Germaine Theresa Daigneault
1935 - 2018
WINSLOW - Germaine Theresa (LaCroix) Daigneault passed into the hands of God on Jan. 1, 2018, following a brave struggle with failing health, surrounded by her loving husband and children.
Born June 29, 1935, to Juliette and Denis LaCroix in Waterville, Germaine was the oldest of three daughters; together, they spent their time singing around the piano and visiting downtown Waterville. A family of French-Canadian heritage, they grew up speaking French and regularly attending mass to build a meaningful relationship with God. Her deep-rooted Catholic faith encompassed every aspect of her life.
After graduating from Winslow High School in 1953, Germaine met and married Frederick Daigneault, the love of her life, on July 11, 1959. The couple moved to Winslow soon after to raise their family of ten. While some would consider this overwhelming, a large family was her dream fulfilled. Later, she was overjoyed with the addition of each grandchild. She especially treasured family time, hosting weekly Sunday dinners and celebrating the holidays.
A wife, mother, doting grandmother, and great-grandmother, Germaine will be remembered by her entire family for her generosity and compassion. She lived for her family and loved unconditionally.
Germaine is predeceased by her parents, Juliette and Denis LaCroix; and her sister, Lorette LaCroix. She is survived by her husband, Frederick Daigneault; her sister, Gertrude Huard, and her husband, Roland Huard; her 10 children and their spouses; her 33 grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
Visiting hours will be held on Friday, Jan. 5 at Veilleux Funeral Home, 8 Elm St., Waterville from 4 to 7 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Saturday, Jan. 6 at 11 a.m. at St. John the Baptist Church, Monument Street in Winslow. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Veilleux Funeral Home
