Constance L. (Vaillancourt) Caron, 76 of Lyman, formerly of Lewiston, passed away March 4, 2019 at Gosnell House in Scarborough after a short battle with anaplastic thyroid cancer with her children by her side. Born in Lewiston, February 20, 1943, Connie was the daughter of the late Ludovic and Yvonne (Charest) Vaillancourt. Educated in Lewiston schools, Connie graduated from Lewiston High School in 1961. On May 30, 1963 she married the love of her life Robert S. Caron. She often told the story of how Bob worked at a small family owned grocery store located on the first floor of the apartment building she lived in. She told her family that she had just met the man she was going to marry on the day she met him. They spent 47 blissful married years together raising four children in Lewiston. Connie is a two time breast cancer survivor. With that in mind, she entered this new fight with all she had and determination to continue living her life to the fullest. Connie worked for St. Mary’s Hospital for 16 years as a dietary aid and then for Geiger Brothers for 14 years when her second round of breast cancer contributed to an early retirement. She was a member of Holy Cross Church (Prince of Peace Parish) in Lewiston for many years. That is where she was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary and became Vice President from 2004-2005. Through this she and her husband developed a fond friendship with Raymond and Dorris Masse. Their years of friendship were and will continue to be one of the strongest relationships she will ever have. In 2009, Connie and Bob moved to Lyman to live with their daughter and son-in-law. Connie became a member of St. Philip’s Church (Good Shepherd Parish) in Lyman. She enjoyed scrapbooking, knitting, watching her beloved Bruins and could talk stats with the best of them. She also loved to watch the Red Sox as of lately, loved to watch Live PD and her star crush Tom Selleck on Blue Bloods; however her true passion was her family. Creating a solid, close, loving family was her goal – and she succeeded. She loved to cook and was very good at it. Feeding her family on numerous occasions was her joy. Connie was predeceased by her parents, in 2011 her loving husband of 47 years and many loving aunts and uncles she considered siblings. She is survived by her daughter, Anne Beaulieu and her husband Steven of Lyman; three sons, Daniel and his wife Jennifer of Milford, CT; David and his wife Lindsey of Waterville; and Kevin and his wife Elizabeth of Wichita, KS; 12 grandchildren: Stefanie Beaulieu and her partner Ashley Dodge; Elizabeth Beaulieu and her fiancé Brandon Bickford; Ashley and Elizabeth Leclerc; Jenna, Patrick, Stephanie, Savannah, Natalie, Olivia, Connor and Gabrielle Caron; a sister-in-law, Olive Caron of Berlin, NH; and many nieces and nephews.

I'll miss you so much, Aunt Connie. I'll miss your hearty laugh and beautiful smile! I remember when I was little, my sister, Pauline and I would spend a couple of weeks at Memere Caron's house and we'd get to visit with all of you. I got to see how you treasured your family and always put them first. The love you had for Uncle Bob and the kids was so obvious. You glowed at all of the family get-togethers! I love how you enjoyed life to the fullest too. You're now with Uncle Bob and are celebrating in heaven together!! Please give each of the kids a sign to help encourage them during this very hard time.
All my love to Anne, Danny, David, Kevin and their families.
