Memorable Manitobans: Marie Rose Jeanne Tougas (1915-2007)

Nun.

Born at Ste Anne des Chênes on 22 June 1915, second in a family of 13 children of Féodore Tougas and Paméla Fontaine, she became a Grey Nun in August 1941. One of her paternal aunts with the same name having preceded her in the Order, she took the name Marie to facilitate identification. She worked first as a cook then in housekeeping at the St. Boniface Sanatorium, Regina (Saskatchewan) Hospital, La Verendrye Hospital (Fort Frances, Ontario), the Provincial House and Ste Rose du Lac. In 1973, she became the Director of Activities at Villa Youville at Ste Anne and, from 1982 to 1992, she was a pastoral worker visiting the sick and elderly of this facility. She was the Director of Centre Laurent for seven years. In recognition of her exemplary community service, she was given a Manitoba Good Citizenship Award (1963). She died at Winnipeg on 25 June 2007.
