Doris L. (Laprise) Aldieri, 85, of Bristol, beloved widow of Michael J. Aldieri, died on Tuesday (September 29, 2020) at Farmington Station Senior Living.
Born in Quebec to the late Willie and Beatrice (Houde) Laprise on April 15, 1935, she was one of ten children. Doris was a devout Catholic and longtime parishioner of St. Ann Church of Bristol, where she was a member of the Ladies of St. Ann Society. For twenty years she and her husband loved visiting their vacation home in Quechee, VT, where she might enjoy a round of golf and a glass of chardonnay. One of her proudest accomplishments was being the longest serving volunteer at Bristol Hospital, with 50 years of service.
Doris was the true matriarch of the Laprise family, and family meant the most to her, especially her grandchildren. Doris is survived by her sons: David Aldieri (Kristen) and Michael Aldieri (Carrie) both of Bristol; daughters: Sharon Crowley (Mike) and Doreen Rackliffe (David) both of Bristol; a brother: Dorsey Laprise of Bristol; sisters: Williette Hammond of Maryland, Francoise Poirier of Bristol, and Jinette Laprise of Canada; grandchildren: Sean and Maura Sweeney, Sarah Orefice, Andrew Dupont, Brian Rackliffe, Eric, Zachary, and Hannah Aldieri, Rachel and Abby Aldieri; great-grandchildren: Lilah Orefice, Colin Sweeney, Lily Peters, and Viviana Dupont; and many nieces and nephews.
