Lucille Laprise Nobert, 81, of Sanford, passed peacefully August 30, 2021 just days before what would have been her 60th wedding anniversary to her lifelong love, Ronald Nobert. Her family finds solace in knowing she is at peace and reunited with Ron once more.
Lucille was the daughter of Edgar and Monique Laprise, born June 10, 1940. She lived in Sanford her entire
life, graduating from Saint Ignatius High School's class of 1958 and then cosmetology school. Lucille married
her high school sweetheart on September 4, 1961 and together they raised three children - Lory, Ken and
Kelly. Her family was her life. Over the years Lucille ran her hair salon from her home and then took various
other office positions that allowed her to be available to support her children and later her grandchildren in all
Lucille, with Ron, attended all the games, recitals and school events in which her family participated. She was
a proud Mom and Memere who was always there to watch and cheer them on. Lucille looked forward to all
holidays, especially Christmas. She enjoyed making ceramic decorations and had amassed pieces she
lovingly put on display for each major holiday. She also enjoyed making and gifting pieces for her family.
Lucille loved family gatherings so much she baked everyone's favorite desserts - even if it meant staying up all
night to prepare at least half a dozen choices on the table!
Another of Lucille's gifts to her children and grandchildren was sharing her love of music. She enjoyed playing
piano to them, introducing them to French songs, holiday songs and silly ones that she loved.
Sadly, Lucille suffered from Alzheimer's in her last years. She slowly lost her ability to communicate with
words, but her smile and her firm grip let those who loved her believe she still felt their love and presence.
Occasionally "the look" would make them laugh out loud with childhood memories!
Lucille was a communicant of St. Therese of Lisieux Parish. She held a strong faith and belief that she would
one day be reunited with those who passed before her - her parents, her brother, Roger J. Laprise, in-laws,
Wilfred and Ruth Nobert, brothers-in-law William and Paul Nobert.
She is survived by her daughter Lory Chase, son Kenneth Nobert and his wife Tammy, daughter Kelly
LaFountain and her husband Mark, grandchildren Amanda Chase Melvin, Jason Chase, Caitlin LaFountain
and Alex LaFountain. She is also survived by two sisters-in-law, Cynthia Laprise and Jean Nobert, as well as
several nieces and nephews.
