Obituary for Louise Irene Madore

February 18, 1933 - November 27, 2019
Manchester, New Hampshire | Age 86


Louise Irene (Michaud) Madore, 86, left to live in her eternal home with her Lord and Savior, November 27, 2019, after a period of declining health at Mt. Carmel Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Manchester, NH.

She was born in Van Buren, ME, February 18, 1933 to Adelard "Pete" and Laura (Sirois) Michaud. She graduated from Sacred Heart High School, Van Buren, ME in 1950, after which time she worked for an insurance agency as the office manager. Having met her husband Don at a dance in Van Buren, they resided in Presque Isle, ME after their marriage. Don, Louise and their three children moved to Bedford, NH in 1968, where she lived for most of her life. There she volunteered for a group that organized overnight Eucharistic vigils and served as a minister to the sick at Catholic Medical Center.

Louise was a devout Roman Catholic and parishioner of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church for 47 years. She was a daily Mass attendee, and cherished spending time in prayer before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Her faith was the guiding force in her life—spending hours in prayer for the needs of her ever-growing family and the needs of others. She possessed a deep devotion to the Blessed Mother and enlisted as a member of the Blue Army of Our Lady of Fatima . A rosary was never far from her hand. She made two religious pilgrimages, one to Medjugorie and the other to Fatima.

She preferred life at home over travel and activities, where she maintained an impeccable abode, prepared delicious daily meals, baked scrumptious desserts, and fashioned exquisite clothing and home furnishings by hand, all for the pleasure of those she so dearly loved. Louise was a woman who carried out the duties of wife and mother with commitment, consistency, care and compassion. She will be remembered for leading a simple and humble life in accordance with her faith.

She was predeceased by her parents Peter and Laura, sisters Lorette, Irma, Priscille, Theresa, and brothers Clifford and Claude.

The family includes her husband of 63 years, J. Donald Madore of Manchester; three children, David Madore of Norwich, CT, Lynn Madore of Hartford, VT and Michele Paquette and husband, Jeffrey, of Pittsfield, NH; nine grandchildren, Nicholas, Aimee, Emily, Lauren, Anna Rose, John, Jacinta, Christopher and Sarah; five great grandchildren, Aiden, Avery, Finley, Todd and Blaize; two sisters, Leola and Gloria; many nieces and nephews.

The family is forever grateful for all of Louise's 3rd floor "sweetie pies:" the nurses and staff, who so lovingly cared for her during her time at the nursing home.

A Mass of Catholic Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, December 7, 2019 at St. Elizabeth Seton Church, 190 Meetinghouse Rd., Bedford. Private committal prayers will take place at New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 166 So. River Rd., Suite 210, Bedford, NH 03110.
