1935 – 2018

LEWISTON – Marcella Elise Plourde Bourgoin, 83, died at home, in Lewiston, Oct. 10, 2018, at home with her loving daughter by her side.

She was born on June 1, 1935, in St. Quentin, New Brunswick, Canada, one of 12 children born to parents Camille and Angelina (Cyr) Plourde.

She was married to the late Donat H. Bourgoin, and they had one daughter, whom they raised in Madawaska, Maine. She moved to Lewiston 13 years ago.

Marcella was a very strong and loving soul, who always demonstrated such strength and tenacity throughout her medical adversity. She won many awards for all her hours of volunteering. She loved to knit and crochet mittens, washcloths, and “pichous”. She also loved reading and playing cards. Her greatest love was her family. They were her world, and she especially adored and cherished her grandchildren. She was so proud of everything they did and went to great lengths to attend all their activities and shows. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.  She was a devote Catholic and attended Holy Family Church.


She is survived by her devoted daughter, Pamela Hart, husband Stephen, and their children Abigail and Jack of Auburn, Maine.  Her brother Joseph and wife Rose Plourde of Plainville, Conn., her sister Sylvia Lavoie of Windsor, Conn., sister-in-laws, Carline Plourde of South Windsor, Conn., and Joann Plourde of New Britain, Conn., and many cherished nieces and nephews, and dear friends.

She is predeceased by her parents, her husband, her brothers, Eymard and wife Gertrude Plourde, Emery and wife Georgette Plourde, Arthur, Leon, George, Rene, and Guy Plourde, and her sisters Georgette Allard and Josephine Plourde.

The family would like to thank Beacon Hospice for all their loving care and support, especially Jaimie Lefebvre, Chantel Pelletier, Anna Minas and Angela Lutzenburger. She adored and loved “her girls”.

Funeral mass will be held on Oct. 20 at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, South Windsor Conn., at 10 a.m., with burial service and luncheon following at Nutmeg Restaurant & Banquet in East Windsor, Conn. Memorial Service will be held at Oak Park, Lewiston, Maine, on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 1 p.m.
