MILLINOCKET – Marilyn D. Saucier, 76, wife of the late Paul Saucier, died Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012, surrounded by family at a Millinocket hospital. She was born June 2, 1935, in Fort Kent, daughter of Cyril and Anna (Paradis) Bouthot.
Marilyn was married to Paul for 47 years and they shared many wonderful times together. Prior to his death, they enjoyed spending time with family at their camp in Canada and wintering in Florida. Marilyn worked at Great Northern Paper Co., Millinocket for several years, and will also be remembered as a crossing guard in Millinocket. In recent years, Marilyn enjoyed a more reserved lifestyle, faithfully watching "Wheel of Fortune" every night, and playing games such as backgammon, cribbage and cards. Each year since Paul’s death, Marilyn and her children released a balloon on his birthday, Feb. 11. This year, Marilyn was too ill to release a balloon, so she became his balloon!
She is survived by three children, Anna "Betty Boop" Kubera and her husband, Bob, of Millinocket, Paul R. Saucier, Jr. and his wife, Jill, and Debra "Debbie" Roach and her husband, Martin "Marty," all of Gorham; two grandchildren, Justin Paul Kubera and his fiancee, Kasie Kimball, of Brewer, and John Paul Roach of Gorham; brother, Roland Bouthot and his wife, Lucienne, of Fort Kent; sister, Randie Powloski and her husband, Ron, of Dover, Del.; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Marilyn will also be missed by her special little furry friend, Toby John. In addition to her parents and her husband, Marilyn was predeceased by a sister, Kate Gervais.
