AUBURN — Anita L. Guay, 83, formerly of Lisbon Falls, died Saturday, May 27, 2017 at Clover Manor in Auburn. Anita was born in Lewiston on June 23, 1933, the daughter of Raoul A. Francoeur and Regina Simard Francoeur. She was a graduate of Richmond High School, Class of 1950.

She married her only love, Marcel F. “Mike” Guay on her birthday in 1951. They raised four sons, and enjoyed 58 years of marriage until Mike’s death in 2009.

A resident of Lisbon Falls since 1967, Anita loved serving the public and was well known in town. She worked many years as a clerk at Robert’s Pharmacy before joining the Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union in 1986, assisting members until her retirement in 2008. She enjoyed knitting and dancing; her handmade sweaters were much admired, as were her and Mike’s moves to the sounds of the big band era.

She is survived by two sons, Bruce M. Guay and wife, Deborah Ringuette, of Auburn, and Scott L. Guay and partner, Marsha Merryman, of Oakland; as well as six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and many extended family and special friends.

In addition to her husband, Anita was predeceased by two sons, Mark B. Guay and Jeff A. Guay.

The family would like to thank the staff of Thornton Hall and Clover Manor for the care and compassion they provided Anita in her last two years of life. Although it was very difficult for her to leave her home of 48 years, you made her feel safe, secure and loved.

Anita L. Guay
