VAN BUREN AND PORTSMOUTH, NH – Juliette Beaulieu, 97, passed away on the 15th of April surrounded by her family in Portsmouth N H. She was born in Drummond, NB, Canada, to Joseph V Ouellette and Memory (St. Amand) Ouellette, Dec. 24, 1916.
Juliette was married to Patrick Beaulieu, July 3, 1939 in Van Buren, and later became a US citizen. Van Buren is where they raised eight children and spent the rest of their married life. She had many talents: an avid card player, an accomplished bowler, the local seamstress, an excellent cook who did not use recipes. Walking with her husband was a daily routine. All and all, she was a social individual who loved to have people around her.
She is survived by her five daughters, Patricia DiCicco and husband, John of Exeter, NH; Jane Savard of Wells; Nancy Richard and husband, Jim of Fitchburg, MA; Del (Hilda) Pontremoli of Wells; Jan (Byrd) Nolet of Rochester, NH; two sons, Ronald Beaulieu and wife, Monique of Scarborough; Roger Beaulieu and wife, Jane Gagne of Yarmouth; 11 grandchildren, Michelle Beaulieu, Danielle Beaulieu, Samuel Beaulieu, Gabrielle Beaulieu, Michael DiCicco, Debbie DiCicco Moody, Julie Richard Hyvarinen, Joey Richard, Tamra Pontremoli, Greg Savard, Kevin Savard; and eight great-grandchildren. Juliette was predeceased by her husband, Patrick and her son, Richard. The family would like to express our gratitude for the care and devotion given to our mother during her stay at Clipper Harbor (Genesis) nursing home. Also, we extend a sincere thank you to the staff at Sol Amor Hospice who went above and beyond to provide our mother and our family the needed support during these difficult times.
