Obituary for Karen Girouard
Karen (Ouellette) Girouard, 55, of Greenville, NH, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Thursday, December 7, 2017. She was born on August 6, 1962, in Ashby, MA; the daughter of Kathleen (Kumpu) Ouellette, and Robert Joseph Ouellette II, who predeceased her in 2006.
In the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Karen was a manager at Wendy's in Fitchburg, then in Gardner, MA. Most recently, Karen was employed by K-Mart in Fitchburg prior to it’s closing. In her free time, she adored being outside in nice weather. Her favorite place to vacation was York Beach in York, ME. At home, she was a wonderful cook. Karen was known very well for her culinary skills. Her baking skills (from scratch, of course) were even more well known. She took pride with photo albums of her colorful confectionary creations created with every detail perfect. Beyond all else, she will always be known to help and take care of family, friends and others whenever she could.
Karen is survived by her husband of 38 years, George Girouard; and her mother Kathleen Ouellette, both of Greenville, NH. She is also survived by her son, Sean Girouard and his fiancé Ashley of Fitchburg, MA and her granddaughter Destiny Ray of Maine; Her sister Faith Marvell and husband Gordon of Fitchburg, MA; Her brother Robert Ouellette III and his wife Debbie of Winchendon, MA, as well as brothers Chris Ouellette of Greenville, NH, Kenny Ouellette of Fitchburg, MA, and Michael Ouellette of Fitchburg, MA. She also leaves behind two nieces, four nephews, over ten plants, and her very best friend and dear companion dog, Jackson "Jax" Girouard, who she walked for the last time that day.
