1939 – 2013

LEWISTON — Judith Ann Rancourt, 74, of Lewiston, passed away peacefully at Montello Manor on Tuesday, Dec. 10, following a long illness.

She was born on July 8, 1939, the daughter of Pearl and Frank Hallowell Sr. She attended Yarmouth schools. On June 29, 1968, she married Charles Rancourt in Lewiston; they just celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary this year.

Judy was a homemaker and raised her two daughters, and later in life enjoyed all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be sadly missed by her family. Despite all her health issues through the past several years, Judy held strong to her Catholic faith and knew God would take care of her and see her home safely, where she would finally be healthy and without pain once again.

Judy is survived by her husband, Charles Rancourt, of Lewiston; her two daughters, Julie Ayer of New Gloucester and Frances Demers of Auburn; one sister, Nancy Hallowell, of Gardiner; three brothers, Frank Hallowell Jr. of Lewiston, Dale Hallowell and his wife, Sue, of Greenville, N.H., and Brian Hallowell and his wife, Holly, of Mount Vernon; and her stepmother, whom she loved dearly, June Hallowell, of Bath. She is also survived by eight grandchildren, Laura, Kevin, Nicholas and Benjamin Ayer of Lewiston, Caitlin and Amber Demers of Minot and Brandon and Logan Laliberte of Auburn; seven great-grandchildren, Kiara, Cayden, Kellsie, Ruby, Tony, Maddie and Cameron; and several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her mother and father.

The Rancourt family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff at Montello Manor and the Commons for the excellent care they provided to Judy, as well as the care they continue to provide for their father during this difficult time; and to the staff at Androscoggin Hospice for the care and support.
