Doris Yvonne (Jette) LeCourt of Hadley, died peacefully on May 10, 2015. Born January 3, 1935 in Worcester, MA to Beatrice (Cote) and Henry Jette, Doris was the sixth of ten children. She lived most of her life in Worcester, first in the south end neighborhood and then, when married, in the north end. She worked for the City of Worcester for many years at the now closed City Hospital in the kitchen. It was here that she met her husband, Charles LeCourt, whom she married in 1958. They enjoyed 52 years of marriage before Charles’ passing in 2010. Together they had two children, Bruce and Donna. After retiring from City Hospital, she helped Charlie manage their businesses: The Paddock Lounge in Worcester and the Panda Lounge in Auburn. She lived with Donna in Hadley, MA for the past 12 years where she was an active member of the Most Holy Redeemer Church and the Hadley Senior Center.
Doris’ greatest joys in life were her family, knitting, shopping and playing cards. From canasta to bid-whist, she was a competitive card player who enjoyed learning new games. She spent most of her time with family and shopping at the outlets with those women who she “adopted” as second daughters, especially Susan Glatki and Jayne Vranos. Always up for an adventure, she frequently went on trips to the beach or to Foxwoods. Active until the end, she was most happy surrounded by others talking, laughing, and being part of the group. Her family was deeply blessed by her kind spirit, infectious laughter, and unfailing support. She lit up a room with her love and was warm to all she met.
She leaves behind many who loved her: her daughter, Donna; best friends and in-laws, Alice and Joseph Landry of Myrtle Beach, SC; two sisters, Cecile Jette of Sherbrooke, Canada and Estelle Martinelli of Webster; one brother, Richard Jette (and wife Barbara) of West Palm Beach, FL; and 21 nieces and nephews, including her favorite nephew and godchild, David Landry of Shrewsbury. She is predeceased by her husband, Charlie; her son, Bruce; her brothers, Omer, Roland and Rene; and her sisters, Rita, Yvette and Theresa.
