Jeannette Gregoire

LEWISTON – Jeannette Gregoire, 92, of Lewiston, peacefully passed away on Thursday June 6, 2019 at Montello Manor in Lewiston. She was born in Lewiston on Dec. 14, 1926, a daughter of the late Lorenzo and Rebecca (Bourget) Perreault. She grew up in the Lewiston area and attended local schools there. She was a graduate of Lewiston High School.

After high school, she married the love of her life, Jacques Gregoire at St. Peter’s Church in Lewiston and they started a family together. During that time, Jeannette tended to the needs of her family and their home.

Jeannette will always be remembered for being a very loving, caring and devoted woman. Some of her greatest passions in life were spending quality time with her family, especially during the holidays. Even up until recently she still wanted to host Christmas Eve at the house. Jeannette always loved painting and home décor. She will be deeply missed by many.

She is survived by her children, Guy Gregoire of Lewiston, Maurice “Moe” Gregoire and his wife, Bonita “Bunny” of Greene, Joline Hinkley and her husband, Gil of Lewiston. She also leaves behind her sister, Connie Wall and her husband, James of Pennsylvania; nine grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter.

She was predeceased by her brother, Louie Perreault and his wife, Rita.
