Gisele (Gohier) Bolduc, 98, of New Haven


NEW HAVEN — Gisele (Gohier) Bolduc, 98, passed away Wednesday, March 30, 2022, at her daughter’s home in Williston.

She was born on July 15, 1923, in Montréal, the daughter of Armande Gohier and Cleria (DeLude) Gohier.

She attended school and high school under the direction of Holy Cross Nuns. She graduated from Tremblay Business College for Girls in 1940. She was married on Feb. 23, 1946, to Real John Bolduc. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army on Nov. 19, 1945. They bought a small farm in New Haven in the summer of 1946 and raised their four children and lived on the farm.

She and her husband became members of New Haven Grange in 1953 and she was the treasurer until it closed in the 1990s. In 1980 she became the manager and treasurer of St. Peter’s Credit Union in Vergennes for 15 years. She was a member of the Ladies of St. Anne for over 35 years, and she volunteered at St. Peter’s Closet since it opened and the Rummage Sale over the last 35 years.

Since her retirement she has enjoyed working in her flower garden, feeding the birds, knitting pieces for blankets, and enjoying her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also kept in touch with the Ladies of St. Anne and the workers at the closet for the church. She enjoyed working on puzzles during the winter months and answering a lot of telephone calls from relatives and friends.

Her husband, Real Bolduc, passed away in December 1998 at the age of 87.

Gisele is survived by her four children, Peter and Barbara (Weddell) Bolduc of New Haven, Denise Welch of Arizona, Suzanne and her husband Edward Shepard of Bristol, and Lucie and her husband Jon Fath of Williston; 12 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; a sister in Quebec, Canada; and many nieces and nephews from Vermont and Canada.
