Camille J. Babineau

May 4, 1927 — April 29, 2021

Billerica – Mr. Camille J. Babineau, of Billerica, formerly of Waltham, died on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln. He was 93.

Camille was born on May 4, 1927 in Grande-Digue, New Brunswick, one of nine children born to the late Edelbert and Laura (LeBlanc) Babineau. He immigrated to the United States in 1947 and became a lifelong Waltham resident.

During the Korean War he served as a corporal with the United States Army.

He and his late beloved wife, Maria, were devoted parishioners of Saint Joseph's Church in Waltham, then after its closing, Corpus Christi Church in Auburndale and at Sacred Heart Church in Waltham. Camille was also a longtime member of the French-American Victory Club in Waltham.

Until his retirement Camille worked for years as a meat-cutter, first at the Waltham Supermarket and in later years at the Star Market in Auburndale where he was the department manager.

He enjoyed life's simple joys . . . playing cards with friends, dance nights at the the F-A-V and summer trips 'home' to visit with family and friends in Grande-Digue and Cocagne, New Brunswick.

In addition to his wife, Maria D. (Bourque) Babineau, he is reunited with his siblings, the late Valmont Babineau, Robert Babineau, Eugene Babineau, Doris Ledger and Evelyn Ledger.

He leaves his children, Leonard Babineau of Chesnee, South Carolina, Daniel Babineau (Donna) of Grey Court, South Carolina, Paul Babineau (Carol) of Bona Vista, Newfoundland, Norman Babineau (Florence Bergmann) of Billerica, and David Babineau (Dina) of Billerica; his brothers, Aurele Babineau of Grande-Digue, New Brunswick and Edmund Babineau of Waltham, and his sister, Lodia Hebert of Grande-Digue, New Brunswick; eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and their families.

Family and friends will honor and remember Camille's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Monday, May 3rd from 4 to 7 p.m. His Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday at 10 a.m. in Sacred Heart Church, 311 River Street, Waltham. Burial will follow in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham.

To view Camille's Funeral Mass please visit at 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning, May 4th.

A note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love and support, give them a virtual hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in some places of worship may also be private.

Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
