Mae Ellen (Lavallee) Deslauriers, age 78, passed away on Monday afternoon, September 20, 2021 at Quaboag Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in West Brookfield.  Mae Ellen was born on February 11, 1943 in Ware, daughter of the late William J. Lavallee (d.1960) and Eunice A. (Ballard) Lavallee (d.2006).  She was raised and educated in Gilbertville, and was a 1961 graduate of the former Hardwick High School.  Mae Ellen enrolled in Brom's Beauty Academy of Cosmetology in Worcester after high school and earned a Beauty and Cosmetology Certificate. Mae Ellen was a homemaker for many years, raising her three children.  She was employed for many years as a school van driver for McCarthy & Sons School Bus Company. Mae Ellen enjoyed listening to Kenny Rogers music, concerts, visiting the ocean and spending time with her family.  She also enjoyed watching her granddaughters and spending as much time with them as she could.  She loved taking them on little road trips to visit the horses.   Mae Ellen leaves behind her children, her son, Christopher A. Deslauriers and his wife Leah, her daughters, Danielle Deslauriers, and Claudine Lang and her husband Scott.  Mae Ellen also leaves behind her two granddaughters, Hannah and Caitlin Lang, whom she adored and loved so much. She also leaves behind Dawn DuBois, who she could always count onto go out for a date of shopping and lunch. Mae Ellen also leaves her brothers,  William Lavallee and Richard Lavallee, and her sisters, Joyce Russell and Barbara Francis. Mae Ellen's family wishes to thank all those who touched her life during her stay at Quaboag.  To those who made her laugh, especially during the time of COVID, when her family could not be at her side.  Thank you for putting a smile on her face, as she would always love to joke around.  Mae Ellen's final wishes were to be cremated, with a private burial at the convenience of her family. Special thank you to the Cebula Funeral Home for taking care of Mae Ellen's arrangements.    Cebula Funeral Home of Ware is assisting her family with the final arrangements.  For more information and online guest book, please visit: .
