Adele Dorothy (Andary) Goupille, 92, of Midway Drive, Negaunee Township, passed away peacefully Friday afternoon, December 28, 2018 at the Trillium House in Marquette in the care of her loving family and UP Home Health and Hospice.

Adele was born October 13, 1926 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to Elias J. ‘Ely’ and Marina Andary and graduated from Loretto High School, Class of 1942. Following graduation, she worked as an executive secretary for the Civil Service which brought her all over the world, including Egypt, Lebanon, and various places in Europe. In 1959, she joined her husband in owning and operating Rudy Goupille & Sons, which she did until her passing.

Mrs. Goupille was a member of St. Paul Catholic Church, Negaunee. In her spare time, she enjoyed meeting with her friends at the Beef-A-Roo following Mass, was an avid Detroit Tigers, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Red Wings fan. She fondly remembers her mom hosting the Red Wings for dinner at their home in the Soo during training camp. Her favorite pastime though, was following her sons and grandchildren’s sporting careers. She was affectionately known as the ‘Godmother’ in many local body shops.

Surviving are her three sons: Art and Rudy (Colleen) Goupille, both of Negaunee Township, and Richard (Andy) Goupille of Temperance, Michigan; her sister, Sadie (Frank) Atkinson of Sault Ste. Marie; six grandchildren: Hailey, Ely (Katelyn Omberllo), Rudy (Courtney Finnila), Airman 1st Class Dustin (Tessa Jazdzyk), Graham (Madeline Schmidt) and Drew Goupille; special friends and caregivers: Sharon Schilling, Pauline Argall and Jeannie McGahey; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Rudolph A. Goupille in 1987; two brothers: Tony and Paul Andary; and three sisters: Genevieve Schwartz, Mary Wood and Martha Shawhan.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, January 2nd at St. Paul Catholic Church with Rev. Larry Van Damme officiating. Burial will be in Northland Chapel Gardens. The family will greet relatives and friends from 10:00 am until the time of Mass at 12:00 noon. A luncheon will follow in the St. Paul Gymnasium. Honorary pallbearers will be Howard, Mike and Jim Wood, Paul, Ely, Mike and Tony Andary, Tim Atkinson and Joe Shawhan. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to St. Paul Catholic Church or the Trillium House, Marquette.

The family would like to thank Rev. Larry Van Damme for the numerous visits and prayers shared with Adele.

Rich, Art, Rudy and family
My sincere sympathy to you and your family. Your Mom was very nice to all. From the days of playing freshman sports in high school to the celebration of the season at the Villa Capri for the entire team was special and it was because of your Mom and Dad that the team went to the Villa Capri. When we were at Ferris and your Mom and Dad would visit and it seemed like they would take half of the dorm floor to Pondarosa for dinner.
What was special about your Mom is that she took time to talk to us as kids. Whether at your home or at school. I do not recall many parents coming to visit at Ferris, but I remember your Mom and Dad coming and often. I am so sorry for your loss, Ms. Goupille was a great lady!
God Bless,
Mark Trewhella

Rudy and Family,
Our deepest sympathies on the death of your mom. Whenever I think of hockey and the boys, I think of your mom, Naults, Villas, and my parents and the many great memories! May your many fond memories help you through this sad and difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless!!

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your mother. We never met in person but we had a professional relationship for over 30 years. I worked for Lindbergs and we at the office knew who kept the Goupelle operation running so well. If there was ever a problem, one call to Adele would straighten every thing out.
I was amazed to read of all of the life experiences she had. Truly a role model for women today.
A life well lived!
