Ann (Vose) Holliday #1

GRANBY, Conn. - Ann (Vose) Holliday, 73, formerly of East Granby, Conn., passed away peacefully Saturday, May 21, 2011, at the McLean Home, Simsbury, Conn. Ann was born March 18, 1938, in Bangor, daughter of the late John and Helen (Yates) Vose. She grew up in Maine and then attended Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley, Mass., earning her bachelor's degree in religion in 1960. A lifelong learner, she continued her studies by attending Hartford Theological Seminary, as well as taking classes at Bangor Theological Seminary in Maine, later earning her Master of Arts degree in early elementary education from the University of Hartford in Connecticut. After raising her two daughters, Kim and Heidi, she turned her love of learning, books and children into a career as a children's librarian. Serving in Bloomfield, Conn., Granby, Conn., and Windsor Locks, Conn., libraries before her retirement, she was instrumental in creating and designing engaging programs, which connected children to the natural world. She channeled her passion for the environment into public service by serving as secretary on East Granby Conservation Commission for many years. Her personal library was substantial and expansive. Her interests ranged from archaeology to zoology, with a special emphasis on the importance of cultural narrative - from psychological archetype to mythology and folktales. Her deep interest in family history and genealogy dubbed her the moniker, "Keeper of the Family Stories." She was gifted at being able to find the good in others. She was the honorary or adopted grandmother for several generations of neighborhood children - and animals - always appreciating the characteristics that made each child special. Ann was a member of East Granby Congregational Church, East Granby, Conn., for more than 40 years. She was a founding member of their English handbell choir, served as the first director of Christian education, and served on various boards and committees throughout the years. Her deeply aesthetic and passionate nature found expression in elegant needlework, symphonically arranged gardens, and a mastery of a variety of musical instruments, watercolor and oil painting, and writing poetry and essays. She also found great joy spending time with her children and their families, especially her three grandchildren. She is survived by her two daughters, Kimberly A. Holliday and her husband, Gregory A. Netland, of Boxford, Mass., and Heidi H. St. Jean and her husband, Mark, of Simsbury, Conn.; and her three grandchildren, Cameron, Catherine and Sarah Netland. She also leaves a brother, Robert W. Vose and his wife, Mary Lou Mayer, of West Hartford, Conn.; as well as several first cousins and extended family. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at East Granby Congregational Church, 9 Rainbow Road, East Granby, Conn., with a reception afterward. Burial will be private at Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor. Donations in Ann's memory may be made to Connecticut Audubon Society, 2325 Burr St., Fairfield, CT 06824 or National Wildlife Federation, P.O.

