Sisters and Brothers, It is with shock and sadness that we infom you of the passing of Josie Lemaire, wife of Brother Duane Lemaire & sister-in-law of Brother Kevin Lemaire. On behalf of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference we exend our senciere condolences to the Lemaire family.  


LEMAIRE, Josie - Suddenly and tragically, Josie, cherished wife, mother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and cousin, passed away on Friday, March 15, 2019 at the age of 55.

She leaves to mourn her husband of nearly 30 years, Duane Lemaire; her beloved sons Daniel and Nicholas; brothers Ignazio (Valerie) and Paul (Debra); brother-in-law Kevin Lemaire (Janet) and sister-in-law Melodie Sanderson (Jeff); father-in-law Dave Lemaire (the late Jackie); and the many members of her extended family, who meant everything to her. Predeceased by her parents Margherita and Vito Roppolo. Josie also leaves behind dear friends, and close colleagues from her 33 years at RBC.

Josie was the most warm, open-hearted person you could ever meet. She was unfailingly kind, thoughtful and generous, always putting others before herself. Her love will continue to be felt by all of us, and words cannot express how much we will miss her.

In keeping with Josie’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
