Born in Montreal, the daughter of Alexandre Lacoste and Marie-Louise Globensky, she married Louis de Gaspé-Beaubien, son of Hon. Louis Beaubien, in 1899. Her maternal great-grandfather was born in Berlin to a family of Polish origin.[1]

In 1934 Lacoste-Beaubien was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire "for services for sick and crippled children; in founding and extending the St. Justine Hospital".[2]
