Marie Cecile Lucille Yvonne Theresa Dion Houghton, of Thompson passed after losing her battle with dementia on December 4, 2020 at her home in Thompson, in which she lived a healthy 89 years. She was born in Danielson, CT on September 11, 1931, the daughter of the late Arsene and Clara (Leduc) Dion.  She was the beloved wife of George Houghton.

Marie managed two medical offices, creating relationships with staff and patients of Dr. Goyette, Dr. Walden and Dr. Ellsworth. She raised three boys and catered to their requests, as well as dads. Marie enjoyed gathering the family together for holidays, birthdays and enjoyed the planning and preparations as much as the event. She always sat in the backyard, just enjoying being with everyone. She spent time knitting, crocheting and sharing. The world truly lost a great woman.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 71 years, this April and her siblings Doris Winslow, Roland Dion and George Dion. She leaves her three sons Michael Houghton of Woodstock, CT, Thomas Houghton of Webster, MA and James Houghton and his wife Brenda of Woodstock, CT; her grandchildren Shawn Houghton and his wife Sheri of Putnam, CT, Shannon Bates and her husband Shawn of Putnam, CT, Kelly Arsenault of Thompson, CT and Jennifer Houghton of Grafton, MA; her great grandchildren Ashley, Alyssa, Alexis, Haley, Johnny and Manny.
