Ethel Rose Lacillade BRAINTREE — Ethel Rose Lacillade, 84, of Sesame Street in Braintree, died on Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, at the Barre Gardens in Barre. She was born on July 3, 1935, in Marshfield, the daughter of George and Emma (Bulris) Powers. She attended public schools in Marshfield and Montpelier.
