SOUTH PARIS — Laurel Sandra Bourque, 67, of South Paris died Monday, June 21, at Market Square Health Care Center, after a brief illness.

She was born Aug. 20, 1942, in Rochester, N.H., the daughter of John and Laurel Glidden Bourque. She attended schools in Massachusetts, prior to relocating to Maine. She spent what most would say was the best part of her life here in the hills of Western Maine.

First with Jackie Cotton and family, and for the past 10 years, she made her home on Fredrick Avenue in South Paris lovingly cared for by TPC family. She worked at Hillcrest Egg Farms and later the Nezinscot Guild until her retirement.

She was proud to have spent the greater part of her life with her loving companion, Arthur Hubbard. After Arthur became ill and moved to Market Square Healthcare Center, she dedicated much of her life to being there with and for Arthur. She enjoyed going out for coffee, shopping, playing bingo, singing, photography, and spending time with good friends, but also enjoyed her quiet time alone.

She was an avid collector of porcelain dolls, fashion accessories, and jewelry. Her fabulous smile and charm will be missed by her friends and those who knew and loved her.

She is survived by a sister, Linda Starbird; a brother, David Bourque; and two very special lifelong friends, Betty Libby and Lee Rice. We all find comfort in knowing that Sandra has joined Arthur for eternity.
