AUGUSTA — Brianna Marie Belisle, 25, of Harrison and the Rangeley Lakes area, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, Jan. 21. She was born in Farmington on June 5, 1992, the daughter of Marie McIntosh & Brian Belisle and was educated in the Oxford Hills and Rangeley Lakes school districts, receiving her diploma in 2012. Brianna was a kindhearted, compassionate, soft-spoken young woman who loved the ocean, animals of all kinds (with a special fondness for cats, Rottweilers and pit bulls), hiking, longboarding and was extremely talented with the gift of drawing anything. If you asked her to draw it, she would master it wonderfully. In her short time here, Brianna had been employed in greenhouse work and care, and most recently in woodworking at Cousineau’s in Madison.

Brianna leaves behind her mom, Marie Hawkins of Anson; dad and stepmom Brian and Tina Belisle of Harrison; grandmother Connie Douglas and her partner Reggie Dickson of Falmouth; grandmother Rose Belisle of Rangeley; brothers Jason McIntosh and his wife, Samantha, of Farmington, Joshua McIntosh and his wife, Taylor, of Pooler, Georgia, Joshua Russell and his wife, Nicole, of Minot, Jordan Russell of Norway, and Jonathan Russell and his wife, Sarah, of Norway; uncle Scott Belisle of Phillips; uncle Dennis and aunt Bonnie Richards of Phillips; aunt Sandra and uncle Ken Hilton of West Durham; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Brianna was predeceased by her grandfathers Earl McIntosh and Frank Belisle, both of Rangeley, and her aunt Lori Belisle of Rangeley. Brianna loved to joke and laugh with her family and friends. Her presence, big bright eyes and beautiful smile could light up the darkest room. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
