Marianne A. (Proulx) LaCroix

Marianne A. (Proulx) LaCroix, 81, a resident of East Bridgewater, died peacefully at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton on Saturday, September 9, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.  She was the wife of Eugene E. LaCroix for 54 years. Daughter of the late Leo O. and Eva E. (Yannone) Proulx, she was born and raised in Brockton. Marianne was a graduate of Brockton High School (Class of 1960) and North Adams State College (Class of 1964). She was a lifelong resident of Brockton until she moved to East Bridgewater in 2004. An elementary school teacher for over thirty years, Marianne started her elementary school teaching career in Easton Public Schools before teaching at then St. Edward’s School in Brockton for 25 years; she retired in 2007. Marianne was a past president of the Sacred Heart School Guild, a longtime CCD teacher at Sacred Heart Church in Brockton, and a member of the College Club of Brockton. She enjoyed traveling, cooking, Boston sports, shopping, and ceramics - but her greatest joy was spending time with her family.

In addition to her husband Gene, Marianne is survived by her children, Christopher LaCroix and his wife Mary of Vorhees, NJ; Caitlin Luther and her husband Scott of Bridgewater; and Luke LaCroix, EdD of San Diego, CA. She has five grandchildren: Brielle Luther, Blake Luther, Colby Luther, Grace LaCroix, and Christopher LaCroix, Jr. She was the sister of Terese O’Connor and her husband Paul of Brockton. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