Franklin Barton Allen #1

SCARBOROUGH - Franklin Barton Allen, an antiques dealer and auctioneer who was also an avid mountain climber and pilot, died Friday, May 27, 2011, after a prolonged illness. He was 89. He was born May 7, 1922, at his family's home on Craigie Street in Portland, the youngest child of Neal Woodside Allen and Margaret Stevens Allen. He attended grade school in Portland and graduated in 1941 from Deering High School, where he was a hurdler and sprinter on the track team and a member of the National Honor Society. He entered Bowdoin College in 1941 but interrupted his studies the following year to join the, Air Corps. In mid-1944 he was assigned to the 6th Air Force in Panama, whose primary mission during World War II was maritime patrol to protect the Panama Canal from enemy attack. Allen, a pilot of the B-24 Liberator, was stationed in Panama and later the Galapagos Islands before his discharge from the military in early 1946. On July 20, 1946, he married Mary Rita Madison, whom he had met in 1943 at a USO dance in her hometown, Syracuse, N.Y., where he took pre-flight training. The couple, who were together for 63 years, settled initially in Brunswick, where Allen resumed his studies at Bowdoin, receiving a bachelor's degree in history in 1947. They resided for several years in Portland before moving in 1952 to 124 Mitchell Road in South Portland, where they raised their six children and would live for the next 49 years. After college, Allen went to work for his family's antiques and auctioneering business, F.O. Bailey Co. Inc. in Portland. He learned antiques from his father, became treasurer of the company, and in 1967 was named its president, the third generation of his family to lead the business. Over the decades, Allen conducted numerous insurance appraisals and summertime estate auctions throughout Maine and in New Hampshire for F.O. Bailey. "He was a very good auctioneer," recalled Helen Smith Hurd, who worked with Allen for 27 years. What made him special, she added, was the tenor of "his voice, and the fact that I don't think he ever missed a bid." Even while running a business and raising his family, Allen pursued the other great passions of his life: mountain climbing and aviation. A hiker since his youth, he climbed the 100 tallest mountains in New England, as well as countless smaller peaks in New England and beyond. For several years he was president of the Maine Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. "He loved hiking in the White Mountains, or wherever he was," said his daughter Mary. "If there was a mountain, or even a hill, he would hike it." "Dad embodied preservation, not only historically but environmentally," said his daughter Nancy. "He took each ... of us hiking from a very early age and taught us the wonders of the Maine woods and mountains." Allen got to combine his interests in a memorable way in August 1982, when for three weeks he and his son Peter, also a pilot, flew Allen's Cessna 150, a two-seater, on a three-week trip to Alaska. They landed and camped out at several grass and gravel airfields in the U.S. and Canada along the way to Denali National Park, where they spent a week hiking and camping. "It was just a wonderful experience," Peter said of the trip with his father. Allen remained active well into his retirement years, and gave up flying only at the age of 76. He attended reunions of his World War II squadron and became involved in efforts seeking the return of the remains of one of his former squadron mates, who was shot down over North Korea in 1952. The remains of the pilot and his crew were returned to the U.S. in the mid-1990s. Also during retirement, Allen harvested and sold - from the driveway of his home in South Portland - Christmas trees he had grown on family land on Douglas Hill in Sebago. Allen was known for his calm and friendly demeanor. "His kind, quiet example has shaped who I am and who I aspire to be as a husband, father and friend," said Peter's lifelong friend John Devine, who grew up across from the Allens. "One of his most important legacies to us was to enjoy the life you have, no matter what your circumstances or difficulties," said his daughter Katherine. Allen, who enjoyed singing to and with his children as they grew up, was a member of the Glee Club while a student at Bowdoin. In his adult years, he volunteered with the Civil Air Patrol in Maine, belonged to the Bald Eagle Flying Club in Portland, and was a member of the Portland, . He also conducted on-air auctions at WCBB-TV in Lewiston to benefit public television in Maine. In addition to his wife and a son, Christopher S. Allen, he was predeceased by his parents; three brothers, Charles W. Allen, Neal W. Allen Jr., and Frederick N. Allen; two sisters, Louise Allen and Barbara Allen Atwood; and a daughter-in-law, Linda M. McRea. He is survived by three daughters, Mary E. Allen of Olney, Md., Katherine A. MacLeod and her husband, George, of East Orland, and Nancy A. Vaughn and her husband, Jeffrey, of Port Orange, Fla.; two sons, Timothy J. Allen of Bangor and Peter W. Allen and his wife, Jennifer, of Cape Elizabeth; eight grandchildren, Daniel MacLeod of Brooklyn, N.Y., Molly MacLeod of Highland Park, N.J., Leah MacLeod of Portland, Connor MacLeod of East Orland, Joseph and Hannah Allen of Cape Elizabeth, and Brian and Amy Vaughn of Port Orange; and several nephews and nieces. Visiting hours will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, June 6, at Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland, where a funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 7. Interment will follow at the family plot on Douglas Hill in Sebago.

Lee F. (Sulpice) Williams*

She lost her father when she was only 8, and helped her mother raise her younger siblings, whom she adored. Because she lost her father so young, she treasured her relationship with her heavenly Father. She relied on God's word, and posted scriptures on the doorposts.

