Obituary for Germaine R. Whitney

Germaine R. Whitney, 88, of Peterborough, NH, passed away peacefully, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at Summerhill Assisted Living in Peterborough, N.H. She was born February 14, 1931, in Greenville, New Hampshire, the daughter of Arthur and Leda (Michaud) Caouette.

Germaine grew up in Greenville and attended Appleton Academy in New Ipswich. Later, she and her husband raised their children in Wilton where she worked at the Abbott Worsted Mill for many years. After moving to Greenfield, she worked at the Brookstone Company in Peterborough, from which she retired. Germaine enjoyed being active and enjoyed her daily walks. She was an avid reader and enjoyed the challenge of completing the most difficult crossword puzzles she could find. After she and her husband’s retirement, they spent many years hosting family birthdays and celebrations at their home on Crescent Lake in Wolfeboro, NH, and later at their Florida home in Beverly Hills. Spending time with friends and family is what she enjoyed most.
Germaine is survived by her husband of 70 years, Earle H. Whitney Sr., of Peterborough NH; her sons Leonard Whitney and his significant other Donna of Lowell, MA, Lane Whitney of Milford, NH, Earle Whitney Jr. of Brookton ME; her daughters, Cindy Whitney of Enosburg Falls, VT, Susan Jackson and her husband Robert of Rindge, NH, and Carol Dwire and her husband Owen of Nebo, NC. She was predeceased by her brothers Leonard Caouette and Arthur Caouette Jr. She has 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren as well and several cousins, nieces and nephews. She will be missed, but not forgotten by all. In lieu of flowers her family asks that donations be made to either Compassus Hospice and Palliative Care, 170S River Rd Building #20, Bedford, NH, or to the Alzheimer’s Association, @ alz.org.
The family wishes to thank everyone at Summerhill Assisted Living, with special thanks to the wonderful staff on Meadows One.
