PLAINVILLE - Anilda (Beaulieu) Ouellette, 79, of Plainville, passed away on Saturday, July 19, 2014, at Connecticut Hospice in Branford. She was the beloved wife of Maurice Ouellette, with whom she shared 59 years of marriage.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Fort Kent, Maine on July 15, 1935, she was one of 13 children to the late Clovis and Azilda (Pelletier) Beaulieu. She moved to Connecticut as a teenager, and settled in Plainville shortly after her marriage to Maurice in 1955, where they raised their two children. Anilda had a longtime career as a bookkeeper for St. Jeans Welding in East Hartford, and retired from Johnson & Johnson in Southington at the age of 65. She was a woman of strong faith and longtime member of Our Lady of Mercy Church, and lived a life of generosity towards others, supporting various organizations. Anilda enjoyed cooking, baking and tending to her flower gardens, and was talented at crocheting, especially blankets for her family and friends. A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, she will be greatly missed, leaving her adored family with many cherished memories.
In addition to her husband, she leaves her children, Jeffrey and Linda; her grandsons, Zachary and Ryan; her brothers, Roger, Richard, and Gordon Beaulieu; her sisters, Nora Guerrette, Theresa Boains, Gloria Ouellette and Iva; her sister-in-law, Bernice Dumais; and many nieces and nephews.
