Madeline Seyuin

Madeline Seyuin, a beacon of faith and generosity, passed away peacefully on March 26, 2024, at the age of 96 in Standish, Michigan. Born on June 2, 1927, in Beaver Township, Michigan to the late Ned & Bessie (Wolaszk) Jarczynski, Madeline’s life was a testament to her gentle spirit and unwavering commitment to her family and community. Madeline’s journey began when she married the love of her life, Louis Seyuin, on October 13, 1945, at St. Anne’s Catholic Church. Their union was blessed with love, laughter, and dedication, enduring for 63 years until Louis’s passing on May 22, 2008.

Together, they raised a family that included their children Sharon (and her friend Robert Borowy), Dennis, Kenneth (Cheryl), and Nancy (John) Bergeron. Madeline’s legacy continued to flourish through her seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren, each of whom she cherished deeply. She was predeceased by her husband, her parents, a great-granddaughter Ashley Yealey, and her nine siblings.

A talented cake decorator, Madeline spent 15 years at H&H Bakery, where her artistic skills brought joy to countless celebrations. Even outside of work, her kitchen was often filled with the sweet aroma of her creations. Alongside her husband, Dude, she also contributed to the family farm, balancing the demands of agriculture with the nurturing of her growing family.

Madeline’s interests and involvements were a reflection of her character. She was an active member of the Altar Society, the Daughter’s of Isabella-Standish, and the Red Hat Society. Her hobbies included fishing and sewing, activities that she not only enjoyed but also used as opportunities to connect with others and pass on her skills.

Known as the matriarch of her family, Madeline instilled her religious values in her loved ones, guiding them with a gentle hand and a steadfast heart. Her faith was the cornerstone of her existence, and she lived every day embodying the principles she held dear. Her generosity knew no bounds, and Madeline’s impact on the lives she touched was profound. She gave selflessly, not only to her family but also to her friends and community, always ready to lend a helping hand or a listening ear. Madeline Seyuin will be remembered as a faith-filled, generous, and gentle woman whose influence will continue to be felt by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Her memory will be cherished, her lessons carried forward, and her spirit celebrated by those who follow in her footsteps. Madeline’s life was a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of compassion and resilience. As we honor her memory, we are reminded of the preciousness of each day and the impact one person can have on the world. She was truly a gift to all who knew her, and her presence will be deeply missed.

Funeral Mass was celebrated on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at 11:00 am from Holy Trinity Parish with Rev. Fr. Patrick O’Connor presiding with burial in St. Anne Cemetery. Friends visited at the Lee-Ramsay Funeral Home on Monday, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. On Tuesday, Madeline lay in state at the church from 10:00 am until the time of mass.
