Waterville - Pauline S. Jandreau, age 87, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 5, 2018 at Lakewood Continuing Care Center in Waterville, Maine. She was born in Van Buren, Maine on March 27, 1931 to Guy and Yvonne Ouellette. Growing up on the Cyr Plantation, she had a passion for being with family, cooking, and listening to country music.

Pauline and her husband purchased a lake house on Snow Pond in 1983, which instantly became the place where she could indulge in her favorite activities: being with family, playing bluegrass music, and playing cards on the deck overlooking the lake. On the lake in her rocking chair, you could hear her singing along to the lyrics of the music that would bring her mind back to the potato fields with her parents and siblings. As a member of Sacred Heart Church on Pleasant Street and Notre Dame Church on Silver Street in Waterville, she placed her faith in God and led her children and grandchildren to a place of worship where they would be confirmed as youths and married as adults. Pauline played a large role in her family that extended past raising her own eight children. Known by the family as "Memere" she helped raise many of her grandchildren who she loved dearly.
