Monique (Leclerc) Ferris, 87, of North Port, FL and formerly of East Hampton, CT, wife of the late Donald Ferris, died peacefully at home on April 26, 2023, surrounded by her loving son and daughter.  Monique was born in Sainte-Claire, Quebec, Canada, the daughter of the late Francois and Azilda (Dorval) Leclerc.  At the age of 6, Monique moved to New Britain, CT with her family and became a US citizen at the age of 12.  She worked at Tuttle & Bailey for several years before she decided to stay home to raise her two children.  She started working part-time at Pratt & Whitney while her children were in high school, eventually working full time and retiring at 55 from Pratt & Whitney.  After retirement, she traveled all over the world, with several close friends for many years, with the last trip traveling with her daughter to Europe in 2019 at the age of 83.  She also traveled to NYC several times a year to see Broadway shows and The Rockettes Christmas shows.  Monique enjoyed volunteering for several years at the Middlesex Hospital gift shop.  She was loved by the people she touched, including her family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and many friends.  She was very active with her friends, playing cards, going out for lunch, spending a few hours at the casino, going to the movies, or meeting some of her high school friends monthly for breakfast.  She enjoyed living in the warmth of Florida these last few years, sitting outside in the wintertime reading her newspaper, and rocking in her glider on the lanai.  Monique was a member of St. Patrick’s Church in East Hampton and was a member of several organizations.  Monique is survived by her two children, Ronald (Pamela) Ferris of Savannah, GA, and Donna Filler of North Port, FL, three grandchildren, Christopher (Sara) Ferris of Surprise, AZ, Amanda Rueda of Lancaster CA, and Athena Wagner of San Diego, CA, and five great grandchildren, Domynick, Aislynn, Aliyah, Jordyn, and Killian, and her brother, Adrien Leclerc.  She was predeceased by her sister, Lorette Simcic and her brothers, Claude Leclerc and Roland Leclerc.  Funeral services will be held Monday, June 26, 2023, with a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 AM at St. Patrick’s Church, 47 W.
