Biography

Rose de Lima Pitre's life spanned the First World War, and a smallpox outbreak. She was born on 14 Aug 1856 in Québec City, District Judiciaire de Québec, Canada East, at Basilique de Notre Dame, the daughter of Joseph Olivier Pitre and Rose de Lima Durbois. [1][2][3]

On 26 Jun 1889, she married Zéphirin Bernier in Montréal, Québec, Canada at St-Jean-Baptiste de Montréal. [4] He was first married to her sister, Virginie Pitre, who died before 1889, possibly in 1881 [2][3] She was shown on the 1901 and 1921 Census of Canada living in Montréal as the wife of Zephirin Bernier. [5][6][7][8] There were no known children.

She died on 2 Sep 1937 in Montréal, Québec, Canada and was buried on 4 Sep 1937 at Basilique Notre Dame de Montréal in the Paroise de Sainte Philomène. [9][10]

Research Notes

  1. Her first name honors Saint Rose of Lima, who was declared a saint in 1670 by the Catholic Church, the first person born in the Americas to be canonized. [11] The name is occasionally shown on some documents as Délima, likely through misspelling, clipping, or orthographic changes. Perkins-11750 13:52, 10 November 2023 (UTC)
