RUMFORD — Marguerite R. Ouellette, 93, a cancer survivor and resident of the Rumford Community Home and formerly of Congress Street, passed away Tuesday, June 23, at the Rumford Hospital with family at her side.

She was born in St. George de Windsor, P.Q., Canada, July 9, 1915, a daughter of George and Lauza (Castonguay) Robert. She was educated in Canada schools and has been a resident of this community since 1947.

On May 3, 1947, she married Edmond O. Ouellette, who predeceased her in March 1979. She worked 30 years at Diamond National in Dixfield, spending several of those years as a union representative, always looking out for the best interest of her fellow workers, until her retirement. She was a longtime member of The Parish of the Holy Savior and was truly a lady of deep religious faith.

Although she had none of her own, she always loved children and for many years, she and her husband anonomously helped many local children and others in many different ways. Whether it was food, clothing, financially or otherwise, she sacrificed so that she could help others. She was a very giving person, as an angel on earth. In her younger years, she enjoyed swimming and into her final days enjoyed playing cards including her favorite game Canasta. She was a special lady to her nieces, nephews and friends and will be sadly missed.
She leaves a niece, Jeanne M.L. Brzezinski of Port Orange, Fla.; her closest and very best friend, Irene Thibodeau of Mexico; two grandnephews, Gerry Brzezinski and wife, Carla, and their son, Aaron, of Rochester, N.Y., and Leonard Brzezinski of San Francisco, Calif.; grandniece, Carole Stanton and husband, Kerry, and their daughter, Rachel, of Tampa, Fla.; a sister-in-law, Rita Beaulieu of Rumford; and many nieces and nephews in Canada and Massachusetts.