They raised chickens, pigs and cows, and struggled daily with the hardships of lack and isolation., Lee enjoyed working beside her husband of 60 years as he made homemade wooden crafts that she painted. They would often give away their toys after watching children's eyes light up. She enjoyed being a Brownie leader, gardening, tole painting, traveling to craft shows and attending church, but most of all, she loved being with her children and grandchildren., She was predeceased by her husband, Richard; and two grandchildren, Trisha Johnson and Angela Hubbard., Survivors include her children, Carol Hustus and husband Sterling of Avon Park, Fla., Linda Johnson and husband William of Thorndike, Dorothy Waterman and husband James of Freedom, Jane Hubbard and husband Bruce of Unity, Richard Williams and wife Dorothy of Gardner, Mass., Eileen Williams of Oregon, and Kathleen Hughes of Colorado; her siblings, Gwen Phieffer and husband Mark of Miami, Fla., Carol Miller and husband Walter of California, and Paul and Henry Sulpice; grandchildren Karen O'Riley and husband Randy, David Hustus and wife Chris, Robin Day, Jason Johnson and wife Heidi, Julie Evenson and husband Jon, Travis Johnson, Kevin Waterman and wife Tracie, Eric Waterman and wife Cathy, Jordan, Rebecca, Jonathan, Jacob, Joshua, Tobey Johnson, Brian Johnson, Aaliyah Johnson, Jenna Johnson, Kirby Hubbard, Adam Hubbard, Daniel Williams, Mark Williams, Samuel Williams, Michael Williams, Amanda Hughes and Zachary Hughes; great-grandchildren Rebecca, Jesse, Timothy, Kaitlyn, Keri, Brad, Abby, Spencer, Nathan, Kaley, Kelsey, Makaya, Alyson, Madison, Rhiannon, Shane, Brenden, Alexis, Ethan, Scarlet and Stephen; and one great-great-grandchild, Kane., Funeral service was held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 28, 2011, at Knox Ridge Baptist Church with Pastor John Tabor officiating.

Ludger "Ti Lou" Ouellet

FORT KENT - Ludger "Ti Lou" Ouellet left this world as he lived his life, with peace and grace, early in the morning May 31, 2011. During his life of nine decades, Ludger created a legacy of integrity, generosity, love and citizenship as a model for others to emulate. "Ti Lou" was very proud of being 90 years old... "going on 91," as he began saying the day after his birthday. He was born Nov. 22, 1920, the third son of Joseph and Modeste (Roy) Ouellet. Lou was a lifelong communicant at St. Louis Parish, where he began his spiritual life as an altar server. Lou received his early education at St. Louis Covent School and Madawaska Training School, Fort Kent. He furthered his education at Bliss Business College, Lewiston. Upon returning to his hometown, he worked for his Uncle Emile Ouellet, who owned a Ford dealership. Shortly thereafter in 1947, he married Sylvia "Vi" Roy, the love of his life. In the passage of time, they became the parents of five children and grandparents to three boys. Ludger eventually came to own the Ford dealership, moved it to its present location on East Main Street, Fort Kent, and went on to create an association with the public that lasted 42 years, retiring in 1988. Lou's commitment to his community was evident in many ways. He found the time to participate in many leadership roles as the town grew. He was the founder of Fort Kent Credit Union, treasurer of Fort Kent Housing Corp., director of Valley Snow Riders Club, director of Fish River Lake Water Quality Association, past president and treasurer of the Senior Citizens Club, and charter member of Fort Kent Golf Course. In addition, he has been a member of, , Jaycees, the chamber of commerce, Church Life Commission, Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, Catholic Order of Foresters, and RSVP senior volunteers, to name a few. "Ti Lou" and his beloved wife, Vi, thoroughly enjoyed their retirement together. The four seasons of the St. John Valley were special to them. They golfed for many years, but especially enjoyed snowmobiling in the winter, spring fiddlehead picking, partridge hunting at Rock's camp in the fall, and entertaining during summers at the family camp, "The Seven O's." Lou spent the last year and a half living at Crosswinds, where he was lovingly referred to as "Mr. Lou." The family is grateful to have his residency there be filled with love, concern and personalization by the entire Crosswinds family. Whether one referred to him as Dad, Pepere, Ti Lou or Mr. Lou, this man will be deeply missed. Lou was predeceased by his devoted wife, Vi, in October 2009; by his parents; brothers, Valier Ouellet and Rock Ouellet; and sisters, Lorette, Martha and Evangeline. He is survived by his sister, Delores Blanchette; and children, Louise Kirkland and husband, Kenneth, of Brewer, James and his wife, Marie, of Sebastian, Fla., Bob and his wife, Val, of Wallagrass, Susan Pozanac and husband, Chuck, of Riverside, Calif., and Denise Nowinski of North Yarmouth. Left to carry on Pepere's legacy are three adoring grandsons, Aaron and Mitchell Ouellet and Austin Nowinski. Friends may call 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Friday, June 3, at Daigle Funeral Home, Fort Kent. A Mass of Christian burial with full fourth degree honors will be celebrated 1 p.m. Friday at St. Louis Catholic Church, Fort Kent. Committal services will be afterward at the parish cemetery.
