17 May 1920 - 8 July 2015

On July 8, 2015 Aurel Lemay, loving husband, confidante and life partner of Annette Lemay passed away peacefully at the age of 95. 

Aurel was from a large family. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Annette. He is survived by his siblings, Marguerite, Rene, Sylvia (Gordie) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brothers Albert, Henry, Louis and Leo. 

An early pioneer of Yellowknife’s gold mining legacy, and at the age of 20 travelled to Yellowknife in 1940 to join his father and begin a long and successful mining career.

Initially employed at the old Negus Mine as a labourer, Aurel advanced quickly as he proved himself to be a valuable and indispensable employee within the company.

His dedication and stellar work ethic soon saw him progress to become the mine’s essential ‘Boiler Maintainer’ (burning four cords of wood per 12 hour shift) to ‘Machine Doctor’ where he serviced and repaired underground mining equipment until the mine's closure in 1952.  Aurel then transferred to Cominco (Con Mine) as hoistman and premier ‘Hoist Trainer’ until his retirement in 1983.

Annette Lemay would like to offer her heartfelt thank you to Dr. Ewan  “He’s one good cook” Afflek,  Dr. Anna Reid, all of the staff at YKHSS Home Care and staff at Stanton Palliative Care Unit.

A memorial service will be held at the Baker Centre on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at 2:00 PM.

30 March 1963 - 29 June 2015

Funeral Service Thursday July 2, at St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church at 1:00 p.m. with burial to follow at Lakeview Cemetery.

Lawrence was born in Yellowknife in 1963, his parents are Mary Louise and Peter Sangris.  His godparents were Isadore and Rose Sangris. In his earlier years were spent in Dettah and when he was 8 years old the family moved to the city of Yellowknife. Lawrence loved adventures and lived in Ottawa and Edmonton for several years and eventually moved back home. He was a very cheerful and outgoing person with many close friends. He accepted his illness and endured his failing health with the support of his family for 28 years.  This did not hold him back from doing the things he loved to do and would travel to many places whenever he set his mind to it.

Lawrence was a very gentle, caring and humble person.   He would go out of his way to help others in need because he thought of others before himself.  He shared laughter and good advice to those he loved dearly.  You would always walk away from him with a smile on your face.

His lifestyle was simple. He focused more on his mother and her well-being.  Her strength and kindness was what kept him motivated. They were inseparable and had a close friendship to this day. He was a devoted son to his mother, Mary-Louise, she was his inspiration.

Their home was open to everybody, a place to relax and listen to stories about family history and legends.  He loved to speak his language telling stories that created much tears and laughter.  Whenever you visited their home, there was no shortage of traditional food, warm bannock and tea, it was always provided.

He was a genuinely creative, talented and artistic person. He proudly demonstrated his crafts such as sewing moccasins, earrings, necklaces, headdresses and outstanding dreamcatchers.  This was a good sentimental gift to you from him.  Many of you may have his souvenirs hanging in your rear view mirror.

The National Addiction Awareness event invited him to be a guest speaker.  He spoke to community members about his sobriety and his struggles with alcohol and drugs in his younger years which caused a long battle with dialysis.  He said, “If I could change and you put your mind to it, you can change too.”
