CANTERBURY, Conn. - Lucille Y. LaPlante, 89, passed away at her home surrounded by her loving family on May 8, 2017. She was born in Cornville, Maine, on July 16, 1927, the daughter of John and Yvonne Thebarge. She graduated from Norridgewock High School in 1945, the last class to graduate from the high school.
On May 3, 1947, she married Emile J. LaPlante at the Notre Dame de Lourdes Church in Skowhegan.

All will remember the many dances, card parties, camping vacations and snowmobile trips. She was active alumnus of her high school and active member of the Cursillo groups in the various parishes where they lived. She was an active member and volunteer of the Skowhegan Sno-Hawks, the Village Improvement Association, and various school and church activities.
