Mary J. Laliberte

Mary J. (Racicot) Laliberte, 71, of Nashua, NH, left this earth and returned to her heavenly home on February 5, 2016, after a valiant battle with a long illness. Her devotion to her family and her belief in our Lord supported her in her struggle and ultimately gave her peace.

Mary was born to Azaire and Emalda Racicot, in Newport Center, VT on March 20, 1944. Mary was blessed with loving family and friends. She married the love of her life, Maurice B. Laliberte, in June 1981 in Manchester, NH. Mary helped raise a son with patience, discipline and a little laughter. She was kind, softspoken, and always had a way of making people laugh and enjoyed life. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her creator.

Mary is survived by her husband, Maurice; her son, Victor Laliberte and his wife Jill of Haslet, TX; her grandchildren, Ryan, Nathaniel and Rebecka Laliberte; and her brothers, Norman and John Racicot of Milford, NH, as well as Lionel Racicot of Franklin, NH, several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Hector Racicot; and a sister, Rita Flood. Mary enjoyed walks, dancing, music and bowling with her husband and friends.

Mary was a member of the Association of the Blind of NH and the Federation of the Blind. She worked for Bemis Corp. in Nashua for many years and retired from Tobin Tri-Star after working in dining services.

A celebration of Mary’s life was held at the Lighthouse Calvary Chapel, 273 South River Road Bedford, NH, on Tuesday, February 9th at 5:00 p.m. with a reception following. Pastor George Smith and Senior Pastor Dean Braham officiated at the service.
