TIFENNE Madame, Marie-Hyacinthe-Leonie, née Gilbert

Born June 4, 1843 in Alençon, died June 9, 1930 in Alençon.

Friend of the Martins, she marries Mr. Jacques Tifenne, pharmacist. They won't have children but will watch over their nephews Thérèse and Pierre, orphans. She is the godmother of Léonie and will keep all her life a faithful friendship for the Martin and Guérin families. It's her home that the Martins went down when they returned to Alençon after 1877, notably in August 1883.
