Lucienne Michaud

October 30, 1925October 11, 2013

Waterville, Lucienne “Lucy” Michaud, 87, passed away at Lakewood Manor on Friday, October 11, 2013 leaving many sad hearts in her family and friends. Her children were at her side as she left to join her husband Augustin “Gus” Michaud and son Rick who predeceased her. She was born on October 30, 1925 in Lac Megantic, P.Q. a daughter of the late Joseph D. and Celeda M. (LaPointe) LaRoche.

Lucienne married Augustin Michaud on June 24, 1950 at Sacred Heart Church in Waterville. Together they raised their five children. She worked at Keyes Fibre for many years where she made many dear friends. The most important thing in Lucienne’s life was her children and family which she centered her life around. They will most fondly remember her beautiful smile which would melt away any worry or problem. In Lucienne’s retirement years she and her husband Augustin devoted a great amount of their time to volunteer at the Muskie Center and specifically Meals on Wheels. She also was a member of the Elks Lodge women’s auxiliary and the American Legion. Lucienne and Augustin enjoyed traveling by bus, snowmobiling and playing cards with family and friends. She loved all holidays and had a special fondness for the Christmas season. She was known for making sure she gave her children gag gifts every year which were always opened with great hesitation and merriment. Lucienne is survived by a son Dan Michaud and partner Brice Booker of Newton, Ma, three daughters Diane Michaud Thibodeau and husband Joseph of Fairfield, Marlene Michaud Webber and husband Roger of Augusta and Doreen Gilbert and a close special grandson, Patrick Gilbert of Albion. She also leaves two sisters Jeannette Nadeau and husband Everard of Winslow and Cecile Nadeau and husband Gerard of Sidney, granddaughters Tia Dixon, Talia LeClair and husband Scott, and Tovah Michaud as well as great grandchildren Dustee Dixon, Cameron Michaud and Cooper LeClair, a daughter-in law Paula Michaud and many nieces and nephews. Lucienne was predeceased by her husband Augustin on April 8, 2008, her son Rick Michaud on October 3, 2011, a son in law Scott Gilbert, six sisters and three brothers.

Dear Dan, Diane, Marlene and Doreen

I was sorry to learn that you had lost your mother so precious to your heart.

She was a special Mom to you and to me also. She always had a loving smile and kind word to share.

I will remember her and keep her in my prayer.

"Dans un jardin à l'ombre d'un mur,Trois Roses, Lucienne, Gus and Rick poussaient doucement.
Un jour, attirés par la lumière,les trois Roses, peu à peu, traversèrent le mur .

Vous qui pleurez, consolez-vous, car les trois Roses fleurissent toujours plus belles que jamais dans la Lumière du Très-Haut".

My deepest sympathy with my special love.

Your aunt Jeannine

We were so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We are all so blessed to have known her and your wonderful family. I think of Uncle Gus and Ricky often and smile to know they were part of my extended family and will be always, and now MaTante Lucienne. She was such a lovely, beautiful person as you all already know. I was happy to have her in my life. It goes without saying, she was much loved and will be so greatly missed.

Love to you all and to all of your Families,

Your cousin,

Dear Dan, Diane, Marlene & Doreen,
Our sincere sympathies to you all and all of your families. Aunt Lucienne was a great Aunt and a very enjoyable person to know. I'll always remember the great visits your mother & father made to our home in Winslow when we were young. It was always exciting to see them. Your mother's smile & laughter was always there. We will miss her.

Dear Dan, Diane, Marlene, and Doreen. One special relationship I had with your Mom and Dad was serving as their ring-bearer at their marriage, a unique honor that I will always treasure. Hopefully, the Lord will comfort you at this time of earthly sadness, possibly in part with the knowledge that your Mom is now at eternal peace not only with your Dad, but also with other family members who preceded her, including my Mom. Your cousin, Carl.

Dear Doreen and Patrick,
At least now, your Mom can dance with your Dad and be in his arms again. They are both watching over you and smiling. I laugh so many times of the stories you would tell us of your parents. Do you remember the time you went over to their house for lunch one afternoon? Many hugs, our prayers are with you.
