Print Obituary print this page

Françoise Surette, 40, of Moncton, passed away on Wednesday November 1, 2023 at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC following a lengthy illness. Born in Moncton, she was the daughter of Louie and Denise (Cormier) Surette of Calgary, AB, formerly of Moncton.

Françoise had an all-embracing sense of curiosity and was interested in subjects that were as eclectic as they were topical. A graduate of Concordia University’s BFA program, she was passionate about art, music, and history, and was a gifted conversationalist with anyone she crossed paths with. Having won the prize for "most sociable person" in kindergarten, Françoise fittingly surrounded herself with many friends throughout her life. She loved being in nature and discovering lesser-known places. Françoise was a person of raw authenticity who had a wicked sense of humour and a deep ability to listen.

Besides her parents, she is survived by one sister, Madeleine Fidler (Logan) of Calgary, AB; one nephew, Isaac; her paternal grandmother, Rita Surette of Dieppe; as well as her aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Azor and Dolores (Nowlan) Cormier, and her paternal grandfather, Raymond Surette.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (506-858-1900) on Friday November 10 from 2 to 4pm and from 7 to 9 pm. There will be no funeral service. In memory of Françoise, a contribution to the CHU Dumont Foundation (oncology) would be appreciated.
