In Memoriam – Monique Cormier

Monique Cormier

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Monique Cormier on October 12, 2016. Monique passed away peacefully surrounded by family and close friends. The National Capital Able Sail Association (NCASA) and the entire Able Sail community was blessed to have Monique in our midst.

Monique took great joy in the time she spent in support of the disabled sailing. She did everything asked of her. Her service included travelling to regattas to support sailors, serving on the board of NCASA, supporting the planning and implementation of both the 2003 and 2012 Mobility Cups and several local National Capital Cups and supporting sailors without hesitation. She was a champion of disabled sailing, doing all of this not having been a sailor which makes it even more remarkable. Her energy was infectious and she never failed to roll up her sleeves and do what needed to be done.

She will be missed but Monique’s spirit and smile will be forever with us.


Monique died of cancer on 12 October and she was buried on 18 October.

Donations in her memory may be made to Programme Extra-Mural de Caraquet. Send your condolences and donations to Famille Cormier, 186 rue Boudreau, Caraquet NB E1W1A5.  (tel 506 726 6066)

  1. Monique Cormier will truly be missed at NCASA. She gave us support in so many ways. My prayers will always be with her. May she rest in peach. God bless her.

  2. Monique
    Was a cheerful supporter of the disabled sail program in the formative years and her dogged hard work was a major factor in the success of the program today I remember her good cheer and unbending support .
    We will all miss her.
