Obituary

Ellen Michele (Desroches) Guertin, loving wife, mother, and aunt was called Home Dec.16th while being held by her husband Paul Guertin.  Ellen was born April 7,1947 in Springfield, MA. to Albert and Olive Desroches.  Ellen was predeceased by her only sister, Donna.  Besides her husband Paul she leaves their son Michael Guertin and his wife Angelica who had become the daughter she never had.  She will also be missed by an uncle and cousins,Paul’s two brothers and sister, several nieces and nephews, and all who have come to know and love her.  Ellen was educated in Catholic schools from kindergarten through receiving a Bachelor’s degree in sociology with a minor in education from College of Our Lady of the Elms, and worshiped at St. Timothy Catholic Church.  She taught 5th and 6th grades before leaving teaching to raise Michael.  Later she took up a career in retail management, which she loved.  She was very active with the Fairfield Mall Merchant’s Association and also volunteered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  She and Paul retired to The Villages in August 2003.  She enjoyed playing Bingo, Disney, and vacationing on Amelia Island. In her final years she made many friends at New Covenant United Methodist Church’s respite care and in her final months received much loving care from N.C.U.M.C. ‘s Helen’s Helpers, St. Timothy Church Respite Care, and Cornerstone Hospice which allowed her to be home with her loving husband Paul.  Funeral arrangements are with Baldwin Brothers.  You are invited to share memories with the family at  www.baldwincremation.com.   Memorial services will be later at the convenience of the family.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to:  Cornerstone Hospice Foundation  2445 Lane  Park  Rd.   Tavares, FL  32778-9648

    Paul,

    I am so sorry to hear of Ellen's passing. She was a wonderful person and I feel privileged to have known her. She will be missed by many.

    I remember my visit to visit you and Ellen when you first moved to The Villages. It was a wonderful visit and I have fond memories of it.

    Love, Ann

    I am saddened to hear of Ellen passing. I still have amazing memories of her home made penuche fudge (which is my favorite to this day!) Along with countless others frim when I was a little girl. She is forever in my mind the embodiment of kindness and love. I hope the joyous memories you have of her make the whole in your heart a little less painful.
