Obituary

Evelyn M. (Poutre) Guillette, 67, of Coventry, VT passed away at her home on August 17th surrounded by her family. Evelyn was born in Barton, VT to Maurice and Lucille (Girouard) Poutre. She grew up with her six brothers on the family farm in Irasburg. She loved her family dearly and emulated her mother Lucille’s fortitude and can-do attitude.

On October 30, 1971, she married Gary Guillette, who survives her.

She lived her life with an abundance of spirit, joy, and love. Her smile was contagious - she laughed easily and often. She was kind and generous to everyone. Her incredible work ethic and desire to be of service to others was seen each and every day at Guillette’s Service Station where she wore many hats: co-owner, greeter, gas attendant, bookkeeper, and car detailer. She genuinely enjoyed taking care of her customers – her friends and community. She had special friends at Community National Bank Newport, North Country Hospital, Hoagies Newport, Martha’s Diner, The Junction, and Wayne’s. – she loved them all and would want everyone to keep smiling.

At 14 years old, Evelyn started singing and playing guitar partly motivated by the need to make money to attend Sacred Heart High School, and partly just a natural born entertainer eager to be in front of a crowd. This was the start of decades of playing in a country and western band with brother Donald, husband Gary, and Bob Rushlow - all while working full time, and raising three kids. These were some of the busiest, yet best years of her life. Many recall her talent and fondness for singing “Harper Valley PTA.”

Evelyn was playful, creative, and a master storyteller. Her favorite people in any room were always the youngest - she would often be rocking a baby, playing games or spinning tall tales to that captivated audience. Her greatest enjoyment was her grandchildren Garrett, Ava, and Olivia Guillette. She came to be known by different generations of family and friends as “Taunte.” She shared her love unconditionally and received a multitude of love back in return.

Her family will miss her every moment of every day. We marveled at her strength and spirit during her 7-year battle with cancer, and in the end are thankful she is at peace. She left us as she had lived her life - with a smile. We know she has found her joy with God, her mother and father and her brothers: Henry, Donald, and Phil – and the donkey she always wanted.

She leaves her husband Gary Guillette, her mother-in-law Julia Guillette, her son Maurice Guillette and wife Lisa, daughter Anne-Marie Gray and husband Jason, daughter Christina Guillette and spouse Kendall Dewey, her sister-in-law Nancy Baker and spouse Dave Campbell, brother Fred Poutre and wife Patty, sister-in-law Paulette Poutre, brother Denis Poutre and wife Carol, brother Andre Poutre and wife Gail, brother-in-law Peter Guillette and wife Jacqui, sister-in-law Ann Gosselin and husband Rick, many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and their families, and her dear friend Mary Francis Trow. A special thank you to Dawn Marie Poutre who brought so much laughter and love into her life. She also leaves behind many loved friends and loyal customers.

Evelyn was predeceased by her father Maurice Poutre, mother Lucille Poutre, father-in-law Andre Guillette, brother Henry Poutre, brother Phil Poutre and wife Sandy, brother Donald Poutre.

Special thanks to her healthcare team at North Country Hospital: Dr. DiSanto and team, Dr. Sisson, Dr. Meredith, Dr. Veronica Jedlovszky and team; Littleton Regional Oncology – Drs. Kubica and Devitskiy and RNs Carrie, Patti, and Katrina; 2013 Chris Grenier Scavenger Hunt and The Halo Foundation; Orleans/Essex VNA and Hospice - especially Carolyn, Jene, Melanie, and Shari for their in-home care, and Sharon, Lyne, and Bev for their after-hours support; and to Father Curtis Miller of St. John’s Parish in Irasburg.

Per Evelyn’s request there will be no services held.

Gary and family,
Our deepest sympathies, may Evelyn Rest In Peace. Her infectious smile and faith in Christ was phenomenal. About 3 years ago our little granddaughter was 4 years old .. Evelyn was sitting behind us in church, she was not feeling well, she had her hair tubin on. Our little one reaches her hand out to Evelyn and that smile 😆 was unforgettable. Love and prayers.
