great help with homework. More recently I used to take my kids to visit her at the women’s hospice auxiliary. She lived fully and loved freely. You will be remembered always and now like always we will look up to you.

  26. Bill, Joyce & Billy O'Laughlin

    We were so sorry to learn that Collette had passed away. We go back a long time in Port Hammond when Collette and Ron ran the store and were also our neighbors on 114th Avenue. We will always remember your Mom and Dad. Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

  27. Renuka Preocanin

    I would like to offer my condolences to the Page family. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

    Colette was a wonderful and kind hearted lady who always had time for you. She was gentle, understanding and sweet. I loved working with her and I enjoyed our talks together. She will be missed by all who knew her.
