MARJORIE LYNN DOUCETTE

Doucette-DeathMARJORIE LYNN DOUCETTE

Surrounded by family, Marjorie Lynn Doucette passed away peacefully on April 1, 2016 at Maison Vale Hospice in Sudbury Ontario in her 66th year after a long fought battle with lung cancer. Survived by her loving husband Leonard Doucette of Hanmer, daughter Paulie (Darrin) Nodecker of Gore Bay, son Andy Doucette of Grande Prairie, Alberta, three grandchildren Avery, Kyle and Alexis and sister Ann Claridge of Gore Bay. Predeceased by her parents Ernest and Marjorie (Smith) Claridge. Lynn enjoyed spending her summers at their camp on Tobacco Lake, Manitoulin Island where there was always an open door for family and friends. Her greatest pleasure was spending time in the water with kids and grandkids and many friends. “Camp” is her legacy that will always have a very special place in all of our hearts and for generations to come. Lynn owned and operated her own hairdressing business – Lynn’s Beauty Salon, in Hanmer for 35 years. Running her business in her home to be close to her children was important to her. Children were her passion. As her own children were getting older she and Len began fostering children with special needs. In 20 years of working with the Children’s Aid Society they cared for more than fifty children. Family was important to Lynn and she opened her heart to give the care and attention these children so deserved. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2016 at 11 am at the Lyons Memorial United Church in Gore Bay. Interment to follow at the Gordon Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Maison Vale Hospice in Sudbury or Lyons Memorial United Church in Gore Bay as expressions of sympathy.
