Mary “Betty” Goulet Obituary

Mary Elizabeth “Betty” (Doherty) Goulet of Salem, formerly of Acton, Belmont and Cambridge, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on February 2, 2024. Beloved wife of Robert. Loving mother of Kathleen (Chris) Garvin, Kristen (Jeff) Durand, Maureen (Michael) DeLeo, Bob (Amy) Goulet and Mark (Zach Oren). Sister of Virginia and Joseph Doherty and the late Jack Doherty. Devoted grandmother of 12 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren and predeceased by her granddaughter Megan Durand. Dear best friend of Fran Mulvey.

Betty met her husband Bob watching him play baseball at St. Peters Field in Cambridge. They have been together ever since and were married just shy of 65 years. She truly was the love of his life. In addition to her own kids Betty "mothered" many other lucky children in her home daycare for several years. When her own children went off to college she worked in the insurance industry for NRT (formerly Curtin Insurance) for 35 years. She adored her 13 grandchildren and cheered them on just like she had her own. You could find her on the sidelines of many games, at dance recitals and theater performances. She recently welcomed 4 great grandchildren who brought happiness during a challenging couple of years. Betty had a an amazing faith and was the true epitome of a strong Irish Catholic woman. We will miss her dearly and we will carry her strength and love with us always.
