AUBURN — Ginette Gagnon, 80, of Lewiston died Sunday, July 29, at the Hospice House in Auburn after a 9½-year, courageous battle with cancer, with her loving family at her side.

She was born in St.-Georges De Beauce, Quebec, on Feb. 3, 1938, daughter of the late Eddy and Anna (Gilbert) Boucher. Ginette married Maurice Gagnon on Aug. 31, 1957. They had three beautiful children. Maurice passed away in June of 1989.

Ginette worked at Bates Mill for 34 years, and did housekeeping until 70 years old. She was a longtime member of Holy Cross Church, and a member of Sabattus Senior Citizens. Ginette wintered many years in Florida, and took many trips to visit her daughter Diane and family in Virginia Beach, Va. She loved holidays, cooking, trips to Old Orchard and especially her flowers and her loving pets.

She is survived by her children: Michael (ReNae) of Greene, Diane (Nelson) Corniel of Virgina Beach, Va., and Brenda (Scott) Bumps of Hebron; her sister, Nicole (Robert) Blouin; brother, Claude “Butch” Boucher; sister-in-law, Pauline Boucher; special companion, Dick Thibodeau; and four grandchildren: Ryan and Katelynn Corniel and Addison and Emilia Gagnon.

She was predeceased by her two siblings: Lucette Fortin and Gaetan Boucher; sister-in-law, Linda Boucher; brother-in-law, Lionel Fortin; niece, Danielle Fortin, and her companion, Pearley Beaulieu.

Her warm heart and infectious smile will be missed by all who knew her. She was a loving mother, sister and memere, and will never be forgotten.

A very special thank-you to her nurse, Jamie Lewis, and all the nurses and staff at Hospice House, and a big “thank-You” to CMMC Oncology Associates.
