All good things must come to an end and so after 84 years
filled with love, family, and friends, “Mousie” Desorcy peacefully passed away on April 15, 2004 with his loving family by his side.
He was born on Jan. 12, 1920 in Lorette, Man. to Eva and Eugene Desorcy. Mousie grew up on the family farm in Rainy River, Ont.
He was united in marriage July 7, 1945 to Helen Komarnicki and together they raised six children.
Mousie loved fishing and spent many hours on Ontario lakes. Dad also loved
animals and tamed many squirrels to eat from his hand. He was a milkman for
31 years and loved to talk with everyone he met.
Dad loved to joke around, and everyone will always remember his smile, sense of humour, and loving spirit.
After moving to Alberta, Dad cherished his time spent with his grandchildren. His family was his pride and joy, and we were very blessed to
have had him in our lives.
Moving into the Lodge two years ago, he quickly surrounded himself with warm friends to visit and play cards with. He could not stop talking about the good food and clean environment of his new home.
Mousie was predeceased by his wife, Helen, of 55 years.
Left to cherish many wonderful memories are his children and grandchildren, David, Linda (Dave) and daughters, Amanda and Sarah, Pat (Darlene) and daughter Jennifer, Gerry (Brenda) and daughter, Alana, Ken (Sue) and children, Kyle, Rachelle, Evan, and Nick, and Janell (Clancy) and children, Jade, Taryn, and Bryce.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, April 20, 2004 at 10 a.m. at the Sacred Heart Church.

Association, P.O. Box 708, Stn. ‘M’, Calgary, Alta., T2P 2J3.
