December 5, 1946 ~ June 4, 2021
Claude also known as “Papa” to his children (Pam & Robert), grandchildren (Denice, Deanna, Dezzeray, Jamee, Chrysstyna, Aimey, Sheldon, Jodi, Cody, Robbert, Kirkland, Stephanie) and many great grandchildren suddenly left us on June 4th to meet his savior. Way too soon and way too suddenly for all his friends and loved ones that will miss him daily, but his spirit will live on through the cherished memories. We will cherish Claude’s appreciation and love for his family and friends; his sensitivity to feelings – his or yours; his story-telling of his life experiences over several morning cups of coffee; his meticulous advise on any and every topic at the dinner table; his joy of singing; his pride that glowed when talking about his French heritage; his generosity of his bountiful garden vegetables; his trips to the States with his girlfriend; his chef specialities – famous pancakes, homemade French fries, carrot ground coffee; his knowledge of the Bible; his willingness to help out with any situation that would arise and his carpentry skills that are displayed as far north as Cranberry Portage and definitely in the Lac du Bonnet area. Claude was definitely “A Jack of All Trades”. A true friend and loved one is never truly gone; Claude “also known as Frenchie to many of his friends” will remain in our hearts forever.
Claude is originally from Riveria blue, Temiscouata in Quebec. Claude had 11 brothers and sisters: Roland, Emile, Jannette, Yolande, Armand, Rita, Simone, Aline, Ronald, Lilianne, Jacques and loving parents Camile and Ida. Claude had several dreams and for many of them he was living them out daily in Maple Creek as we all know; but he never had the chance to go for another road trip to visit all his relatives or to complete his third book about his father. A message from his family in Quebec: Nous avons le regret de vous announcer le décès de Claude Plourde, qui nous a quitté subitemen. Il laisse dans le deuil ses soeurs Jeanine, Rita, Simone, Aline, Mona, Son frere Jacques et ainsi neveux et nièces, qu’atres parents et amis.
Notre Père, qui es aux cieux, que ton nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel. Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour. Pardonne-nous nos offenses,
comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés. Et ne nous laisse pas entrer en tentation
mais délivre-nous du Mal.
