Lorraine I. "Killer" Nault (Courtemanche)

DRACUT, MA - Lorraine I. "Killer" Nault (Courtemanche), 84, died peacefully, Tuesday, July 17th, at Northwood Rehabilitation & Health Care Center, in Lowell, MA. She was the beloved wife of the late Roger (Joe) Nault, who died in 1969.

Lorraine was born in Lowell, on February 7th, 1934, a daughter of the late Alice (Ethiêr) and Bartelemie Courtemanche. 

Beginning in 1973, Lorraine worked at St. Joseph's Hospital for 20+ years until she retired.

She will be remembered as an active member of her community; she was a member of Dracut's senior citizens and a volunteer at C.T.I. Lorraine was also an avid bowler, frequenting Brunswick and Park Place Lanes, where she earned the nickname "Killer". She spent the past decades of her life attending her grandchildren’s sporting events, birthdays, and weddings, never wanting to miss out on anything. In her free time, she enjoyed watching and cheering on the Red Sox.

Lorraine is survived and will be deeply missed by her children, Priscille and her husband Rick Masse of Dracut, and Rene and his wife Diana Nault of Nashua, NH; grandchildren, Derek, Brian, and Nichole Masse, Katie Thibault, Pauline Soucy, Jeffrey, Joseph, and Michaela Nault; sister-in-law, Anna Courtemanche; 10 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
