SKOWHEGAN — On June 29, Lucienne Cayouette LaCasse’s family, caregivers and a few friends gathered together to celebrate her birthday. LaCasse turned 100 on July 3. She attributes one glass of wine, her Rosary and a 20-minute walk every day for her longevity. LaCasse has always been active and even while raising seven children, she helped run the family business, she kept in touch with friends, is a longtime parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and is the oldest member of the Daughters of Isabella Chapter in Skowhegan and an active member of her community. Once her husband, Ralph, retired from LaCasse’s Shoe Repair Shop, they could be seen taking daily walks, especially to Coburn Park. They were both familiar figures at Skowhegan High School’s football and basketball games. She is still active and can be seen walking up and down her street when the weather is good. She has lived in her home for 76 years, ever since she married Ralph. She has many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
