Obituary of Lea Marie Ouellette
Lea (Violette) Ouellette was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world unexpectedly on January 4th, 2024, at the age of 73. Even though a failing heart took her from this world, her big heart leaves a beacon of light for all.
Lea was born on April 9th, 1950, in Van Buren, Maine, to Gabriel and Gerry Violette. She now joins her brother Micheal who passed away this fall. Lea resided in Hampden, ME, with her loving husband Donald who was her partner, soulmate, and best friend of 53 years. She was the proud mother of two beautiful daughters Naomi Lagasse, Melissa and her husband Daniel Boyd. Her selflessness, perseverance, and love remains as the foundation of her family and reflects through her grandchildren Samantha and husband Erick, Logan, Sarah, Ryan, and Izabella. Lea also shared much love for all of her in-laws, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
The simplest pleasures in life brought her pure joy. Lea loved spending time with her family and friends whether it was going on family vacations, taking girl trips, or playing cards. She loved to make scrapbooks that captured beautiful memories throughout the years. She also loved making puzzles, crafting, and spending lots of money at Micheals and Hobby Lobby! She always looked forward to daily facetime calls from her grandchildren, they held such a special place in her heart. In the evenings you would find Lea relaxing in her recliner with a chilled Pepsi, Lays potato chips, her dog Gabe in her lap, and her husband Donald alongside her.
Lea was one of the strongest, most humble, and caring humans in this world. She brought much light and laughter through her silly and sassy jokes. Lea could put a smile on anyone's face. She truly touched the lives of everyone around her. She showed us what love, loyalty, and the true meaning of family is. Lea will be deeply missed and remains forever in our hearts.
A celebration of life will be held for Lea in the early summer of 2024.
