It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Marie Dallaire-Gabay on August 9, 2022 a the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence in Kirkland.
She was an amazing wife, sister, aunt, great-aunt, and friend.
Marie led her life with grace, courage and dignity and was full of life and joy! A lover of art and music, Marie fearlessly pursued her passions. Everyone who knew her was blessed to have spent time with her.
We will miss her dearly as this is a tremendous loss for our family.
The burial service will be held August 15th at 12:30 p.m., at Lakeview Memorial Gardens, 701 Donegani, Pointe-Claire, H9R 5G6. A celebration of Marie’s life will be set for a later date.
A very heartfelt thank you goes out to the wonderful staff at the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence. In lieu of flowers, we would appreciate sending a donation to the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence or NOVA West Island.
Wife of the late Henry Gabay and family. She is the daughter of the late Doreen & Amedee Dallaire. Marie is survived by her sisters, her brother, and many nieces and nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews.

As I watched my sister fade from my sight over the past few weeks, it was hard to let her go. She loved to sit and watch the water & geese at a small park where we had our picnics. Go to your quiet place & watch the sail boats & think of all those who are welcoming her home as we wave good-bye.

One day,67 years ago,a light from the heavens shone down on the earth and a women and a man were blessed with a daughter, an angel was born. She grew up making everyone laugh and smile and always leaving them with a warm feeling in their hearts. She was a Loving Wife and a Loving step Mom,she was a sister to Four Sisters,and a Sister to a Brother. A Aunt and Great Aunt to many nieces and nephews,and had many friend’s. On August the 9th,2022 ,a light from the heavens shone down on her and the battle of her life was over. Her mission was completed,the angels came back down to earth to bring back one of their own. Know that all the people who were touched by her, would be left with a warm feeling in their hearts and now that her life’s work is over,an angel gave her,her wings. Fly angel back to the heavens and come back some other day to give another angel their wings. Your Brother and Sister’s and everyone who knew you Marie, will Miss you. xoxo

Marie was a rare and special person. A beautiful
kind, compassionate and loving soul. She had a great sense humor. She always made me laugh. A best friend who had courage and dignity to the end. She was very “selfless” her best quality.
