It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Marjorie Elizabeth (Betty) Piquette (nee Charlebois) of Cornwall; age 92 years young, on Thursday, January 21, 2021. Beloved wife of the late Philias (Pete) Piquette. Loving mother of Patricia Piquette (Michael Leclerc) of Long Sault, Michael Piquette (Shirley) of Cornwall, and Rosemary Zvonar (John) of Ottawa. Loving Nama of the Piquette boys Jamie (Jennifer), Christopher (Jeff), and Patrick (Meghan), and proud great-grandmother of Felix. Predeceased by her parents Nelson and Mabel Charlebois (nee Loney) and brother Gordon Charlebois. She will also be lovingly remembered by the McCormick family: Rory (Louise), Nori, Rob, Brendan and Kate, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Betty graduated from the St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in 1951 and served as a caring and dedicated nurse at the Hotel Dieu Hospital until her retirement. She was a dedicated wife and mother who was the rock of the family. She was an avid bridge player, hockey fan, and volunteer. She cherished her many friends and always appreciated calls from friends and family as long as they didn’t call during Jeopardy!
In later years, despite challenges with severe pain, her strong will and determination did not stop her from playing bridge or attending St. Columban Church. She will be dearly missed.
Due to restrictions, a private visitation will be held at the Wilson Funeral Home, 822 Pitt St., Cornwall (613-938-3888) followed by a private Mass of Christian Burial in St. Columban Catholic Church, Cornwall. A spring interment will take place in St. Columban Parish Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy Memorial Donations to Patrons of St. Columban Foundation or St. Vincent de Paul Society, Cornwall would be appreciated by the family.

My deepest sympathies to the family on the loss of your Mom. My Mom, Mary, and Betty were the best of friends for many years. They were in the same class in nursing. Mom spoke often of her years living and schooling with her classmates and the Nuns at St. Joseph's School of Nursing. They had some great times and built some special bonds. They also went on to work together at the Hotel Dieu Hospital. As couples, our parents went out to many dances and parties together. Betty and your family will be remembered in my prayers. P.S. I was named after your Mom. Stay safe, love and hugs to all.
Nancy Elizabeth Servage

My deepest sympathy is offered to Betty’s family. I had the pleasure of working with Betty at Hotel Dieu Hospital years ago. She was a wonderful role model to us as student nurses during training and a great colleague. My thoughts and prayers are offered to each of you in Betty’s family during your grief.

My sincere condolences to Rosemary, Patricia, and Michael. Betty was a cherished friend of my mother Audrey Abraham (Miller). I have fond memories of eating your mom's tasty spaghetti dinners and sitting at your kitchen table learning Rammoli. She'll be joining your dad and your dog Pickles in heaven.
