Marcelle Andrea Arroyo, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, died peacefully of natural causes on Friday, September 8, 2023 in Hooksett, NH.

Marcelle was born to Irene Cliche and Gerard Marcoux in Sainte-Edwidge-de-Clifton, Quebec on March 29, 1951. She moved with her family from Canada to the West Side of Manchester, NH in 1965. 

She later met Jose Arroyo and they married in 1971 at Sainte Marie Parish in Manchester, NH. Together, they raised four children and were devout Catholics. She was a devoted wife to Jose, who was predeceased in 1991. Following Jose’s passing, Marcelle selflessly dedicated her life to raising their children and provided a loving and caring home where they all continued to live and thrive throughout their childhood.

Marcelle was proudly employed with Quantic TRM in Bedford, NH as a certified solderer for thirty five years and retired in 2022. She loved to shop and she loved ice skating. She would often share memories of ice skating and playing hockey with her brothers on their farm.

Marcelle was the youngest daughter of fifteen siblings and is survived by her sisters Lorraine and Clemence, and brothers, Paul, Yvon, Claude, Jean, Gerald and Raynold. She was predeceased in death by her sisters Rene and Pauline and brothers Robert, Roger, Guy and Real.

She is survived by her son Marc and his wife Marina of Hooksett, NH, her son Kevin and his wife Iola of Hooksett, NH, her daughter Debbie and her husband Javier of Weare, NH and her daughter Kim and her husband Alex of Satellite Beach, FL.
