Helen Constance (Neville) Vautour, passed away unexpectedly on August 1, 2017 at Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford.
Connie was the daughter of the late John Dunphy Neville and Helen (Halloran) Neville of Waltham, Massachusetts. She was raised in Waltham with her three sisters: the late Margaret Landry of Queens, NY; the late Jane Neville of Marlboro, MA; Geri Gracey of Marlboro, MA and a brother, Tom Neville of Cambridge, MA.
Connie graduated from Regis College and subsequently worked as a special education teacher in the Waltham school system and as an Administrative Assistant in several businesses. A multi-talented woman, she found joy in creating meaningful artistic treasures for family and friends. Her passion was teaching swimming at the Waltham Boys Club where she directed the instructional swim programs for many years.
In 1986, Connie semi-retired to Bethel, Maine where she and her husband established a Bed and Breakfast and became very active in the community. Their pursuits included artistic craft projects, semiprofessional singing and hosting friends and family at their home. The couple relocated to Waterboro, Maine in 2000.
Connie is survived by her husband of sixty years, Donald J. Vautour, her sons: Richard and his wife Claudia of Millis, MA; Douglas and his wife Pamela of Norwood, MA; and Thomas of Newfield, ME. Her cherished grandchildren are Dillion Anthony Vautour, Tessa Oliver and Robin Oliver.
