BANGOR – Louise May Antone, 74, passed away June 5, 2013, after a long courageous battle with multiple sclerosis, at her home, surrounded by five generations of her loving family. She was born June 19, 1938, in Lubec.
Louise had a great wit and sense of humor. Her mission and passion in life was to be the best wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother to her dear family. Louise was the matriarch of the family and they all loved and respected her. There are many wonderful memories at camp on Indian Lake, Whiting, where it gave her a sense of peace. She was known as “Weeze May” to many, and to many she was like a second mother. Louise was also known to support many sporting events of her family for encouragement.
