1939 – 2016

AUBURN — Bertha V. Leveille, 77, of Greene passed away peacefully to her next beautiful journey at the Hospice House in Auburn with her family by her side on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

She was born Bertha Violet Jones on Aug. 18, 1939, in Lincoln.

She resided in Greene with her loving husband, Maurice Leveille, from Millinocket. They met at a county fair in Lincoln. They married Jan. 12, 1963, and shared more than 56 years of memories together.

She later moved to the Auburn area and worked at various mills. She retired from GE after 25 years as a machine operator. Bertha and her husband enjoyed retirement with family and friends. She especially loved to play the slots with her husband and sisters, Betty and Ginny, and travel to visit family in Texas and California. She has always loved her flower gardens and watching the birds. She was an avid Patriots and Red Sox fan and loved watching golf on TV.

She was a very proud and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Bertha was a generous and kind person, and would give anything to help someone out. Our world will not be the same without seeing her beautiful smile, but we are at peace knowing she is watching over us all. We love you, Mom.

Bertha has a brother, Bert Jones and wife, Donna, in Texas; sister, Virginia Prest in Texas; and sister, Betty MacWhinnie and husband, Roger, of Litchfield. She has a daughter, Sherry Camic and her husband, Stanley, of Greene; son, Jeff Leveille and wife, Jennifer, of Conway, S.C.; daughter, Wendy Pelletier and her husband, Michael, of Augusta; seven grandchildren, Theresa Armstrong, Randi Michaud, Kristen Camic, Robert Leveille, Elena Leveille, Casey Brochu and Cameron Brochu. She was blessed with four great-grandchildren this year that brought great joy, Aiden, Jack, and twins, Lily and Lila.

She was predeceased by her mother, Gladys V. Kirk; her stepfather, Herbert Kirk; her father, Bert Jones; and a sister, Frances Chubbuck.

The family would like to express special thanks to the staff at the hospice house who made her and family comfortable and consoled. We couldn’t have done it without you.
