Danielson – Jane M. Daigle of Maple Ct., died Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at Day Kimball Hospital. She was born in 1932, the daughter of the late Armand and Elizabeth (Maloney) Daigle.
Jane received a calling from the Lord at the early age of 14 when she joined the contemplative order of the Dominican Nuns of the Perpetual Rosary in NY and NJ. She was a religious for many decades. Jane was released of her vows in order to care for her parents; however, she continued to remain true to her vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. Jane worked for 20 years as a certified nurse’s aide in two convalescent homes in NH. Jane played an integral role in opening the Northeast CT Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel where she served as coordinator for 15 years. Jane touched the lives of many people with her quiet strength and devotion to God. She always had a kind word of encouragement for all she met. Jane truly lived her faith.
Jane leaves her two dear sisters: Gertrude (Trudy) Carr of Brooklyn and Celina Bonin of Woodstock. She also leaves many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother George Daigle, sister Joann Benoit, brother-in-law Brian Bonin and sister-in-law Laurette Daigle. Jane also leaves many dear friends along with her hospice nurses.
