Amelda Robichaud Obituary

Amelda Robichaud, (Whalen) (nee Mooney) in her 93rd year, formerly from Bear River, Souris; peacefully passed away with family by her side at Whisperwood Villa on March 6th, 2024 in Charlottetown, P.E.I.

Daughter of the late Andy and Emily Mooney (Foley); and beloved wife of the late Joseph Whalen and the late Art Robichaud.

Amelda is survived by her eight children: Gerard (Dianne), Brendon (Joanne), Jim, David (Anne Marie), Wanda Canning (Gord), Karen Moore (Carl), Cathy and Michael (Ana). 

Lovingly remembered by her grandchildren: Evan, Nathan, Brett, Erin, Melissa, Bethany, Dave, Amanda, Rachel, Skylar, Ava, Alex, Emily, Michael Jr., Mathew and Marcus. Predeceased by granddaughter Amelia. Survived by numerous nieces, nephews and great- grandchildren.

Predeceased by her siblings, Harold, Mary, John F. (Annie) and Art (Kay) Mooney. Survived by her brother-in-law Bill Whalen (Vera) and sister-in-law Sharon Whalen (Jim deceased).

Special thanks to all of the staff and personnel at Whisperwood Villa Nursing home for their loving care given to our mother in particular: Darlene, Elsie, Esher and Trish McInnis.

 

Amelda will be missed by her good friend and former co-worker Bernadette Paquet, Sister Marie Hagen and lifelong childhood friend Phyllis Robertson.

Amelda was deeply religious and a hard worker throughout her life, working on the family farm, harvesting Irish moss, cutting pulp wood, growing vegetables to sell at (Cheverie’s and Mel MacPhee’s) and working as a nurse at Colville Manor for twenty years. She loved to play a good joke, have a good laugh and to make people laugh. She enjoyed writing tributes to commemorate the personal milestones attained by her friends, co-workers, and family. Amelda was a “go to” person in her community and was always available to help others, especially the young people. Although she never owned a cookbook, she loved cooking a good meal and she made sure that “no one” left her house hungry. She enjoyed playing auction 45 and cribbage. Two of her fondest memories were: working as a nurse for a year in 1951 in Sainte Agathe, Quebec and as mom put it, “the trip of a lifetime” travelling across Canada for eight weeks in a renovated van with her husband Art Robichaud.
