AUBURN — Georgette L. Lepage, 88, of Minot, passed away on Friday, Dec. 6, at Clover Health Care, with her family at her side.

She was born in Lewiston on Dec. 2, 1925, a daughter of the late Arthur and Eliane (Aube) Lagasse. She lived in the Lewiston-Auburn and Minot areas her whole life. She attended local schools and earned her high school G.E.D., then took classes at the University of Maine.

On Aug. 10, 1946, she married the love of her life, Joseph Leo Lepage, at St. Louis Church in Auburn. Together they worked and raised their family in this area.

Later, she worked at Clover Manor as a dietary aide, as well as St. Joseph Preschool. She was also the activities director at the Odd Fellows Home, before retiring.

She was a member of Sacred Heart Church, Rebecca’s Fidelity No. 4 and the Lewiston Senior Citizens. Her passions were singing and artwork. She performed at events and organizations in the Twin Cities, and even started a band at the Odd Fellows Home. She was a wonderful artist, who loved to share her talent.
