Lucille Paquin 08/24/2018


Lucille Paquin died on August 24, 2018 at the age of 94 at Madonna Manor.

She was born on March 7, 1924 to Phillippe and Eva (Deroy) Rainville. She was the wife of the late Maurice Paquin.

She is survived by her daughter Dianne Paquin Landry and her husband Joseph, grandson Matthew Paquin Landry and his wife Alexis, as well as her great-grandchildren James and Angela Landry. She is also survived by her siblings Jeannie Strong, Lorraine Charette, Helen Slaney, Estelle Hemmingson, Leo and Charles Rainville.

She was pre-deceased by her siblings Corrine Boiannelli, Annette Ringuette, Florence, Claire, Romeo, Edmund and Donald Rainville.

Lucille was a lifelong member of Sacred Heart Parish. She was a Eucharistic Minister, Usher and a member of the Saint Anne's Solidarity.

Lucille worked for various jewelry manufacturers including Evans Case and Marissa Barrows. In addition, she was a longtime volunteer for the North Attleboro Council on Aging.

Nothing pleased her more than having time to read and sew. She always wanted to be busy. Whether it was walking (she power-walked before that was common!) or deboning a turkey. Whatever it was, it had to be done to the best of her ability, and quickly.

Family was important to her too. She reveled in each visit with Matt, Alexis and her two great grandchildren. Although her hearing and eyesight waned, she was always attentive when family was around. She lived for those times.

Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, August 29 from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. at Sperry and McHoul Funeral home, 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held immediately following, at 10:30 AM at Sacred Heart Church, 58 Church Street, North Attleboro. Burial will follow at St. Stephens Cemetery, Attleboro, where she will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband, Maurice.

Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Madonna Manor who provided God’s loving comfort to Mom. Additionally, many thanks to the Community VNA for their hospice care and support.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Madonna Manor's Activity fund or the Community VNA of Attleboro.
