LEWISTON —  Louise Ellen Day was born April 15, 1926, the daughter of Frank and Bertha (Benedix) Rattigan, died Feb. 24, at d’Youville Pavilion, with her four daughters by her side.

She was a graduate of Lewiston High School and Auburn Maine School of Commerce. She married Wallace Frances Burrows, who passed away in 1971. She worked 50 years as a secretary at Eastern Refractories.

She was a take charge kind of gal who single parented three daughters, before marrying Charles Day, the love of her life. They celebrated Christmas at CMMC with the birth of daughter, Lisa in 1964. After retirement, they spent several years at their winterized cottage on Taylor Pond and enjoyed 40 years together, until his death in 2001.

She was extremely proud of her grandchildren, Jesse Lessard, a clay modeler and his sister, Josana Blue a NYC artist; Second Class Petty Officer Josef Arnoldy, U.S. Navy Air Crew and sister, Katie, student of international business; Eric Estabrook a hydro-seeding technician, Angie and their daughter, Porscha, his brother, Matthew, multi-talented chef and carpenter; Sgt. Benjamin Clark, Army veteran, two tours in Iraq, future firefighter, wife, Jessi, parents to be and his sister, Jessica Hilts and her son, Dylan.

She enjoyed needlepoint, crocheting and was a meticulous quilter. What mattered most was her faith, family and her many lifelong friendships. All who knew her, loved her and will miss her and her laughter.

She is survived by daughters and their husbands, Nancy and Rick Weber, Kathy and Paul Arnoldy, Frances and Buster Estabrook and Lisa and Bruce Clark.

She was predeceased by a brother, Francis; a sister, Bertha; her parents; and a much loved cat named Pewter.

A special thanks to Beacon Hospice Care and the staff at d’Youville.
