AUBURN — Barbara Ann Cloutier, 76, of Auburn, passed away Friday, April 20, at Clover Manor in Auburn, following a long illness.
She was born Nov. 5, 1941, the daughter of the late Charles and Nora (Gibbons) Connor, in Manchester, N.H. She attended school there, graduating from Manchester Central High School. She later attended community college for two years.
She moved to Lewiston in 1976, and worked as a Realtor for Century 21 for a short time, while raising her young family of three children. She spent many years in Florida, beginning in 2003, before moving back to Lewiston-Auburn in 2015.
Barbara was formerly a member of Holy Cross Parish in Lewiston and a past member of the Derby Downs Condo Association. She enjoyed playing golf and spending time with her family, especially the great times spent camping at York Beach. Most of all, Barbara was a wonderful mother and grandmother.
Barbara is survived by her three children, Michael K. Cloutier of Auburn, Colleen L. McCracken and husband, Norman Croteau, of Scarborough, Kristen S. Cloutier and husband, Denny Bourgoin, of Lewiston; six grandchildren, Christopher, Ashley and Emily Cloutier, Kaila and Ian McCracken, and Ridley Bourgoin; and one great-granddaughter, Kendall Cloutier.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by two special aunts, Mary and Margaret Connor, of whom she was very fond.
The family would like to thank the staff on the Galway Unit at Clover Manor and the staff at Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice.
