The family of Elena Carachuelo, 86, of Goffstown are sad to announce that their wonderful and beloved mother passed away on January 21, 2023 at Hillsborough County Nursing Home after a short period of declining health.
She was born in Rocha, Uruguay on March 26, 1936. She and her family moved to Manchester in September of 1968, when their employer offered to relocate them to work in one of the last textile mills in the city. When the mill closed, she went to work for Kollsman Instruments for nearly 20 years. She retired from SCI Electronics.
Elena shared her house with various cats and dogs. She enjoyed gardening, reading and knitting and loved to go to the White Mountains to view fall foliage. She never got used to the long New England winters but never wanted to move away from New Hampshire.
She loved her family immensely and loved having everyone over for Sunday dinners.
She was predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Washington N. Carachuelo in 2008.
Elena is survived by two sons, William Carachuelo and Daniel Carachuelo, both of Goffstown.
There are no services planned. Memorial donations may be made to the Animal Rescue League of NH, 545 Route 101, Bedford, NH 03110.
Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory, Manchester is assisting the family with arrangements.
