Evelyn M. Bolduc
1932 - 2017
Our Beloved Mother, Evelyn M. Bolduc, 85, passed away peacefully, Thursday evening Sept. 28, 2017, in Benton, where she resided with her daughter, Anne. She was born in Oakland on August 29,1932, the daughter of Charles and Laura (Carpenter) Veilleux. She grew up in Waterville and left school at a young age to go to work to help support her family.
On Sept. 1, 1951, she married her true love, Lawrence Bolduc. They were wed at St. Francis Church. They were blessed with 44 years together.
Evelyn along with her soulmate Larry put their heart, soul and lots of elbow grease into creating rental properties known as "Bolduc Apts". They also owned and operated Sandy Beach Campground in Madison, where many family and friends gathered year after year...
They enjoyed many family vacations with their children going to St. Anne de beaupre almost yearly.
After retiring they enjoyed several bus tours to Washington D.C. and the Grand Ole Opry, along with many winters in Holiday, Fla. creating many lifetime friendships.
Evelyn was always volunteering and helping everywhere she could. Until she fell and broke her arm last year, she had volunteered for seven years at St. John Food Pantry helping to fed the hungry.
Anyone that knew Evelyn knew of her passion to over decorate at every holiday. She loved to put a smile on faces young and old. She enjoyed sneaking little treats on the neighbors doors.
She always started and ended her day the same exact way - by faithfully praying for all her family and friends, the sick and all the bad in the world....
She loved going out to eat, playing the Hee-Haw machine at Hollywood Slots, girl trip to Ellsworth each winter, Bingo, playing cards and watching her heart throb "James Drury" on "The Virginian". She even had a beta fish her granddaughter gave her named "James"
She loved scrapbooking and made many albums filled with loving family memories...
Her thrill was Saturday night dice games, where she would gloat every time she would beat her close and dear family friend Byron Brooks, but would pout if she lost.
Evelyn is survived by three children, Gary Bolduc and wife, Paula of Winslow, Anne Hodgdon of Benton and Louann Barnes of Skowhegan; her 10 grandchildren, Jaime, Danielle, Charlie, Ashley, Danny, Christina, Erica, Amy, Ryan and Dylan; also eight great-grandchildren, Tristan, Abby, Mason, Mikayla, Damian, Kayden, Aaliyah, Lucas and arriving in December Miss Kenzie. She is also survived by a brother, Robert Veilleux, two sisters, Violet Paquet and Theresa Cloutier and a brother-in-law, Roger Bolduc; along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Evelyn is predeceased by her loving husband, Larry; her son, Leo, her infant son Lawrence, Jr, and son-in-law, Chuck Hodgdon; also three sisters, Lillian Berube, Gloria Dawe and Yvette Butler and two brothers, Arthur Albert and Richard Vigue.
