Claire M. Bourget – Lincoln

Claire M. Bourget, 84, of Manville, died Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, at The Holiday in Manville. She was the loving wife of Roger G. Bourget. They were married on Sept. 3, 1956, and recently celebrated 63 wonderful years together.

Born and raised in Manville, she was a daughter of the late Theodore and Alma (Dupuis) Peloquin. She was a lifelong resident of Manville and a graduate of St. Clare Girls High School in Woonsocket.

In her earlier years, Claire worked at Forte Brothers in Woonsocket. After raising her family she was employed in the housekeeping department at The Holiday in Manville for a number of years. She was a lifelong communicant of St. James Parish.

Claire enjoyed taking a number of memorable trips with her family to various destinations. She was a professional “window shopper” as that was considered “her time.” Though outwardly a quiet lady, Claire had a warm heart and treasured the simple things in life. Her family meant everything to her and she relished her role as a grandmother and great- grandmother.

In addition to her husband, she survived by three daughters Cheryl A. Joinville and her husband, Michael, and Sandra M. Ouellette and her husband, Richard, all of Manville, and Joan C. Silva and her husband, Carlos, of Seekonk, Mass. She was the sister of Therese Peloquin and Irene Capparella, both of Lincoln, and the late J. Camille, Romeo, Armand and Gerald Peloquin. She is also survived by seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren (with another on the way!) and many nieces and nephews and their families.

Her funeral will be Friday, Oct. 11, at 9 a.m., from the Menard-Lacouture Funeral Home, 71 Central St., Manville, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in St. James Church, Division St. Manville. Burial will follow in St. James Cemetery, Manville. Visiting hours are Thursday, Oct. 10, from 4 to 7 pm.
