Sylvie Renelle Cormier, 44, of Moncton and formerly of Barachois, passed away peacefully on Tuesday March 9, 2021 lovingly surrounded by her family and friends at her home. Born in Moncton, Sylvie experienced the most beautiful, loving childhood, raised by devoted caring parents Roger and Marguerite (LeBlanc) Cormier of Barachois. They absolutely adored their daughter. She was their shining light and they nurtured Sylvie’s proud Acadian heritage.
Sylvie is survived by her soulmate and life-partner, Paul Arsenault. Their little ‘sweet-pea’ Danielle, entered their life as a true miracle and will carry on her mother’s spirit. She was her universe and Sylvie will be the guiding light throughout Danielle’s journey.
Sylvie fully embraced the love of her Nova Scotia Family, her rediscovered mother, and Nana to Danielle, Marcia (King) Simmons (Jim) of Porters Lake, NS along with two sisters: Claire Simmons (Rudy Vodicka) and Anna Simmons (Nick Lemieux) of Porters Lake, NS; one brother, Jeremy Simmons (Jayme Cunningham) of Dartmouth, NS, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Sylvie is also survived by her maternal grand-parents, Rina and Edgar LeBlanc of Barachois, and grand-mother, Sally King of Dartmouth. She was predeceased by her paternal grand-parents, Aristide and Hilda Cormier.
Sylvie was passionate about cultivating new friendships and relationships. With her calmness she carried an aura that people were drawn to and she kept her friends close to her heart. Sylvie had an infectious smile and radiated positivity with everything she did. Her spirit will live on through the friendships she made within her lifetime.
Sylvie appropriately chose a career in massage therapy, where she helped others with their healing over the past 20 years. By connecting with others in this way, she built many lifetime friendships. The love Sylvie shared with people was genuine, she always brought out the best in everyone. This helped her in the self-discovery needed during her own healing journey.
