ROSE AND GEORGE WERE MARRIED ON A BEAUTIFUL AND COOL MORNING ON APRIL 7 1926 IN THE VILLAGE CHURCH OF PLANTAGENET ONTARIO
The 17 years old Rose was working as a house maid next door to the Lalonde Bakery. Of course the beautiful Rose caught young handsome George's blue eyes. One year later they married and that was for life.
TOGETHER FOR ETERNITY
They raised their big family the best way they knew how. They gave their love the best way they knew how. They lived the best way they knew how. We should all be so very proud of them.
As Rose had died in winter of 1985, the priest had put her ashes in the “chaumière.” When George died in February of 1986 and couldn’t be buried until the spring, the priest decided to put Rose in the casket with George. Therefore, in the spring, they were buried together. What a very nice way to share and stay together for eternity.
I want to take the opportunity to really say Thank You to George and Rose for just being them.
THE EARLY DAYS

Le couple prend le train à Plantagenet Station pour leur lune de miel à Montréal. C’est un assez long trajet rare dans ces temps là. Ils arretent même chez un photographe pour deux photos. Bonne lune de miel chez Aurore, la grande soeur à George.

This third old bridge replaced an old covered bridge built in 1863, that replaced a first one built in 1820 that was dragged by the angry Spring water, way down the river. In 1926 a new cement bridge was built next to the old wooden bridge that could not hold all the automobiles and trucks anymore. It then turned into a lover’s lane apparently. Regretfully it was torn down in 1976 bringing a lot of the village history with it. The old wooden bridge was sad and so were many older people.
