Grace was born in 1890. Her parents were Phillip ELLIOT and Sara SAUVE.
Grace Elliott came from a prosperous Montreal family. Her father, Phillip Armstrong Elliott, an Anglican of loyalist stock, had married Sarah-Rebecca Sauvé, a French Canadian Roman Catholic, and, as was required by the Catholic church for children of interfaith marriages, Grace was raised as a Catholic.
Phillip Elliott’s wealth came from real estate investments in Montreal. In 1903 he removed Grace from her convent school there and placed her in the Dunham Ladies’ College, an Anglican women’s finishing school in the Eastern Townships. Although she spoke and wrote French, she preferred English, which would be the language of the Trudeau home.
Grace married to Charles-Emile TRUDEAU on 11 May 1915 in St. Louis de France, Montreal,. Their children were:
1. Suzette in 1918
2. Pierre in 1919.
3. Charles, whom the family would call Tip, in 1922.
