TESSIER, Rolande (née Desjardins) – It is with heaviness in our hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Mrs. Rolande (Rolly) Huguette Tessier; December 3rd, 2020. Beloved wife and best friend of Adelard Tessier since 1959 and loving mother to her children; Colleen Tessier, Andre Tessier (Louise), and Louise Filion (Rick). The memory of her as “Mere” will be held dear by her 8 grandchildren (Sharina, Alayna, Tyler, Dylan, Emilie, Eric, Alexandra, and Evan) and 5 great-grandchildren (Peyton, Ryland, Taelynn, Rory, and Jaxx). Cherished sister and close friend to her siblings; Gerald (Lucille), Rejean (Connie), and Yvon Desjardins (Donna), and Johanne Cameron (Stephen). Predeceased by her brothers Roger and Claude, and her parents Roland and Juliette (née Marcil) Desjardins.

Rolande worked at the Bank of Montreal for over 35 years. In her retirement, she enjoyed traveling south for the winters. She and Adelard began by exploring the Caribbean with her brother Yvon (Donna) before making annual trips to Florida, where they made countless memories and lasting friendships. In more recent years (2004-2020), Rolande was happiest when spending time at Lancaster RV Park where she will be deeply missed by her fellow campers. Many will hold the memories of her on the boat, fishing, and eating fresh perch close to their hearts as they heal. Rolande was known for her unique gift of bringing people together; and making everyone feel like family. Whether it was at the trailer or her home, Rolande would welcome you with food, drinks, games, laughter, and love. She touched the lives of all who knew her, and although we can no longer see her with our eyes or touch her with our hands, we will always feel her in our hearts.

We welcome the public to join us in paying their respects on Thursday December 10, 2020 from 9:00AM – 11:00AM at Wilson Funeral Home, 822 Pitt Street, Cornwall. There will be controlled entrance and a face mask will be required. A private funeral ceremony and celebration of life will be held later on. Donations in memory can be made to Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation and online condolences may be made at:

Adelard, cousins and family,

I was very saddened with the news of Rolande's passing. As Nicole said, we always enjoyed her visits to Syracuse. I remember tobagganing with her, laughing all the way down the hill. Also, I remember riding with Adelard and Rolande on one of the family caravans to the farm in Potsdam. She was a special person who made every one else feel special. My sincere condolences to all of you. Colette Smolinski

Our deepest sympathies to Aldelard, Gerald, Lucille and to the family. We had the pleasure of spending time with Rolande at Lancaster park. I would every now and again visit them with a little shooter when they would be at my good neighbors Gerald and Lucille. She will be deeply missed. Please take good care Aldelard. xo
Your camping friends,
Nicole Quenneville and Patrick Henri.
