(Hooper) Laurin, age 67, of Tyngsboro, formerly of Lowell, passed away peacefully on Tuesday morning, December 4th, 2012 at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House in Haverhill, following a brief battle with cancer. For fifteen years, she was the beloved companion of Edward French.
Sheila was born in Lowell on April 25, 1945, the daughter of Dorothy E. (Trouville) (Hooper) Bergeron, of Bellingham, MA and the late Irving D. Hooper. She was the step-daughter of the late Wilfred Bergeron.
