Pierre was a navigator and had been on a trip to France when he died, perhaps from an injury aboard the ship. She married (second) Pierre dit Pitre Richard, widower of Marie-Josèphe Boudrot and son of Alexandre Richard and Isabelle Petitpas, at Port Toulouse, Acadia, about 1751.
She died 18 April 1778 at Miquelon, France, and was buried there the next day.
