Constance (Connie) V. Sirois, 87, died July 14th, 2016, surrounded by her family. She was born December 21, 1928, the daughter of Francis and Louise (Desjardin) Thibodeau.
Connie was a lifelong resident of Old Town and a graduate of John Bapst Memorial H.S., class of 1947. She married Edmund Sirois in 1952 and celebrated 57 years together until his passing in 2009. Connie was a homemaker, excellent seamstress, and for many years was employed by Dr. Walter Hall, Old Town Health Center, and St. Joseph's Hospital. She was a superb cook and baker, whose creations were the highlight of all of our lives. Connie was a past president of Old Town Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary. Most of all, she was a supportive Wife, Mom, Mémère, and "Old Mimi" to many, and enjoyed life to the fullest to the very end, in which she found peace with her Lord and faith.
The family would like to thank the Staff of the Helen Hunt Health Center, "PCHC", Stillwater Health Care, and Hospice of Eastern Maine for their exceptional care of our mother.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her brothers, John and Richard Thibodeau and a sister M. Annette Thibodeau.

She was loved by her nine grandchildren, Nicholas and his wife Mariah, Cherilyn, Brian and his wife Johannah, Kevin and his wife Kristy, Shane and his wife Ronda, Michael, Christine, and Jacqueline, and Jeffrey Woodard.
