Peter Beaulieu, age 73, of Bemidji, MN, died Thursday, January 24, 2013 at the Mahnomen Health Center Nursing Home.
Peter James Beaulieu was born July 8, 1939 in Red Lake, MN, the son of Peter Jacob and Cecelia (Martin) Beaulieu. Growing up, much of Peter’s time was spent in the Minneapolis, MN, area. He also spent some time in Chicago, IL and later in Northwest Minnesota. In the early 1990’s Peter moved to Bemidji, MN, to make his home until very recently when he moved to Mahnomen to be near his daughter.
Peter was a simple man that didn’t long for much. He enjoyed going for long walks, reading, watching movies and keeping up with current events. He enjoyed eating at Maid Rite Café and especially liked walleye, potato salad or liver and onions. Peter had many friends in the Minneapolis and Bemidji areas and tried to spend quality time with his daughter, Marie, when he could.
Peter is survived by his daughter, Marie Stone, Mahnomen; sister, Mary Rose Brunette, Red Lake, MN; four grandchildren: Lynette, Christopher, Justine and Lorin II; and one great-grandchild, Javery VanPelt.
He was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers: Joseph, Roman, Arnold and Walter; and four sisters: Margaret McKenzie, Alice Mason, Agnes Strong and Joyce Beaulieu, and great grandchild, Valencia VanPelt.
Funeral Services were held on Tuesday, January 29, 2013.
