Janet Lois Corriveau

June 20, 1945 — May 3, 2024

Manchester

Janet Corriveau passed away peacefully on May 3. She left behind a legacy shaped by family devotion, educational excellence and cultural exploration. Born in Galveston, Texas on June 20, 1945, she was the first-born daughter of Alphonse and Josephine (Kleczynska) Corriveau.

Janet was educated in the Manchester School system and was deeply devoted to her Catholic faith. A violinist in high school, she remained a lover of classical music, concerts, ballets and family music celebrations throughout her life. She was a magna cum laude graduate of University of New Hampshire and was a member of the Alpha Delta Kappa, an honorary society for educators, Community Concerts and the Manchester Garden Club.

Generations of third grade students at Manchester’s Green Acres School will fondly remember her Flag Day presentation, kilt –clad student sing-alongs/marches, and the newly-hatched ducklings she introduced for play in the puddles outside of her classroom window. Above all else, her students were kindly nurtured and consistently motivated to do their best; they inevitably emerged with a solid foundation in reading, writing and arithmetic. In addition to her love for her students, Janet prized the camaraderie of her school colleagues. 

Janet travelled extensively throughout the country and Europe. She planned multiple, unforgettable trips for her parents and siblings. She frequently travelled to Ireland to collect Belleek (Irish Parian china). She spent many summers in Poland to learn more about her Polish heritage through the Koscuisko foundation. Her passion for Polish art, music, crafts and history led her to learn the Polish language, to collect authentic Polish costumes and to conduct workshops to share her knowledge of Polish history and culture. 

Janet’s boundless generosity and loving care of her family and friends were in the manner of her mother and father. Be it flowers from her garden, cards for every occasion crafted with beautiful handwritten sentiments, treats and other surprises left on doorsteps for any and for all manner of family and friend gatherings, her time, talent and thoughtfulness shone through at every turn. 

Family members include sisters, Lynda Lubelczyk and Nancy Gorczyca; brothers, John Corriveau  and David Corriveau (predeceased in March 2024); nieces, Vanessa, Kerry and Aubrey; nephews , Joe, Jason, Neil and Alek; grandnephew, Mason; grandnieces Peyton, Emerson, Landry and Avery and cousins.
