Veronica J. Fournier, 96, of Baldwinville, died peacefully, Wednesday, April 1, 2020, in Alliance Health at Baldwinville Nursing Home, after a long illness.
Born in Otter River on May 2, 1923, she was the daughter of the late Tadeus and Julia (Lahac) Piascik. She attended Templeton High School. She was an assembler employed by the former Heywood-Wakefield Company for several years until retiring in 1989. She previously worked for several other area furniture factories.
Veronica was a book worm who enjoyed reading anything she could get her hands on. She loved to work in her gardens. But the biggest part of her life and the time that she cherished the most was time spent with her family.

Arsenault and her husband Kevin of Gardner: two sons, Kenneth A. Fournier of Gardner, and Mark R.

She was predeceased by her husband of 44-years, Albert R. Fournier, who died in 1989; four sisters, Maryanna Howard, Alice White, Stella Koldys, and Sophie Piascik; two brothers, Chester and Raymon Piascik.
