OKLAHOMA CITY — Lucille Thibodeau, 103, former longtime resident of Topsham, died Jan. 5 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Thibodeau was born Dec. 31, 1912, in Brunswick, and was happily married to Henry Thibodeau from 1948 until his death in 1994.
Thibodeau lived in Topsham until she moved to Choctaw, Oklahoma, to live with her daughter. Until recently she was in relatively good health, spending her final years at Wolfe Living Center.
The Maine climate suited Thibodeau, who often said she missed Maine, where she was a member of the Daughters of Isabella at Saint John’s Catholic Church in Brunswick.
When she lived in Maine, “Mrs. T,” as she was known, loved to sit on her front porch to visit and reminisce with neighbors and family. Her Sunday dinners with friends at Captain Mike’s or Taste of Maine was always a big topic of discussion, along with the day’s weather.
Thibodeau was predeceased by her husband, Henry; a sister, Rita Bouchard and two brothers, Joseph and Armand Bouchard.
Surviving family members include two daughters, Rachel Bozeman, of Aledo, Texas, and Joan Carter of Choctaw, Oklahoma, a granddaughter, Elizabeth Carter; a grandson, Jonathan Carter; and great-grandchildren, Austin Kidd, Thomas Kidd, William Scott, Caleb Carter and Kierstan Carter.
The family would like to express their appreciation to the Wolfe Living Center staff and Valir Hospice.
Funeral services were held Jan. 9 at Sunny Lane Funeral Home in Del City, Oklahoma. Interment will be at St. John Cemetery in Brunswick. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 12, at All Saints Parish, St. John the Baptist Church in Brunswick.
