Bergeron Obit Pic Old

 Jeannine Marie Victoria (Chamberland) Bergeron, of 5 Pond Road, Lewiston, died at home on Monday, June 15, 2015, surrounded by several of the many who loved her dearly. She was born at home on September 25, 1937, the eldest of four children of Laurette (Gendron) and Lionel Chamberland. She remembered a happy, busy childhood surrounded by a large extended nurturing family and friends. She was proud of her Franco-American heritage.  She treasured her sense of humor which was preserved to the very end. She graduated, top of her class, from both Holy Family School in Lewiston and St. Joseph’s Academy in South Berwick (where she won an essay contest on the United Nations sponsored by 3 regional High Schools). She married husband Emile at Holy Family Church on July 20, 1957, where she remains a lifelong parishioner. She had been employed by First National Bank and Geiger Brothers in her earlier years. She was an avid reader and crossword puzzle solver.  She enjoyed writing poems, nature, music, oil painting, taking long walks, motorcycling, snowmobiling, roller skating, ice skating, history, crocheting,  playing cards, Scrabble, Dominoes, and Balderdash. She enjoyed going out with her kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids, who she loved dearly. She enjoyed over 30 summers at her camp at Parlin Pond where she met many wonderful people. She leaves behind her husband, Emile, and siblings:  brothers, Raymond, of Littleton, NH, and Marcel , of Greene, her children, son, Daniel Bergeron of Phippsburg,  daughters,  Lucy Packard and husband Scott, of  Buckfield,  Patricia Washburn and husband Howard of Hebron and Rose-Marie (Rosie) Bergeron of Lewiston. She has been blessed by seven grandchildren and their families: Candice Cerracchio, Luke Bergeron, Chelsea Packard, Joseph Bergeron, Natalie Washburn, Abbie Bergeron, and Crystal Sabo.   She also had many inlaws, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and caretakers she was very fond of. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister Rita in April of this year, and a special granddaughter, Caitlin Joy Packard. She was determined to continue to fight until the safe arrival of  two new family members and realized this goal with the birth of two great-grandsons when they were born within 24 hours of each other two weeks ago. Thank you to all who have helped her on her journey. PEACE.
