Marie Therese (Marite) Langlois,
staff worker of Madonna House, died
peacefully on Saturday, March 23, 2019
in Our Lady of the Visitation, St. Mary’s,

Marite, daughter of Eugene Jean and
M. Cecily McDonnell Langlois, was born
in Westmount, Quebec. She attended

Convent of the Sacred Heart in Montreal,
and continued studies at McGill
University, Montreal.
She first visited Madonna House in
December 1950 and made her first
promises as a member of the Community

pioneered in the work of the Catholic Information Centre there. She
also served in Winslow, AZ, and for nearly ten years in the West Indies,
both on the island of Carriacou and in Victoria, Grenada. Aside
from time spent at Madonna House, Moncton, and Madonna House,
Alpena, MI, the rest of her apostolic life was in Combermere, where
her secretarial skills and her gift of hospitality enriched both members
of the community and guests.
Marite was predeceased by her parents, by her brother, Jean, and
by her sister, Babette Brody of Barry’s Bay, ON.
