Adina Dufaut 1929-2023

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of one special lady. Adina Dufaut (nee Dobberman) at the age of 93 years on March 07, 2023 in North Vancouver, B.C.

When The Lord called her name she left this world on angel wings leaving behind her constant companion and caregiver son Rene Dufaut.

Adina was predeceased by her husband Robert of 62 years in 2012. Also meeting her at heaven's gates are 3 sisters, Val Stewart Turnball, Nina Balbon, and Adeline Bresch.
Brothers Robert and Reinhold Rawe and her parents Martha and Joseph Dobberman.
She will be forever missed by many nephews and nieces and their families and a great many friends too.

Adina was born on November 14, 1929 in Guersey, Saskatchewan. She grew up on the family farm and moved to Winnipeg as a teenager, enrolled in nursing school, graduated and started her hospital career.
She married Robert Dufaut on September, 21, 1949 and Rene was born 10 months later. Adina gave up her nursing career to devote her time to raising her new born son. Adina embedded herself in the Bob's Heating ltd. Business and never looked back. She worked hard everyday by her husband's side in St. Boniface. She always had a pot of coffee ready to pour you a cup and had time to chat.

After selling the business, they moved to West Vancouver where Adina enjoyed her retirement, spending many hours loving her home and yard. She was a woman of faith and was always willing to lend an ear.

Adina will be remembered as a kind and loving soul as evident in her son Rene who lived and cared for her his whole life.

You will be forever loved and missed, Mom, Aunty, and Friend.

Mass of Christine Burial will be held on Thursday March 23, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Anthony's Catholic Church 2347 Inglewood Avenue, West Vancouver.
