Louise B. (Belcourt) Bartholomew, wife of Robert “Bob” Bartholomew, died on April 30th, 2019 at Shoreline of Clinton – Memory Care Community after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s. Born in Meriden on August 31, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Joseph P. and Ella (Trudeau) Belcourt. She was a Meriden resident most of her life before retiring with her husband to Pottersville, NY for a quiet but active retirement for almost 20 years. Most recently she resided in Ivoryton, CT.

Louise graduated from Meriden High School in the class of 1950. Mrs. Bartholomew was a parishioner of both Holy Angels and St. Laurent Church and was a part of the Holy Angels Womens Club. Louise was in a singing group and enjoyed making shirret rugs. She was a quiet, soft hearted, constant presence in her children’s young lives. Louise was proud to be a house wife and mother. As her children grew into able young adults she worked outside the home at New Departure of Meriden, Clark Brothers Bolt Company of Plantsville, the Lane Construction Company of Meriden, and eventually owning The Picture Framer in Cheshire.

Besides her husband, she will be lovingly missed by her four children; Candace “Candy” Bialczak, Joe Bartholomew and his wife Gail, Robert A. Bartholomew II, and Christian Bartholomew and his wife Rose. She leaves behind eight grandchildren; Aimee, Abigail, Joel, Robert III, Ryan, Cariese, Matthew, and Nicholas. Louise also is survived by five great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her son-in-law Thomas Bialczak and her brother Peter Belcourt.

Friends and relatives are invited to attend a funeral service to be held on Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 at 11 a.m. at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 E. Main Street, Meriden, CT 06450. Burial will follow at St. Boniface Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home prior to the service from 9 to 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Louise’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Resource Center of Connecticut, Inc., 1261 South Main Street, Plantsville, CT 06479.

Marilyn Simon has memories of Louise that start with first days in school in Meriden. Bill Simon took care of the affairs of The Picture Framer preparing all tax returns and accounting records. The four of us had many pleasant visits together solving world problems over glasses of wine. Marilyn and Louise enjoyed season tickets at Long Wharf for many years.
Our condolences on your loss. Louise often expressed her desire to leave the world as a better place and she did just that in the years of life she was gifted with. We have art work on our living room wall painted for us by Candy with framing provided by
Louise. Memories abound whenever we look at it.
