June 20, 1918 – Dec. 15, 2014

ST. ALBANS — Claire was born in St Ignacede, Quebec, Canada. She had been a long time resident of St. Albans, living on the Bronson Road for over 30 years. She was employed at Holiday House for over 25 years, and continued her nursing career until she was 84. She moved to Florida in 1980, and died peacefully in Vero Beach at the VNA hospice.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 51 years, Richard Bechard, and a son Luc Bechard who died in 1943. She will always be remembered and loved by her children, Robert Bechard and Sylvie Funk, and grandchildren Deborah Robinson, Candice and Catelyn Bourgault, Kevin McMillan, and Jennifer Bourdeau. She was so proud of all her grandchildren, six great grand children, nephews, nieces and her long time friends. She truly lived life being devoted to God through prayer and serving others.

We will all miss you.

Funeral Mass will be held on June 20, 2015 at 11 a.m. at Holy Angels Catholic Church. Followed by the burial at Calvary Cemetery.
