Biographical history

David Lefebvre (1888-1955), son of François Xavier Lefebvre and Léocadie Lapointe, married Adélina Lebel (1893-1987), daughter of Paul Lebel and Geneviève Bouchard, on 27 September 1910 in St-Herménégilde. Together they had two children: Normand (married Germaine Labbé in June 1936) and Francella (married Florian Ménard in October 1940). In 1919, David Lefebvre started a funeral service, along with a taxi and ambulance service, in Coaticook. He carried out this work until his death in 1955. Later on, Fernand Riendeau became director of the Frais Funeraires. Florian Ménard also worked for the Lefebvre funeral service as an ambulance driver and embalmer.
