60th anniversary celebrated


AUBURN – A surprise party was held on June 16 for Bill and Jeanne Beauchesne of Auburn on the occasion of their 60th wedding anniversary.

The couple received the red carpet service with a limousine ride. The celebration started at Rolandeau’s Restaurant with their five children and spouses. The couple was then driven to the Carriage House, where lifetime friends and relatives surprised them.

The party was hosted by their five children, Bob Beauchesne of Auburn, Joanne Douchette of Auburn, Jackie Poulin of South Carolina, Larry Beauchesne of Lewiston and Jane Kyllonen of Leeds.

The event was a great success, starting with a couples waltz and was immediately followed by a toast delivered by their son, Larry.

The couple has lived and worked in the Lewiston-Auburn area. They were married on June 21, 1947, at St. Mary’s Church. Their home has always been and continues to be welcoming. They are the very proud grandparents of 12 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
