    My deepest sympathy to Adrienne’s family. She was a very special lady, and a very close friend to me for 30+ years, having met at St. Joseph Church. We shared many good times, and some of the memories we would talk about were the times we visited Fr. Boisvert when he moved to Montville, and a favorite place for us was the Lighthouse Inn in New London, then a nice restaurant, and as Adrienne would say “classy” place – classy is how I can best describe Adrienne. She was a warm, kind, loving, special friend who will never be forgotten; she will always be in my heart. Love, Chris

    To all my dear cousins…what a legacy Great Aunt Adrienne has left behind. I’ll always treasure the stories she told, visits to the house on Stein Street, and dining at “The Club”! 😉 She will be sorely missed, and am so happy we got to see her in August. She was an angel among us…
    Love you all, Jennifer and family

    My deepest condolences to the entire Coderre family. I enjoyed spending my days with Adrienne, her subtle humor and that smile that went straight to my heart. She enjoyed having coffee with me in the morning, asking me about my day to come and what the weather was outside. She would hold my hand and tell me about the post office from when she worked there. Something she loved very much. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten. Annette

    Aunt Adrienne, affectionately known to her many nieces and nephews as “ma tante,” was a woman of faith and family. She loved God fervently and reverently, and she loved her parents, siblings, and extended family completely. She was loved back by all of us. She was steady and strong, and she had a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed her company when I would take her to various doctor appointments when she was 101, 102, and 103. She did so well when we were out and about. I was among several family members and Westview staff who were with her when she went to her home in heaven on Friday morning, 9 November. We all cried over the great loss, but truly knew she was gone to a better place where she would be welcomed by God, his angels, and her beloved family. God bless you, ma tante, and please keep us all in your prayers. Gone, but never forgotten. All my love, Dee

    My father was Joseph Laurent Coderre and Aunt Adrienne’s youngest brother. Having lived far from the Family we did not have the pleasure of knowing Ma Tante as close as all of you. Our visits were few but as memoralble as yesterday. My love of Ma Tante came from my father who spoke of his family devoutly and often. We join with all of you not in sadness but in the joy of knowing there is one huge reunon behind the Gates of Heaven. We wish each of you the continued Love, Peace and Joy that Aunt Adrienne brought to all that knew her.

    Blessing to All,

    Joe and Pat Coderre
