Jeanne Monique (Poulin) Hallée
1933 - 2017
WATERVILLE - Jeanne Monique (Poulin) Hallée, 84, of Waterville, passed away Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, at Oak Grove Center in Waterville.
The daughter of Edgar and Yvonne (Boulette) Poulin, Jeanne was born June 24, 1933, the feast day of St. John the Baptist. She spent her first few years on 17 Monument Street, in Winslow.
The family moved to 19 Gold Street, Waterville, when Jeanne started first grade at Notre Dame School with the Ursulines. During her grammar school days, she was honored with a Certificate of Achievement in French.
She was active in theater and music and was a good amateur pianist.
She attended junior high school on Pleasant Street. Upon entering high school, the family moved to 50 Water Street. She graduated from Waterville High School on Gilman Street in 1951.
During those years, she worked at the Main Theater (Bijou) as a concessionaire and at the ticket booth. Toward the end of her senior year, she worked as a filing clerk for Joseph Motors on College Avenue. After high school, she worked at Levine's Men's Clothing Store as a bookkeeper for nine years.
In the summer of 1955, she met her future husband, Eugene Roger Hallée. The two were married on June 4, 1957. She spent a two-year honeymoon in Paris, France, while Hallée completed his military obligation. She had the good fortune to visit the World's Fair in Brussels, Belgium, in 1958. She attended a pilgrimage at Lourdes, France, during the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin.
In January 1959, she and her husband traveled throughout Germany and Austria.
Back in Waterville, beginning in September 1959, she devoted herself as a mother raising three beautiful children. She was an accomplished seamstress, creating many of her own clothes and clothes for her children, as well as costumes for her father's plays at the Waterville Opera House.
Jeanne is survived by her husband, Eugene Roger Hallée; a son, Claude Hallée, and his wife Sylvia, of Waterville, and their children, Ryan and his wife, Lauren, and their daughter, Renee; daughter, Claire Breton, and her husband Denis, of South China, and their daughter, Hallee; and daughter, Denise Levesque, and her husband Richard, of Augusta, and their children, Lauren, Michael and Madeline. She is also survived by two sisters, Claire Donley, of Massachusetts; and Francine Pepin, of Virginia; one brother, Arthur Poulin, of New York; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, and two sisters, Priscilla Hallée and Claudette Ouellette.
The family would like to thank Dr. Stephanie Caulkins at Four Seasons; Dr. Abby Thrower, Ph.D., Oncology at HACCC; Dr. Mark Bolduc; and the caregivers at Oak Grove Center, for all the care given to Jeanne and the family.
