Jeanne Gould Obituary

Jeanne A. (Robbins) Gould died Monday, November 6, 2023, at Blackstone Valley Health and Rehab after a brief illness.  In 2020, her husband of more than 55 years, Harold D. Gould, Jr.  predeceased her.  A daughter of Earl E. and Madeline (Dorrington) Robbins, Sr., Jeanne was born December 31, 1934, in Blackstone, where she lived until moving to Whitinsville in 1971.

 Jeanne was a graduate of Blackstone High School and Worcester State College, where she earned a bachelor's degree in education.  Jeanne was very proud of the fact that she was the first Kindergarten teacher for the town of Blackstone where she taught for 11 years. She later became a member of various local school building committees as an auditor, most notably for the Blackstone-Millville Regional and Nipmuc school systems.

Jeanne was a member of the Blackstone Valley Art Association and the Northbridge Arts Council. As a very talented artist, she won numerous ribbons for her oil, acrylic and watercolor artwork. In addition, she won awards for her knitting and crocheting of afghans. She was an organist and choir director at the former St. Paul Church in Blackstone for many years and trustee of the Whitinsville Social Library.  She was an active and dedicated member of the Whitinsville Womens Club, having served as president of the local chapter and past president at the state level. She was chosen as the Unsung Heroine of 2012 by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women.  Jeanne was dedicated to her large extended family and was considered to be the "family caregiver".

Jeanne loved watching the Patriots with her brother, Joe, and his wife, Bette. She also loved playing board games, hosting parties, and traveling to Florida and Bermuda. 

Jeanne is survived by her brothers Francis Joseph Robbins and his wife Bette, of Douglas and William Robbins and his wife Paula, of Alabama; her brother-in-law Norman Girard; 11 nephews, 13 nieces, 15 grandnephews, 15 grandnieces, 2 great grandnephews and 7 great grandnieces. She is predeceased by her brothers, Earl Robbins and his wife Claire, and James Robbins and his wife Marjorie; and her sisters: Marie Girard, Barbara Gautreau and her husband Oscar, and Beatrice Robbins.
