Mary Jane Gourley
1950 - 2017
WATERVILLE - Mary Jane Gourley, 67, of Waterville, went to her heavenly home on Aug. 5, 2017.
She was born May 5, 1950, in Sangerville, the daughter of Hugh Gourley and Clara (Trafton) Gourley Cowette.
She loved going to the Wellington Church, Camp Sign-A-Watha, four-wheeling, the movies, and going to Sea Dogs games. She also loved animals and spending time with her family.
For many years, she attended the L.C. Dill Center in their Leaf program in Skowhegan. She then went on to the Goodwill programs in Waterville for many years.
She loved the home that she lived in and the staff at Petra Home in Waterville. She had so many special people in her life at the Petra Home. Everywhere she went, she was loved by all, and she loved them unconditionally in return. The family would like to thank Stephanie Emmens, who has been a special person in Mary Jane's life for many years.
She is survived by her sister, Charlotte (Gourley) Stewart, and Glenwood, of Wellington; and her sister in-law, Barbara Gourley, of Harmony; several nieces and nephews, Glenda, Tammy, Tony, Jinx, Lori, Peter, Terry, Chris, Tommy and Stacy; and many great-nieces and great-nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents; her sister, Florence Harrington, of Sangerville; three brothers, Ardane Gourley, of Harmony; Michael Gourley, of Harmony; and Bernie Gourley, of Sangerville; and her niece, Cathy Stewart, of Dexter.
