RACHEL J. MARTEL (Brouillette) was born in Berkshire VT on September 18, 1922 and was a life-long resident of this area.
Rachel attended local schools and graduated valedictorian of her class from Richford High School in 1942 and immediately put her talents to the service of her country by her work for a munitions corporation in Connecticut during World War II.
Rachel had a gentle disposition and knew how to bring love and joy to those she met. She and husband Roger raised their family in the area and were always involved in many local activities and groups. Rachel was high energy and totally given to the causes she took on. Rachel was particularly proud of her involvement with the Ladies of Ste. Anne, her pastoral care volunteer ministry at Northeast Medical Center and her Covenant as an Associate member of the Daughters of the Holy Spirit whose charism of service to others she lived in an exemplary manner in every aspect of her life.
Rachel entered her new life on June 7, 2020 and will be remembered and honored forever by all who knew her. Rest in peace and love, Rachel, as you continue to bless us all.
