CHARLTON - Delia A. (Beaudette) Groleau, 76, of Fountain Inn, South Carolina, died June 23, 2018, after a long battle with COPD. She was born to the late Arthur Beaudette and Josephine (Gallant) Beaudette.
Dee leaves her loving husband, Roland O. Groleau who she was married to for 57 years. They had four sons, Roland J. and his wife Tina of Thompson CT, Curtis A. of Dudley, Michael T. of Fountain Inn, SC, and Charles R. who passed away in 1993. She also leaves three grandsons, John R., Jonathan D. and Curtis Jr.; five great grandchildren; Branden, Jennifer, Landen, Rylee, and Ella; and many nieces and nephews. Over the past several years, Dee lived in Coolidge, Arizona, and Fountain Inn, South Carolina. She enjoyed the warmer weather and always said “I don’t miss that snow!”
Dee was the youngest child in a very large family. She enjoyed spending time with her siblings just chit chatting or going out to eat. She is survived by her sisters, Doris McDonald and Marie Hadley. She was predeceased by her sister Genevieve St. Cyr; and her brothers Albert, Roger, Arthur, Charles, Norman, Ronald and Robert.
Dee was a devoted mother and her boys were her world. When they were younger, she attended their baseball and football games of which there were many. As adults, she was always willing to lend an ear and help wherever she could. She stayed connected to each of her boys and her passing will be a great loss to her family. Dee now joins her son, Charles (Chucky), in heaven who was taken from us to early.
