The family announces with great sorrow the passing of Monique Lachance-Rudd aged 49 of Blezard Valley on June 30, 2017 at Maison McCulloch Hospice. Beloved wife of 22 years to Martin Rudd, loving mother of Jessica and Ian. Daughter to Albert and Helen Lachance (predeceased). She will be fondly remembered by her large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Monique’s passions included spending quality time with her family. She had a great love of the outdoors including all creatures big and small. She was a conservationist and naturalist, and enjoyed jobs relating to those fields. Her leisure time was spent adventuring the French River, horseback riding, reading, and peaceful times at camp. She loved the time spent with her “Horse” family and her “Hockey” family. In keeping with her wishes, the family would like to invite friends and family to join in the celebration of Monique’s life that will be held on Sunday, July 23rd at 2pm located at the Masonic Temple Banquet Room, 845 Regent Street (behind Extendicare York adjacent to Sudbury Regional Hospital Services). A sincere thank you to the staff at Maison McCulloch Hospice and to all family and friends who have been so supportive during this challenging time.
