Sister claire Marie alice Pageau

1926 — January 1, 2021

The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada is saddened to announce that Sister Claire Marie Pageau died peacefully at the residence of the Sisters of St. Joseph, 485 Windermere Road, London Ontario, on January 15, 2021. Claire Marie was born on March 29, 1926 in Windsor, Ontario and entered the Sisters of St. Joseph on July 2, 1949. She will be fondly remembered by all her CSJ Sisters as well as brothers John and Leo Pageau, sister Lorraine Chauvin, brother-in-law Graham Welch and numerous nieces and nephews. Sister Claire Marie is predeceased by her parents Stella G. (Genest) and Louis J. Pageau, brother Ted Pageau, sisters Rosalie Jolicoeur, Agnes Zangari and Madeleine Pageau as well as in- laws Catherine Pageau, Frank Chauvin, Denise Pageau, Raymond Jolicoeur, John Zangari and Delfina Zangari. From 1952 to 1972 Sister Claire Marie taught music in convents in London, Tillsonburg, St. Thomas, Seaforth and Woodstock. She was well respected by her many students. During these years she worked diligently at her studies, mostly by correspondence and graduated with a B.A. in Theology from the University of Windsor. After completing her studies, she transitioned to parish work serving as a pastoral minister and catechist at Holy Rosary Parish, Windsor. She moved to British Columbia where she accepted the position of coordinator of Catholic Adult Education ministering in Oliver, Trail and Maple Ridge BC. In 1982, Claire Marie returned to Ontario and volunteered her time as a pastoral visitor, a community driver, and an active participant in Cursillo, the charismatic prayer movement and the Marriage Encounter program. Claire Marie had a deep love for nature and respect for all God's creatures. An avid birdwatcher, she took delight in identifying various species during her walks. We thank God for Sister Claire Marie's presence among us and for the tender care she received from our care centre staff.
