Mass of Christian Burial
Obituary of Marlene Ann Vaillancourt
With great sadness the family of Marlene A. Vaillancourt (nee Houley), announce her passing which occurred Friday, May 3, 2019, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. She was the beloved wife of Gaetan Vaillancourt, cherished mother of Katrina and Leah, and doting grandmother to Audrina and Hunter.
Marlene met the love of her life Gaetan, in Brantford, Ontario, at a Valentine's Day dance. They were married later that year and together raised two beautiful daughters, who were Marlene's pride and joy. The recent addition of her grandchildren was a great source of happiness and delight.
