Obituary for Margaret L. Guillet

It is with great sadness that the family of Margaret "Marge" (Saillant) Guillet, 77, share the news of her passing on September 24, 2018 after a brief illness. Marge is the wife of Louis Guillet Jr. of Nasonville. She was born in Woonsocket, to the late Theodore and Theresa Saillant. Marge and Lou grew up together in Chipman's Corner and began dating when he was at Mount Saint Charles and she at St. Claire's. Their 57 year marriage was filled with the love and joy of family and friends. Marge was always at her happiest when surrounded by those she loved. Marge and Lou could still be seen holding hands as they enjoyed autumn fairs, British car club outings and attending every manner of activity for their six grandchildren.
Marge earned her Associates Degree from Johnson and Wales and completed her Bachelor of Human Studies from URI in 2002, all the while raising her family and working full time. Marge has been a lifelong advocate, particularly for her son, David, and her husband. After a career in insurance, she pursued her passion by working with children and adults with disabilities helping them to become active citizens in the community. She single-handedly started a program in Rhode Island called "Home of My Own" where adults with disabilities were able to own their own homes.
Over the course of her career, Marge worked in many places where she acquired a whole host of new friends, adding to those she had all of her life. Everyone who came in contact with her was touched by her energy, sharp wit, compassion, kindness and humility.
She leaves her four children and their spouses: Ann and Tom Morency, Michelle and Dave Helmin, David Guillet and Renee and Brian McCutcheon. She also leaves her six grandchildren: Lauren and Katelyn Morency, Andrew and Elisabeth Helmin and Madison and Kelsey McCutcheon, and a very special person who came to us as a friend and grew in our hearts to become family, Paula Costa. She also leaves her siblings: Susan Godin and Theodore Saillant. She is predeceased by her brothers Robert and Richard Saillant.
A memorial mass will be held on Monday, October 8, 2018 at 10:30 AM in St. Theresa's Church, 35 Dion Dr., Nasonville. Arrangements are under the direction of the Boucher Funeral Home, 272 Sayles Ave. Pascoag. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Marge's honor to Meeting Street School, 1000 Eddy St., Providence, RI 02905. or at www.meetingstreet.org or to St. Theresa's Shrine, 35 Dion Dr., Harrisville, RI 02830.
