HAMPTON, NH - Evelyn Chabot, 89, passed away on February 11, 2018, at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House in Haverhill, Mass. She had been a resident of the Lakeview House Nursing Home for the past five years where she was lovingly cared for. Evelyn was born to the late Joseph and Yvonne (Bourgeois) Chabot in Lawrence, Mass., on March 4, 1928.
