Obituary

WATERVILLE - Amanda Theriault Rossignol passed away quietly and peacefully Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, at the Lakewood Continuing Care Center, in Waterville.Amanda was a lifelong resident of the Waterville/Winslow area. She was born May 25, 1925, in Waterville, one of eleven children of Charles and Marie Boudreau Theriault. She attended Waterville schools and was a graduate of Waterville Senior High School. She was the wife of the late Robert H. Rossignol. She is survived by one sister, Theresa Theriault Dutil (Norman Dutil), of Oakland; three children, Lucien Rossignol (Thomas Harris) of Lewes, Del., Donna Rossignol Westervelt (Peter Westervelt), of St. Louis, Mo., and Lee Rossignol (Karen Charette) of Gorham; six grandchildren, Anna Westervelt (Manuel Schenkl), of Freiburg, Germany, Kathleen Westervelt (Daniel Lesser) of Summerville, Mass., Mitchell Rossignol, Wilkins Rossignol, Bridget Rossignol, Madeline Rossignol, all of Gorham; and many nieces and nephews.Amanda enjoyed reading, crafts, playing card games and board games even into her later years, when failing eyesight made these hobbies more difficult. She took great pride in her French Canadian heritage and was especially proud of her family. Amanda was a person of enduring faith, one which sustained her throughout her life and in which she found strength and comfort. She met life's challenges with a very can-do attitude. Amanda was also a person of great generosity, a trait she shared with her husband, Bob. Perhaps her most endearing characteristic was her ability to not take herself too seriously and to be able to laugh at a good joke even if (and especially when) it was at her own expense. Her ability to mangle a good clichè, known to immediate family members as "Memère-isms" was uniquely hers. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 2 at Notre Dame du Perpetual Secours Church, on Silver Street, in Waterville
