Tribute & Message From The Family


Mary Lou (Misluck) Thibodeau, age 79, beloved wife of Norman Thibodeau, passed away on October 16, 2021 of natural causes. She was born in Bristol, CT, and moved to Florida in 1972 with her husband and three children. She was predeceased by her mother, Mary Rivers Misluck, her father, Samuel Misluck, her brother Samuel Misluck, brother Arthur Misluck, her sister Joan Brunet, and her sister Barbara Brunet. She leaves behind one sister, Dora (Misluck) Pich.

She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Norman Thibodeau. She is also survived by her son, Stephen Thibodeau (wife Rebecca), and daughters Catherine Thibodeau Lawton (husband Randy) and Wendy Thibodeau Pledger (husband Craig). She also leaves behind two grandchildren whom she helped raise, Zachary Thibodeau Lawton and Sydney Lawton, and many nieces and nephews in Bristol, CT and Van Buren, ME.

She will be dearly missed by her mall-walking group and all who knew her for her sense of humor, her baking and cooking skills, her gardening, and her puzzle-making. She and Noman could be seen holding hands wherever they went. Many people commented on how cute they were together. If you knew them you would know that after 60 years, they were still on their honeymoon.

My deepest condolences and prayers are being lifted for your family.

I have many fond memories and will cherish the times shared with her during my marriage.

I learned a lot from her: cooking, sewing and gardening tips. She had many talents. She was a beautiful loving person and was totally devoted to her family as they were her world. Norman and Mary Lou were like two peas in a pod and inseparable.

It’s with a heavy heart I say goodbye.

Lifting prayers for the family and even more for Norman.
