Raymonde graduated in Nursing from Hotel Dieu St. Joseph in Tracadie in 1962.

She worked in many hospitals including Hotel Dieu St. Joseph, the Saint John General Hospital, the Halifax Infirmary, St. Rita’s in Sydney, Colchester Regional Hospital in Truro, and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Saint John. She loved spending her retirement years travelling across the US, at their resort in Myrtle Beach and at Pleasant Lake Campground in Calais, Maine, gardening, being outside, and socializing with her family and friends.
