Norman W. Mathieu
1928 - 2017
Norman W. Mathieu, 89, passed away peacefully in Scarborough on June 11, 2017, from complications from a stroke, surrounded by loving family members. Norman was born in Winslow on Jan. 8, 1928, the son of Joseph and Cecile (Roy) Mathieu. He was a graduate of Winslow High School and spent two years in the United States Coast Guard. On July 8, 1950, Norman married Theresa J. Poulin of Winslow with whom he had four children and spent 63 loving years.
Through his career Norman was superintendent of Hoerner Waldorf Corporation in Waterville and also an employee of Scott Paper Company, Maine Central Rail Road and Winslow Junior High School. His hobbies included bowling, fishing, gardening, music, and watching the Boston Red Sox and Montreal Canadians.
He was a devout Catholic, a lifelong communicant and frequent cantor at St. John's Church in Winslow, which later became part of Corpus Christie Parish.
A gifted musician since the age of ten, Norman will be fondly remembered as a spiritually uplifting entertainer at the Muskie Center in Waterville along with area nursing homes and many private gatherings. His love of music lives on in his children and grandchildren and many extended family members.
From 2010 to 2013 Norman never left his beloved wife Theresa's side and was her full-time care-giver until she passed away on March 13, 2013. He is survived by his two sisters Arlene Rulman of Westbrook and Ann Roy of Rockland, a brother Anthony Mathieu of Winslow; daughters Barbara Mathieu of Oakland and Janet Bird of Scarborough; sons William Mathieu of Winslow and Paul Mathieu and wife Miriam Englund of Freedom, N.H.; his grandchildren Jenny Michaud of Portland, Joshua Michaud and his partner Misty Doyon of Oakland, Philip and Nathanael Mathieu of Freedom, N.H., Christopher Mathieu of Winslow and Danielle Zapata of Waterville; great-grandchildren Bryce and Jayceon Mathieu, and Chace Doyon; and numerous nieces and nephews and their children.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 21, at St. John's Church, 26 Monument St. in Winslow with a short committal service at Saint Francis Cemetery, Grove Street in Waterville and then followed by a celebration of Norman's life at Notre Dame Church, 112 Silver St. in Waterville at 12:30 p.m.
