George A. Monette, born November 25, 1933, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Friday, March 2, 2012. He was the son of the late George H. Monette and the late Anna (Daniels) Monette. He leaves his beloved wife of 55 years, Pauline, and his daughters Diane Lautier of Enfield, CT and Deborah Monette of Springfield and her good friend Elizabeth Tingler. He was predeceased by his sister, Anna Mae Bissonnette. He also leaves behind several nieces and nephews. George was a member of the Armed Forces having served in the United States Army, and worked at Holyoke Magazine Press before forming his own business in 1970. Upon his semi retirement, he started a second career working for St. Elizabeth Parish. As an avid wood worker and remodeler, this presented an ideal opportunity to express his creativity and expertise in many projects around the Parish, Pastoral Center and the School. He was an active member of the Parish and served as a Eucharist Minister, and served or chaired multiple Parish committees. George’s family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at the D’Amour Cancer Center as well as Baystate Visiting Nurses and Hospice for their wonderful care and support.
