LEWISTON — Albertine M. Allain, 93, formerly of Brentwood Avenue in Lewiston died Monday, Nov. 26, at St. Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion following a long illness.
She was born in Winslow, Dec. 22, 1918, the daughter of Joseph and Alexandrine (Gilbert) Lemieux.
Albertine loved to knit especially mittens and dish cloths that were donated by her for fundraisers at both St. Louis Church fairs and for the Maine Children’s Cancer Fund. Her favorite time of year were the holidays and enjoying visits with family.
Over the years, both Albertine and her husband, Louis, grieved over the loss of their only child, John, who was tragically lost in an accident more than 30 years ago. Albertine coped with the loss through her faith saying the Rosary for her son everyday.
