Bonne fete

Happy birthday to Irene Laurianne Poisson, Bryan's great-grandmother. Irene was born 3 January 1917, the oldest of seven children of Wilfred Joseph and Laura Anne Marie (Ouellette) Poisson.  Irene grew up in Livermore Falls where she attended St. Rose Catholic school through the 8th grade.  Her parents and ancestors came from Province Quebec.  Irene carried on the family's French-Canadian traditions, many of which we celebrate today.  My personal favorite is tortiere (meat pie) at the holidays.  Irene and her sisters would speak French while preparing the Thanksgiving meal.  Grammie Irene died in 1982 but we still remember her on this special day.  Happy birthday, Grammie, or as they say in Quebec, Bonne fete!
