LEWISTON — A Mass of Christian Burial honoring the life of Jeanne B. Carbonneau was celebrated on Monday morning, March 3, by the Rev. Aaron Damboise, and was concelebrated by the Rev. Albert Roux and the Rev. Richard Malo at Holy Cross Church of the Prince of Peace Parish.

At the beginning of Mass, Jeanne’s granddaughters, Natalie Maciejewski and Rachael McCormick, draped their grandmother’s casket with a white burial pall signifying Jeanne’s baptism into a new spiritual life with God. A reading of the New Testament was proclaimed by Jeanne’s daughter-in-law, Veronica Carbonneau, and the Prayer of the Faithful was recited by Jeanne’s other daughter-in-law, Pauline Carbonneau. The offertory gifts were brought to the altar by Jeanne’s daughter and son, Colette Carbonneau and Claude Carbonneau. Before the end of Mass, Jeanne’s son, Dr. Robert Carbonneau, shared words of remembrance of his mother and what a family matriarch she was to all.

Following a funeral procession to St. Peter’s Cemetery, the Rev. Damboise recited committal prayers in the Chapel of the Crucifixion, before entombment in St. Peter’s Mausoleum. The pallbearers were Michael, Matthew, Steven and Marc Carbonneau, as well as John and Ryan Maciejewski. At the conclusion of services, all in attendance were invited to a reception of fellowship at the Ramada Inn in Lewiston. Arrangements by Pinette & Lynch Funeral Home.
