It is with profound sadness and love that the family of Claire Michaud (nee Lafontaine) announces her death at Extendicare York on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at the age of 82 years. Daughter of the late Lionel and Jeannette (Asselin). Beloved wife of Sylvio Michaud (predeceased). Beloved mother of Guy, Louise Julian (Steven), Yvon (Pauline), Suzette Chessell (Steve), Pierre (Estelle) and Paul. Cherished grandmother of 11 and great-grandmother of 9. Dear sister of Denise Lapointe (late Vital) and Henriette Landry (Albert). Predeceased by her brothers Marcel Lafontaine (Esther), Richard Lafontaine (Helene), Daniel Lafontaine (Adrienne) and Ronald Lafontaine. Lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Claire loved spending time with her family who were always her priority. Every holiday season, she cooked dozens of her famous “tourtières” and gifted most to family and friends. She enjoyed cooking, baking and took pride in everything she did. She had a great love for shopping and socializing, and always loved a good party. She enjoyed her country music, slot machines, travelling and road trips. She will be forever in the hearts and memories of family and friends. We would like to especially thank the staff at Extendicare York for their kindness and compassion during her final days. To respect her privacy, there will be no visitation or service.
