Norfolk – Mrs. Lucienne M. Joubert, 42, of 183 Wallace Road, suddenly passed away Saturday afternoon, August 17, 2013 in the emergency room at Massena Memorial Hospital.

Lucienne was born November 5, 1970 in Massena, the daughter of the Guy and Kathleen O’Reilly LaPlante. She attended Massena Central schools and later achieved her GED. In addition, she took two years of nurse training at BOCES.

On November 8, 1986, she married John J. Joubert, Sr. in Massena. In celebration of their 25 year anniversary, they were reunited in marriage at the Church of the Sacred Heart with Rev. Donald Manfred celebrating.

Lucienne once worked at the Highland and St. Regis Nursing Homes in Massena. She also worked at Big Lots for a short time before going to work at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino, where she was a carver in the restaurants. She was a communicant of the Church of the Sacred Heart.

Lucienne enjoyed camping, crocheting, knitting, reading and listening to country music. Perhaps her greatest enjoyment was the precious time she spent caring for her family, especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her loving husband, John; her children, John Jr. and Katie Joubert of Norfolk, Alyssa Joubert of Norfolk and Ronald Joseph and Megan Joubert of Massena; her four precious grandchildren, Zackery, Collin, Carter, and Alina; her parents, Guy and Kathleen LaPlante of Lousivlle; her paternal grandfather, Lucien L. LaPlante of Massena; and her father-in-law, Ronald Johnson of Norfolk.

Lucienne is also survived by her sister, Angel LaPlante of Louisville; her brother, Patrick LaPlante of Massena; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was predeceased by her mother-in-law, Pauline Joubert, in 1993.

Friends may call at the Donaldson Funeral Home, Massena, Tuesday 6-8 PM.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday 12:00 noon at the Church of the Sacred Heart, with Rev. Donald J. Manfred celebrating. Cremation will follow.
