In Loving Memory Of
Rose-Marie Martel
1946 ~ 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Rose-Marie Martel, 77, on Wednesday, February 14th, 2024, at the Moncton Hospital.

Born in Dieppe, she was the daughter of the late Léonide and the late Irène Goguen (Bastarache).

Rose-Marie will be sadly missed by her children: Nicole (Gary) Roy of Saint-Joseph-de-Kent, Christine (Gilles) Caissie of Sainte-Anne-de-Kent, and Marc (Lisette) LeBlanc of Moncton; her grandchildren: Savannah, Ashley, Jérémie, Janie, and Catherine; her sister, Lucille (late Paul) Breau of Dieppe; her brothers: Jacques (late Ella) Goguen of Moncton, Emery (Clara) Goguen of Squamish, BC, and Francis (late Mary) Goguen of Bathurst; her stepchildren: Theresa Finney, Sharron Martel, and Trevor Martel; her sister-in-law, Doris Goguen of Saint-Édouard-de-Kent; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Glen; her infant baby, Charline; her brothers: Philip and Ronald; and her niece, Lyanne Breau.

Rose-Marie was very much loved by her students during her long career as a teacher in Salisbury and in Bouctouche. She loved reading and had a passion for traveling to different countries. She would often donate to charities in order to help people in need.

The family would like to thank Dr. Searle and the nurses at the palliative care unit for their wonderful care.

In respect to Rose-Marie’s wishes, there will be no visitations and no funeral service. A graveside ceremony will be held in the spring.

Donations in memory of Rose-Marie can be made to the Harvest House, Foodbank, or to the Friends of the Moncton Hospital.

  8. So very sorry for your loss. Mme Martel was one of my absolute favourites. I adored her fully. She was Mme LeBlanc when we started the school year (1986) and told us at one point we were getting a new teacher named Mme Martel. We were all devastated. She got us good! I truly loved her. May you find peace and comfort in all of your memories.

  9. Mes plus sincères sympathies à Christine, Gilles, Marc, Lisette et famille. Je pense à vous et je vous souhaite bon courage.

  10. LUCILLE ET FAMILLES…. Sinceres condoleances. Puissiez-vous trouver confort dans les bons moments avec Rose-Marie. Mes sympathies a chacun et chacune de vous.

  11. My deepest sympathies to the family. I will truly miss on our monthly lunches with the cousins. Going to miss her jokes. REST IN PEACE. Rose Marie

  12. My sincere condolences to all of Mme Martel’s family. I was one of her students in 1986-87 and like my friends who have commented, I loved her very much. She was a wonderful teacher and a guide through some tough times. Several of us had to move away that year as a result of changes in our father’s jobs and I know that she helped us prepare for those changes. She was kind and tough and very funny — and yes, as Val said in her message, she got us good when she told us our teacher after the break would be called “Mme Martel.”

    Merci Madame. Vos élèves se souviendront toujours de vous avec amour et respect.

  13. Mes sympathies les plus sincères à la famille dans ces moments très difficiles. Nous allons certainement manquer Rose Marie notre bonne amie, très gentille et bonne personne.💜🙏

  14. We are so very sorry to hear about the death of your Mum. We met her on a bus tour and have kept in touch over the years. One year she phone me on my birthday, She remembered the date, I was so very touched. She loved her family and a person could tell by the way she spoke of them. Can’t forget how much she loved lobsters. She will surely be missed. Again please accept our condolences

  15. Je l’ai rencontrer quelques fois grâce à ma cousine Celine Thériault qui était une bonne amie…mes sympathies a toute la famille…
