CARIBOU – Annette Marie (St. Jean) Theriault, 82, went to be with the Lord at approximately 10:50 p.m. Oct. 16, 2012, surrounded by her family at Caribou Nursing Home, after a long courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. She was born Sept. 28, 1930, daughter of the late Adelard St. Jean and Alpheda (Ouellette) St. Jean of St. Francis, New Brunswick.
Annette worked for more than 20 years at a Fort Kent hospital in the nursery, where she worked as a certified nurse’s aide caring for all the moms and babies. She was a loving, caring, devoted and selfless mother and grandmother who sacrificed many things to be with family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She had many hobbies which included cooking for everyone, playing cards, gardening, watching the NBA on TV, and she also had a great love for line dancing. Her biggest love of all, though, was her family and her career as a certified nurse’s aide.
Annette will be remembered by two sons, Robert Theriault and his wife, Lorraine, of Peoria, Ariz., and Micheal Theriault of Bethany, Conn.; two daughters, Mona St. Jean of Caribou and Lisa Theriault and her husband, Brad, of Caribou; and a sister, Marie-May Nadeau of Clair, New Brunswick. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Bobby Theriault, Danielle Theriault, Matthew Theriault, Megan Theriault and Amy Trombley; three great-grandchildren, Schuyler Smith, Caleb Trombley and Nevaeh Trombley; and several nieces and nephews who live in various states including Maine and Canada. She was predeceased by her former husband, Leonard Theriault of Fort Kent, who passed away in the spring of 2000; all her brothers, Bill, Reno, Charley, Arthur and Jean Claude; and a son, Daniel Theriault and his wife, Candace, and daughter, Jennifer, all of Leominster, Mass.
A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 19, at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Parish of the Precious Blood, Caribou, with the Rev. Raymond Morency, celebrant. Friends may call 10 a.m. until the time of service at the church. Interment will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may contribute to the Alzheimer’s Association Maine Chapter, 383 U.S. Route One, Suite 2C, Scarborough, ME 04074.
