In Memoriam

We have just heard from the Fédération Québeçoise de Camping et de Caravaning Inc., that the President of the Canadian federation, Mrs. Louise Saindon, died on Saturday 7 July after a difficult and serious illness.
Mrs. Saindon was a young, smart, dynamic person and had been a member of the F.I.C.C. Council for the past five years. She was only the second lady ever to be elected on to the Council and was held in great esteem worldwide. She was a worthy representative of her club, her federation and her country. Always friendly, her presence was much appreciated not only within the Council, but also among the many contacts and friends she made at international rallies.

The Montmagny Rally, for which she worked tirelessly, was dear to her heart but in the end, as her illness progressed, she had to hand over the final arrangements to her devoted team. She wanted so much to “keep going“ until after the Rally so that she could welcome her friends to Montmagny, but sadly it was not to be.

We are saddened at our loss and our thoughts are with her husband, her two daughters and family and with FQCC too.

Louise Saindon will always have a place in our hearts and be remembered by everyone associated with F.I.C.C. We will do our best to enjoy Rally 2012 in Canada – just as Louise would have wanted us to do.

On behalf of the F.I.C.C. Council
João Alves Pereira
President
