LEWISTON — Adrienne Eva Phoenix, 97, died peacefully Saturday, Jan. 15, in the tender care of the staff at Montello Manor, her home since 2002.

She was born in her family home in New Auburn on March 5, 1913, to Joseph and Eva (Lavoie) Phoenix. After graduating from Edward Little High School, she had a long career as a dental assistant for two Lewiston dentists. Following her retirement as a dental assistant, she worked in the hospital office at CMMC, where she made many new friends.

A warm welcome was always waiting at Adrienne’s door. To visit her was an adventure that might include childhood treats, a lobster dinner and always one more game played around the kitchen table. Whether dominoes, cards, or Scrabble, you had to keep up, and, if not, you might hear, “It’s a fast game.” Full of vitality, she lived her life, attentive to the gestures of friendship that bind us together.

She was a stylish and lively person. She was a member of many clubs: the French Club, the Poker Girls, the Bridge Club and the Coffee Club. Spending time with her sisters and this close-knit sorority of friends, some of whom she had known since childhood, filled her life with joy and kept her constantly on the move. Her loyalty to family and friends will be long remembered.

She was predeceased by her twin brother, Adrien; and her three younger sisters, Jeannette Dumais, Edna Marcotte and Vivienne Landry, all of Lewiston. She leaves behind many nieces and nephews, who will remember her for her spirit and generosity; Estelle (Dumais) Delcourt, Paul Dumais, John Dumais, Joan (Marcotte) Hamann, Debra (Landry) Lyneis, Janice (Landry) Bettencourt, Karen (Landry) Graves, Gary Landry and Gaye (Landry) Rogers.
