MILTON – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Matriarch and Queen, Pauline Pratt Morrissette.

Pauline passed away unexpectedly but peacefully in her sleep with her beloved Celine by her side, Sunday August 26, 2018 at her home in Milton.

Pauline was born on May 29, 1933 in Burlington, the daughter of Eugene and Aurora (Bedard) Marcotte.

On November 29, 1986, she married Larry Morrissette, who died in 1998.       

The most important things to Pauline was her family, her faith, and all the friends she made throughout the years.  She was a very kind and giving woman who was the true meaning of being a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, we will be forever lost without her.  Never was there a person she met who stayed a stranger for long.  Mom loved her many trips to the casinos and Sunday rides.  She will be greatly missed by many.
