Bussiere Obit Pic 1

Pauline A. Bussiere, 97, of Lewiston, died Sunday morning, July 2, 2017, the the Marshwood Nursing Home in Lewiston. She was born January 14, 1920 in Van Buren, the daughter of Francois and Albina L’Italien Violette. She was educated in Presque Isle schools, and on April 14, 1941 she married Roland Bussiere, who passed away in 1985. For several years, she worked for Zayre’s as the Fabric Department Manager. Pauline enjoyed cooking, sewing, reading, and jig-saw puzzles. She loved keeping her yard neat and tidy, and in the fall you would see her with a rake in her hands almost every day, trying to keep up with the falling leaves. Pauline was a devoted wife and a wonderful mother, and she will be greatly missed. Survivors include a son, Ronald Bussiere and wife Brenda of Turner, two daughters, Suzanne Harlow and husband Garry of Lewiston, and Jo Ann Brochu of Auburn, a sister, Christine Hopkins of Auburn, and a sister-in-law, Aline Violette of Lewiston. She also leaves behind ten grandchildren, twenty four great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a son, Richard Bussiere, sisters Muriel Turgeon and Lola Bedell, and brothers Angelo, Raymond, Phillip, and Benny Violette. The family would like to thank the staff at Marshwood for the excellent care they gave her.
