In Loving Memory Of
Mercedes Deveau
1929 ~ 2024

It is with deep regret, that we announce the death of Mercedes Deveau of Dieppe, NB, on January 21, 2024, at the age of 94.

She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. She was predeceased by her brothers: Henri (Annie), Hubert (Mina), Leon, and Cornelius; her sisters: Evelyn, Amanda (Lovat) Fraser, Rita (Marcelin)Aucoin, Martha (Al) Balawyder, and Delire.

Mercedes is survived by many loving nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, as well as many cousins.

Mercedes devoted her life to the service of others, working as a nurse, caring for the elderly, as well as newborn babies in Dalhousie, NB.  All she did in life, she did with the help of God, and offered it all back to her Lord.

A woman of deep faith, she once wrote in her book, “Dear Lord, I offer you my life, so that when the end comes you will take me with you because I want to honor you for all Eternity.”

At Mercedes request, there will be no visitation. A funeral mass will take place at Sainte-Thérèse RC Church (457 Acadie Ave, Dieppe) on Friday, May 17th, 2024, at 1:30pm.

  1. Mercedes avait une grande foi en Dieu et dans ses gestes et paroles, ça se voyait très bien. Elle avait un grand amour pour sa famille et tout ceux et celles qu’elle côtoyait.

  2. It was a pleasure to have callled Mercedes a friend.She was humble and working with heryears ago at St. Josephs Dalhousie was a plus .To all her extened family my sympathy.

  3. There are so many things to say about Tante Mercedes who lived a long, meaningful and productive life. We think of the countless number of patients who benefitted from her tender loving care and kindness. All her nieces and nephews were treated as her own children and she cherished every visit with all of us. The wonderful memories we shared with her will always bring peace to our hearts where she will remain forever. She left this earth with her unwavering belief and faith in God. Until we meet again, Tante Mercedes.
    With all our love,
    Goretti & Duncan

  4. Caring thoughts and prayers to Mercedes’ family–to all her nieces and nephews. Mercedes was a treasured friend of my aunt, Sister Bertha Mae Samson. She visited me on different occasions with Sister at my home in North Grant. I also had the opportunity to visit with her at her apartment in Dieppe when I would be in Moncton visiting Sister. These were such special visits. Her obituary is a lovely tribute to a most beautiful lady. Her love will always be with you. Mercedes, I am certain Sister greeted you with a smile and a red rose and said “Welcome Home.”

  5. Our condolences to the family. We knew Mercedes very well as well as her sister, Marthy, and her husband, Al. She was wonderful company to my mother. They cooked together. Fish was Mercedes’ favourite dish. She had a wonderful sense of humour, which we all enjoyed. She was a very good person. We only visited with her once in Dieppe due to illness. We could not visit her in person, but we kept in touch by mail.

    We will have a Holy Mass this coming week at St. Ninians Cathedral with her intentions/blessing said during the mass.
