FAY IRENE ROBERTS-FRECHETTE Obituary
Roberts-Frechette, Fay Irene 83, of Westwood, MA passed peacefully July 23 at her High Rock Lane home after a brief illness. The center of her family's universe, her elegance and grace could light up a room, and her giving personality earned her numerous friends and fans. She spent several years as a resident of West Greenwich, RI, but returned to live in her beloved childhood home in Westwood. She was the only child of the late Richard G. and Constance (Everett) Roberts. She leaves 3 children: Christopher B. Frechette of Westwood, MA; Andrew R. (Rob) Frechette, of West Warwick, RI; and Sarah (Frechette) Garnsey of Providence. She also leaves 4 cherished grandchildren: Demetria Garnsey of Mt. Horeb, WI; Caitlin Greene of Palatka, FL; and Ian and William Frechette of West Warwick, RI. Her professional life spanned many decades and titles, but her passion was education, and she was always an English teacher at heart. She graduated from Westwood High School and held a BA from Emerson College and an MA from Boston University. She retired from the Boston law firm of Goodwin Procter & Hoar in 2000. Services will be private. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to charities that support awareness and research for breast cancer or macular degeneration.
