Obituary

Florence T. Bilodeau, 95, of Manchester passed away on Wednesday evening, August 7, 2019 at Catholic Medical Center after a period of declining health.

She was born in Manchester on November 27, 1923 to the late Ulric Soucy of Worcester, MA and Aldea (Roberge) Soucy of Chartierville, Quebec, Canada. She was raised and educated in both Manchester and Worcester MA.

She was a homemaker for much of her life, but had several jobs including working as a spinner in the Chicopee Mills in Manchester.

Florence married her husband, Roland J. Bilodeau of Manchester on April 22, 1946. Together they had four children, Claudette L. Dionne and her husband, Donald, Suzanne L. Peters and her late husband, Clyde, Linda F. Davie and her husband, Robert, and Monique C. Drouin. She was affectionately known as Memere DoDo to her 12 grand children, 24 great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren and basically anyone who knew her.

She shared a love of square dancing with her husband and the Queen City Promenaders. She also enjoyed candlepin bowling and playing cribbage. She was famous for her "little pizzas", love for hard "peeps" and always hiding full-sized candy bars in a special draw for the grandkids. She lived independently all of her life. She was a treasure.

Along with her parents and husband, she was predeceased by daughters, Linda and Claudette and her brother, Lucien U. Soucy.

The family would like to recognize and thank the staff at the Concord Regional Visiting Nurse Association and CMC Hospital staff on level E for their tenderness and compassion in her final hours.

A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Parish of the Transfiguration, 305 Kelley St., Manchester. Committal prayers followed at Mt. Calvary Cemetery, 474 Goffstown Rd., Manchester.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Fisher House Foundation at www.fisherhouse.org
