BOUDREAU, Ava J. M. – Cumberland Bay, NB

Peacefully at the Sussex Health Center, surrounded by her parents Ava Jane Maureen Boudreau went to be with Jesus on April 25, 2020.

Ava will be greatly missed by her parents, sister, Autumn; maternal grandparents, Greg & Sandra Fairweather; paternal grandparents, Sandra Boudreau and Dan Café; aunt, Valerie Dubeau and Rob; uncle, Owen Fairweather; several great aunts, uncles; many cousins and friends.

Ava was a wild hearted, free spiritied little girl, and wouldn’t settle if she didn’t get her own way. She didn’t just love a few people. She loved everyone. Ava lived life to the fullest and enjoyed nearly every single moment. From swinging on swings, climbing monkey bars, flipping on trampolines to playing in running water, running through fields. Going hunting and fishing, and collecting bugs, worms, salamanders and all crawly creatures. She loved to eat, sing, dance and ask every possible question imaginable. She rarely walked but you could often find her running or skipping. She grew into a compassionate and appologetic little girl. She gave the best/ strongest hugs and didn’t just love a little bit she loved to infinity because that is never ending. Ava is now eternally enjoying the Beauty of heaven with our Lord and Savior.

A Celebration of Ava’s life will be held at the First Chipman United Baptist Church at a later date.

Donations in memory of Ava made to the charity of choice would be greatly appreciated by the family.

BOUDREAU, Roger – Bronson Settlement, NB

Roger Boudreau of Bronson Settlement, NB passed away suddenly at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 76 years.  Roger was born on January 21, 1944. Son of the late Edmond and Josephine (LeBlanc) Boudreau, he is survived by his loving wife, Odette; their children, Bonnie, Nathalie and Daniel; brothers, Paul, Alphée, Stanley and Michael; many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by his brothers, Robert and Angus; sisters, Eva, Lorraine, Mary and Exelda.

Roger’s great love and pride was for his wife and his three children. But his two grandchildren were especially precious to him, the biggest blessing of his life. He would have moved mountains for them if they had asked him to. And he could have. He loved to work and he worked hard. He also loved the outdoors, especially being in the woods. He grew up in Bronson Settlement and learned to fish and hunt with his brothers. He knew the woods and all the trails in Bronson like the back of his hand. He also loved and respected his friends very dearly and never missed a chance just to have coffee with them, or to help out in any way he could. He loved a good laugh and a good hunting story. He loved any activity that brought him outdoors to the woods; berry picking, 4 wheeling, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. He was very happy to build a home for his family on the old family homestead in Bronson. He was a very strong, active, healthy man all his life. No physical challenge was daunting to Roger until last year when cancer reared its ugly head. He was the best husband, father and grandfather anyone could ever ask for.

A graveside service will take place in the Bronson Cemetery at a later date.  Donations in memory of Roger made to Saint Barbara’s Parish, Minto, NB would be appreciated.
