Lizette Jeanette Buchan (nee St. Pierre)

It is with tremendous sadness we announce the passing of a devoted wife, mother, sister, and friend.  Lizette at the age of 63 succumbed to her battle with cancer on January 22, 2022.

Lizette was born to the late Clarice Camirand and Francois St. Pierre in Blind River, Ontario on May 29, 1959.  She was predeceased by her siblings, Marlene, George, and Ronnie as well as her niece Lindsay.   Left to cherish her memory, her husband Dave; children Cassandra (Joel), Adam (Jessie); Jesse (Nikki) and grandchildren Dalia, Romie, James, Bailen and William; Siblings, Fred, Suzie, Edo (Joy), Kathy (Ingo), Peter, Tony; Brother-in-law Donnie (Lynne), Ronnie, Sister-in-law Linda (Blair), and niece Rochelle.  She will also be remembered by her many nieces and nephews. 

Lizette will be remembered for her outgoing and compassionate personality.  She was selfless and often put the needs of others before her own.  She had a gift for making those around her feel at ease and special.  In turn she developed many special and devoted friendships. 

Lizette enjoyed nothing more than spending time with her grandchildren at the cabin in Balsom Harbour.  She often puttered around pulling out toys, organizing activities and asking Dave to start a fire to roast hotdogs and marshmallows.  She always had a pantry full of snacks and sugary cereals to please the grandchildren.  Nothing made Lizette happier than spending time with her family giggling at silly jokes and delighting in the togetherness.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

The family gives special thanks the nurses and doctors at St. Boniface Hospital, Palliative Care Unit who treated Lizette like family and gave exceptional care.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made directly to St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care Unit.
