My heart is joyous for the pleasure and gift of being a part of The LaRocque family since forever. Mrs LaRocque brought kindness, light and loveliness to each of us at all moments. A forever impression on my heart...a lady in every way. Class, grace and a giving spirit are instantaneous in my thoughts of her...and so much more. I am blessed to especially share a sisterhood and deep friendship with Deidre (Dee)...hearts locked since we were "littles" through all of our years over distance, change and time moving on. My prayers, my wishes for endless memories carrying you over the journey ahead as you honor her, miss her and celebrate the amazingness of her and my love to you all in this very difficult time. Much love...Toni

I have numerous wonderful memories of Aunt Jean! She always welcomed our family of 9 kids to her home in Rumford and to her favorite vacation spot, Goose Rocks Beach, with a sparkle and joy! Throughout the years her notes and gifts were always a big "pick-me-up" and truly appreciated. She lived her motto well. Love to all! Susan O'Malley Prewitt and family

Aunt Jean was always a bright light. I remember being the flower girl at her wedding, wearing the “poodle skirt” she made, going out to eat at fabulous restaurants, trying her recipes, visiting Rumford, Goose Rocks and Kennebunkport, getting her little cards and so many other small gifts she gave in many ways. I haven't been able to see her in years and will miss her. Love, Kathleen
