Frances M. (Price) Guillemin, a long-time resident of East Hampton, CT, was born on August 15, 1934, in Saint Johns, New Brunswick, Canada. She was the third of three children born to the late Claude W. Price and Gertrude E. (Hock) Price. She died on January 20, 2024 (age 89), after a number of years with Dementia.
After spending her first few years in Canada where her father was able to find work, the family moved to Middletown, CT. She became a US citizen at age 6, covered under her Father’s Naturalization process. In the late 1930’s, the family moved to East Hampton where she resided until the last 2 1/2 years of her life when she was in the care of Salmon Brook Rehab and Skilled Nursing in Glastonbury, CT.
Frances was educated in the East Hampton School System, graduating in the class of 1952, She worked for CT Mutual and Gong Bell, loved going roller skating or bowling, and had many friends. A chance meeting in a Middletown Coffee Shop introduced her to Francis E. Guillemin (aka Jerry), USN, on his way home to New Jersey from the Naval Base at Quonset Point, RI. They married on July 3, 1955, and were together for almost 55 years until his death in 2010.
In 1968, she started working at the Center School Cafeteria as a cook, a job she stayed in until she turned 80 in 2014. At that time, she retired as the Oldest Town of East Hampton employee and the longest tenured through the Board of Education.
Frances was an active member of the Women’s Auxiliary of the Fowler Dix VFW Post 5095 for many years. She was also an active bowler for many years at the Kick Back and Bowl’s One Night Out league.
