Janet Marchessault Obituary

Ware - Janet H. (Gulczynski) Marchessault left us to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, at the age of 83.


Janet was born in Webster, Mass., on April 27th, 1940, the daughter of Joseph and Rose (Bachand) Gulcyznski.  She moved to North Brookfield when she was seven, and later worked at the Ware Shoe Mill where she met her soulmate, Ralph.  Ralph and Janet were married for 62 years and had five children, Jeffrey, Daniel, Tracey, Sherry, and Keith.


When Janet wasn't taking her children to band, soccer, or football practice, she was always working on crafts projects with others – quilting, crocheting, and painting her favorites.  She was the life of every party she went to and loved to dance.


As her children left her 40 Eagle Street "nest", she continued her service to others driving the Ware PVTA bus for years.  She and Ralph spent their later years exploring the country in their RV with their dog, Dakota.


Janet leaves behind her husband Ralph, her children Jeff and his wife Michelle, Tracey, Sherry, and Keith as well as two grandchildren, Anna and Danielle. 


A calling hour for Janet will be held from 9:30 to 10:30AM on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, in the Charbonneau Funeral Home, 30 Pleasant St., in Ware. Her Funeral Mass will follow the calling hour, and be held at 11AM in All Saints Church, 17 North St., in Ware.  Burial will be in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cemetery following the mass.
