GERVAIS-LAJAMBE, Denise
19/01/1925 - 30/12/2012

Denise had a long career in the areas she loved best, fashion and art. She studied painting and printmaking in Germany in the 1950's and worked for many years thereafter in Quebec City for La Maison Simons as fashion illustrator, a position for which she was accorded media recognition and awards. She likewise held a number of solo art exhibits, particularly in Ogunquit, Maine, a place she adored for its blustering, agitated sea and inspirational walks along a rocky pass known as The Marginal Way. Upon her retirement from Simons, she returned to her city of birth, Montreal, in the early 1990's. Denise leaves behind a granddaughter, a brother and her daughter Madeleine as well as the hard-working staff that cared for her so well these past few years at the CHSLD of St-Margaret's Residence.
