OGUNQUIT - Joanne N. Hackett, 86, passed away peacefully June 27, 2013, in Ogunquit. She was born Aug. 7, 1926, and raised in Caribou by her parents Emma and Sylvio Blanchette.
The Guest Book is expired.
In 1948 she married Anthony "Tony" Hackett. Together they raised five children in Caribou. They, along with Tony's brother, Mike, and Joanne's sister, Rena, were the owners of A&M Hackett Wholesalers. Tony passed away in 1979 and Joanne became the matriarch of the family. She lived in Naples, Fla., from 1992 until 2011 when she moved to Ogunquit. She was the glue that held her family together. A vibrant woman, who loved reading, cooking, traveling, playing Scrabble and staying in touch with her many relatives and friends. She enjoyed a full life with loving family and friends.
She will be deeply missed by her children, Carole, Steven, Debra, Richard and partner, Bill, and Mark and wife, Carol; and grandchildren, Matt, Austin and Anna. Mom, you will forever be with us in the joy that you brought to our lives.
A service will be held later this summer at Holy Rosary Church, Caribou. Please donate to the
in her memory.
