LEWISTON — Claire C. Aube died peacefully in her home Monday, May 21. She was the beloved only child of Robert Arthur and Cecile Tardif Aube. Claire was born in Lewiston on Oct. 9, 1950.

She was a lifelong member of Lewiston’s Holy Family Church. She was a resilient individual who embraced the blessings and challenges associated with Down syndrome. Her many attributes included an exuberant, enthusiastic personality and the ability to read and write in French and English. She maintained a lifelong passion for country music and professional football.

Over the past decade, Claire was the beneficiary of loving and tender care provided by the dedicated staff at Creative Work Systems. It would be impossible to overstate the positive impact Claire’s caretakers had on her well-being. In more recent times, she received additional sensitive care from Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice providers. Claire will be remembered for her quick wit, easy smile and sensitivity toward others.

She will forever occupy a place in the hearts of her surviving family, including Ron and Madelene Martel and Paul, Marc, Ray and Rosemarie Tardif. A very special gratitude is extended to Claire’s guardian and friend, Rosemarie Goodwin. Rosemarie provided Claire with unflinching attentiveness, affection and skilled coordination of care for over 12 years.
