Priscille J. Fontaine

December 26, 1934August 2, 2019

LEWISTON: Priscille J. Fontaine, 84, of Lewiston joined the Lord and her husband Normand and her son Donald on Friday August 2, 2019 at her home with her loving daughters by her side. Priscille served the Lord and had a light about her that brought love and happiness into the lives of those around her. She was a mother, memere, great memere and friend to so many. There was nothing more that brought joy into her life than her family. She loved being in the kitchen making her famous soups, dips and holiday stuffing. Her fridge was always stocked with mini ginger ale cans and the freezer filled with ice cream for her great grandchildren. Her candy jar was never empty. PJ was not only adored by her human friends, but she was the "Dog Lady". There wasn't a dog in the neighborhood that didn't stop by for their daily visit and treats. Priscille will always be remembered for her love of going out for lunch, puzzles and coffee dates with her family and friends. She was a selfless and loving caregiver. Her smile, laughter, wit and love will be missed by all.

She is survived by her two daughters; Doris Boyle and her husband Raymond of Lewiston and Lorraine Fontaine and her husband Stephen of Turner. She also leaves behind her nephew, Richard Parent, whom she loved like a son, her four granddaughters; Amanda Hammond and her husband Tyler, Stephanie Baillargeon, Shana Fontaine Tinnin and her husband Jason and Rebecca Leclair and her husband Brandon, as well as her eight great grandchildren, Gavin, Ashton, Mason, Autumn, Logan, Trenton, Avery and Liam. Along with her husband and son, she was predeceased by her siblings; Roger Gastonguay, Roland Gastonguay, Theresa Parent and Doris Sirois.

Condolences and fond memories may be shared at www.thefortingrouplewiston.com. A private service will take place at St. Peter’s Cemetery at a later date. Those wishing, in lieu of flowers, Priscille's wish would be for you to spend quality and special time with your loved ones. Arrangements are under the care of The Fortin Group Funeral Home, Cremation and Monument Services 70 Horton St. Lewiston, 784-4584.

Our Deepest Sympathies in the loss of your Mother. She was a special person. When we worked together she was my partner in crime. Sweet sweet lady.
I went to go see her Saturday and saw there was a gathering, so I turned around.
You will always have great memories of your Mom, and you both took such great care of her. God Bless you both.

Sorry to hear about your mother. You were very blessed. Your mother was a wonderful woman with a beautiful heart and soul. She was loved by all who knew her. I was so privileged to have worked with her at Dyp. God bless you at this difficult time

Words can’t really describe the heartache and pain I feel from losing you. It’s like a piece of me has been torn away. You have been “my person “ for such a long time. You were always there for me for every moment of my life. The bond you and I had can not really be explained. You always showed me unconditional love. You always were there to help guide me and be there to talk to. You always knew exactly what to say to help heal my heart and help me deal with my anxiety’s. You have helped me become the person I am today. We shared soo many memories together, all our dates and errands. Doing our nails together and me “helping “ with those dreaded puzzles! Over the last 33 years together I am so blessed and honored to say that I got to see you almost every single day. My life will not be the same without you. There will be a void that I don’t think ever can be filled. Who will I go cry to when I have to drop the boys of to school. Who will sit there with me and pray to Mary to help heal our worries. I love you so incredibly much and will feel lost without you. Thank you for all the love you gave me, Brandon and the boys. Thank you for the advise you gave me and the support to follow our dreams. Thank you for praying for us for our dreams to come true. I am so thankful you have been a part of every milestone in my life. I will hold onto and cherish every memory of you. You will always be in my heart and my thoughts. I was so selfish for so long cuz I couldn’t bear the thought of losing you. But you knew it was your time to be with Pepere again. I am so thankful you’re together again. I hope you smothered him with lots of hugs and kisses for me. I love you Memere, Thank you for sharing your life with me. Look over me and continue to guide me. It’s not goodbye.. it’s I’ll see you again. I’ll see you every day in my heart and thoughts. I love you always and forever.
