Waltham – Mrs. Marjorie A. (Vienneau) Vezeau, of Waltham, died on February 10, 2021 in Newton-Wellesley Hospital. She was 88 years old.
Marjorie was born in Waltham on August 10, 1932, the daughter of the late Joseph and Rose (Daigneult) Vienneau. She graduated from Waltham High School and was a life-long resident of the city. In 1950 she met a young Louis F. Vezeau at Hampton Beach. After a brief courtship the two were married in St. Joseph's Church on September 3, 1951. They made Waltham their home in which they would raise their three boys. Before her retirement she had worked for over forty years in the banking industry, starting out at Guaranty-First Bank and retiring from Bank of America.
She was outgoing by nature and she and Louie belonged to many organizations throughout the city. They were long active at Saint Joseph's Church where they helped out on almost every parish committee beginning with the drive to build the upper church in the 1950's. She and Louie worked bingo, helped to serve coffee and donuts after 8:30 Masses and worked on the 1000-A-Month committee.
Traveling was one of their passions and they were able to explore New England, the country and much of Europe. They took many cruises to the Caribbean and visited Ireland and almost every country on the Continent. Trips to Alaska, Hawaii and Canada were among their favorites.
She was the beloved wife of the late Louis F. Vezeau and mother of the late Kenneth J. Vezeau and is survived by her sons, Stephen P. Vezeau (Karen) of Waltham and Michael E. Vezeau (Diane) of Waltham; her grandson, Thomas W. Vezeau (Kristen) of Waltham and is also survived by nieces and nephews.
She was the sister of the late Alma Vienneau, Marie Alberta Sletterink and Ernest Vienneau.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – 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, support and a verbal 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 to the venue where they are held 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 many places of worship will 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.
Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.
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.
