1962 – 2020
Danielson – Dominique J. Fauteux, 58, of Killingly, passed away on Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at UMass Memorial Hospital. She fought a long and strenuous battle to the end. Born in Sherbrooke, P.Q. Canada, she was the daughter of Rita (Lamoureux) Fauteux and the late Gaetan Fauteux and moved to the United States in 1966.
Dominique was an operations officer for Bank Hometown. She attended the Connecticut School of Banking and worked for Cargill Bank, Norwich Savings Society, Baystate Savings Bank before joining Millbury Savings Bank as the operations Manager in April of 2017. When they merged with Bank Hometown in 2019, Dominique joined forces with the operations staff at the main office in Oxford. Her strong work ethic and attention to detail established her as a valuable productive member of the team.
She had her own mechanics’ tools and had learned from her father to do maintenance on her vehicles. She never walked away from hard work and especially liked working with her hands sanding and painting. She enjoyed photography, loved to walk on the beach and especially loved her cats: “Sonny and Cher.”
In addition to her mother Rita, Dominique is survived by her sister Lyne (Fauteux) Grillo and brother-in-law Jean-Pierre. She also leaves to mourn her, a large family in the province of Quebec where she loved to visit and several special friends.
Dominique was a private person, unique in many ways. If you were fortunate enough to get to know her on a personal level, you found yourself the recipient of a sincere and loyal comrade. She will be dearly missed.
