Obituary for Shirley Quinn Lafontaine

Shirley Quinn Lafontaine, 75, of Lebanon, CT, left this world on August 15, 2009 after a long illness. She leaves her husband of 55 years, Jean B. Lafontaine, her four children, Gregg J. Lafontaine and wife Linda of Lebanon, Mark A. Lafontaine and wife Carla of Willimantic, Donna E. Lafontaine and dear friend Lynn Littlefield of Lebanon, and Kimberly L. McAdam and husband John of Chaplin. She also leaves seven grandchildren: Adam Lafontaine of Wallingford, Ethan Lafontaine of Lebanon, Emilie, Alexander and David Lafontaine all of Willimantic, Quinn and Hannah McAdam of Chaplin, and many other beloved family members and friends. She was previously deceased by her parents, Andrew and Mathilda Quinn, a brother Robert Quinn and a granddaughter, Lauren Lafontaine.
 
Shirley was a life long communicant of Saint Mary Church in Willimantic where she dedicated herself to service through her work with Pre Cana (Marriage Preparation), Family Life Committee, Eucharistic Ministry and Captain of St. Mary’s Foot Print Committee (St. Mary’s Relay for Life Team). She was also active in  the Lebanon Junior/Senior Group, participating in many trips, weekly card and bingo groups. Shirley especially enjoyed her summers at Alexander’s Lake in Dayville.
 
Shirley was also a life long lover of antiques and ran the Butter Churn Antique Store in Lebanon CT in the 70’s and 80’s. She was retired from the Uconn Coop where she served as a clerk in the financial office. She always enjoyed her interaction with students and colleagues. Shirley leaves many friends, some that she had know since kindergarten, and some she met days before passing. She will be greatly missed by all.
 
Calling hours will be held at Bacon Funeral Home, Prospect St., Willimantic, from 6pm to 8 pm Tuesday, August 18, 2009. A celebration of her life will commence at 11am Wednesday, with a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Mary Church, Valley St. Willimantic, followed by internment in St. Joseph Cemetery, Club Road, Windham. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Mary Church Repair Fund or to a charity of your choice. Shirley’s family would like thank the staff of Douglas Manor, Windham Hospital and the VNA East Hospice team for the loving care they offered her until her passing.
