Eleanor Clark Lopes
Nov 08, 2018

Eleanor Clark Lopes passed away on November 8, 2018. Our mother's fondest memories, while living at her gramma Clarks house in Fairhaven, were with her sister and best friend Theresa. It was there by the ocean that they enjoyed going for rides in their father's row boat over to the Pine Pavilion to have a soda. She enjoyed helping gramma feed her chickens and listening to Dutchy Packard playing his banjo on the back porch.
Later in life she became a mother to Judy and Peter. Some of her best times where spent living down Sconticut Neck quahogging, this became her life long hobby which she enjoyed well into her 86 year. Mum liked nothing better than sitting on a rock after quahogging, cracking them open, eating her quahogs and occasionally pocketing a few cherry stones. Later in life she became a wife to Joe and mom again to Lisa which started a new chapter. Through the years mum worked at stitching mills in the city but her favorite job was working in Lanzonis Greenhouse, which she enjoyed for many years.
She had a green thumb for gardening and loved flowers. She tended her own gardens all her life and had strong opinions on what colors to plant! Summer trips to the Vineyard on the ferry through the years were some of her best times. Being a mother, was by far her greatest joy.
For the last 5 years Lisa was her caretaker and sidekick along with help from her grandson Robbie. Her nephew Richard always put a smile on her face with his wild antics too. Our mother had an enthusiasm for hot coffee and car rides that can only be described as epic. Mum touched many lives through the years, she always had a way of showing compassion and kindness. She also faced many challenges in her life and handled them with dignity and grace. She is and will always be our hero! Our mother will finally be with her son Peter, her husband Joseph A. Lopes, nephews, nieces and her mother and father. She leaves behind her daughters Judy and Lisa, her step-daughter Sharon and sister Theresa, brothers Ronnie and Mike, grandchildren Robbie, Nate, Sarah and Dante, great grandchildren McCayla and Abel, also son in law Army Veteran Bob Dupont. We would like to personally thank Peter's friend Raymond who since Peters passing, has sent her a card for her birthday and every holiday for the last 35 years. We would also like to thank her sister in law Joan for all her delicious meals she surprised mum with, one being her favorite, lobster rolls. Our family would also like to thank Dr. Amy Weigandt, Tobey Hospital, doctors, nurses and kindhearted patient observers. Charlton Memorial Hospital, doctors and nurses for their compassionate care of mum. Thank you also to A.R.A.W. And all the staff at the Fairhaven Senior Center and friends at the Social Day Program.

Denis Raymond Choquette, Jr.
Nov 07, 2018

Denis Raymond Choquette, Jr., 38, of Fairhaven, died Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at St. Luke's Hospital in New Bedford unexpectedly. He was the husband of Arianna MaryKay (Oliver) Choquette.
Born in New Bedford, Denis was the son of Denis R. Choquette, Sr. of Fairhaven, and Lorri Ann (Izdebski) Smith of Seekonk. He was a previous resident of Marion and Mattapoisett before moving to Fairhaven.
Denis was an auto body collision repair technician and worked for Barry Automotive Group in RI and most recently, Cape Cod Restorations in Cataumet.
Denis loved motorcycles and was a self-described "gearhead" who excelled in both automotive collision repair and motorcycle industries where his talents have been recognized for the past twenty years. While Denis has always exhibited a passion for fixing things that had been broken, whether a car or motorcycle, the real driving force behind that passion has always been to be able to provide for himself doing what he enjoyed.
When Denis began a family of his own, that driving force became his family. Denis deeply loved and cared for both his wife Arianna and his four children.
Denis was fiercely loyal to anyone he considered to be his family whether or not they were blood related. He derived great joy from helping others and was supportive any time he was needed whether he was asked to be there or not. Denis was also a prankster and loved nothing more than to be the instigator of some mischievous joke. Denis loved well, was loved greatly in return, and will be sorely missed.
Survivors include his wife Arianna; his children, Denny M. Choquette, Kara L. Choquette, Kylie E. Choquette, and Francis C. Choquette all of Fairhaven; his parents, Denis R. Choquette, Sr. and Lorri Ann Smith; his siblings, Kristen Buckles of Fairhaven, and Ryan Choquette of Wareham; his paternal grandfather, William Troiano of Bristol, RI; his maternal grandmother, Marjorie Izdebski of New Bedford, and his best friend, Christian Rachoetes.
His funeral will be from the Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, 2599 Cranberry Hwy., (Rt. 28), Wareham on Wed., Nov. 14, 2018 at 9 am followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Anthony's Church, Barstow St., Mattapoisett at 10 am. Interment will be private. Visiting hours will be Tuesday from 5 - 8 pm at the funeral home.

