St Hilaire Obit Pic #1

Lorraine Beaule St. Hilaire, 91, died August 2, 2017 at the Hospice House in Auburn. Born in Lewiston, she was the oldest of four children of John Beaule and Yolande Dostie Beaule. She graduated from l’école Ste. Marie and eventually earned her GED after having left high school to help her family financially. Lorraine met her future husband Fernand St. Hilaire, whom she loved dearly, in the Little Canada neighborhood. Fern and Lorraine married soon after his return from the Navy and shortly after their marriage they bought a house on Lincoln St. with the help of his mother, Leontine. They loved their home and were always very happy there spoiling their two daughters, Monique and Anita. When the girls were growing up, the St. Hilaire home was a welcoming place for their friends, who loved M. et Mme. St. Hilaire. Lorraine was an office worker at the Continental Mill and later worked as a proof reader at Geiger Bros. until her retirement. She loved and was very proud of her grandsons Gerry and Denis and she especially loved her super sweet great-granddaughter Avie. Lorraine lived with her daughter Monique for over three years and in March moved to Montello Manor where she received excellent care and was treated with love and compassion. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff - You are Terrific. Lorraine will be missed by her family: daughters Monique Couturier and Anita and John Stone; grandchildren Gerald and Kristi Touchette and Denis Touchette; great-granddaughter Avie Touchette; sisters Marie and Normand Therrien and Muguette Plourde; sister-in-law Pauline Beaule and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Fern, her parents, her mother-in-law, her brother Gerard Beaule, her brother-in-law Harvey Plourde and her sons-in-law Gerald P. Touchette and Robert Couturier. The family would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the entire staff of the Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice.
