Constance J. Kroken

LISBON FALLS – Constance J. Kroken of Lisbon Falls, passed away on Sunday March 19, 2023 at her home with family at her side from natural causes.

She was born in Lewiston to Frank and Mary Janec. Constance was educated in the Lisbon schools and graduated in 1959. After graduation she worked at the local Worumbo mill doing secretarial work.

Then, in June of 1960, she married the love of her life, Randall Kroken, also from Lisbon Falls. She remained in Lisbon Falls until 1963. She then moved to North Reading, Mass. to be joined with her husband who at the time was working at MIT and going to school at Northeast University. Connie occupied her time by breeding Toy Poodles for sale. To fill the gap in her life, Randall and Connie adopted a girl, Justine, and a boy, Randy.

This worked well with her and once the kids were old enough to take care of themselves she went to work for Randall as his secretary. Like her husband, Randall, she could never really call living in Massachusetts home. She, too, longed to be in Maine, living in Lisbon Falls. When Randall retired in 1997, they moved back to what was known as home, Lisbon Falls.

Constance is survived by her loving husband, Randall; daughter, Justine and husband Frank Fucci, two grandsons Nicholas and Joey Fucci; and son, Randy.

Constance was predeceased by her parents Frank and Mary Janec.

A private graveside service will take place later in the spring at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Lisbon Falls.
