Patricia “Pat” A. Fauvel, 75, of Manchester, NH passed away after a period of illness on February 9th, 2022. Born on December 16, 1946 in Lowell, MA to the late George R. & Anna (Driscoll) Bergholm, she would go on to marry her best friend Andre Fauvel, with whom she shared over 41 years of marriage.
Pat was raised and educated in Lowell, MA until she met Andre, who convinced her to move and spend the rest of her life with him. Many who knew Pat & Andre would say they were perfectly matched, as Andre brought joy and laughter to her life, and she kept him out of trouble and on track.
Those who had the privilege of knowing Pat will remember a kind, generous and caring woman who was a mother to many. Family was everything to Pat, but she extended her home and her love to anyone, whether they were family or not. Her caring nature fueled her career as a CNA for over 35 years, a career that she was very proud of her entire life.
Throughout her life, Pat loved camping and travelling, whether it was in Vermont, Maine, Canada or simply in her RV, she loved getting away with her family. She owned many adored pets as well, including her dogs Muffin, Nikki, Ariel, Holly and her beloved cat Apollo. Andre and her children will attest that she was an amazing cook who was always made enough to feed an army, as memories of her stuffed peppers, baked beans and meat pies will not be soon forgotten. Above all else, Pat loved her family immensely, and will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched.
Pat has now joined her parents in heaven. She is survived by her husband Andre Fauvel Sr.; daughter Laurie Gouley and her husband Duane; son Mike Desilets and his wife Jenn; son Andre Fauvel Jr.; grandchildren Jacob, Jared, Casey, Cameron, Makayla, Liam & Lucas; great-grandson Jackson as well as many extended family members and friends.
A memorial gathering for Pat will be held on Friday, February 18th from 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM with a service beginning at 10:30 AM at Phaneuf Funeral Homes, 243 Hanover St. Manchester, NH. She will be laid to rest at the NH State Veterans Cemetery immediately afterwards.
Donations in Pat’s memory can be made to the SATO heart rescue in Milford, NH.
