Obituary for Margaret Bourgeault

Margaret Bourgeault
Margaret Mary Bourgeault
Age 94, died peacefully on September 19 in her home under the loving care of her family and dedicated Fairview Hospice staff.
Raised by nuns in St. Elizabeth’s orphanage in New Orleans, LA, Margaret longed for a kind French Catholic man to love - her prayers were answered when at the age of 20 she met her handsome Navy man, Art. They married a few months later.
Family was important to both Art and Margaret, and they raised eight children together after losing their first child at birth. Despite many trials and work transfers they remained together and grew in love for 74 years.
Survived by husband Arthur, and children Gerard (Joan), Laura (Joe), Craig (Leslie), Alan, and Joseph (Shirley) Bourgeault; Jeanne Papin, Carol (John) Fruth, Annemarie (Jeff) Fruth, as well as thirteen grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
