06/06/23 – 20/01/22
Agathe Rondeau Goulet passed away on January 20, 2022 and is now in the company of our Heavenly Father.
She was born in Saint-Félix-de-Valois, Canada on June 06, 1923, to Delia and Pierre Rondeau.
Agathe grew up skiing, skating and hiking in the small town near Montreal, Quebec. Her love of outdoor activities would last and stay with her for the rest of her life.
Growing up, she was deeply influenced by the Catholic religion practiced by her family and also by the nuns living in the city. She spent much of her youth being taught at the local convent, where she learned the love of God and many life skills.
She married Gerard (Jerry) Goulet on August 21, 1950, and moved to West Seattle soon after, where she built her life around her family and her church. In 1957, they build the house where they will raise their 5 children. She loved the community, the parks, Alki and everything the area had to offer. She has worked at HUSKY Delicatessen for many years and for many who have tasted her, her potato salad cannot be beat! She stayed in her home until recently when she moved to an assisted living facility.
A devout Catholic, she was a faithful parishioner of Holy Rosary Church, attending services until she was no longer physically able.
Agathe was endowed with a multitude of artistic talents. She was a painter and excelled in sewing, embroidery, knitting and crocheting. She was also a wonderful cook and craftsman.
Always attentive mother and grandmother, her greatest pleasure came from her family and the time spent outdoors. Always on the move, you’d see her all over West Seattle. She enjoyed hiking, tennis, traveling and attending family sporting events. Summers were spent with her 5 young children camping in a canvas tent at Flaming Geyser Park in Black Diamond. Later in life, solo hikes would find her miles from her cabin on Anderson Island, searching for blueberries, wildlife and the beauty of nature all around. Much of the art she created was inspired by what she observed.
Predeceased by her husband Jerry, her sons John and René and her brother Gerard. He is survived by his daughter Ginette Correll (husband Tony), his son Robert (wife Terry) and his son Donald (wife Kathleen) as well as 5 grandchildren, Danielle, Zack, Brianne, Savannah, Jake and his great-grandchild -daughter Chloe.
A private service will take place at a later date.
