Stacey Mildred Anne Godin, a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, nanny and friend, died peacefully with her husband Ken, daughters Ashley and Megan, son George, son-in-law Essa and grandson Salbastion by her side on September 8, 2023 at 11:47 p.m. at the age of 50, after a long battle of cancer.
Stacey is survived by her husband Ken Godin, her children, Ashley Niittynen (Essa), George Godin, Megan Godin (Brayden), grandson Salbastion, brother Jeffery Parsons and many relatives.
Stacey was born in Toronto, Ontario on November 6, 1972 to Madeline Primeau and Ken Geary. She never got to meet her biological father, but her mother met Leo and they had Jeff. Leo was a father figure for many years until Madeline met and married Kevin Primeau, her step father, who also raised her as his own. She was so gifted to have so many people in her life.
In the spring of 1990 she met her love, Ken. Ken knew it was meant to be, as during their first kiss she fainted. They dated for 6 years, then got married on January 6, 1996. A short 6 months later, in June of 1996, they had their first daughter Ashley. Love was in the air and in November of 1997 they had their second child George. There was a break and then, a miracle baby came in August 2003, child number 3, Megan. The perfect family of 5, happy and complete. A wonderful life together of almost 35 years.
Stacey was all about her family and was an amazing, beautiful, devoted, loving mother. She raised all 3 of her children from birth to adulthood with Ken of course by her side. She taught them everything she knew. The world's best mother. She sacrificed and did anything and everything she could for her children and husband. Stacey was a true fighter. Strong until her very last breath. Cherished and loved by so many people who had the privilege of getting to know such an incredible person.
A Funeral Service for Stacey will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, September 16,2023 at the Calvary Lutheran Church (2820 Donald Street East). Pastor Ed and Pastor Brian will officiate.
A go fund me page has been set up by Ken's fabulous twin sister on behalf of the family in their time of grief.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Simpler Times Cremation Centre, 575 Central Avenue, Thunder Bay.
