Obituary for Lucille F. Thibodeau

Mattawamkeag – Lucille F. Thibodeau, 89, devoted wife of the late Sylvio Thibodeau, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, November 27, 2022. She was born January 12, 1933, in St. Francis, the daughter of Joseph and Tressa (Jandreau) Charette.

Lucille was a hard working woman and was proud to have operated Maynard Maxwell’s potato harvester – the first one in Lee – for many years. She enjoyed that work and would often come home so covered in potato dust she was unrecognizable to her family! Lucille also was a “Dorm Mother” at Lee Academy where she was truly a “second mother” to many of the resident students and was a beloved staff member. In recent years she liked doing word search puzzles and spending time at her guilty pleasure – Hollywood Casino. Lucille will be remembered as a loving and caring person who exemplified her strong Catholic faith. She loved her family and friends, and was loved by all in return – even her grandchildren’s friends affectionately called her “Mimi”.

Lucille is survived by two daughters, Suzan Ireland, and Ann Smith and her husband Terry; three grandchildren, Thomas Ludden, Robert Smith and his partner Jasmine Folster, and Emily Smith; five great grandchildren, Douglas Carmichael, Jacob Ludden, Mikah Smith, Willow Dill, and Phoebe Smith; a sister Alvia Jandreau; a sister in law Bernice Charette; and thirty-three first nieces and nephews whom she adored; and great friends Sherri, Janice, and Gerry. In addition to her parents and her husband, Lucille was predeceased by a grandson, Scott Ludden, siblings Ermance Pelletier, Patricia Martin, Albert Charette, Valerie Charette, and Fern Charette, and siblings in law Melvin Thibodeau and Theresa, Kit Thibodeau and wife Linda, and Betty Brann and Don.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00AM Saturday, May 6, 2023 at Our Lady of the Eucharist, St. Mary of Lourde’s Catholic Church, 142 Main Street, Lincoln with the Rev. Tony Chinnaiyan, HGN, Pastor, officiating. Burial at the Lincoln Cemetery. Arrangements are by Lamson Funeral Home, Clay Chapel, Lincoln.
