BARRE - With wonderful memories and deep sadness we announce the passing of Agnes June (Chaloux) Dumont on Nov. 23, 2012. Born in Barre on Feb. 2, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Armand and Irene (McLaughlin) Chaloux.
She was predeceased in 2007 by Eugene, her beloved husband of 56 years.
She loved laughter, the sun, the wind and the beach. Her passions included music and reading, but family was always her first love. She leaves a large family and her wish for them is this: May the winds of love blow softly and whisper for you to hear that I will always love you. To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die.
Agnes is survived by her loving sons and daughters Laurene Sechtman and her husband, Scott, of West Hartford, Conn., Lorna Dumont, of East Hartford, Conn., Linda Hunt and her husband, Frank, of Windsor, Conn., Lisa Dumont and Christopher, of Manchester, Conn., Michael Dumont and his wife, Diane, of Hartford, Conn., Martin Dumont and his wife, Valerie, of Newington, Conn., Mark Dumont, of West Hartford, Conn., and Matthew Dumont and his wife, Melissa, of Manchester, Conn.; her 13 grandchildren, Robert, Carra, Irene, Ryan, Corey, Christopher, Steven, Brittany, James, Michelle, Katie, Emma and Ben; her great-granddaughters, Jocelyn Polley and Madeline Hunt; her sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Florence Carroll and her husband, Phil, of Rutland, Aline LaPerle and her husband, Adrian, of Barre, and Leopold Dumond, of South Korea; and several nephews and nieces.
