July 7, 2019


Lorette V. (Larocque) Alegi, 81, of Taunton, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. She departed with dignity on her journey to heaven at her home on Sunday, July 7, 2019, after a long and courageous battle with lymphoma. She was married to her high school sweetheart Gilbert F. Alegi for sixty-one years.

Lorette was born in Taunton, the daughter of the late Theodore and Ida (Lafleur) Larocque. She began working as a punch key operator at Reed and Barton Silversmiths. Mrs. Alegi then raised her family and eventually resumed her working career as the "C" house secretary at Taunton High School, a position she held for twenty-one years. Lorette treasured her position, having the opportunity to guide students that sought her advice. Mrs. Alegi was a member of Saint Mary's Women's Guild and upon retirement, a member of the Weir Senior Citizens. Lorette was a loving mother and grandmother. Her greatest joy in life was being a part of their lives and accomplishments.

Lorette's family wishes to acknowledge the special and compassionate care that Massachusetts General Hospital and Hope Health Hospice provided.

Alegi and his wife Deborah of Raynham; two daughters: Joan Feeney and her husband Thomas of Norfolk; Karen Pineo and her husband Douglas of Taunton; seven grandchildren: Brandon and Abigail Alegi of Raynham; Emily, Kelly and Katie Feeney of Norfolk; Hailey and Lyndsey Pineo of Taunton; a twin sister and best friend: Lorraine Miller and her husband Jack of Taunton; a brother: Henry Larocque and his wife Jennifer of Raynham; along with several nieces and nephews.
