Obituary for Marie Jeanne Desrosiers
Marie Jeanne Desrosiers, 100, widow of Leo J. Desrosiers, died Saturday, October 28, 2006 in Haven Health Center. She was born July 11, 1906 in Notre Dame du Conseil, P.Q. Canada, daughter of Francois and Marie (Pelletier) Cote. Marie became a US naturalized citizen in 1942. She first worked at the American Thread Co. and then at the Electro Motive Co. in Willimantic until her retirement in 1968. Marie had seven sisters and five brothers who had all predeceased her; she was also predeceased by her eldest son, Lucien Desrosiers Sr. Her survivors include three sons and four daughters-in-law, Ronald and Gerry Desrosiers of Windham, Lionel and Lillian Desrosiers of Mansfield Center, Dennis and Ann Desrosiers of Windsor and Dorothy Desrosiers of Columbia, CT. She also leaves twelve grandchildren, sixteen great- grandchildren, thirteen great-great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Her family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at Windham Hospital for caring for Marie during her recent illness. We are also thankful and would like to acknowledge all the healthcare professionals and support staffs at Haven Health Center whose contributions helped in extending Marie’s life. She led a quiet life in generally good health for the past 20 years which culminated in a quiet but very proud celebration when she turned 100 this past July. She certainly enjoyed her cake on that occasion!       Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated Thursday, November 2, 2006 at 10 a.m. in St. Mary’s Church in Willimantic. Burial will follow in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, on Club Rd. in Windham. Her family will receive relatives and friends on Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. and again on Thursday from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. at the Bacon Funeral Home, 71 Prospect St., Willimantic.  The family requests memorial donations in Marie’s name sent to Windham Hospital, 112 Mansfield Ave., Willimantic, CT. 06226.
