AUBURN — Jeannette L. Doucette, 93, formerly of Hazelhurst Street in Auburn, died peacefully, Wednesday, Oct. 18, at Clover Manor. She was born in Lewiston on Dec. 12, 1923, a daughter of the late Ferdinand and Alice (Blanchette) Lacombe.

She was unofficially their “Social Director.” She enjoyed playing bingo, listening to music and singing opera. She also enjoyed following her beloved Red Sox.
