CORINTH - Vernice Lottie (Clement) Stubbs, 91, passed away February 25, 2015, surrounded by her family. She was born June 6, 1923, in Norridgewock, to Vernon and Madelyn Clement.
Vernice grew up in Bangor, attended Bangor High School, then worked for a time at Viner Shoe. In 1942, she married Francis R. Stubbs, and raised their three sons in Kenduskeag, where she was the town clerk for many years, then moved to Corinth. A spitfire with a knack for storytelling, Vernice was devoted to helping her son Dennis gain independence after being paralyzed by polio at age 8.
Vernice regularly imparted her wisdom on her children and grandchildren, and had an unwavering love for yard sales, soap operas, and stories of extraterrestrial encounters. She will be warmly remembered for her adventurous imagination.
Vernice is survived by her sons, James and wife Eileen of Brewer, and Tom and wife Audrey of Levant; grandchildren James and wife Amy, Andrew, Jennifer, Carrie Ann, Ryan, Amy, and Sherry; and great-granddaughter Amaya. She is also survived by her two sisters, Kay and her husband Earl Munson of Florida, and Audrey and Herbert Bean of Bangor; her brothers, Eugene Clement of Glenburn, and Avon and his wife Sharon of New York; and many nieces and nephews, three of whom she was very close with, Dierdre, Patty, and Brenda. She was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Francis, and her son Dennis, as well as her siblings Dwain, Butch, and Daphne.
There will be a memorial service on March 6, 2015, at 2:00 pm, at the Pine Grove Remembrance Center, 1347 Outer Hammond St. in Bangor.
