WOODBURY – Angeline A. Deschamps, 82, of Woodbury, passed away on Wednesday, July 29. Angeline was born on August 9, 1937, to Henry and Rosa (Meunier) Patoine. She grew up in Walden with her 15 siblings and later married Louis Deschamps on August 12, 1961. Together they raised their four children in Woodbury.


Angeline could often be found in her flower and vegetable gardens and turned her garden harvests into delicious meals. She was a woman of many, resourceful skills and among them were her braided rugs and cozy blankets. She had a love for life that was reflected in everything she did and considered her family her greatest accomplishment.

Angeline was predeceased by her parents, husband Louis in 2018, grandson Justin Weston, her brothers Leo Paul, Henry, Norman, Fernand, Lawrence, and Victor. She is survived by her children Annette Rosa Deschamps (and Jeff Strock), Lisa O. Deschamps (and Carl French), Ronald Louis Deschamps, Peter Henry Deschamps (and Samantha). She also leaves behind grandchildren Shaun Deschamps, Josh Backman (and Cisha), Renee, Kerri, Natalie, Hillary, and Sophia Deschamps, as well as 14 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Angeline is also survived by her siblings Marguerite LaBree, Clement, Bernard (and Cecile), Frank (and Elsie), Guy (and Millie), Theresa Rayta (and Don), Lucille Keene, Denise Adams (and Wendell), and Andre, as well as sisters-in-law Winifred and Kathryn.

A Funeral Mass will be held at a later date at St. Norbert’s Church in Hardwick. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family.
