LUDLOW, Vt. – Hazel Johnson Beaulieau, 79, of Ludlow, was called home to the Lord on Sunday, April 1, 2018. Hazel was born on Sept. 20, 1938, the daughter of Earnest and Charlotte Johnson. After many years of employment at Mack Molding in Cavendish, Hazel began doing childcare for friends and family, which brought her much joy. She also worked for a short time at the Gill Home before becoming a full time resident in 2011.
Hazel’s days at the Gill Home were greatly enhanced by all the great people at the home. She greatly enjoyed the church services and loved to sing the hymns, especially with Paul Ippolito.
Before failing health, Hazel very much enjoyed her trips to the Café at Delight with her dear friend, Helen Bostock. She also enjoyed special times with her friend Jean Carr. Though she greatly enjoyed all who came to visit, she very much looked forward to daily visits and coffee time with her daughter, Janice, who was always there without fail. Hazel greatly enjoyed hugs, and once she got her arms around you, you would definitely know that you had been hugged.
Hazel was predeceased by her parents, her husband Jerry Beaulieau, special friend Eddie Farrar, her sister and brother in law, Helen and Ron Royce.
She is survived by her daughter and son in law Janice and Melvin DeGrasse; grandchildren J.P. and Morgan Carlisle, Jeremy and Stausha Carlisle, and Amanda and Brett Hazeltine; great grandchildren Harper, Colby, Hailey, Chloe, Zoey, and Sierra Carlisle, Chris Chico, and Trey and Lizzie Smith, Isabella and Kaitlyn Hazeltine; and great great granddaughter Adie Smith.
She is also survived by nieces DeeDee and Dody and nephew Doug.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 2 p.m. at the Ludlow Baptist Church with reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Gill Home would be greatly appreciated.
