A 30-year resident of Carlisle, she served for over 17 years on the Carlisle Planning board and currently was serving her eighth year on the Carlisle Board of Selectmen. Mrs. Chaput was instrumental in the securing of local and federal funding for the purchase of over 100 acres of open space in Carlisle known as the O'Rourke Land. She also was a member of the nonprofit group that constructed the only senior housing development in Carlisle Center.

Mrs. Chaput received her bachelor's degree in landscape architecture from the University of Rhode Island and studied Planning and Landscape Design at the University of Pennsylvania. She received her MBA from Babson College. After working for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Washington, D.C., she spent several years as a city planner with the Manchester, New Hampshire Redevelopment Authority. Last year, her company completed development of a 26-unit, senior-restricted condominium development in Billerica, Massachusetts, which won a coveted award for design from the National Association of Home Builders.

Mrs. Chaput is survived by her husband, Dr. Ronald M. Chaput, a dentist in Chelmsford, a daughter Noelle and her husband Keith Davighl of Princeton, New Jersey, and her brother Jan Kisiel of Port St. Lucie, Florida.

A funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Irene Roman Catholic Church, 181 East Street, Carlisle at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 13, followed by burial in Green Cemetery in Carlisle. Calling hours will be omitted.
