Laurette T. Arsenault, age 94, of Bridgeport (formerly of Norwalk, Monroe & Stratford)
joined her dearly loved husband of 71 years, Russell Arsenault, in heaven on September 17, 2020 at Jewish Senior Services in Bridgeport. Laurette was born in St. Theodore D’Acton, Canada to the late Ovila and Marie (Belec) Marsan.
Laurette’s zeal for life has always been steeped in her deep love of Jesus and her family. Her devotion to baking, cooking, sewing, crocheting and knitting was benefited by all including the impoverished both near and far. Laurette was an extraordinary mom, a superior grandmother and a very loving Aunt. Faith, Family and Friends were her importance of life. A working mom, Laurette was a seamstress at a local garment manufacturer and later worked at the former Southern New England Telephone Company (AT&T) for 25 years where she retired as a Supervisor for long distance operators.
Survivors include her children Russell J. Arsenault II of Newburg, OR, Gloria Kelly of W. Haven, Janet Wrabel and husband Thomas of Fairfield, and James Arsenault of Shelton;
Grandchildren: Matthew, Trevor and Joseph Arsenault; Rachel, Michael, Matthew and Christine Kelly; Ryan Wrabel, Laurie (Wrabel) Mills, and Rebecca Arsenault;
ten great grandchildren; sister-in-laws Edna (Arsenault) Burby and Dorothy (Arsenault) Longo; and many nieces and nephews.
Laurette was the 13th child in her family. She has been predeceased by her 6 brothers Ernest, Armand, Gerard, Lucien, Jean Paul, Lorenzo Marsan, and six sisters Bertha Marsan, Germaine Fontaine, Cecile Martel, Gabrielle Doyon, Juliette Tougas, Antoinette Young; along with two very cherished grandchildren Sean Arsenault and Megan Arsenault.
