Binette, Marietta  
CANDIA - Marietta Binette, 92, a long-time resident of Candia, N.H., died May 24, 2016, at her home after a period of declining health. Upon the death of her husband, Bertrand, she succeeded him as the oldest resident of Candia and the holder of the Boston Post Cane. Marietta was born in Berlin, N.H., the fifth of eight children born to Aristides and Apollina (Lambert) LeBorgne. When she was a child, her family moved to Westbrook, Maine, where she graduated from Westbrook High School in 1941. On June 13, 1946, she and Bertrand were the first couple to be married in the newly constructed St. Hyacinth Church. They lived in a renovated chicken coop while building a house in Gorham. In 1953, they moved to Manchester, N.H., where they lived until moving to Candia in 1961. The fieldstone house with the large red barn on High Street was their home from that day on. Living with three children on a chicken farm in a small town changed Marietta's life. She cared for baby chickens, learned to make jams, preserve vegetables and fruits from the garden, and became fully involved in the community. She served on the Moore School PTA as member and president. She actively supported her family in their activities, from music lessons to horse shows, to serving as a 4-H sewing instructor. She later worked as a bookkeeper for Genest Ford, Ferretti Brothers, and Associated Grocers. After retirement, she served for many years as a volunteer with the Raymond Community Food Pantry. She was a parishioner at St. Paul's Catholic Church, serving as a Sunday School teacher and as a volunteer cook and organizer for senior luncheons. She was the beloved Memere to her nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. Each one was special to her and she always took time to read to them and teach them how to play games and cards. They all knew exactly where she kept special treats for them! Marietta was predeceased by Bertrand Binette, her husband of sixty-nine years. She is survived by her daughters, Diane Chamberlain of Hooksett, Camilla Barrantes (Denny) of Scarborough, Maine, and Paula Chouinard (Michael) of Candia; brother, Roger LeBorgne of Westbrook, Maine; and sister, Lauretta L'Heureux, of Sanford, Maine.

A graduate of Moultonborough Academy, Annie was a motivational speaker and self-advocate who traveled the country spreading her positive message of living on the "UP" side of Down Syndrome.

True to her old adage, Annie leaves behind more friends than there are stars in the sky. In 1997 Annie started the "Annie Forts UP Syndrome Fund" with the support of the Moultonborough Lion's Club. Dedicated to opening windows of opportunity through education and experience, to date Annie's fund has raised over $325,000 towards her goal of $1M, and more importantly, the fund has helped provide enrichment opportunities to persons with Down Syndrome and to help support individuals interested in pursuing a career in Special Education.
