Julie Ann Paquin 12/23/2016

Julie Ann Paquin

March 15, 1962 - December 23, 2016

Buckinghamshire, UK – Julie Ann Paquin, 54, of Buckinghamshire and formerly of North Attleboro, MA died unexpectedly on Friday, December 23, 2016 at home.

Born March 15, 1962 in Attleboro, she was a daughter of Robert H. Paquin of Naples, Fl, formerly of North Attleboro and Lenore J. (Quinn) Paquin of North Attleboro.  She was a step-daughter of James E. Bound of North Attleboro and Marie Paquin of Naples, Fl.

Julie was granddaughter of the late Leonard J. and Margaret “Bernice” (Spillane) Quinn.

She is survived by her sisters: Jill E. (Paquin) Curreri of Beverly and Leslie Paquin of North Attleboro; two brothers-in-law: Joseph J. Curreri of Beverly and Joseph Fontneau of North Attleboro; a nephew Robert James Paquin Curreri; aunts Brenda Quinn of North Attleboro and Beverly Rush of North Attleboro and many more; cousins: Leonard Dieterle of Franklin, Elizabeth Dieterle of North Attleboro, Lisa Gallagher of North Attleboro and many, many more.

Julie’s also survived by her second ‘family’ in England:Moire, Stewart and Callum Plain, Lisa and Nana Caddogan, George, Gillian, Joe and Charlie Simmons, Betty and Bob McEvoy, Evelyn Godoy, Peter and Kathy Beckett, Chris and Liz Comley and Mark and Dee Debenham.

Julie was a 1984 graduate of Emmanuel College in Boston.  She was the president of her class and was the commencement speaker at her graduation ceremony.  She gave an eloquent and poignant speech which prompted many accolades.  In 1986 she was hired by the then Director of EDS, Ross Perot, as an account manager.  She had a very lengthy and illustrious career at EDS earning her many promotions and an eventual placement in the UK working alongside the UK Ministry of Defence.  This position earned her a lifetime stay in the UK where she continued to work for EDS which eventually was bought by Hewlett Packard Enterprises, where she worked as a business development director until the time of her death. Julie was renowned at her job and revered by many both professionally and personally. 

Julie loved life, she loved to laugh and tell stories.  She enjoyed music, concerts, going to the opera, eating at 5-star restaurants and traveling the world.  Her favorite vacation by far was at the ocean in Cornwall, UK. But mostly Julie loved being with her friends and family.

Services will be held privately with arrangements by Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of one’s choice.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I worked with Julie during my last two years with HP which was an experience in my working life which I will always remember and treasure. Julie was always firm, fair and compassionate with an incredible focus. She was an outstanding personality, one of those people that leaves an indelible memory. Such a sad loss.
#62 Ed Nolan 2017-01-09 18:44
My deepest condolences to the family. I missed Julie's growing-up years. Space and time prevented me from knowing her well. However she held within her the indomitable spirit of the Paquin family. My prayers and love are with you.
#61 Dori Grenert 2017-01-08 16:40
Dear Julie, I've only known you through the loving words of your sister Jill. I wish so much that I had the opportunity to get to know you! I know your sisters lives will always feel a strong missing link without you. You were obviously an amazing influence and inspiration in many wonderful ways. I pray that time can eventually ease your families pain and their faith to stay as strong as it is as they grieve and miss you every day. I hope to meet you one day in Heaven! XO

To Julie's family and friends
I am so sorry for your great loss. I only recently started working with Julie as one of her customers at the DWP but I quickly appreciated her frankness, integrity and ability to resolve difficult issues. I will miss her.

May God be with you at this difficult time.

I'm so sorry to hear of Julie's passing and my thoughts are with her family at this very sad time. I have worked off and on with her for several years. Colleagues and clients have a lot of respect for Julie and she was always larger than life, feisty and determined but very funny and caring. A truly unique and memorable lady.
Julie, you will be truly missed. Rest in Peace.
#57 Bob and Pat Maher 2017-01-04 16:14

#56 Stuart Monro 2017-01-04 14:11
I have only just heard of this sad and shocking news. I knew Julie for the past year working together on the HPE & Microsoft partnership into DWP. She was always professional, driven and a pleasure to work with. My thoughts and condolences go out to her family and close friends. Stuart

