Sister Solange Poutré

November 25, 1929 - May 7, 2014

LITTLETON, N.H. — Sister Solange Poutré, FCSCJ (Sister Marie-Germain), a Daughter of the Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, died after several months' illness, on May 7, 2014, at Mount Sacred Heart Provincial House Convent, Littleton, N.H., at the age of 85.

Solange Poutré was born Nov. 25, 1929, in Troy, Vt. She was the daughter of Alcide Poutré and Almida Choquette. Solange Poutré professed her vows with her Religious Congregation on Aug. 1, 1948. During her 66 years of religious profession, Sister Solange served in various missions in Newport, Burlington, St. Johnsbury, and Lyndonville, Vt.; Champlain and Rochester, N.Y. Portland, Maine; Colebrook, Whitefield, and Littleton, N.H.

Sister Solange was a dedicated educator in schools and religious education resource centers for many years, turning to the nursing profession in 1980, and more recently as a volunteer for charitable organizations as well as hospitality for groups seeking to make spiritual retreats or meet for planning their benevolent organizations' activities. In July, 2013, due to her health, Sister Solange joined her Sisters at Mount Sacred Heart in Littleton. She was known for her spirit of generosity and diligent work ethic, and would enthusiastically support worthy causes. Her ready sympathy and sense of compassion made her a good advocate when someone needed practical help for surmounting their difficult personal or family circumstances.

Sister Solange was predeceased by her parents and several relatives, including six sisters and brothers, R^al, Fernand, Sister Carmelle, Hermance, Gervais, and Germain.

She is survived by three brothers and one sister, Fabian (and Beverly) of Newport, Vt., Jean-Guy (and Marielle) of Plattsburgh, N.Y., Rejeanne (and Paul McGee) of Point Claire, QC, Denis (and Judy) of Venice, Fla.; many nieces and nephews; and her Sisters in the religious community.

Memorial donations in Sister Solange's name may be addressed to: Daughters of the Charity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, 226 Grove Street, Littleton, NH 03561.
