Québec Researchers: Jules Pitre had eleven siblings and twelve children, yet nobody knows where he died in 1947?

+7 votes
Jules Pitre was born October 19, 1869 in Ste. Philomene, Chateauguay, Québec.  He married Marie Georgiana Lamarre in the same town in 1891, and the couple had twelve children, with at least some of them born in that town.  His eleven siblings were born in Chateauguay, Québec.  With such a large family, how can it be that nobody knows where or when poor Jules died, or anything about his life?  If you can provide any information or sources for this family man, please contribute to his profile.  And if you feel a connection to Jules, feel free to adopt his profile.

I found his obituary picture on Drouin (behind paywall). I'll put it on his profile. It states his date of death but not location unfortunately.

I found another proper obituary on Drouin, states he was in St-Philomene de Chateauguay. I can't post it due to copyright but I'll add the info to the profile.
If the obituary doesn't list an author (i.e. Pseudonymous/Anonymous Author(s)) and it was published in Canada in 1947, then for the purposes of the applicable copyright question, it's in the Public Domain; you can post it.
The drouin site has a copyright at the bottom of the page though, is it still okay?
