GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- Carrie L. (Nielsen) Lemieux, of Glen Rock, died on Saturday, March 25. She was 94.
Lemieux was a parishioner of St. Catharine Roman Catholic Church in Glen Rock since 1957. She was a member of the Glen Rock Garden Club, Valley Hospital Auxiliary and the Glen Rock Seniors Club.
She also worked in the "Pink Bank" in Glen Rock for 40 years, and she loved gardening, bird watching, listening to music and spending time with her family.
Lemieux was the grand marshal of Glen Rock's 2011 Fourth of July parade, as the Glen Rock Gazette reported. Its theme was "Glen Rock History," chosen to honor residents who'd lived there for at least half a century -- and she was the record-holder.
She is survived by her children, Monique Lemieux of Glen Rock, Maurice Lemieux and his wife Anne of Glen Rock, Claire Buchmann and her husband Gary of Wyckoff, and Louise Lemieux Vielee and her husband Robert of Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania; and grandchildren Nicolette, Danielle, Robert, Alyssa, Amanda, Marissa, Paige, Gretchen, Peter and Jacques.
Lemieux was preceded by her husband, Maurice.
Visitation will be from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m.on Wednesday, March 29, at the Feeney Funeral Home, 232 Franklin Ave., in Ridgewood. The funeral mass will be at 10 a.m. on Thursday at St. Catharine's, followed by interment in Christ the King Cemetery, in Franklin Lakes.
