Obituary

Yvette Lemire, 97, passed away on April 25, 2019 at the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital after a brief illness. Born in Dover, NH on February 7, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Alphonse and Mabel (Morgan) Noel. Yvette's husband, Edward B. Lemire, preceded her in death in 1983.

Raised and educated in the Dover, NH area, Yvette moved to Manchester in 1957. She and her husband Bert owned and ran the American Upholstering Company for many years. Yvette was an excellent seamstress, often helping at the shop when there was a need. She very much enjoyed being a homemaker and host, often opening her home to family and friends. Many cherished memories were also made at her home in York Beach, Maine, where she spent her summers for thirty years. Yvette had a kind and giving heart. As matriarch of her family, she was a devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

Yvette is survived by her sons, Patrick Cragin and James Cragin and his wife Johanne; her grandchildren, Mary Jane Merritt, Jamie Cragin, Kate Stone, Michael Cragin, Kevin Cragin and Craig Blanchard; as well as twelve great grandchildren. Yvette was pre-deceased by her daughter JoAnn Blanchard; her brothers Antonio, Arthur, Raymond and Alphonse Noel; her sister Rita Joncas; and her grandson, Christopher Cragin.
