LEWISTON – Yvette (Letourneau) Dubuc, 92, of Lewiston, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, at home, with her loving family by her side. Yvette was borin in Burke, Vt., on July 13, 1926, the daughter of the late Eugene and Emeremtienne (Roy) Letourneau. She attended local schools graduating from Lewiston High School. She was a beloved wife and homemaker for many years and was also a well-known waitress at the finer restaurants in the area. She was a loving woman who was immensely proud of her family and her home.  As a wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother and great-grandmother and friend, the world was a better place with her in it.  In addition to her family and beloved relatives, she enjoyed cooking and she was considered an exceptional cook. She had a great love and wisdom in the use of words. “This too will pass” was an expression she used to help calm a tense situation.  She taught her children and grandchildren to not let pride get in the way to resolving problems that may arise.  This was the legacy she left her family.

Yvette is survived by her sons:  Ronald Dubuc and wife, Susan, Michael Dubuc and fiancée, Deborah Tempesta; grandchildren:  Aimee Brown, Michael Ryan Dubuc, Jenna Footer and husband, Nate Dubuc; great-grandchildren: Baylee and Sophia Brown, Noah and Autumn Footer and Jonathon.
