OBITUARY

Kathryn E. Goulet

September 12, 1943May 4, 2019

Kathryn Esther Goulet, 75, of Monroe, Conn., passed away May 4, 2019, with her family by her side.

A loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, “Kathy” was known for her giving spirit, her affection for butterflies, her love of books and a passion for the New England Patriots. She also has been knitting for her family and friends for decades—including scarves for loved ones and hats for preemies in local hospitals.

She was born to the late Earl and Mearl Curtis Sept. 12, 1943 in Biddeford. Maine. She graduated from Thornton Academy in 1961 and received a BA in education from the University of Southern Maine in 1965.

She married Raymond Goulet on Sept. 5, 1965, meeting in Maine and living together in Chicago and Massachusetts before relocating to Monroe, Conn., in 1977 where the couple raised their three children.

For many years, she worked as a teacher, crafting the minds of youngsters and showering them with praise and care. Later in life, Kathy was the friendly face at the Shop and Stop checkout line, always brightening people’s days, talking about their families and her beloved Red Sox and Patriots.

A die-hard fan of both teams, Kathy would proudly wear her New England Patriots jersey and delighted in their multiple Super Bowl wins. She suffered along with most Red Sox fans most of her life until 2004, when she saw the first of the team’s four World Championships since 1918, her infectious smile coming out each time.

Kathy was a stalwart of the community, once a part of the Stevenson Volunteer Fire Department Women’s Auxiliary and a Camp Fire troop leader. She was known throughout her town for her selflessness and generosity. This was especially true in her work with her church, Good Shepherd Lutheran in Monroe, where she and Ray are considered family. Not only was she among the first to sign up for any volunteer activities, but she also started the church’s book club, enacted its very first Christmas in July fundraiser and helped the Shepherd's Flock Quilters’ recent quilt making endeavor, where church members sewed 105 quilts to donate to Lutheran World Relief.

Come December, she would always make Christmas cookies and deliver them to her neighbors and those businesses she frequented.

Kathy loved to travel, and she and Ray have visited Europe, Grand Canyon, Alaska and Hawaii in recent years. While at home, the long-time couple would play dominoes for fun, enjoy dinner at their favorite restaurants and care for their cat, Skitty.

In addition to Ray, she is survived by daughters Christine and Patricia, son Steve and grandchildren Jordan, Thomas, Julia, Jonathan, Sydney and Cassidy.
