Born in Gardner, Massachusetts, Carmelle and her family lived in Sherbrooke and Ville St-Pierre before moving to Milroy Avenue in Pointe-Claire, where her family lived for over 60 years. Carmelle spent her twilight years living at the Belvedere residence in Lachine, where she shared the company of many friends.
Carmelle had a successful career at Yellow Pages Group, where she blazed a trail for being among two of the first women in outside sales. A talented seamstress, Carmelle loved to make dresses for children. Her other hobbies included travel, skiing, playing piano, spending summers at the family cottage near Laurel, Qc, and most of all, playing bridge with her many friends.
