LEWISTON - Florence Ann Houle, 79, went home to be with the Lord July 31, 2016, following a short illness. She was born June 19, 1937, in Gardiner. She was the wife of Gerry Houle, whom she loved dearly.
Florence was well known in the community as the "Bike Lady". She loved spending all of her time attending church, going to school, and being with family and friends. She was also a hard worker for many years at Whiting's Farm in Auburn. She was a soldier in the Salvation Army in Lewiston. In 2015, Florence reached her goal and completed her adult education program. Because she enjoyed school so much, she was disappointed when she could no longer attend school. Receiving her certificate was a highlight of her life.
Florence is survived by her adopted family, the Bergeron's of Lewiston. They took Florence in many years ago, and would like to thank those who loved and looked after her: the Salvation Army Church, Christ Temple Church, the Whiting family, the Lewiston Police Department, Simone's Hot Dogs, Paul's Clothing, The Hope Haven, Lewiston Adult Education, and many other friends. Florence will be missed by many.
She was predeceased by her husband, Gerry on December 27, 2013.
Funeral services will be held at noon Monday, August 15th, at the Christ Temple Church, 2488 Turner Street, Auburn, with Pastor Albert Jackson officiating. Friends may call at the church from 11 A.M. until the time of service. Burial will be in the Dixmont Corner Cemetery, Dixmont.
