Maple L. Gross

AUBURN – Maple L. Gross, a.k.a “Auntie M.”, 68, of Lewiston, died peacefully, Thursday, May 30, 2019, at The Androscoggin Hospice House. Maple’s long time love for her Red Hat family has helped keep her strong through the years. She also loved the slots! Often she would walk around casinos in Vegas, Biloxi and yes, Oxford, asking everyone “Has anyone seen my shirt? I lost it playing the slots!” Maple lived her life the way she wanted, loved many the best she could and enjoyed making everyone laugh! She will be greatly missed by many.

She is survived by her husband, Gerry Gross a.k.a. “Dad”; daughter, Sarah MacDonald; son, Gary Williamson; daughter, Rebecca Wardwell; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents and younger brother, Skeet.