I am truly saddened by the loss of Julie. Julie was an extraordinary leader, role model, and friend in HPE who was strong, tough,yet had an incredible sense of humor. She always went out of her way to help you. Our thoughts and prayers are with Julie's family and friends. Julie - we miss you!
#53 Kathy Garcia 2017-01-04 11:28
Very saddened by the loss of this remarkable leader. My thoughts and prayers are with Julie's family and friends. She was smart, strong, tough, funny and very genuine. She was a very dedicated committed leader to HPE and will be missed by all of us. Our hearts are broken - we will miss you dearly.
#52 Maggi Hopkins 2017-01-04 09:33
Jules was just that; an absolute jewel in every sense the word can express. Honey I bawled my eyes out when I found out you were gone. You were both colleague and friend and we laughed brooded and talked through many a long day of whatever work and life threw at us.
To you I say God always has space for another angel keep it warm for me babes
To your family I say it was a honor to be touched by Julie and be allowed to be a part of her life and share the odd birthday cake! and from up here in Scotland I throw my arms wide around you and send you all big hugs. No words can express what you must feel. xxx
#51 Nathan Smith 2017-01-04 08:34
Devastating, sad, sad news.

I have never met anyone quite like the unique Julie Paquin. I had only been in HPE for 4 months by the time she sent me a birthday gift and had knitted (very complicated!) blankets for my newborn twins. Feisty, fiery, direct, entrepreneurial and expert at taking calculated risks, Julie was and is one in a million. She offered ideas and solutions like no one else - with no barriers. She thought as big as her personality.

Sincere and heartfelt condolences x
#50 Lisa Taleghani Bonai 2017-01-04 01:40
Julie you were one of my best friends we met in college in the hallway and you asked for directions to an office, I was looking for my advisor and you saw that I was pretty stressed so we went and had a cup of coffee ( me soda). From that day on you were there for me and I hope me for you. We became family, you were so good to my family and all appreciate (d) and love (d) you.

No matter the distance or length of time in between visits and phone calls we picked up where we left off. You were a very loyal friend and were not afraid to let a friend know what you thought which I very much valued.

You had a heart of gold and provide unconditional support to all of those close to you! I will miss you my friend, but know you will always be with all of us.

To the Paquin family, I am so sorry the loss of your daughter, sister, niece and cousin- she loved you all and you loved her. She will always be in our hearts.

Love, Lisa

Dear Julie

We knew each other for over twenty years and in all that time I can’t think of a single occasion when you failed to speak your mind … to call it like it is. You would always go the extra mile for your customer, or your team when they deserved it (and you’d also cross a busy street to tell someone they were being stupid … when they deserved it ... me included). How wonderful! Time and time again you saved my bacon. I gave you the hardest jobs because only you could do them. I don’t think anyone better exemplified the spirit our company once had. You were a giver – to your family, to your friends, to your colleagues, to your clients. And it is so sad you were not given more years in return. So sad

condolences to family and friends , Julie will be missed .
#47 Kathleen Keaney 2017-01-03 16:13
Lenore and Family,
Was so sorry to read of the passing of your daughter/sister Julie. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad and difficult time.
#46 Vicki Mabon 2017-01-03 15:14

You challenged us all to do our best. Your passion and commitment was an example for us all. We will miss you.

#45 Joanne Guy 2017-01-03 13:17
I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Julie's sudden passing shortly before Christmas. I worked with Julie and was lucky enough to see the compassionate and caring side as well as the driven and sometimes feisty side. When my son had a few issues with anxiety a few years ago I'll never forget her support and kindness. Her absolute conviction that he would come out of the other side helped me no end.

My thoughts are with all her family and friends at this difficult time
#44 David P Oldham 2017-01-03 10:26
Julie was a work colleague but also a very dear friend, she was someone who was always there for us.

Her passion for people and life was second to none.

Julie will be remembered with great fondness, her humor, her stories but most of all the compassion she showed so many of us in times of need.

Her family can be proud and take some comfort in the fact Julie made such a positive impact on so many of our lives.

She will be dearly missed.
#43 Jerry Smith 2017-01-03 10:02
Thank you Julie for being my mentor at EDS and for being so giving with your time and attention - you helped me way more than you ever realised. Your passing so early is a great sadness but I will always look back at the time when I was your 'bag carrier' with genuine fondness and smiles. Thank you, Jer.
#42 Kishore Chekuri 2017-01-03 09:28
I am deeply saddened to hear the tragic passing of Julie Paquin. I had the privilege of working for her over the last few years. I really valued her leadership, relentless commitment and passion to drive things through. She will be sadly missed.

