Phyllis Kneeland Clement
Sep 24, 1958 - Jan 15, 2017
- Phyllis Kneeland Clement, 58, died on January 15, 2017, after a long battle with bladder cancer. She was born on September 24, 1958 in Bangor, daughter of Philip and Lois (Rockwell) Kneeland.
She is predeceased by a brother, Dennis, and mother, Lois.
She is survived by her husband, James Clement; two sons, Christopher M. Clement, his wife Kalli and four children, Seth, Logan, Natalie and Brooklyn, and Frederick W. Clement and his daughter, Alexis.
She leaves behind her sister, Debra A. (Kneeland) Fowler with her husband, Barry and their children, Nikki and Cory, and her brother, Anthony C. Kneeland and his companion Jeff.
Also special sisters-in-law, Paula (Clement) Smith and Vickie (Taggett) Clement, along with brothers-in-law, George Clement, Theron Clement, Kim Clement, and Barry Smith.
She worked for 26 years as a licensed Veterinary Technician, first for 10 years at Corinth Veterinary Clinic in Corinth, Maine and then for 16 years at Aroostook Veterinary Services in Houlton, Maine.
She really enjoyed spending time with Jimmy over the years fixing up their homes, in previous years, at their Red Deer Farm in Linneus and most recently in Charleston. It gave her a real sense of peace and solitude when working on landscaping around the house and pond. She took great pride in teaching herself how to build cabinets by hand for their home.
Mostly she gives credit to her Lord and Savior for the peace she has had over the years as he has guided her walk in her everyday life.

The funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 19, 2017, at the Charleston Pentecostal Church, 185 Main Road, Charleston, with the Rev. Matt Ward officiating.
