Constance M. St. Pierre

AUBURN – Constance M. St. Pierre, 91, of Auburn, died peacefully at her home on Saturday Jan. 8, 2022, after a long and full life.

Born in Lewiston on Sept. 21, 1930, she was the daughter of Henri and Melida McGraw Simard. Educated in local schools, she was a 1949 graduate of Lewiston High School, and later attended Bliss Business College.

At the age of 13, she met Romeo J. St. Pierre and said she was going to marry him someday. Her prophecy was fulfilled when they were wed on April 15, 1950. They would go on to build a beautiful family together and were inseparable until his passing in 2007.

This love left a legacy that includes their two sons and two daughters, Diane Whiting and her husband Elmer of Auburn, Henri St. Pierre and his wife Patricia of Raymond, Tina-Marie Driscoll and her husband Bruce of Chesterville, and Marc St. Pierre and his wife Diane of Lewiston. In addition to her beloved children, Connie leaves behind nine grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren, who she all loved dearly.

Besides being a devoted wife and mother, she worked several different jobs in bookkeeping and retail over the years, retiring from Sears after 30 years.

Connie was a lover of the warm weather and sun. She enjoyed many summers camping in Old Orchard Beach with her children and then grandchildren teaching them how to swim and making lasting memories. In addition to her summers camping, she spent many winters escaping the cold in Dunedin, Fla. alongside close friends Jean and Roland Collette, where she enjoyed socializing with countless friends and endless card games. Connie enjoyed many adventures traveling with her husband including trips to the Panama Canal and Hawaii to name a few. Connie was also a talented seamstress who enjoyed making beautiful knitted items for her family.

During the night of Jan. 7, our mother took her last breath and joined our father and those who went before her. We all miss her so much already, but find comfort in knowing she is at peace. Services will be held Thursday, Jan. 13 at 1 p.m., at Holy Family Church. Interment, St. Peter’s Cemetery. A special thanks to the Collette Monument family.
