Milford, formerly of Northbridge---Edith "Ditto" (Lauzier) Morrissette died Thursday, January 7 at the Whitcomb House. She leaves a son, David "Dino" Morrissette and his girlfriend Sue Lussier, of Woonsocket, RI and 3 daughters: Ann Goodell and her husband Richard, of N. Brookfield, Susan Bugden and her husband Steven, of Amesbury and Donna Rose, of Upton. In addition, she leaves 7 grand children and 2 great grandchildren. Mrs. Morrissette was predeceased by her husband Raymond A. Morrissette, in 1972 and her brother, Gerald "Shuster" Lauzier.
Born March 27, 1929 in Northbridge, where she resided until moving to Milford only 2 years ago, she was the daughter of Joseph and Eugenie (Gagnon) Lauzier. As a young woman, she worked for Paul Whitin Manufacturing in Rockdale, Tuppers in Grafton and made hats at home for one of the local hat factories. Later, she worked as an assembler for General Electric, in Ashland, retiring from Telecron.
"Ditto" was a life-long member of Saint Peter's Church, where she sang in the choir and served on the Bereavement Committee. She was known as a wonderful cook and enjoyed sewing and knitting. Her true passion, however, was singing. She was a member of the Knights and Maids choral group for many years and continued to sing until the end.
