A RECORDING OF THE SERVICE IS AVAILABLE BELOW.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Murielle Carlson, beloved wife of John Carlson of Bellevue, Alberta, who succumbed to an aggressive cancer on August 3, 2020 at the tender age of 60 years.
Marie Yvette Murielle Lapointe was born on February 19, 1960 in Jonquiere, Quebec to proud parents, Gerard and Aurore Lapointe. She and her six siblings were raised with an appreciation for faith, family and community.
Murielle was educated in Quebec and at the age of twenty, she moved to Alberta to raise a family. She had several suitors in her day but only one man captured her heart, John Carlson. They pledged their love in marriage on August 21, 2004 and made the Crowsnest Pass their home.
Murielle provided for her family with dedication and self-sacrifice. She gained employment with the Canada Post Agency and later opened the popular ice cream shoppe so many of us have enjoyed. She was a member of the Bellevue Legion and loved to walk her cherished dogs, being outdoors often, sending gifts to family and friends and time spent with her children. Murielle loved life and smiled often with her positive outlook and charismatic nature. She will be fondly remembered and dearly missed.
She is survived by her devoted husband, John Carlson; her beloved son, Nathan Lapointe; her precious step-children, Jeffrey (Alison) Hansen-Carlson, John (Danielle) Carlson, Jillian Hansen-Carlson and Natasha (John) Haluck; her precious grandchildren, Jordyn, Piper, Beck, Jack, Rylan, Serentiy, Gauge and Saige; her siblings, Rene (Christine Girard) Lapointe, Lucille Lapointe, Celine Lapointe, Joel (Linda Girard) Lapointe and Dino (Nancy Pageau) Lapointe; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and her many friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Gerard and Aurore and her brother, Martial.
