Arolyn J. (Bryant) Lacourse's Story
Arolyn J. (Bryant) Lacourse Barjam, 81, of Epping, N.H., formerly of Amesbury, died Saturday afternoon, October 14, 2017, at Portsmouth Regional Hospital with her family by her side. She was the beloved wife of 44 years of the late Kenneth B. Barjam, who died May 25, 2016.
Born in Lewiston, Maine, on April 29, 1936, she was the youngest of twin daughters of the late Jesse G. and Marion W. (Hewey) Bryant and graduated from high school in Gorham, Maine.
A longtime resident of Amesbury, Arolyn was an active member of the Grace Reformed Baptist Church of Amesbury. She was extremely talented at handicraft, from quilting to sewing, knitting and crocheting, Arolyn crafted many one-of-a-kind family heirlooms not only for her own family and friends to treasure, but also as items for sale at church fairs or charity events. She also loved baking, whipping up delectable treats for family and friends alike, including treats for her beloved dog, Blue Berry, who was never far from her side, regardless of what she was doing.
She leaves behind a lifetime of wonderful memories to her son, Ronald Lacourse and wife, Dorothy of Epping, N.H., with whom she resided over the past year; her daughter, Lynelle Parry and husband, Chris of Maine; her step-sons, Kenneth Barjam of Texas and Bob Barjam and wife, Tara of California; her twin sister, Marolyn of New Jersey; her grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and her countless friends. Each and everyone has their very own special memories of how she impacted their life.
