IRASBURG – Claire Yvette (Cote) Jaquish passed away with family by her side on July 2, 2021, in North Country Hospital in Newport at the age of 80 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Irasburg on February 4, 1941, to Lucien and Emilienne (Bolduc) Cote. She spent her early years in Newport and Barre, graduating from Marion High School in Barre in 1960. She worked as a bookkeeper for many years, retiring in 2006.

She and her husband Charles moved to Irasburg in 1975. With the help of family and friends, they built their log home, spending many nights and weekends peeling the logs by hand. She enjoyed canning and freezing the harvest from her husband’s vegetable garden which kept her busy in the summer months. She enjoyed watching the Food Network and QVC and she was affectionately known as the “QVC Queen” by her family. Claire also enjoyed going to camp and beating the guys at poker, playing bingo, and trying her luck at the casino.

She is survived by her daughter Ann Jenne and partner Randy (Tunk) Burns; her husband’s children from a previous marriage Jo-Ann (Gary) Johnson, Denis (Karen) Jaquish, and Charles (Kathy) Jaquish; six grandchildren, Nicholas, Brandy (Normand), Kristopher (Virginia), Jessica, Geoffroy, and Michael; two great-grandchildren, Evan and Jacob; sisters Yolande Cody, Joanne (Dana) Comstock, and brother Maurice (Monica) Cote. She also leaves behind a sister-in-law, Janet Chadwick and several nieces and nephews. On April 26, 2021, she was predeceased by her husband Charles. She was also predeceased by her parents, a sister Therese LaChance and her husband Paul, brothers-in-law Don Cody, Robert Jaquish, Ken Chadwick and sister-in-law Jacqueline Jaquish.

A celebration of the lives of Claire and Charlie will be held on July 31, 2021, at their home at 1802 West Glover Road in Irasburg with a service beginning at 2:00 p.m., followed by a luncheon. Burial will be at the family’s convenience in Irasburg Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Claire's memory to Dr. Leslie Lockridge, P.O. Box 838, Newport, Vermont 05855.

Claire was my grandmother's niece and I only met her once at a family get together in Derby Line a few years ago. She was a lovely lady and was very helpful with the family genealogy when I asked questions. I had hoped to get up and see her again to talk some more, but COVID intervened and now she has passed. My condolences to the family and may she rest in peace.

I was so sorry to hear of Claire's passing. We worked together at Sterling College for over 10 years. Claire was a team player and always offered me the soundest advice during some difficult times in my life. She had many sayings about Vermont, its people, the weather, and family. Every once and a while I remember one and think of her. I will continue to do so. Seeing her pretty face on the memory wall brings tears to my eyes. Go in peace Claire, you are missed.
