Constance “Connie” Beauchamp

Beauchamp-The Last Rose of Summer has passed… Constance Suzanne Beauchamp (nee Zink) on Saturday, November 18, 2017, surrounded by her family at Bluewater Health, Sarnia. Mom has finally gone to be with the one and only love of her life Marcel (1989).Youngest and last surviving daughter of Great Lakes freighter Captain Bernard Zink and Hazel Mae Parr, she was born September 21, 1936. Connie was raised and rooted on the banks of the St Clair River, and never lived more than‎ a mile from the family homestead. In spite of that, she was worldly, wise, adventurous and well-travelled. Some of that travel was with the Corunna Festival Chorale, a singing group that was the source of great joy and lasting friendships. After having five children, mom returned to school and then entered the workforce as a school secretary, a job she truly enjoyed. Lifelong St. Joseph’s Corunna parishioner, CWL and church choir member. For years, Connie also saw to it that the church linens always looked great (lots of starch).Always willing to lend a hand, mom volunteered with the Salvation Army for several years and generously supported many other charities. Her presence and wise guidance will be deeply missed. Dearest mom to Paul (Lisa Walton), Peter, Stephen, John, Maria. Loving Grandmother to Tara, Karli Lamourea (Adam), Kayla Fielder, Marcel, Molly and Grace and great grandmother of Violet and Farrah Lamourea, and Maeve Kelly.
