Madawaska and Skowhegan - Georgette Susan (Michaud) Pelletier, 82, passed away peacefully at her daughter's home surrounded by family on June 1, 2019. Sue was born in Edmundston, New Brunswick, to Marie (Neveu) Michaud and Arthur Pierre Michaud November 27, 1936, the 10th of 12 children.
She grew up and graduated from Madawaska high school. After a brief move to Connecticut, Sue moved back to Madawaska and married J. Clarence Pelletier August 28, 1958. Sue was athletic and looked forward to golf season with her friends, loved to snowshoe at the 4 Seasons Lodge, bowled many seasons, was one of the first women to play basketball in high school, and was a strong swimmer and skater winning many events. She loved music, whether it was old French songs, popular songs on radio to Broadway, or movie soundtracks. She was a tremendous cook and baker, had a wonderful sense of humor with stories and antics that had the room bursting with laughter.
Her faith and strong belief in prayer was the foundation of her life. She spent many years in the Daughters of Isabella. She volunteered at Church as a Eucharistic Minister and fulfilled her calling by working with children and adults at Maine Mental Health Services and Madawaska Rec Dept.
Sue was preceded in death by her husband, J. Clarence, siblings Pauline, Gabriel, Sr. Rita, Dave, Roland, John, and Pete, and Yolande. She is survived by her daughter Janice (Robert) Lake, son Paul (Susan), her sisters Muriel in Florida, Huguette in Edmundston, and one brother Guy in Atlanta, GA; her grandchildren Matthew, Daniel, and Stephanie and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the hospice nurses Nancy, Michelle, and Sara as well as her personal care attendants, Audrey, Trinna, and Gina for taking such great and gentle care of Mom.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences, as you mourn the departure of a very special woman. Sue is and will be remembered very fondly, and with a smile. Her character, personality, and color that she brought to this life, will not permit otherwise. I liked her, as did doubtless many others. My heart goes out to you.
