Heaven welcomed another angel our dear mother, Jeannette Morrissette, who sadly passed away on July 29, 2022 at the age of 89. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother always there when we needed her. Jeannette had many friends and was an active member of the community in Berlin, NH and a life-long resident. She graduated from Notre Dame High School class of 1951 and was a member of the Good Shepard Parish. Once she became an empty nester, she decided to join the workforce which included different job positions. She worked for Silver Brothers for 15 years, Country Closet in Gorham, North Country Bank, JC Penney and Nicole’s Shoe store. Jeannette enjoyed volunteering and participating with class reunions, Chamber of Commerce Auctions, member of T.O.P.S, Greeter and Concierge Member of the Androscoggin Valley Hospital for many years.
She loved spending time with her family in Berlin and in Florida. Jeannette and her late husband Ray were avid Bruins hockey fans. Her son Richard, and grandsons Jason and Kyle will never forget their grandmother attending their hockey games cheering them on with her cowbell. Jeannette also enjoyed supporting local hockey attending many hockey games at the Notre Dame arena. It was not unusual to see her Saturday night at the Arena with her nieces and nephews. Some of her fondest memories were having lunch with Caitlyn at AVH and going shopping together in North Conway. She was thrill to have had the opportunity to be present at the birth of her great granddaughter Makayla in Florida creating a very special bond and moment in time.
