Claudia Marie Chiasson


It is with broken hearts that the family of Claudia Marie Chiasson, loving wife of Fernand Chiasson, announce her passing on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born on July 14, 1942 in Tracadie, NB, she was the daughter of the late Melanie (Savoie) and Sebastian Saulnier.


Claudia loved to knit, quilt and bake (she loved her sweets!) and couldn’t have enough butter or salt! She also enjoyed doing puzzles and board games with Scrabble being her favourite. She was an avid reader (particularly Harlequin romance!) and always took time to watch Hallmark movies. Claudia enjoyed sports and was a big fan of the Toronto Blue Jays and Montreal Canadiens. When her boys were younger, she never missed any of their ballgames. She was also a very giving person, donating to various charities, volunteering with St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary’s gift shop, and was a  40-year member (and past President) of St. Peter’s CWL.  Most of all, Claudia loved being around her family, especially spending time with her precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed by her family and many friends.   


Claudia will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 62 years, Fernand; sons, Michael, Joel (Tracey) and Denny (Mary); daughters, Susan and Bernice (Bob); brother, Ronald (Laudia) and sister, Jeannine (Benoit); grandchildren, Alison (Nathan), Jacqueline (Adam), Joshua (Sophie), Matthew (Danika), Meaghan, Melissa (Sarah), Jonathan, Abigail (Jacob), Alex, Emelia and Parker; great-grandchildren, Jeremiah, Addison, Violet, Myla, Thomas, Alexia, Charlotte and Eloise; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.


In addition to her parents, Claudia was predeceased by her sister, Odessia.


The family wishes to thank the staff and nurses at the Saint John Regional Hospital, 5 C North, and Dr. Luan Le for their care and compassion.


Arrangements are under the care and direction of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John, NB (634-7424) with visitation on Monday, November 21, 2022, from 2-4 and 6-8 PM. A Funeral Liturgy will be held on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at 10:00 AM from Brenan’s Chapel. Interment will take place in St. Simon, NB at a later date.
