Northbridge- Marlene S. (Majeau) Brochu, 79, passed away at her home on Tues. Jan. 16, 2018. Marlene is survived by her loving husband of 28 years, Ernest Brochu, who brought much joy and happiness to her life.

She was loved and adored by her 2 daughters, Sandy Monfredo and her husband John of Worcester, and Karen Bodamer and her husband Scott of Charlton; Ernie’s children whom she loved like her own, Darlene Burgess and her husband Ken and his daughter Laurie, and Kevin Brochu and his wife Saru; 3 grandchildren Cameron, Delaney, and Christopher; 3 sisters Delma McQuade of Whitinsville, Gloria Bolduc of Grafton, and Linda Murray and husband Gary of Sutton; 3 brothers Glenn Majeau of Whitinsville, Donald Majeau and wife Barbara of Whitinsville, and Raymond Majeau and wife Elaine of Douglas; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers Joe and Roger Majeau.

Born on December 6, 1938, she was daughter of the late Alfred and Emelda (Tellier) Majeau and grew up in a very large family in Northbridge. She attended Northbridge High School and earned her GED. She worked throughout her life to provide for her 2 children, and with all they needed, and raised them in a loving home. Her favorite job was taking care of her grand-nephew and niece when they were young. On July 1, 1989 she married the love of her life, Ernest and made their home in Northbridge. They enjoyed eating out frequently, music, and watching sports on TV. Above all, Marlene’s huge family was her passion, she deeply loved all her children and grandchildren, and they spent as much time together as possible. She enjoyed watching Cameron play baseball, golf, and the saxophone, Delaney onstage and singing, and her visits with her grandson Christopher. They were her life.
Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday in the family and everyone gathered to eat, talk, play cards, sing, and dance all night. It was a tradition that lasted nearly 50 years. Most recently, Sunday morning was a time to gather with her siblings to drink coffee, eat pastry, and more importantly, laugh. It warmed her heart. She will be dearly missed.

Marlene’s Funeral Mass will be held on Fri. Jan. 26 at 11 a.m. in St. Patrick’s Church, 1 Cross St., Whitinsville. Burial will follow in St. Patrick’s Cemetery. Calling hours will be held Thurs. Jan 25 from 5-7 p.m. in Jackman Funeral Home, 12 Spring St. Whitinsville. To leave a condolence message for her family please visit:
