BRUNSWICK — Irene C. Labrecque, 80, passed away Oct. 26 at Midcoast Hospital in Brunswick.
Born in Topsham on Sept. 21, 1931, she was the daughter of Frank and Marie Louice Fortin Beaudoin. She graduated from St. John’s School and attended high school in South Berwick.
On Sept., 24, 1959, she married Clement Labrecque who passed away in January, 1994.
When she was a young girl, Labrecque worked at Woolworth’s and then devoted her life to raising her family.

Her family was her career, teaching her children how to love the Lord, and each other, as much as she did.

She is survived by her daughters Monique Story and her husband Tom of Brunswick and Theresa Labrecque of Brunswick; son Raymond Labrecque of Richmond; sister Pauline Avery of Colchester, Conn.; two grandsons, James Leavitt and his wife Kathleen of Portland and Andrew Leavitt of Brunswick; great-granddaughters Audry and Ida Leavitt of Portland; and her extended family of Guardian Angels at Winship Green in Bath.
