Obituary for Susanne Laurette Gauthier

Susanne Laurette Gauthier, age 64, of Nashua, NH, passed away peacefully in the loving and compassionate care of the Community Hospice House of Merrimack NH on April 5, 2023, following a courageous cancer journey.

She was born in Berlin, NH on July 3, 1958, daughter of the late Gerard & Pauline (Arsenault) Gauthier. She was a graduate of Mount Saint Mary in Nashua. She had resided in various areas of California since 1985, and most recently settled in the Napa Valley area, until her failing health prompted her to come back home to New Hampshire late last year.

Prior to her illness she had worked for many years in prints, graphics, and design, and most recently, as an administrative assistant, for Lumen Technologies.

She enjoyed cross-stitch, and jewelry-making. She also enjoyed cooking, baking, and travelling. She especially loved Europe. It was her hope to return someday. She was selfless, generous, and loved doing things for others. After her mother’s passing, Susanne assumed her legacy of crocheting prayer shawls for the sick and dying. Her greatest achievement, though, was her generous and loving spirit, which she shared with everyone she met, and which will live on through all of those who knew her.

Susanne is survived by a brother and sister-in-law, Georges & Pamela Gauthier; three sisters and two brothers-in-law, Monique & Winston Savage, Paulette Godbout, Pauline & Leon Roy; a very special sister-in-law, Sheryl Gauthier; nieces, Beth Lelievre and husband, Keith, Nicole Fante, Danielle Belair; nephews, Matthew Gauthier and wife Rickie, Jacob Anaya and husband Jeremy; great-niece, Noelle Fante; great-nephew, Carter Gauthier. She was sister of the late Paul Gauthier, twin brother to Pauline Roy.
