Suzanne COUTU (nee Bachelet)

May 12, 1925 - February 12, 2020

Obituary

Suzanne grew up in Brosseau, Alberta, the daughter of Gaston & Sylva Bachelet and sister to Robert, Constance & Oliver.
She married Hector Coutu on October 31st, 1949 and together they farmed in Brosseau.

Suzanne Coutu passed away at the age of 94 and leaves behind 5 children, Annette (Robert) Moser, Roland Coutu, Adrian (Debbie) Coutu, Denise (Andy) Robinson, Yvonne (Wayne) Baxter; 17 grandchildren, Felice (Trevor), Brett (Brigida), Bryce, Michael (Sherry), Jennifer (Ed), Patricia (Cody), Mark, Nathan (Katey), Jason (Dale), Daniel (Tirzah), Ashley (Dalen), Lance (Amanda), Trish (Jason), Drew (Tiffannie), Chris (Kim), Bob (Julie), Colin (Nikki) & 35 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Lorraine Bachelet & Marie Bachelet; numerous nieces & nephews. She was predeceased by her son, Raymond; parents, Gaston & Sylva; husband, Hector; brothers, Oliver & Robert; sister, Constance; grandson, Ryan; & great-granddaughter, Hannah.

Suzanne will be greatly missed for her love, generosity, sense of humor, dedication to her family & friends, and for her compassion towards all. Her recipe for a happy life was daily prayer, love for family, concern for those in need and absolute trust in God. The Coutu family wishes to thank the staff at the Hillside Lodge, Long Term Care, and all healthcare professionals for their care in making our mother’s later years comfortable. A Prayer Service will be held on Friday, February 21 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Laurent Roman Catholic Church, Brosseau.
