"Hard to believe": Friends jiddissolvu victims & # 39; Yukon attack


The friends are looking to Valérie The BERT as a woman with & # 39; robust and dynamic, you love nature, and pillar of the Francophone community & # 39; Yukon.

The battle & # 39; 37 years was killed Monday, along with & # 39; bintuha of & # 39; 10 months, Adele Roesholt. The two were alone in the car & # 39; their remote trapping at that time. The baby's father, Gjermund Roesholt, found their body – and killed dead dead – when he returned from a day to check his pull.

"It's so hard to temmenha", said Piuze Madeleine, one of the closest friends & # 39; & # 39 in The BERT; Yukon.

"She will be remembered as a woman with & # 39; robust and positive, loving and generous and respectful – and respecting nature, as well. Like, it was just a nature lover", she said.

"Just an amazing lady. The best friend ever."

The family cabin is in the northeast & # 39; Mayo, Yukon, near the N.W.T. border. Piuze says Gjermund Roesholt came home to Whitehorse on Tuesday, to be greeted by friends. It says that gathered on Tuesday evening to endure and offer support.

"We are so lucky to nħossuhom was willing to us, and made a big difference for us and probably also for him – to feel that we were all together", she said.

"He was only able to speak to the group about what was going on – and how happy they were, before, on the trapline, and how beautiful."

The BERT, originally from Quebec, and Roesholt, originally from Norway, had their trapline for about three years, and wolves, foxes, lynx and other animals harvested. The BERT design and sell products made from fur, while Roesholt also worked as guide horses.

They spent several months in their trapline of & # 39; this fall, while The BERT was on maternity leave from her job as a teacher & # 39; French immersion in & # 39; Windhorse.

"It was the time of their life", said Piuze.

Community & # 39; tight

The BERT moved to Yukon over a decade ago. She made many friends over the years, many of them through the Francophone Association of the territory.

The Francophone community & # 39; Yukon is a combined – there are about 1,500 people in the territory consider first French, and most live in & # 39; Windhorse.

"[Théorêt] was a small woman, full & # 39; energy, known around the community because it was involved in & # 39; a lot of things ", said Salesse Isabelle, executive director & # 39; L & # 39; Association franco-yukonnaise (AFY).

"It's like a domino effect, and everyone is affected by this news."

Twelve years ago, the Francophone community & # 39; Yukon was devastated by attack & # 39; another deadly animal. Jean-French OIS Page, 28, was mauled to death by a grizzly while staking mining claims near Ross River.

Salesse says Page – also remembered as a dynamic and adventurous spirit – remains unfulfilled. She believes that the loss of & # 39; The BERT and a baby equally Adele will have a lasting impact.

"It involves a child, and it involves someone who has done so well to the community and was so positive – it's just unthinkable", she said.

"Everyone is affected by this news," said Isabelle Salesse, executive director & # 39; the Association franco-yukonesise. (Wayne Vallevand / CBC)

"What was that laqatni [Thé​orêt] was always smiling. He had this big smile … her child has been pursuing the same way. "

On Thursday, AFY will open its doors in Whitehorse to anyone who wants to be together, or can & # 39; it needs support. The group invited a psychotherapist recorded to be on hand, from 2:30 to 9 p.m., for anyone who wants to talk.
