Mildred Ann ‘Millie’ (Baxter) Levasseur

Mildred Ann ‘Millie’ (Baxter) Levasseur, 99, a lifelong Lowell resident, passed away peacefully, Monday, May 16, 2022, at High Pointe Hospice House. She was the beloved widow of the late Joseph V. Levasseur who died in 1971.

Born in Lowell, February 23, 1923, the daughter of the late John T. Baxter and the late Mary A. (Hession) Baxter, she attended St. Patrick Grammar School, and graduated from Lowell High School with the Class of 1940. Always wanting to further her knowledge, she continued her studies at Merrimack College.

Millie made her home in the Highlands section of the city. She was a devout Catholic and a lifelong communicant of St. Margaret of Scotland Parish. She worked as an Administrative Secretary for the United States Government in Bedford, retiring at age 65 after many years of service.

She was a member of the St. Margaret of Scotland Parish Crafters and the National Association of Retired Federal Employees, Chapter 360, and well into her 90s she was their newsletter editor.

Throughout her life, Millie was loyal, selfless and dedicated to her family. She had many interests and enjoyed traveling, reading, sewing and keeping her mind sharp playing Tetris and Sudoku. She cherished the time spent with her family, and particularly enjoyed annual family vacations at Seabrook Beach. Proud of her Irish heritage, she held dual citizenship in Ireland and the US.

Her survivors include her four children, Joseph Levasseur and his wife, Sharon Fisher, of Hampstead, NH, James Levasseur and his wife, Norma, of Lowell, Joanne McCarron and her husband, Timothy, of North Chelmsford, and John Levasseur of Lowell; her beloved four grandchildren, James Levasseur and his wife, Katie, of Methuen, Michael Levasseur and his wife, Ashley, of Plaistow, NH, Danielle Gile and her husband, Conan, of Sandown, NH, and Shela Lemieux and her husband, Corey, of Sandown, NH; her eleven great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
