Passed away suddenly on Saturday May 27th, 2023, at her home in Sudbury, Ontario. She was predeceased in 2007, by her loving husband of 45 years, Raymond Michael Morin. Madeleine was a devoted, loving mother to her son: Sean Morin and her daughter: Diane Morin-Leblanc. She will be sadly missed by her son in law Rick Leblanc. Madeleine was also recently predeceased, by her daughter in law Riitta Clarini (May 21, 2023). She will be fondly remembered by Nancy Prime and Eric Kanerva.
Madeleine was known as “Grandmaman” to her 5 grandchildren: Samantha Morin (Matt), Kennedy Morin (Andrew), Sage Morin (Joshua), Natasha Mullen (Dave), Kaitlyn Morin-Leblanc (Alex). She will always be remembered as a very precious Great-Grand-maman to her 5 great grandchildren: Jackson, Lincoln, Brooklyn, Cooper, and Winnie.
Madeleine was born in Notre-Dame-du-Bonsecours (Papineauville), Québec to her father, René Huppé and her mother Beatrice Parisien, on February 2nd, 1933. Dear sister to Claudette Thivierge, Francine Houle, Yvon Huppé and Come Boucher of Rockland, Ontario. She will be fondly remembered by her surviving sister(s) in law, Lorraine Morin and Estelle Huppé, as well as all Madeleine’s many cousins, nieces and nephews in the Rockland/Cumberland/Becketts Creek and Ottawa region.
After moving to Beckett’s Creek, Ontario with her family, she met the love of her life, Ray Morin (who happened to be her next-door neighbour). At age 19, Madeleine and Ray were married, and they left their home and extended family in Rockland, to lay their roots and raise their children in Sudbury, Ontario. It is in Sudbury, where the couple made many life-long friendships. Madeleine will be sadly missed by these friends (that she loved, like Family) especially her nearest and dearest friend and neighbour Susan (Susie) Basto, who was always there for her!
Madeleine was a very intelligent woman (the master at Sudoku), witty, adventurous and had a fiercely independent spirit. There wasn’t a craft she could not do (paper toll, cross stitch, crochet, knitting, painting). She was a professional seamstress, making wedding dresses and quilts that adorn people’s bedrooms, to this day. She was a talented artist, and an avid gardener who could bring life to any plant in her care. She adored nature, animals particularly birds. Madeleine was happiest outside in her gazebo or in her flower gardens. She loved the outdoors and camping and was able to travel in an RV from Coast to Coast to see Canada. Madeleine was fortunate to have traveled many places in this world with friends and relatives. She was an extremely good cook, and her passion to express her love was through her culinary skills, providing a home cooked meal. Her cherished family recipes can be found in all our cookbooks and her traditions continue, at our family gatherings.
Madeleine encouraged each one of us to live with a “Joie de Vivre” and bring beauty and passion to what we do.
To celebrate Madeleine’s LIFE, a service will be held Thursday, June 8th,2023 from 3- 7 pm at Lougheed's Funeral Home, 252 Regent Street Sudbury. All Family and Friends are welcome to gather and reminisce about Madeleine. As per Madeleine’s wishes, there will be another service at Paroisse Très Sainte Trinité (Rockland, Ontario) date (TBD). At that time, Madeleine will be laid to rest (alongside her husband Ray) at the Holy Trinity Cemetery in 1080 Laurier Street, Rockland Ontario.
