Obituary for Florence Saucier

Florence Saucier
Winooski - Florence Saucier, who has been called a "Queen of Winooski", passed away peacefully at the Converse home in Burlington, on December 21, just shy of her 99th birthday, Florence was a citizen of Winooski for over 70 years, coming to the city in 1945 as a new bride. She remained in her own home on Florida Avenue until moving to the Converse home 2 years ago.

She was born, Florence Marie McKeough, in Amsterdam, NY. on January 3 rd , 1919. She graduated high school from St. Marie's Institute where she met her future husband, a Vermonter, Lafayette Saucier. She earned a bachelor's degree at the College of St. Rose, in Albany, NY. graduating in 1941., Lafayette and Florence were married on June 9, 1945. Florence was Lafayette's anchor, providing stability and devotion as he proceeded from teacher to superintendent in the Winooski school system. She was also the wonderful homemaker and mother to one son, John. She worked for St. Michael's College for 25 years as an executive secretary. Florence found much joy and comfort in the Catholic faith. She was active in the Catholic daughters, soliciting for the bishop's fund, and helping in other functions of St. Stephen's church in Winooski. In later years Florence and Lafayette had many happy times traveling with the senior bus tours, camping at Malletts Bay, meeting with many dear friends at the Winooski Senior Center, and enjoying visits with their granddaughter Kristin .

In 1987 Lafayette died unexpectedly. She learned to drive at the age of 75. She delighted in the birth of her second granddaughter, Abby, in 1988, a year to the day after Lafayette's death, Florence lived independently in her own home until 2 years ago when she moved to the Converse Home. She remained close to her Winooski friends and neighbors while receiving the help she needed from the wonderful caring staff at Converse. Florence retained a positive outlook and a held a true interest in the lives of all she met. She was always kind and welcoming. She was an exemplar in how to age gracefully.
