Manchaug- Yvette M. (Lapointe) Picard, 84, passed away on August 5, 2020 at home after a brief illness, surrounded by her family. She was predeceased by her beloved husband David J. Picard Jr. who passed away in 2019.

She is survived by four children and ten grandchildren: Philip Picard, his wife Joyce, and their daughters, Rochelle and Katrina; Marie Craig, her husband Roger, and their children, Matt Giorgio and his wife Carolyn, Abigail, Sophie and David; Michele Picard; Celeste Fronczak, her husband Michael, and their children, Brandon, Brianna, Katherine and Kristina.  

Yvette was born on September 3, 1935, the daughter of Eva M. (Poudrier) Lapointe and Henry H. Lapointe, and grew up in North Uxbridge, MA. Yvette graduated from Good Shepherd School in Linwood, St. Mary’s High School in Milford and received her bachelor’s degree from Worcester State University. She met David, the love of her life, at the former Whitin Machine Works, and after their marriage made their home in Manchaug. Yvette worked for the United States Postal Service for many years as a postmaster in Linwood, Northbridge and Sutton MA. She used her considerable management skills in operating a farm stand along with her husband and children and took great pride in providing fresh produce to the community and to local markets.  She was active in the community and participated in activities at St. Anne’s and later St. Denis parishes.

  After her retirement, she and David traveled extensively, visiting places throughout Europe and the US. Yvette lived for her husband, children and grandchildren. Everyone who entered their home was considered family, and gatherings were filled with love, laughter, and many, many desserts.

Her funeral will be privately held at St. Denis Church. Due to the pandemic, there will be no calling hours, and the funeral mass will be private, for immediate family only. All are welcome to attend the burial on Saturday August 8 at 11 AM in St. Denis Cemetery, 62 Manchaug St., Douglas. Donations in Yvette’s memory may be made to: Waters Farm Preservation, Inc., 53 Waters Rd, Sutton MA, watersfarm.org.

My sympathy goes out to all of you, Marie, Michelle and Phillip. My niece Darlene (Ernie's daughter) let me know of your mother's passing. Know that she is with her beloved David, her Mom and Dad, Doris and all those she was so close to, and I am sure others that are unknown to me. I am familiar with losing someone so dear, as my husband Walter passed away 2 years ago on July 20, 2018. Love, prayers and God Bless. (Aunt) Lorraine8

I knew David and Yvette for over three decades as I cared for Dave. She was the most wonderful, caring, kind and patient wife. They lived for travel and the discussions always centered on family, etc and the next trip. Dave and I meandered through many health related situations and the team of Dave and Yvette were a constant. Practical and warm. We discussed everything through. There is a new concept in medicine called "shared decision making". Well, we did that for decades, the three of us. They trusted me and I trusted them to always be on top of things and be practical and forthright. I'd do anything for them and i was shocked when i read the obituary this morning. A truly great woman! One of the best in my view and I have missed them since Dave couldn't be managed at home but i tried to keep in touch with Yvette. When everyone complains about modern health care and all its problems, and there are many, the relationship I, like many others, had with these two exceptional individuals makes it all worth while.

To the family, I wish you the best. You had a great pair here and I'm certain they are preparing their next trip as we speak.

Best wishes.

Phil and Family,

Loved ones are like stars even when you can't see them you know they are always there. A memory lasts forever and will never die, true loved ones stay together and never say goodbye. Yvette, thank you for sharing your smile and grace.
