Notes for Marie Rose Vima Denoncourt:
Mary ,A nickname for Marie, came from a large family of 14 siblings.She was a life long resident of the Springfield/Chicopee Ma area and worked as a winder for F. W. Sickles Co. of Chicopee all her life till she retired at the age of 62 in 1976 after 22 years of service.
She was a communicant of St Thomas Aquinas Church of Springfield Ma and later a communicant of Assumption Church in Chicopee Ma.She was Baptized and raised a Roman Catholic.
Mary was a kind gentle women who would give the world to her children.She never complained and never showed pain. I, Denise, believed she stayed married to Lester because she was determined to make the marriage work.She never believed in divorce.Mary was the strong one in this marriage.She diedat home at a young age of 72 from cancer.The funeral was at 8 A.M. Saturday the 16th of May from Grise Funeral Home, 280 Springfield St Chicopee Ma followed by a 9 A.M. Mass of Christian burial in Assumption Church in Chicopee Ma.burial in Calvary Cemetery.
Mary had a daughter at the age of 19 who she gave up for adoption.This was done out of love and deep pain.Mary was not married and knew she could not give her first born the kind of home she would want for her.She kept this a secret and took it with her when she died.We do not know the name of Mary's first born father.We understand that it is on the original birth record but sealed.We understand that a paternity suit was filled by my uncle, Ovila McClure.These records are open to the public and some day we will find them.Until then the identity will remain a mystery.I, Denise, do believe that this man was my mother's true love but due to circumstances beyond her control she could not marry him.
Daughter's birth name, Mary Margaret Denoncourtborn 12-6-1934
