CAULFIELD PRESQUE ISLE – Louise A. Whitehead Caulfield, 93, died Oct. 1, 2010, surrounded by her family at Aroostook Health Center, Mars Hill. Born April 2, 1917, in Foxborough, Mass., she was the daughter of Barnett Eli Whitehead and Bridget Theresa Mullen Whitehead. A graduate of Girls High School of Boston, she and Robert married at Gate of Heaven Church, South Boston, Mass., on Robert’s 26th birthday. They moved to Presque Isle in 1945, where they lovingly raised their six children and were lifelong members of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Louise will be remembered for her generosity, her sense of beauty and her deep trust in God. The way she tended her gardens and cared for others made the world a more beautiful place. She expressed her love and sense of beauty through her paintings, which will be treasured by her children. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert; her infant daughter, Mary; her son, Arthur Edmund; her brothers, Charles and James; and her sister, Betty. She is survived by her sister, Mary E. Meyers of Boston; and five children and their spouses, Robert I. Caulfield Jr. and his love, Carol Schultz, of Largo, Fla., Ann Louise Albert and her husband, Peter, of Presque Isle, Peter Bernard Caulfield and his wife, Dorothe, of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Joseph Francis Caulfield and his wife, Diane, of Panama City, Fla., and Jane Frances Caulfield Brissette and her husband, Brian, of Presque Isle. She is also survived by her special daughter-in-law, Patricia Caulfield; 16 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren; friend and confidante, Mrs. Pat Cormier; and roommate, Rena Doak. The family is grateful for the loving compassion shown to Louise by Aroostook Health Center nurses and staff, as well as that of Dr. Jones. In honor of Louise’s wishes, there will be no calling hours. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with the Rev. Jean-Paul Labrie, celebrant. Interment will be at St. Mary’s North Main Street Cemetery with a reception afterward at Knights of Columbus Hall. Contributions in her memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
