Born in Haverhill on February 24, 1933, Mrs. Descoteaux was the daughter of the late Russell Stevens and Eileen (Bickford) Beaulieu.

Everyone who was fortunate enough to know Midge knew of her love for her family and friends. She had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed every moment of life, whether it was bowling in her early years, playing cards or celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with family and friends.
