Ms. Fannie (Greer) Goulet, age 95, passed on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, in Nashua, N.H., surrounded by her family. Fannie was born on March 7, 1924, in Columbia, N.H., to Henry and Helen Greer.
Fannie graduated from Colebrook Academy in 1942. She joined the WWII effort by going to Laconia, N.H., to make skis for the military, while her husband Leo Goulet served in the Army. She moved to Groveton, N.H., to raise her children. Fannie later worked at a local hospital and gave everything she could to her family. Fannie worked hard her entire life and shared her wisdom with her grandkids. Fannie later moved to Nashua, N.H., to be closer to family where she gained an affinity for Ghostbusters and The Lion King. Fannie was always a family oriented person, even giving up smoking. She was an avid bingo player who didn’t tolerate competitiveness; however, she was known to cheat every now and then at card games and had an excellent sense of humor. Fannie was a loving, caring, feisty, headstrong and sometimes stubborn woman, and a fighter until the end.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory, one sister, Mrs. Anna (Greer) Jarry; 7 children: Irene (Goulet) Ladd, Louie Goulet, Mary (Goulet) Reynolds, David Goulet, Helen (Goulet) Croteau, Fred Goulet, and Lori (Goulet) Frizzell; as well as 15 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
A graveside service will be held for Fannie at the Colebrook Village Cemetery, Route 3 in Colebrook on Friday, July 19, at 1 p.m. Pastor Todd Goulet will be performing the service. The family welcomes all to join them following the service to celebrate Fannie’s life at the Black Bear Tavern, 151 Main St., Colebrook.
