Laurette “Laurie” Juliette Beaver, 84, passed away peacefully on Oct. 24, 2014, in Burlington, following a long illness. Laurie was born on Nov. 2, 1929, in Saint Albans, the daughter of the late Alfred J. and Maria A. LaRoche Comeau. Laurie was a dedicated employee for 40 years at General Electric and was a bartender in her spare time. Once retired, she enjoyed cake decorating, created beautiful needlepoint, and enjoyed painting, bingo, and many trips to Montreal with her sister, Jeannette. Among her survivors is a sister Jeannette Thibault of Charlotte. Many thanks to her sister, Jeannette, and nieces, Paulette and Terri, for managing her care and wellbeing after Laurie lost her eyesight; and a special thanks to little Chessie, Terri’s dog, who gave Laurie many hours of joy. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. John Vianney Church, South Burlington, on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014, at 11:30am, with interment to follow in Resurrection Park. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, 55 Day Lane, Williston, VT 05495.
