It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Jocelyne Angélina Robert of Ottawa, at the age of 76, on February 26th, 2017, after a brave battle with cancer. Formerly of Montreal QC and Moncton NB, Jocelyne was a nurse for many years and a pioneer in the field of palliative care. She worked with the VON, Canadian Red Cross, Royal Victoria Hospital (Montréal), Ottawa Civic Hospital, May Court Hospice, and Community Care Access Centre (Cornwall). Jocelyne was a nurturing, outgoing, creative and fun loving lady. An opera lover who greatly enjoyed travelling, she explored many new places with her husband Mike. She will be greatly missed by her family including husband Michael F. James, sons Benoît Robert (Christine Leroux), Jérôme Tanguay and Philippe Tanguay (Stephanie Powers), grandchildren Cloé, Louis and Geneviève, and brother François. Predeceased by her parents, Lilliane DeRepentigny & Gaetan Robert and her brothers Bernard and André. A heartfelt thank you to the staff of the May Court Hospice and especially Dr. Coulombe for making Jocelyne’s last days peaceful, loving and comfortable.
