WHITEFIELD - Roxanne Gerard Lincoln, 56, of Whitefield, passed away peacefully on Oct. 28, 2013, surrounded by her loved ones after a long, courageous battle with breast cancer and cirrhosis of the liver.
Roxanne was born on July 30, 1957, in Augusta, to Harold Sr. and Mary (Holland) Gerard. In 1973, Roxanne met the love of her life, Leroy C. Lincoln Sr. After a whirlwind romance, they were married three months later on April 20, 1974.
After many years in the customer service industry and years as a mill worker, Roxanne, as a young mother and wife, made the decision to go back to school. Through much hard work and determination, she completed her General Educational Development diploma and was able to better herself and her young family. At that time, she also held positions as a first class pipe-fitter, bank courier, a finish carpenter, waitress and a laundromat attendant.
The last position she held with great enjoyment was as an associate at IGA.
Roxanne was a creative woman. She found outlets through knitting, sewing, crocheting and paper-cutting. Roxanne enjoyed painting, especially seascapes.
She is survived by her husband; sons Leroy Lincoln Jr. and wife Dawn, of Lincolnville, and Mark Lincoln and wife Kimberly, of Wiscasset; and grandchildren Cassandra Lincoln, and Kaitlin and Jameson Lincoln.
She is also survived by a brother, Harold Gerard Jr., and wife Lynn, of Gardiner; a sister, Linda Bowden, and husband Bob, of Augusta; a brother, Gary Gerard, and Gayle Hemphill, of Augusta; a sister, Wanda Poulin, and husband Don, of Randolph; a sister-in-law, Joan Gerard, of Waterville; a sister, Shirley Richardson, and husband John, of Jay; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
A potluck gathering will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at Alna Church. Donations may be made to the Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care.
