She was born in Van Buren, Maine to the late Antoine and Theresa Thibodeau on November 30, 1937. She and Gilbert were high school sweethearts and were married in 1956. She lived briefly at the Whiting Field Naval base in Milton Florida before settling in Windsor Locks CT and then was a longtime resident of Broad Brook before moving to Northford twelve years ago.

for several years before her retirement. She was an avid Red Sox fan, loved to play card games, watching her soap operas and lottery scratch tickets. Most of all she loved spending time with her family. Her greatest joy came from the time spent talking and laughing while gathering at the kitchen table with family and friends.
