We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Claudette Raymonde Moroz (née Goulard) 83, of Sudbury ON, on April 4, 2023, surrounded by her family. Claudette was born in May 1939 to Juliette and Alderic Goulard in Field, ON, a gift to her mother on Mother’s Day. In her childhood, Claudette was an adorable young girl and proudly boasted to have later been a high school basketball champion in Espanola. She valued education and ensured the generations after her understood the importance of lifelong learning. After high school, Claudette worked at Bell Telephone for many years as a switchboard operator. While also working the ticket booth for the Espanola Eagles, Claudette would eventually sell a ticket to William Moroz who would become the love of her life for 61 glorious years. It wasn’t just a hockey ticket for Bill. It was the prize of a lifetime. Claudette and William would go on to have children Ted and Traci who considered their Mom “their rock and their mentor”. The family would expand to daughter-in-law Luisa, son-in-law Paul, and grandchildren Samantha (grandson-in-law Jake), Will, Grace and Matthew, great grandchildren Piper, Logan, and Wyatt and grandpup Cooper. The grandkids and great grandkids will miss their “Grammy” dearly. Spaghetti and meatballs, blueberry muffins, cinnamon buns, and chocolate chip cookies will never be the same again. For a French-Canadian woman, she excelled at perfecting Bill’s favourite Ukrainian foods of Holubtsi, Studinetz, and Pedaheh. Claudette will be greatly missed by her sisters Gaetan, Giselle, Francois, and Suzanne, and her brother Marcel. She’ll just move over to the other card game where she can join her predeceased siblings, Paul, Claude, Raymond, Simone, and Collette at the table. She will also be missed by generations of nieces and nephews. She will be missed by her cousin Rita Boulard at their weekly meet ups. Claudette will also be dearly missed by her life-long close friend Evelyn Milne. Claudette had the biggest heart and the most beautiful smile. She was a private and quiet person, very witty, fun and incredibly compassionate. She was a role model for class and dignity. She treasured her photographs, and everyone relied on her sharp memory for special dates. She loved keeping up with everything that her grandkids and great grandkids were up to from dance to hockey and enjoyed a lifelong passion for reading. She was fearless and strong-willed, and those traits undoubtedly helped her deal with her health challenges in later years. Claudette was an incredibly strong woman in all aspects, and we know that wherever she is, she is “dancing the night away…” We would like to give sincere thanks to Dr. Mirka for her dedicated care and to the compassionate nursing staff on 6 South at HSN. Very special thanks to home healthcare workers Stephanie and Carol, who provided kindness and support to Claudette. There will be no service at this time; a burial will take place at another date. In keeping with Claudette’s empathic nature for others, donations can be made directly to The Sudbury Food Bank https://www.sudburyfoodbank.ca/.
