AUBURN — Sandra King Bolduc, 77, passed away peacefully at home July 26, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was the daughter of James F. King and Eileen N. King (Poloski), being the youngest of six siblings. Born Jan. 1, 1941, in Portland, Maine, she attended Portland schools and graduated from Edward Little High School.

She married Maurice Bolduc on Jan. 25, 1958.

Sandra was an avid reader, cross-stitcher and knitter. She enjoyed traveling.

She was always up for an adventure, be it traveling to Florida to see her eldest daughter or a journey along the Maine coast. Her love for the Maine coastline stemmed from her early years spent growing up on Munjoy Hill and the Eastern Promenade. Even in her later life, she always enjoyed a picnic lunch with Amato’s sandwiches overlooking Casco Bay. Sandy would often recount pleasant memories of road trips taken with her husband to California to visit family.

Sandy was a kind, loving woman who always put the needs of others before her own. Time spent with her grandchildren never failed to bring a smile to her face.


Sandy, together with her husband, raised five children. She instilled in all of them a strong sense of family, a love of reading and an appreciation of the value of perseverance in all aspects of life.

Sandy worked for Androscoggin County Head Start for more than 30 years. She will be sorely missed by all who had been fortunate enough to know her.

She was predeceased by her parents, her brothers Vincent and Dick King and her sister, Frances (Bette) Howland.

Sandy is survived by her husband of 60 years, Maurice; her sons Kyle and wife, Monique, of Bangor; Stephen and wife, Paula, of Mechanic Falls; James and wife, Cynthia, of Auburn; daughters Sandra Cullinan and husband ,Michael, of Kissimmee, Florida, and Eileen Fanjoy and husband, Brent, of Auburn; 14 grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers William King of Buxton and James King of Mountain Home, Idaho. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews. Also surviving her are her two loving cats: Mr. Biggles and Eden.
