It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Nancy Beausoleil. A loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She fought a long battle with heart disease, and on November 25, 2019 left us too soon at the age of 73.
Nancy had quite the personality and possessed a great sense of humour! She loved life. Throughout her lifetime she was an avid gardener, an amazing cook, sewer and knitter. Nancy loved to bake. Her banana bread was legendary! If you wanted a loaf, you got a loaf! She gave away over a thousand loaves thru the years. It made her very happy to give. The other thing that made her happy were kids. She enjoyed making every child she met feel special. Nancy made sure she had treats to hand out. The joy she got from meeting all those kids, touched her heart immensely.
If there is one thing Nancy will definitely be remembered for, it was for her love of talking! It didn’t matter if she knew you or not. If Nancy wanted to talk, you were listening! A minute usually turned into an hour! She knew so many people, and stopping to say hi, making a joke and having a laugh meant so much to her.
For many years Nancy enjoyed meeting friends at McDonalds for coffee. She was very territorial about her favourite seat and wasn’t too thrilled if someone was sitting in it! She talked highly of all that worked there, and truly appreciated their kindness. If there’s a McDonalds in heaven, she’s probably sitting there with Liz having a good laugh!
Family meant so much to her. Her parents Joe and Fern, and her siblings Diana, Betty and Danny all passed before her. She missed them dearly and spoke of them often, keeping their memory alive. She remembered so much of her life and it was a joy listening to her tell all those stories.
By far though, Nancy’s greatest joy in life were her children and grandchildren. She raised her three children with deep passion and loved them with everything she had. Her six grandchildren meant more to her than life itself. She was so proud of each of them. She loved to carry her ipad with her and show pictures of them to everyone. Nanny will forever be remembered standing in the kitchen cutting up fruit, baking muffins and opening up packages of candy and chocolate for them. She loved to feed them! She loved to spend time with them. She loved to make them laugh and see them happy.
Nancy was married to Ray for 55 years. A long lasting love full of great memories. After Ray’s retirement ten years ago, they never spent time apart. Their time was spent with their family, or having coffee with friends, or just sitting at home saying hello to people walking by. Nancy and Ray were together until her last breath was taken.
Nancy will be lovingly remembered by her husband Raymond, and her children, Janet (Char Wood), Stephen (Susan Donaldson), and Terry (Tina), and her grandchildren, Olivia, Ian, Grace, Jack, Kate and Georgia. Also her brother John Moreau, nieces, nephews, extended family, her wonderful friends Jackie and Ruth, and all the other friends she made along the way.
Nancy’s wishes were not to have a service. Cremation has taken place and in the spring she will be laid to rest with her parents. To honour her memory, we kindly ask that the next time you have a coffee, please raise your cup and send her a smile.
Mom, the greatest gift is to love and to be loved…you certainly succeeded.
