With an infectious love for life, an unbreakable bond with her family, deep connections with her friends, and a special place in her heart for her loyal dogs, Keiko (Kathrine) Goulet, aged 57, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2023, surrounded by her cherished family and friends after bravely facing ALS. She is now free and at peace.
Born on August 2, 1966, in New York to Dr. Joseph and Judy Millerick, Keiko’s journey toward a life filled with compassion and care began when she attended Hall High School and later the University of Connecticut. For most of her career, she dedicated herself to Lake Garda Elementary School as a nursing assistant and school secretary. Her deep affection for her school family and the countless children she cared for was evident in her unwavering dedication and the positive impact she had on all whose lives she touched.
Keiko crossed paths with her soulmate, Michael Goulet, back in high school. They started dating during her college years and eventually married in Branford, Connecticut, on June 16, 1990. Keiko and Michael had a deep appreciation for life’s simple pleasures and treasured their time together, relishing weekends in Maine, creating lasting memories with their children, their furry companions, and their closest friends and family. Their love story stands as a testament to the lasting strength of love and companionship.
A loving mother, Keiko’s devotion for her two sons, Nicholas Goulet of West Hartford, Connecticut, and Patrick Goulet, who is engaged to Grace Purcell of Belgrade, Montana, was immeasurable. They were the source of immense joy and light in her life, and her affection for them knew no bounds. Keiko was thrilled to welcome Grace into the family and held her dear, treating her like a cherished daughter.
Keiko is also survived by her sister, Janet Stuck, and her husband, Kevin Stuck, of Granby, Connecticut. She also leaves her brother, David Millerick, and his wife, Lisa Millerick, residing in Southington, Connecticut. Her family will forever hold her close in their hearts, remembering the love and happiness she brought into their lives. Countless other family members and friends who adored her will continue to cherish her memory.
Keiko’s passion for cooking was well-known, and she was celebrated for her mouthwatering dishes and famous chocolate chip cookies, which brought joy and satisfaction to everyone fortunate enough to taste her delicious creations.
Keiko’s vibrant spirit, her boundless love, and the indelible mark she left on those around her will be treasured forever. We couldn’t have asked for a better friend and family member, and the void left by her absence will be felt every day. Her memory will always be in the hearts of those who felt her kindness and warmth.
