Sandra Marie Damren
1950 - 2016
WINDSOR - Heaven gained a new angel on Dec. 10, 2016, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. Sandra Marie Damren (LaPierre), 65, was born in Augusta on Dec. 29, 1950, the first child to Aime and Constance (Marois) LaPierre of Augusta.
After her birth, she quickly became the older sister to seven siblings and an adopted cousin.
She is survived by her three children, Melissa Damren of Winthrop, Mark Damren and wife Julie of Newburyport, Mass. and Michelle Damren-Sawyer and husband Mark of Wake Forest, NC; grandson Nicolas Plaisted and wife Avery of Oakland, and Colbey Plaisted-Bryant and her husband Peter of Fort Worth, Texas. Her siblings include Gloria LaPierre, Kenneth LaPierre (wife Joy), Jane LaPierre, Danny LaPierre (wife Paula), Lisa Cote-LaPierre, Gary LaPierre (wife Tammy), Amy Steiniger (husband Jon) and a very special cousin Liz Hopkins (husband Gary) of Manchester.
Born and raised in Augusta to a large French Catholic family, she attended St. Augustine and Cony High School, marrying Norman Damren on Oct. 7, 1967, who predeceased her on the first day of spring, 2006. Sandra's first two grandchildren, Nicolas and Colbey Plaisted were born in 1993 and 1998 to her daughter Melissa, two children that brought her much joy. In 2006, she was blessed by the birth of two additional grandchildren, Ella Mary to her daughter Michelle and Mateo Douglas to her son Mark. Sandra's circle of love was complete by the love of her children and grandchildren.
After several years as a stay at home mother, she became employed by the State of Maine at the Department of Motor Vehicles, where she developed many close friendships. No love, however was greater than the love she had for her Maine State Police Crime Lab family, when in 2001, she joined what would become her second family as the Office Manager. Over the past 16 years, she has been the "office mother", developing bonds that will last a lifetime for many.
Sandra was an active member of the American Legion Women's Auxiliary and was very involved in the St. Michael's and St. Denis Parishes for the past several years. She enjoyed traveling with her family and never missed an opportunity to join her siblings on cruises and visit her family in their prospective locations. Her greatest enjoyment was spending time with the ones she loved. She loved to laugh and surrounded herself with positive, humorous people, most of which her own children and co-workers.
Please join her family for visiting hours at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta, on Friday, Dec. 16 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, Dec. 17 at 11 a.m. at St. Augustine Catholic Church, Northern Ave., Augusta.