Eileen Corrigan Lonergan
Oct 31, 2018

Eileen Corrigan Lonergan, 52, died peacefully on October 31, 2018, surrounded by the love of family. Eileen is a remarkable mother to three remarkable girls and the best partner a husband could ever hope for. She will always be a beloved daughter, sister, and friend.
Eileen was exceptionally kind and smart. These qualities paired powerfully with a lightning-fast wit. To be with her was truly joyful. She had a quiet but powerful presence. She battled cancer fiercely, bravely, and with exquisite grace and good humor.
Eileen was born on August 24, 1966, and grew up in Saline, Michigan. She graduated from Michigan State University in 1988 with a degree in Advertising. In 1993, she married Eugene (Gene) Lonergan and their adventurous spirit carried them buoyantly, making homes in London (where the 'London Girls' were born), Singapore, and Hong Kong before settling in Marion, MA in 1999. Gene and Eileen recently celebrated 25 incredible years of marriage.
She was the G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time) mom and according to her daughters, she had only a hint of irony in her voice in her frequently repeated "I live to please" refrain. When it came to cooking (every single night), "Whatever you loved--that would be what she'd make." Lunches were packed (every single day) in a similar spirit. Many of her friends would say that they wanted to bottle whatever was going on at the Lonergan home because the parenting results were THAT spectacular. Eileen loved to volunteer. She spent numerous hours offering her time to Friends Academy, where the girls spent many years. She was often seen volunteering at the Beverly Yacht Club, CCD for St. Rita's Parish and at the Marion Public Library.
A friend from Junior High School said that even back in the days of their youth Eileen loved technology and could foresee the coming information age. Naturally entrepreneurial and visionary, she was proud to have built her own successful website design and marketing business. Her articles were published in in the U.S., Canada and the UK and she was named one of the 12 Woman to Follow by WordPress in 2016. Her clients glowed in testimonials about her creativity, coaching, and an uncanny knack for gently pushing them toward a better way.
Eileen was always on the go. Whether jogging with her golden retriever Rusty, trying to crush her Fitbit challenge group or on the Peloton alongside Gene, Eileen was nearly indefatigable. In March she completed a half-marathon in Philadelphia with Fiona. She remains, in perpetuity, the inaugural Bay Club Triathalon Champion.
She was predeceased by her father, John Corrigan. She is survived by her husband, Gene and their three daughters, Maura, Elizabeth and Fiona of Marion; her mother Barbara Corrigan of Marion; her sister Patricia Corrigan and her husband Edward Kelley of Melrose, MA and her brother Sean Corrigan of Guilford, CT; and beloved extended family and an army of friends who thought she was just the greatest thing ever.
Visiting hours will be held at the Saunders-Dwyer funeral home, 50 County Rd. Route 6, Mattapoisett on Monday, November 5th from 4pm-8pm. A memorial and celebration of life mass will be held on Tuesday, November 6th at 11 AM at Tabor Academy's Wickenden Chapel in Marion, MA.
In lieu of flowers, gifts in memory of Eileen Lonergan may be made to University of Massachusetts Memorial Foundation (UMMF) in support of her friend, Karl's cancer research in the Simin Lab. Gifts can be made online at or mailed to: Office of Advancement , UMass Memorial Medical Center , 333 South Street Shrewsbury, MA 01545
Checks should be made out to "UMMF - Simin Lab" and should note that the gift is in memory of Eileen Lonergan.
