Beaudin, Rita

Bay City, Michigan


          Our beloved mother and grandmother passed away peacefully in the late hours of Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at Bay Shores Nursing Care Center in Bay City, Michigan. Age 97 years. Rita was born on November 16, 1921 in Bay City to the late Max and Stella (Korek) Bujarski. On May 10, 1947 Rita married the love of her life, Floyd Beaudin, and he preceded her in death on March 23, 1985. Rita spent her whole life in Bay City, and was very active with her church. She was a member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish – St. Hyacinth Church for her entire life. She was a member of the Rosary Society, Alter Society, St. Hyacinth Senior Citizens Club, the League of Catholic Men and Women, and the St. Hyacinth Breakfast Committee Group 2. Rita had many joys in life including: playing bingo, swimming, reading, knitting, crocheting, and taking gambling trips with her friends from church. Rita also followed politics very closely; she enjoyed watching CNN daily. She will be missed dearly by her family and friends.


          Left to cherish her memories are her four children, Paulette (Lee) Howell of Waterford, Michigan, William (Cathleen) Beaudin of Hammondsport, New York, Christopher Beaudin of Dundee, New York, and Edward Beaudin of Bay City, Michigan; two grandsons, James Howell of Troy, Michigan and Joseph Howell of Waterford, Michigan; and numerous nieces and nephews. After a period of separation, Rita is finally reunited with her husband, Floyd Beaudin; parents, Max and Stella (Korek) Bujarski; and three sisters, Hyacinth (Wallace) Ross, Eleanor (Floyd) Rozewski, and Maxine (Victor) Jaskiewicz.
