Liz Goulet Dubois, 55, of Hope died on Sunday August 14, 2022 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston with her family by her side. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of Stephen and Carol (DePetrillo) Goulet and the beloved wife of Eric Dubois, with whom she had just celebrated her 31st wedding anniversary.

Liz graduated in 1985 from Mount Saint Charles Academy. She then obtained her baccalaureate in 1989, at RISD. His career began in product and toy design. However, his real passion was writing and illustrating. After providing illustrations for several books and magazines part-time, she recently realized her dream of becoming a full-time children’s author and illustrator. The first book in a series, Duck and Cluck: This egg is mine!, was released earlier this year, with the sequel slated for release next spring. Her life’s work was something she enjoyed sharing with others, and she passed that passion on to her daughters.

Besides her parents and her husband, she is survived by her three loving daughters Audrey, Evelyn and Millie Dubois. She was the sister of Stephen Goulet and his wife Dawn, an aunt of Channing and Alden Goulet and Aurore Monseu, and the daughter-in-law of Jean-Marie and Doris Dubois. Liz was also the niece of Adele Barracca, Frank DePetrillo, Eleanor and TC Chadronet, Tom DePetrillo, Larry and Nancy DePetrillo, Linda DePetrillo, Judith Stracaluzzi, David and Jean DePetrillo, and Paul and Luanne DePetrillo. She was predeceased by her sister-in-law Valérie Dubois and her uncles Nick and Anthony DePetrillo.

His Catholic prayer service will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. at NARDOLILLO FUNERAL HOME & Crematory, 1278 Park Avenue, Cranston. His burial will be private. VISITING HOURS will be on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Liz Goulet Dubois Scholarship Fund, PO box 276, South Yarmouth, MA 02664-0276.
