Funeral for Norah and Romy Carpentier to be held Monday in Lévis

The funeral for Norah and Romy Carpentier, the two young sisters found dead last Saturday as provincial police searched for their father, will be held Monday in Lévis.

The Complexe funéraire Claude Marcoux said on Wednesday that because of COVID-19 restrictions, only the family of the girls can attend the ceremony.

However, the funeral will be broadcast on a screen outside the centre. Masks and social distancing will be mandatory for anyone who wants to watch the service.

The bodies of Norah, 11, and Romy, 6, were found in a wooded area near St-Apollinaire after an Amber Alert had been issued for the pair two days earlier. Their father, Martin Carpentier, remains the subject of a police manhunt.

In an obituary posted Wednesday, the family of the girls thanked police, first responders and volunteers “who gave all that they could, in very particular circumstances, in order to bring Norah and Romy home.”

The girls’ deaths have left family and friends devastated.

“We will always regret not having had more than 11 and six springtimes where you were present in our lives, but the memories and love you gave to us will remain etched in us forever,” reads the death notice.

The funeral will take place at the complex at 4 p.m. Monday; the doors will open at noon.
