Louise Marie (Guay) Lacasse

LONG POND TWP – Louise Marie (Guay) Lacasse, 73, of Long Pond Twp., passed away on Nov. 27, 2022 while at the Cedar Ridge Center in Skowhegan for a brief stay.

Louise was born in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, Canada on Feb. 1, 1949 to Paul and Jacqueline (Couture) Guay. She grew up in Holeb Twp., where her dad worked for the railroad as a telegraph operator. She loved playing with her siblings and cousins in Holeb. Louise later moved to Jackman where she went to the Sacred Heart Catholic Academy and met the love of her life, Francis who was from the public school, who she married on Dec. 28, 1968.

Louise loved bird watching, planting flowers, cooking, and visiting with friends and family. We will always remember her for her fascination of gold panning. Louise enjoyed watching her Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team. She was a loyal Christian with a very strong faith. She was very involved in her Catholic community from being a Sunday School Teacher and Eucharistic Minister. Louise was a proud member of the Ladies Auxiliary VFW #5723.

She especially loved her grandchildren and was famous for giving out chocolates to all of the children who came to visit her. She was a devoted wife, mom, and grandmother. Louise was a very tough individual who fought many illnesses including being a cancer survivor for the past 27 years.

Louise was predeceased by her parents, mother and father-in-law Eva (Couture) and Damien Lacasse; sister-in-law Louise (Allen) Lacasse, and brothers-in-law Mike Heavey and Jon Varney.

She is survived by her husband, Francis; and her two children, Ann (Lacasse) Veilleux and her husband Mark and Timothy Lacasse and his wife Jennifer (Nadeau). Louise is the proud Grammy of five grandchildren, Caleb, Owen, Kaira, Shelby, and Austin. In addition, she is survived by her sisters and one brother, Martha (Guay) Heavey, Lillian (Guay) Crawford and her husband Alan, and brother Roger and wife Jolene (Duval) Guay.
