AUBURN — Jane A. Ouellette, 84, died Tuesday, Aug. 1, at Auburn Hospice House.

She was born in Livermore Falls, the daughter of Arthur and Evelyn (Foss) Burbank. She attended local schools and graduated from Livermore Falls High School in 1952. She loved sports and played varsity basketball and she was the head majorette in her senior year. Following graduation, she attended Pelletier’s School of Cosmetology.

After graduation, she worked as a hairdresser in Camden and later at Peck’s in Lewiston. On April 19, 1955, she married her high school sweetheart, Roger Ouellette, at Saint Rose of Lima Church. They made their home in Key West, Fla., for the next few years, while Roger served in the U.S. Navy.

After their return to Livermore Falls, Jane concentrated on raising her family. She also owned and operated Jane’s Beauty Shop, but she will always be remembered for the love and care that she gave her children and later to her elderly parents.

Jane was an extremely good swimmer, and she loved lighthouses, trips to the coast, taking the kids for a swim at the cove, getting together with old friends, making new friends, nurturing animals and loving her cats.

She was extremely devoted to those she loved.

She leaves her sister, Elaine Botka; her husband, Roger; her daughter, Debra Daniels and her husband, Mark, of Jay; her son Roger II and his wife, Deborah, of Turner; her son Jack and his wife, Mary, of Clermont, Fla.; her son Mark of Livermore; and her son Richard and his wife, Lori, of Livermore. In addition, she leaves seven grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Above all, she loved family and loved the family gatherings.

We express our sincere thanks and gratitude to the staff of Clover Manor and the Auburn Hospice House for all their love, kindness and meticulous care. These are truly special people doing God’s work and words simply can’t express our appreciation.
