Rene De La Voye

'The circumstances of the death of our ancestor deserve to be reported. On 11 March 1696, Rene Lavoie died at Chateau-Richer where he had been staying, perhaps at the home of his daughter Marie-Madeleine, wife of Etienne Godard. The very touching burial act reports this: '...died rene de la voye... dying suddenly in the road where he was beginning his walk to Holy Mass in the church of this parish.' In his walk to church, Rene found the road to Heaven!'
