Paula Veilleux
1931 - 2018
WINSLOW - Paula Veilleux, 86, of Winslow, was called to the Lord on Sunday, April 8, 2018, at Avita of Wells, after a long, courageous battle with Alzheimer's Disease.
She was born on April 23, 1931, in Maria, Quebec. She was one of eight children of Eveline (Guite) and Leonard Bujold.
She came to Waterville in 1947, and worked as a seamstress at C.F. Hathaway, in Waterville. At the age of 19, she met her husband, James Veilleux, at the roller rink. They were happily married for 58 years. Together they had six children.
Paula was a dedicated and loving wife and mother. She was also employed as a seamstress at The Curtainshop for many years. She was well-known for her mending skills within her family, friends and community.
She and James maintained a large vegetable garden, and canned a good portion of their produce. She was an excellent cook, known for her signature spaghetti sauce, and always enjoyed trying new recipes.
She also taught CCD at St. John's Catholic School for many years. In her free time, she enjoyed playing cards, going for walks, dancing, swimming, and spending time with her family.
Paula will be remembered as a gentle and loving woman, who was patient, and had a great sense of humor. The elaborate meals she made for holidays and family gatherings made those events even more special. She had the most beautiful eyes, and amazing smile, that would light up any room. She will be greatly missed by all those who loved and cared for her.
Paula is survived by her six children, David Veilleux of Dover, N.H., Dana Veilleux of Somersworth, N.H., Michelle Vigue and husband Michael of North Waterboro, Alan Veilleux of Winslow, Lee Veilleux and wife Stacy of Scarborough, and Eileen Veilleux of Westbrook; nine grandchildren, Mitchell, Dylan, Thomas, Melissa, Nicholas, Danielle, Brianna, Desirée, and Taylor; seven brothers and sisters, Adrienne Desveaux and husband Ted of Westbrook, Sr. Dorothy Bujold of Waterville, Leo Bujold and wife Olivette of Skowhegan, Noella Pelletier and husband Charles of Winslow, Fern Bard and husband Leland of Waterville, Harvey Bujold and partner Karen Nagle of Bonita Springs, Fla., Sr. Rita Bujold of France; as well as several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, James, in 2012.
The family would like to thank the outstanding staff at Avita of Wells, and Beacon Hospice, for their dedicated, professional service, and loving care they provided to Paula throughout her journey with Alzheimer's. Paula had a special place in the hearts of those who cared for her. You will never be forgotten!
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, April 13, 2018, at 11 a.m., at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 26 Monument St., Winslow.
