IRVING, Virginia Madeline

1931 - 2019


À son domicile, le 25 septembre 2019, entourée de l’amour de sa famille, à l’âge de 88 ans, est décédée paisiblement Virginia Madeline Irving, fille de feu Genevieve (Kinsey) et Colin Henderson et épouse de feu Leslie Allan Irving. Enfant unique, elle a toujours désiré une grande famille et était la mère aimante de Gail (David Bennett), Mary-Lou, Joanne, Linda (Iain MacAulay), Wendy (Mario Gaudette), Dawn (Luc Rodrigue) et Lisa (René Charron). Elle était la “Nana” adorée de Megan Irving, Genevieve Gaudette, Kim Gaudette, Jonathan MacAulay, Colin-Irving Bennett, Fiona Irving-Bennett et Kevin MacAulay. Elle laisse également dans le deuil ses arrière-petits-enfants Livia and Zachary Péloquin, ses nombreux neveux, nièces et amis ainsi que sa communauté d’infirmières. Elle a soigné des milliers de patients durant sa longue carrière et sa vie d’infirmière superviseure au Sherbrooke Hospital.

L’hommage à la vie et les visites ont été confiés à l’église St-Paul’s Presbyterian Church, située au 42 rue Albert à Scotstown. Les heures de visite sont vendredi le 4 octobre 2019 de 14h à 16h et de 19h à 21h. L’hommage à la vie aura lieu à l’église St-Paul le samedi 5 octobre à 14h et de là au cimetière Riverview Cemetery.

Toute marque de sympathie à la famille peut se traduire par un don au Riverview Cemetery Inc. a/s Linda Irving, 144 rue Coleman, Scotstown, Québec J0B 3B0. La famille désire remercier les infirmières et le personnel du CLSC Cookshire, Julia Berasategui Zamora, Dre Michèle Brochu, ainsi que les nombreux amis et parents qui lui ont procuré la joie, l’accompagnement et le bien-être qu’elle portait en elle chaque jour.

Irving Family

My deepest sympathy to the Irving Family.

I had the pleasure to work under the supervision of Mrs. Irving on 3rd floor . She was so soft spoken,fair and full of grace. She wore her nursing cap with pride and dedication.She was an angel on earth to all who knew her. .She always welcomed us( Sherbrooke Hospital staff) to the meadow for that wonderful summer picnic & get-togethers. and the many others social functions she was involved in,she was the one who you never wanted to forget to visit with and she always made time to greet each of matter where you fit on the totem pole of life.Truly remarkable women.
May all the love and memories be your strength for your tomorrows.
Sadly missed but never forgotten.

Gail Bennett and all your sisters

I am so very sad to read this obituary She was a beautiful lady and I find it hard to believe she was 88 I left Sherbrooke Hospital in 1975 so still think of her as being the age she was then
I can still " hear" her voice....
My heart goes out to ALL of you in her family....Please know that so very many people you do not know were touched by the kindness this lovely lady gave to everyone she met...

Thinking of you and you family at this difficult time and sending my sympathy.
I shall forever remember Madeleine as my sister in Nursing who I worked with at the Sherbrooke Hospital. As a supervisor she was always so supportive, gentle and kind as she guided you through any medical concerns you had. More recently I was always so happy to see her on different occasions and to chat with her. Rest in peace.

Mary-Lou and family

My sympathy to you and your family. I have fond memories of working with Mrs Irving in the Sherbrooke Hospital. I always felt secure when she was the nursing supervisor on duty during my work shift and that I could always rely on her to help me with my more difficult nursing tasks.Whatever the nursing crisis was she always approached it with her special calm and kind manner. What a gracious lady she was.
May she rest in peace and comfort.

"The Irving Girls" and their families

I worked at the Sherbrooke Hospital and got to know Mrs Irving and her girls that worked there. I had already known of them as we used to meet at the Armoury every Christmas, for the big Christmas party, when we were wee little ones.
Mrs. Irving always was calm, even under extreme pressure. She was soft spoken but could make everyone stop what they were doing, to hear what she had to say. I never saw the woman angry. Even when she scolded me, rightly so, for something that I should not have been doing, it was done with kindness.
She was very talented in knowing how to deal with people but she also had a talent for raising 7 beautiful people who also have parts of their Mom in them!!
My heart goes out to all of you at this most difficult of times. God bless you all.
