Simone G. Cornell
BLACKSTONE- Simone G. Cornell, 83, of Blackstone, MA, passed away on Sunday, March 4, 2012 at the Milford Regional Medical Center in Milford, MA. She was born April 23, 1928 in Woonsocket, RI, daughter of the late Donat and Alma (Forand) Rouette.
She was the loving and caring wife of 58 years to the late Bernard R. Cornell.
Simone had worked as a winder for the former Bernat Yarns Company in Uxbridge, MA for 20 years. In addition, she was also a cooks helper for Hopedale Gardens for 4 years. For all of those who knew Simone, you could see that she was full of life. She had a good sense of humor, made sure she ate her vegetables with her supper every night and drank a glass of port wine to keep herself young and vibrant. She also believed in the old saying "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away". Simone had many interests in life including crocheting, crossword puzzles, and going to the casinos. One of her favorite past times was going out and playing Bingo with her daughter Cindy once a week. Simone would be so involved in the game, that if the caller didnt call out the last number Simone needed to get a Bingo, she would yell out at her table, "THATS RIDICULOUS!!"
Simone is survived by a son, Raymond Cornell and his wife Marsha of Blackstone, MA; 4 daughters- Cecelia "Cindy" Leduke and her husband Wilfred of Cumberland, RI, Christine Nault and her husband Al of Laconia, NH, Patricia Holcomb and her husband Gerard of North Smithfield, RI, and Lillian Dumas and her husband Leo of West Warwick, RI; a brother Andrew Rouette of North Smithfield, RI; 12 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements were held privately and entrusted to the Egidio DiPardo and Sons Funeral Home.
