MADSEN, Belle Noreen
(July 4th, 1914-March 8th, 2008)
It is with great sadness that Belle MADSEN in her 94th year passed away suddenly at Southlake Regional Health facility in Newmarket, Ontario, on Saturday morning, March 8th. Belle MADSEN departed from this life surrounded by her loving and devoted family, daughters Marcia (Jim PAERG,) Stephanie (John BEAUPRE) and sons Malcom and Rocky (Bridgitte LINNANE.) Grandmother of Steven BOWLES, Jamie BEAUPRE, Luke BEAUPRE, Brooke MULLINS and Adam MADSEN. Belle is also a great-grandmother to Robert BOWLES and Lone MULLINS. Belle was a beautiful, elegant, strong and vibrant self-reliant woman. Among other duties of charity work was also the past President of the Mining Woman's Association. Wife of the late Marius K. MADSEN president and owner of Madsen Red Lake Gold Mines, Superior Sand and Gravel, Honey Pot Ski Resort and the Casa Marie Hotel in Jamaica. Belle MADSEN was a consistent source of energy and whether she was involved in running one of the many companies owned by our late father or hosting a birthday party she was always on the go. Toward the end of her life, Belle became passionate about playing card games. It was truly remarkable how sharp her mind was right until the end. Belle also leaves behind two very dear sisters: Jane SWAIN and Jo PORTER who will miss her persistent mothering as she was the older sister and always let them know that. As we say farewell to this generous, loving and energetic woman we are reminded of just how many people's lives she has touched. She was a matriarch and definitely stood out in a crowd and as everyone she knew would tell you, she never had a problem speaking her mind, you could never go wrong having her in your corner. Although it has been so hard and sad to have had to see her leave this life, she is at peace at last. Reconnecting with our father and brother, Dana who died much too young. We miss you so much mom and know we speak for so many others that have been touched by your entrance into their lives. One day we will all see you again and until then keep playing cards& you owe us a game! Friends may call at the Jerrett Funeral Home, 6191 Yonge St. (2 lights south of Steeles). A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 1 p.m. in our chapel. Cremation to follow.
