It's with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Simone Sullivan, a loving wife, devoted mother, and exceptional grandmother, on April 17th, 2021, at age 86. Simone leaves behind her cherished husband of 66 years, Tom Sullivan, her beloved daughter, Shirley Michaud (Charles Michaud) and her cat, Fluffy. She joins her youngest daughter, Joyce Piovesan, in heaven above. Simone loved her 4 granddaughters (Geneviève, Alexis, Brittany and Rachel) and 4 great-grand-children (Emma-Jane, Christian, Ruston and Samuel) dearly. She is also survived by one brother, Gerald, and many nieces and nephews who will miss her. She's predeceased by both her father and mother, Honoré Ouellette and Malvina Picard, and 7 brothers and sisters.
Simone was born in 1934, the 8th of 9 children, in Edmundston, New Brunswick. She moved to Ottawa in 1953, where she met and married the love of her life, Tom, in 1954. Simone was a proud and supportive Army wife, who loved travelling throughout Europe and curling in many different countries. Simone was an excellent seamstress who made beautiful one-of-a-kind clothes for her daughters. But don't let that fool you. Simone could shoot a rifle as a member of the Petawawa Rifle Club and showed no fear when she went skydiving at the age of 78! Simone was a faithful member of the Catholic Women's League in Russell and supported her husband who's a 4th degree knight with the Russell Knights of Columbus.
We would like to thank the staff at Caressant Care Bourget for the kindness and care they showed Simone and Tom over the past 3 years.
Due to the pandemic, a private Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Parish, Russel, ON at a later date.
