LEWISTON – Becky Jean Clough, 51, passed peacefully into eternal life surrounded by her family on Nov. 6.

She was born May 27, 1952, in Kittery, the eldest daughter of Lila (Thompson) Couturier and Richard Thompson. She later became the stepdaughter of Roger Couturier. She graduated from Lewiston High School in 1970 and later received her BSRN from the University of Maine in Augusta.

She has been a warm and passionate hospice nurse for many years where she cared openly for her patients and their families. Many of these families have continued a relationship with her.

During the past four years she worked for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice as a beloved hospice nurse and a quality assurance nurse. Prior to her hospice work, she worked at Central Maine Medical Center in the Neonatal Care Unit where her special gift of loving and caretaking played a huge role in little lives.

She enjoyed her children Ian and Mikaela and all of their activities especially Mikaela’s dance and Ian’s time on the soccer field. Family was very important to her, she always spent time sharing and enjoying life with her children, her five siblings, and their spouses, and her stepdad. She also found a special way to be involved in each of her nieces and nephews lives.

She was loved by many close friends, some whom were neighbors, co-workers, childhood pals, fellow cancer survivors, and other people she developed a special connection with during her life’s journey.

In her own time, she spent hours gardening which she loved and also could often be found crocheting, doing aerobics, making dried flower arrangements, sewing. She had a love for the Balloon Festival, the family Sebago Lake Camp, and the ocean, and her nieces and nephews sporting events. As an extension of her work, she was very involved with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
