Madeleine Mary Renaud
Madeleine “Mandy” Renaud, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2019, at the age of 89. Born February 4, 1930. Beloved wife of 70 years to Louis, who has been her best friend, soulmate and dedicated caregiver in recent years – and who always called her “Boots.” Devoted mother to Mary Lou (Tom) O’Brien, Rob (Jill) Renaud, Cindy (Kirk) Walstedt and John Renaud. Adoring grandma to Jennifer (Mark), Amy, Justin (Karen), Nathan (Kim), Shawn (Sarah), Andrew (Julie), Jamie (Monique), Samantha (Aron) and Katy (Eric). Loving great grandmother to Noah, Lily, Finn, Leo, Iley, Ava and Elita. Dearly loved sister of Mary Lou Brownlee (late Ken), Nelson Soulliere (late Margaret) and Raymond (Leslie) Soulliere, and sister-in-law of Cecile Noel (late Roger) and Dorothy Renaud (late Joe). Will be missed by former daughter-in-law Wendy Renaud. Mandy was predeceased by her infant son Thomas, her parents Clifford and Margaret Soulliere, brothers Lawrence (Pauline), Leo (Dorothy) and George (Madeline) and her sister-in-law Mercedes (Jack) Crosby and Mary Ann (Ed) Brennan.
Mandy grew up in west Windsor during the Great Depression and went to high school at Sandwich Collegiate (Forster), where she was a cheerleader. She worked at Kresge to help her family. At 19, she married Louis, and they built a beautiful life together. Mandy worked part time at Zellers, then the University of Windsor Library. She was also a faithful member of the CWL. Over the years, she and Louis spent many nights playing cards and laughing with friends. Mandy had a beautiful singing voice. She loved to cook and bake for people, and her guests were always in for a treat. Best pumpkin pie. Hands down.
She and Louis enjoyed amazing vacations all over the world. But Mandy was always happiest at home in her beautiful garden, close to her family.
Special thanks to her family doctor, Dr. Sharron Doyle, the wonderful staff at Lifetimes on Riverside and the Bayshore nurses who gave exceptional loving care.
God Bless You mom with peace and everlasting happiness in the eternal garden of heaven. We will all miss you and keep you close in our hearts forever.
