Louise D. Vienneau Shelley Mason passed away peacefully Saturday, September 10, 2016, at C.A. Dean Hospital, after several years of enduring a terminal illness. She was born to Edmund and Adrienne Vienneau on July 28, 1940, in Holeb, the third oldest of their 4 children.
As the family of a railroad section foreman, her family moved from Holeb to Brownville. Louise attended the Sacred Heart Academy Convent in Jackman, where she continued to live as a wife and mother raising her three children: Linda, Dennis and Glenn. Louise was married to her first husband, William E. Shelley, in 1963. She remarried to Stanley E. Mason Jr. in 2000, residing in Tomhegan Township on the shore of Moosehead Lake. Louise's life revolved around her husband, her children, her grandchildren and her family. She always made everyone feel welcome. Louise loved lots of things like baking sweets for the family, lobster rolls, lemon meringue pie, yellow roses and blue grass music. A selfless woman who had a good word and a smile on her face, she put everyone's needs before her own. She was a devoted Christian at St. Anthony's/St. Faustina Church and she was a loving friend to many.