May her soul rest in peace. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to you, her family and friends here in the UK, USA and rest of the world.
#41 James Perry 2017-01-03 09:21
Julie, you were the first Account Executive I worked for at HP and really set me off on the right track with your strong guidance and council. Your passion for customers was inspirational and I loved your sense of fun and infectious laugh. You will be greatly missed, a big loss for all those your life touched.
#40 Pradip Varier 2017-01-03 08:50
I am still in shock! Though I have not spoken or met Julie for a year now, I have extreme fond memories of working with her for two years! Her "never give up" spirit at work was remarkable and her singular focus on meeting the customer's need helped us win some good business! Will miss you at work!
#39 margaret rawbone 2017-01-03 08:14
Very sad to hear this news. Julie was a great mentor and fun person who often told loving stories of her family. She will be missed by many.

we are so sorry to hear about your sister and daughter. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and deepest sympathy is with you. Love Nancy ,Mario Jonathan and Caitlin
#35 Liz Fairfield 2017-01-02 13:21
Julie, you deserved a long and happy retirement doing the things you love.

We worked together for several years and I saw that your feistiness hid a profound kindness in big and small ways, which not everyone saw. You had a personalised apron made for the young daughter of a colleague for her birthday and I remember you taking some friends to Cornwall to help them recover from the loss of a loved one. You baked amazing cakes for the office when one of our team did a sponsored walk dressed as a nun(!).....and fixed some big problems for me, I hope I managed to get across what a difference you made.
My thoughts and prayers are with your friends and family.
#34 Paula Fidge 2017-01-02 08:18
Sincere condolences to you all. I have very fond memories of Julie from the early days working in the EDS Defence business: her friendliness, professionalism , kindness and sense of fun endeared her to all her colleagues.

A remarkable lady.

I enjoyed working with her at EDS and HP

Julie will be sadly missed
#31 Stuart Bladen 2016-12-31 19:03
Truly saddened to hear of Julie's passing and I wanted to send my thoughts and sympathies to you, her family. Julie was a valued and respected colleague who inspired and connected with those around her. Our clients loved her and she demanded - and received - the best from those who worked with her. And she did it all with unfailing good humour and practicality. Julie was one of those people who truly brightened and enhanced the working day for those she worked with. So sorry, Stuart.
#30 Carol Mador 2016-12-31 17:31
Carol Mador Dear Family of Julie our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. We remember Julie as a sweet fun loving girl when she was in our sons and daughter in law's wedding back in 1981.
#29 Anil Walia 2016-12-31 15:43
Julie, we spoke only on Dec. 13th at length and all seemed well and agreed to meet up soon. Words cannot describe how shocked I am. I'm stunned.

We worked together so closely for nearly three years, talking every day, sometimes several times a day. We were a fiery partnership but achieved so much professional success. You were a brilliant and inspirational leader and achieved so many amazing things. I've never known anyone with so much passion, tenacity and "never say die" attitude.

You were a friend to me in tough times and I just wish I could have been there for you to help in some way.

You will always be in my thoughts and my prayers are with your family at this time of loss.
#28 Dee Debenham 2016-12-31 09:45
Julie was such a strong and wonderful person we will miss her so much, our deepest sympathy and thoughts go out to all Julie's family and friends at this sad time. Rest in peace Julie we will miss you.

#24 Pam Riley Miklavcic 2016-12-30 18:13
Julie and I were dear friends in high school but then went our separate ways to different adventures and continents. I never doubted that we would reconnect and I tried several times to find her through Facebook etc. In fact, I was thinking of her just last week and that it was time to double my efforts at finding her. This is a sad loss indeed and I am so sorry for all who are undoubtedly grieving terribly. My deepest condolences to all of Julie's family, particularly her parents and sisters. Most sincerely, Pam Riley Miklavcic

Bob, Lenore, Leslie, Jill and Family
I am so sorry for the passing of Julie, If there is anything I could say to make you feel a bit better, It is that Julie is now with God and in a good place looking over the family.
Julie is now again with her aunt, Jacqueline Ann Paquin (Jackie Franey), cousin Scott and many others that left us all too early. They must be having a wonderful reunion and talking to each other about their happier days with the family.
They will now celebrate their birthdays together on March 15th of every year.
Julie and Jackie's soul will live on earth with all of us. We will hold their memories in our hearts for ever.
God Bless our family.

Although we only met each other several times in our lives, the distance between us did not change the fact that we're cousins. Just a couple short months ago we talked on the phone when I went back to Mass. I will never be able to Stand on a Corner in Winslow Arizona again without thinking of you cousin. God Speed Julie.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the rest of our family in this time of loss.
