June 15, 1921 ~ September 13, 2021 (age 100)


Our mother, Lucille Irene (Charron) Potamianos, 100, passed away peacefully in Manchester on Monday, September 13, 2021. Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island an only child of the late Alfred J. Charron and Irene B. (Marion) Charron on June 15, 1921, she was a graduate of Pawtucket High and Katherine Gibbs College, and worked many years for the American Mathematical Society, Providence, and the National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Upon starting her family, she moved to Manchester and began her second career teaching typing at St. Bridget's School and the Adult Continuing Ed programs held at Manchester High School.  Never one to be idle, Lucille co-owned Custom Photo Lab in East Hartford  and worked alongside her spouse at many photography events including proms, Waterford Speedway, and other venues. You could count on her to assist at the yearly St. Bridget Bazaar and later volunteering for over 25 years at Manchester Memorial Hospital; she was your coffee lady! A selfless, independent, and generous woman, kind and good natured with a healthy dose of good humor. Her determined spirit and feisty attitude gave her a remarkable perseverance for life’s challenges. We'll miss you Mom.

Lucille leaves three children Charron (Ron) Daigle, Paul (Melissa) Potamianos and David (Christina) Potamianos and two granddaughters Megan and Jennifer. She was a long-time devoted communicant of St. Bridget' s Church.
