Obituary

VEAZIE - Willena “Willie” Monroe died June 4, 2020, after a long illness. Willie was born on January 26, 1929 and was the daughter of Wilfred and Florence (Poulin) Morissette. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 50 years George R. Monroe in 2000, a brother Bill Morissette, and a nephew James Morissette.

Wille was educated in Waterville schools (St. Francis De Sales and Mt. Merici Academy). She was a parishioner of St. John’s Catholic church for 37 years and St. Mary’s serving as both a Eucharistic Minister and Lecter. She opened the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen at St. John’s where it operated for seven years before moving to the Salvation Army. Willie considered her time with the soup kitchen as a labor of love. She worked briefly as a telephone switchboard operator during her early years of marriage and enjoyed several years selling Avon products to her local clients.

Willie is survived by her son Mike Monroe and wife Cheryl of Veazie, son Stephen Monroe and wife Julie of Orono, daughter Marie Monroe- Gentry and husband Darrell of Veazie, son Danny Monroe, and wife Wanda of Holden, sister Marie Pulsifer and husband Bill of Belgrade Lakes, and brother James Morissette and wife Nancy of Waterville.

Wille was blessed with 9 Grand Children; Melissa (Monroe) Stone and husband Tom, Lyndsey (Monroe) Marston and husband Curtis, Emily Monroe and husband Pete Chamberlain, Annie Monroe, Kara (Monroe) Gillis and husband Steve, Josh Monroe and wife Janell, Cameron Monroe, Ava Monroe, and Janell Monroe. Willie was delighted by her 4 Great Grand Children, Noah and Gabriel Stone, and Brooklyn and Reese Gillis.

Willie was fortunate to enjoy many nieces and nephews and several lifelong, and longtime friends. She enjoyed her book group discussions and special regular visits from dear friend Arlene Caron. She loved to watch the birds outside her picture window, the deer that showed up in her back yard, and the flowers blooming in her rock garden.

Services will be private for the family. Gifts in Willie’s memory may be made to the Good Shepherd Food Bank, P.O. Box 1807, Auburn, ME 04211 (https://www.gsfb.org), or to The Salvation Army of Bangor, 65 South Park Street, Bangor, ME 04401 (https://give.salvationarmy.org), to help continue her legacy of feeding the hungry.

Mike, Steve, Marie and Darrell, and Danny,
Our sincere condolances to you kids.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Monroe family.
Willie and George were the best, kindest, helpful and caring neighbors
one could ever have.
They were the only neighbors we have ever had on the north side.
Willie always called me "Deah".
Willie was wonderful mother, wife, grandmother and friend.
We sure will miss you Willie. We loved you dearly.
God bless you and rest in peace
Dick and Sandy Averill
