Surrounded by her family, Claudette Cormier (Boudreau) passed away on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, at her residence in Pointe-aux-Bouleaux (Grand-Barachois), NB. Born in Grand-Barachois, she was the daughter of the late Yvon and Aurelie Boudreau.
Claudette obtained her nursing degree in Campbellton, NB, after her studies at the Bouctouche Convent. She worked as a nurse and became the Head Nurse at the Shediac Hospital. Claudette’s heart of gold made her an attentive nurse and well-liked by her peers and patients. She always went the extra mile for the people who surrounded her, both professionally and personally. She treated everyone like family.
Claudette was also the co-owner of the Bay Tavern in Shediac. Although she was co-owner, most would say she was the real boss behind the scenes. She did everything from the accounting to cooking the most delicious home-made meals. Most of all, she made everyone feel like home when they entered the door.
Claudette will be remembered for her sense of humor and her story telling. She would light up the room with her stories and her laughter.
Claudette’s dream throughout her life was to build a home in Pointe-aux-Bouleaux, where she was raised. She was grateful for being next to the water and the many sunsets and sunrises she witnessed there. Her spirit will always remain in that home that she cherished.
She is survived by her sons, Ron (Denise) and Danny; her granddaughters: Renee (Luc) and Chantal (Daniel); her great grandson, Caleb; close family friend, Martine Turmel, as well as many nieces and nephews that she shares a close bond and sister-in-law, Rose.
Claudette was predeceased by her husband, Ben; her brothers and sister: Abel (Anna), Eric (Marguerite), Ulysse (Dorilla), Charlie (Geraldine), Gerard, Emery and Antoinette (Arthur).
Claudette’s family wants to thank the Shediac Extramural, Dre Chantal Arseneault and the many care takers that took great care of her during the last few years.
As per the family's wish to limit the spread of Covid 19, there will be no visitations. There will be a private funeral for invited guests only to be determined at a later date. Interment will be in the St-Henri de Barachois cemetery, Grand-Barachois. The funeral will be videotaped and posted after January 7th on her obituary on our website.
