LEWISTON: Rolande M. (St. Pierre) Ayotte (Philippon), born August 7, 1928, peacefully passed away on September 2, 2020, at home with her loving husband by her side, following a courageous battle from congestive heart failure. She was the daughter of the late Henri and Rose (Pettigrew) St. Pierre and lived in Lewiston her entire life. She worked at Jolly Post and Raytheon prior to starting her career at St. Mary’s hospital in 1963, first as a CNA and moving up the ladder to work as a Unit Secretary on ICU until her retirement in 1991 when computers were introduced to the hospital for record keeping. She married Roger Ayotte in 1953 and was married to him until 1996 when he passed. In 1997, she met Emilio Philippon and after courting for 8 years, they married in 2005 and spent many happy days together, especially traveling to Myrtle Beach and Florida every January and February. They truly had a happy life together and cherished each other, spending time shopping, eating out and taking Sunday drives. She was blessed to have had two loving husbands. Survivors include her husband, Emilio Philippon, daughters Claire and husband Tim Barclay, Diane and husband PeterAllen, stepdaughters Mona Ervin, Gina Philippon and companion Clint Smith, stepson Dana and wife Jody Philippon and friend Sue Bigelow, her two sisters, Lorraine Tremblay and Pauline and husband Al St. Pierre, sisters-in-law, Jeannine and husband Norm Berube, Martha Moberg and brothers-in-law, Robert and wife Jeannine Ayotte and Hank and Joanne Ayotte. She also leaves behind her grandchildren; Chris Robichaud, Marc Robichaud and fiancé Joyce Lozinski, Timothy Barclay II and wife Hanna, Elizabeth Collins and husband Matthew, Melissan Walk and husband Ryan, Michael Allen, Tim Ervin and wife Michelle, Chad, Leah and Alec Philippon and Marc Damon as well as her great grandchildren, Benjamin Lane-Robichaud, Riley and Alexis Walk, Alyssa Robichaud, Marc II and Regina Robichaud and Timothy (Rex) Barclay III. She had many special nieces and nephews and always enjoyed their company. We would also like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the staff at Beacon Hospice, especially Angela who through God’s grace crossed our path when we needed to make arrangements to take our mom home to live out her final days. Nurse Chrissy who was our lighthouse in the storm, always smiling and giving guidance each step of the way. CNA Crystal who was the comforter, coming in every weekday morning getting mom up and ready for the day, Steve and Sarah who came with words of hope and wisdom, listening to us and making sure we were holding up through this journey, and the countless staff members who came in on the off hours in our time of need. They truly gave of themselves and we salute you all-continue in your good deeds and may you be blessed with the riches we received by having you in our lives these last 6 months. Thank you!

Claire & Diane
Sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was a lovely lady. I remember her the most when they lived in Begins trailer park where my mom and dad also lived. My deepest sympathies to you both.
