Brothers and sisters,

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mrs. Marie-Josée Lemieux, president of UFCW Local 503.

Marie passed away on Sunday March 20. She had worked at the local union for more than fifteen years. During this time, she held various positions in organizing, member servicing, negotiation, employment insurance claims, secretary-treasurer and, for the past four years, president of the local union.

Marie set herself apart during all those years by her openness, her credibility and her great commitment to HER MEMBERS, even to the detriment of her family life.

She impared a certain nobleness upon the union, to which she left her heart.

We will never forget you, MARIE!
