In Loving Memory of Suzanne Inez Beaudry, born on November 15, 1934, and passed away on September 29, 2023, we remember a beloved wife, sister, mother, and grandmother. Suzanne was preceded in death by her husband Richard Marcel Conrad Beaudry, her parents Raphael and Lena Mallette, and her brother-in-law Jim Booth. She is survived by her children Joanne (Michel) Larocque, Marc (Terri), Raymond (Patti), David (Susan), Robert, and Patrick (Tricia), as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and step-grandchildren.
Suzanne’s journey began in Callander, Ontario, before her family moved to the village of Goward in Temagami North. Growing up, she and her sister Monique assisted their mother in operating a store and packing ice blocks in sawdust. She completed her education at St. Mary’s Academy in Haileybury, where she excelled in her studies and developed a passion for volleyball. Suzanne later worked for North Ontario Boat Lines in Temagami, where she fondly recalled meeting tourists. Summers spent on her grandparents’ farm in Corbeil were filled with joyful memories, and she also worked at the Dionne Quints Museum and store with her Aunt.
After finishing school, Suzanne found employment at the ONR in North Bay, where she crossed paths with Richard. The couple married on February 11, 1956, at St. Elizabeth Church in Temagami. Richard’s work with the Hydro Electric Power Commission necessitated several moves throughout Northeastern Ontario, but they remained deeply connected with their families. Suzanne’s strengths as a homemaker, seamstress, and gardener, along with her love for activities such as needlepoint, sewing, golf, and crafts, brought joy to her life. She was an active and cherished member of the Catholic Church in every community she resided in, including her involvement with the Catholic Women’s League and serving as president.
Suzanne will always be remembered for her unwavering love and care for her immediate and extended family, as well as her lifelong friends. Her ability to see the best in everyone endeared her to all who knew her. The family expresses their gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Manitoulin Centennial Manor for their exceptional care and compassion during Suzanne’s stay. A Funeral Mass will be held on October 10, 2023, at St. Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church, followed by interment at the Callander cemetery and a luncheon at the church hall. Memorial donations in Suzanne’s honor can be made to Manitoulin Centennial Manor in Little Current, Centennial Manor Auxiliary in Little Current, St. Kevin’s Catholic Church in Val Therese, or the foundation of one’s choice.
