TANGUAY, JEANNETTE LUCIENNE, died on September 5, in Barton. For more than 60 years she made her home in Greensboro Bend. In the last years of her life she lived in Craftsbury at the Craftsbury Community Care Center and at Maple Lane Nursing Home in Barton. Jeannette was born in St. Justine, Quebec, on July 22, 1917. Her parents were Philibert and Alexina (Rouleau) Morin. Upon leaving Canada, her family first lived in Walden. Jeannette was raised in Craftsbury, where she graduated from Craftsbury School in eighth grade. She married Emeric Tanguay in Hardwick, on Aug. 10, 1940, and resided in East Hardwick, Jacksonville, and Greensboro Bend. Jeannette’s home was immaculate, and she kept houses for many families in Craftsbury in her teen years and in Greensboro in her adult years. She retired at age 83. In her late 80s and early 90s she was part of the care team that kept Emeric at home until his passing in 2009. She was known for her ability to conjure a delicious dinner at a moment’s notice, hosted countless wonderful meals for her family, and shared her cooking with St. Michael Parish and with those whom she felt needed a good meal. A quiet perfectionist, she took great care in everything she did. Along with her husband, Emeric, she was a lively participant in the French Canadian social traditions of past decades, from late-night dancing, singing and in later years, card playing. Jeannette was predeceased by her husband, Emeric; her sister Juliette Demers and brothers Alfred, Lucien, Nestor, Henry; several in-laws; and niece Sharyn Wetzel, of Massachusetts. She is survived by her sister Mary Morin, of Caspian Lake and South Carolina; nieces and nephews; and godson Douglas McArthur, of Montpelier. Jeannette was a beloved mother to daughters Jacqueline Molleur and Gilles, of Derby Line; Louise and Raymond Menard, of Montpelier; and Diane, of Hardwick; and also leaves behind six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
