Dorothy Fluet

Dorothy G. Fluet of 75 Moodus-Leesville Road, Moodus [East Haddam], CT died peacefully at Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford, CT on July 2 after a brief illness.

She was born in Thetford Mines, Province of Quebec on Feb. 8, 1916, the only child of Hilaire Gregoire and Marie Anne Catherine (Poisson) Gregoire.

Mrs. Fluet was privately tutored and then attended the Dominion College of Canada and White’s National College and was Diplomate, magna cum laude, in Early Childhood Education. She also held the Diplomate in Music and Administration.

Mrs. Fluet taught on the primary school level for 16 years and was principal of an elementary school in Thetford Mines in the Province of Quebec with over 400 students. She took special interest in primary education all her life and offered assistance to Saint Joseph School in North Grosvenordale from 1983 to 1989. She especially enjoyed helping students in need.

Mrs. Fluet was an accomplished pianist and often accompanied her father in public concerts in Canada.

Later in life, she pursued a course of study leading to certification as a Nursing Assistant granted by the state of New Hampshire.

In 1954, she married Paul L. Fluet, then owner of a dry cleaning business in Thetford Mines. The family immigrated to the United States in 1958 and first settled in Haverhill, Mass.

In 1969, the family moved to North Hampton, New Hampshire. Mr. Fluet died in 1980. One of her great joys was the ordination of her only son Father Gregoire J. Fluet to the Roman Catholic priesthood for the Diocese of Norwich in 1982.

In 1983, Mrs. Fluet moved to Putnam, CT. In 1998 she chose to move to Moodus and make her home with her son at Saint Bridget of Kildare Rectory.

She was especially happy to be able to join the celebration of her son’s 25th anniversary of ordination in 2007.

In later life, Mrs. Fluet enjoyed being a part of Saint Bridget Parish and visiting with parishioners.

She loved knitting. She also remained an avid reader and followed current events.

She very much enjoyed a second home and summers at Old Colony Beach in Old Lyme.

On September 24, 2005, at the recommendation of Bishop Michael R. Cote, Mrs. Fluet was named a Lady of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, a Papal Knighthood, the honors bestowed by His Eminence Edward Cardinal Egan at Saint Patrick Cathedral in New York.

She leaves her only son, Father Gregoire J. Fluet, pastor of Saint Bridget of Kildare, and nieces and nephews by her husband. She also leaves her “adopted grandchildren” Sarrah, Andrew, Rebecca, Michael, Therese, and Bernadette Mierzejewski, as well as their family.

She leaves close friends including the Dodd, Murphy, Colon and Talbot families of Moodus/East Haddam, the Lajoie and Kapitulik families of North Grosvenordale, and many other dear friends.

A Solemn Funeral Mass was celebrated in the presence of Bishop Michael R. Cote, the Bishop of Norwich, by her son Father Gregoire J. Fluet on Thursday, July 8 at 10:30 a.m. Burial took place in the family plot, next to her beloved husband, in Saint Bridget of Kildare Cemetery in Moodus, CT.

Donations in her memory may be made to Saint Bridget of Kildare Church, P.O. Box 422, Moodus, CT 06469. Please remember her in your good prayers and Masses.
