Fleurette L. Massicotte passed away peacefully on June 24th, 2021. She was born to Delphis and Rachel (La Pierre) Doyon on July 26th of 1933, on a remote farm on Rang 10 St. Ludger, Quebec, Canada. She was born prematurely, underweight, with little medical care, and a poor prognosis for survival. She was certainly no stranger to hardship. In her younger years, she was very fond of figure skating and did so at every chance. In her teens she was trained as a pediatric nurse in the city of Sherbrooke, before moving to Bristol in her twenties where she married her husband of 60 years, Marcel O. Massicotte. Later in life she became active with the Ladies of St. Anne and the St. Anne Church choir.
She worked numerous jobs, including The William Barret Co. and the second shift at O.Z. Gedney. She worked tirelessly to help meet the financial responsibility of raising and educating her four children, all while maintaining a clean and comfortable home. Two weeks before her passing, she reiterated that one of the best paths to heaven was through hard work. There was no dishonor in doing so.
Fleurette leaves her son Allen, his wife Lenna, their children Julia, Elizabeth, and Roland; her daughter Linda Black, her husband David, and their daughters Kelly Richardello, her husband RC, and Kristina; her son Jeffrey, his partner Diane, his children Emily and Jeffrey, and their mother Gina; her daughter Michelle Dinwoodie, her husband Paul, and their children Trevor John and Morgan. She leaves a sister Jacqueline and two special nieces, Donna Huntley and Andrea Massicott. She is predeceased by her sisters Emelienne, Lucienne, and Doris, and her brothers Fernand, Real, and Guy.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Ingraham Manor for the wonderful care given to her these past five months and her close and watchful neighbors. Family and friends are invited to go directly to St. Ann Church, The Parish of St. Francis de Sales Parish at 215 West Street, Bristol on Wednesday morning, June 30 at 10:30 to attend a Mass of Christian Burial.
