It is with great sadness that we announce that after a hard-fought battle, Lucie Chauvette, Mental Health Caseworker and family member of the Centre de santé communautaire Hamilton/Niagara family, passed away on Friday May 12, 2023.
A fantastic and dedicated employee of the CSCHN since January 2021, many were fortunate to have benefited from Lucie’s infectious smile and positive presence, whether at our Welland site, at the Bridges CHC, a community partner of ours, or in the community.
Generous with her time, expertise and energy throughout her career in both Quebec and Ontario, nothing fueled Lucie’s passion as much as being of service to others until the very end.
She often shared with us her love of animals (especially greyhounds, whippets and horses) and her international culinary adventures in local restaurants. She had a vigorous repartee, an unparalleled sense of humor, and an ability to see (and especially make people see) the bright side. Her glass was definitely half full. Her attachment and loyalty to the region and its francophonie were uncommon and we are proud and grateful that Lucie felt at home among us.
Despite her all too brief time at the CSCHN, she left an indelible and equally important mark on her clients and colleagues.
Those who knew her will always remember her with affection.
We keep her friends and family in our thoughts.
Sincere thanks to our remarkable Lucie and may you rest peacefully.
Your CSCHN family
