GRAY – Rebecca R. Aube, 33, died Monday, Oct. 6, at her home in Gray with her beloved husband by her side and her family close by after a lengthy and courageous battle with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. She was born on September 22, 1970, the wonderful daughter of Henry and Rita Tanguay of Gray.

Becky lived in Gray her entire life. She enjoyed gardening, scrap-booking, traveling, and making wonderful memories for her entire family. She was a gifted and talented writer. She made up a brand new holiday for her family to celebrate: Sundae Sunday. She was very strong and courageous in her struggle with her disease. She never gave up hope that she would conquer her cancer. She endured nearly two years of treatment to stay here with her family. She will always be loved and very much missed by those of us fortunate enough to have known her. Even though her life was short, we are all very thankful for the time that God gave to us with her. She was an extraordinary human being with a wonderful spirit who made a profound impact on every person who was lucky enough to know her. She will be sadly missed but never forgotten. She made many wonderful memories that we will cherish forever. We are happy she is free from pain now and finally at peace.

Besides her loving husband of 14 years Michael, she blows kisses to her three sons, Nolan, 7, Malcolm, 4, and Samuel, 3, in every breeze they feel, every flower that blooms, and every candle that glows. She leaves behind her blessed mom and dad, Rita and Henry Tanguay of Gray; sister, Regina and Ken Lamarche of Naples; sister, Simone and Steve Wright of Gray; sister, Lucille and Phil Strout of Gray; brother, Matthew and Tammy Tanguay of Gray and sister Pam and Tracy Stone of New Gloucester. She sadly leaves her husband’s family, father and mother-in-law Marcel “Pete” and Theresa Aube of Poland; brother-in-law Marcel Aube Jr., of Vernon, Conn.; brother-in-law Bill and Sue Aube of Bolton, Mass.; and sister-in-law Linda and Wayne Morrison of Glade Park, Colo. She so loved her aunts, uncles, cousins and 22 nieces and nephews she had.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2003, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Gregory’s Parish, North Raymond Road in Gray.
