From The Montreal Gazette:

Léa Guilbault’s funeral will be held Tuesday starting at 11 a.m. at Église Ste. Thérèse-de-l'Enfant Jésus, 8200, St. Hubert St., just north of Jarry St. in Montréal.

Friends and family members of Léa Guilbeault said they were still in disbelief Monday about her sudden death.

About 100 people paid their respects Monday afternoon to the family of the 33-year-old woman who died Thursday after being crushed by a slab of precast concrete that fell from the 18th floor of the Marriott Residence Inn on Peel St. while she dined with her husband, Hani Beitinjaneh, also 33, at the Mikasa Sushi Bar on the building’s ground floor. Visitation for Guilbeault was held between 2 and 5 p.m. and again from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Urgel Bourgie funeral home on Beaumont Ave. in Town of Mount Royal.
