ASHBURNHAM- Genevieve V. (Cournoyer) Gaudet, 77, passed away on August 25, 2020, after a brief and sudden illness, while surrounded by her loving family. Genevieve was born on August 12, 1943 in Southbridge, MA to the late Theodore and Edna Cournoyer. She worked as a customer service manager at WalMart for many years before retiring and moving to Ashburnham, MA to enjoy her days on Sunset Lake with the love of her life, Michael. Family was her passion and joy. Genevieve enjoyed gardening, giving “lake real estate tours”, puzzles, fishing, playing cards, knitting, decorating, boating, sunsets on the lake and a glass of wine. She will be forever remembered for her hospitality and welcoming everyone with open arms. Genevieve’s sense of style was unmatched and the holidays were her time to shine. Her laugh and inner glow that radiated out to everyone she loved can never be forgotten. Words alone cannot capture the impression that she has left in all of our hearts. Genevieve, loving wife, mother and grandmother, leaves her husband of 39 years, Michael Gaudet; daughters, Margo Meunier and her husband Bernard, Kristi Shattuck, Angelique Gaudet and her husband Justin Laramie; sons, Bruce Panico Jr. and his wife Diane, Todd Panico and his wife Heather; sisters, Charlotte Peck and her husband Roger, Claudette Biadasz and her husband Joseph, Madeline Cotton, Suzanne Girard; brothers, Paul Cournoyer and his wife Emily, Marc Cournoyer and his wife Janet, Theodore Jr. Cournoyer and his wife Alice, Robert Cournoyer and his wife Diane.
