I’ll never forget the yearly birthday trips to Chelo’s & Toys R Us. My sister and I always looked forward to these trips. Even at 23 years old, I still received birthday cards from Auntie Joc. She’ll be missed ❤️

I had the pleasure of working with Jocelyn during her time as a school nurse in Woonsocket. She was a wonderful and kind person that could make a stressful day easier with her quick wit. She would share stories about her grandchildren. May she Rest In Peace.

My sincere condolences to Jocelyn’s family and loved ones. While working with her at Pothier Elementary school, I remember needing her help in certain situations and that her ability to remain calm amazed me. She had a big heart and always made sure she had healthy snacks available for students. She was loved by many students.
I will keep you all in my prayers.
