Louise Mandville at the age of 84. Predeceased by her beloved husband Leonard; her parents Frank and Anastasia; her siblings Ellen, Edgar, Marguerite, Frank and Gerard. Also, her in laws Cyril, Steve, Ed and Catherine. Leaving to mourn with loving memories, her children: Linda (David Martin), Gerard (Kim), Leonard (Mary), Deborah (Pierre Vercheval), Keith (Sonja Norgaard), Mary Lee Smithers (David), Bonnie Sue McFarland (Rick), John.

We are overcome with sadness at her passing, yet we celebrate the life she lived and reflect on the good times and all she sacrificed for our family. Family was her life and she reaped many years of joy watching who her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were becoming. Mom was a kind and selfless woman; she opened her heart and her home to many. She loved caring for others and always made room at the table for “stragglers”. Special thanks to all those who cared for Mom over the past few years. Visitation to take place at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, from 6-8pm Thursday, 1-4pm and 6-8pm on Friday.

What a beautiful soul Louise was! The picture above is a wonderful portrait of the grace, humility and joy she lived each moment of life with. A wonderful memory for me was simply having a cup of tea with Louise as she sipped hot water. She was totally present and engaged in talking with me. I always marvelled how she treated us teens as well as, maybe better than, adults who visited. Our heartfelt condolences to all the kids, grandkids and great grandkids. Louise was an honour to know.

My sincere condolences to the Mandville family. I’m a friend of John’s and I know how much your mom meant to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Thinking of you Johnny. God bless.

So sorry to hear about Louise’s passing, a wonderful woman and great Mother to all of you. I was one of the stragglers that could be found at her table, so many wonderful memories of her. I think Labrador did that to many of us, we had many women who looked after us and were like second Mothers to us. Thinking of you all at this difficult time, but, she will be looking down today knowing what a great family she has left behind.

Very sincerely,

Dear Gerard, Linda, Leonard , and family ,

I am sorry to learn of the passing of your mother. Many say children’s character and successes are measured by the support given to them by their parents. Obviously your parents did a great job raising a big family, welcoming their friends, and that you made them proud. I am sure that you are left with treasured memories. Jack Drover

We are so sorry to hear of Louises’s passing. If ever there was a stong, determined woman, it was Louise Mandville. Indeed she did welcome “stragglers” into her home with open arms and a warm heart! Her legacy of love will live on through all of you. Cherish the memories. We are sure they will be lined up for her toutons in heaven!

Leonard – Sorry about the death of your mom.

Our Deepest Condolences on the loss of a very beautiful woman.

When Kim and Gerard married we did not just get a terrific brother-in-law, he had a very special mother. We have enjoyed and shared many special occasions with Louise, she will be remembered for her loving, kind and nurturing personality.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mandville family during this difficult time.

We were so sorry to hear of Louise’s passing. She was such a wonderful, welcoming person, and memories of the last time we saw her, dancing at Meghan’s wedding are still so vivid. She loved music and dancing, and people most of all.

We wish you peace and happy memories to get you through this difficult time.

So so sorry to hear about your Mom, the most precious woman I’ve ever known. Wish we could be there. Hugs to you all. Dianne and Bob.

I don’t even know if I have the words to describe how sad I was to hear the news. My deepest condolences to you all. Louise holds a special place in my heart and has been like a mother to us all for many years. Even staying with her two trips home and how she went over and beyond to do absolutely everything for me to make me happy while i was there like making fish and brews, home made bread and even leaving to walk to zellers to get a george foreman grill because I said I wanted pancakes and she went to buy that to make them for me. She’s one special lady who will be missed by many. I hope your special memories help you through this difficult time. Love Elsie

Dear Mandville Family. Larry and I are heartbroken at the loss of dear Louise. As you all know, we were two of her “stragglers” and Louise and Len took us in and treated us like their own. As our children came along, it was Mother Louise who I turned to time and time again for advice and support..she was always there for us. And she never pulled any punches when she felt I was doing something wrong! When we moved to Mount Pearl and reconnected with her, once again she was there for us. Sometimes in life, if one is really, really lucky, we are blessed to have the rare love and friendship of someone who is truly special..in our lives (me, Larry, and our children), that person was Louise. May God Bless her and welcome her…He’s certainly gained a one-of-a-kind angel to help Him watch over us all. Sending our love and sincere condolences to you all. Love, Brenda & Larry Reid and Family.
