A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, November 20. 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at the Goodwin Mills Cemetery.
Louise M. Williams, 74, beloved sister and aunt, died in peace on November 5, 2020 at Seal Rock in Saco.
Louise was born in Biddeford on July 19, 1946, the daughter of Leon A. and Lucianna P. (Fournier) Levesque. She attended Notre’ Dame elementary school and graduated from Thornton Academy.
Louise married her first husband Rosaire Bisson and they moved to Holyoke, Mass. It was during this time that Rosaire had sustained a traumatic work-related injury and they moved back to Maine to be closer to their families. Following the death of her husband Rosaire, Louise went to work for 10 years at Fairchild Semiconductor in So. Portland and then she became a weaver at Jagger Mills and retired from the Biddeford Textile Mill. Louise remarried Harold “Baby” Williams and they made their home in Waterboro before his passing in 2006.
Louise “Weezie” as most of her family and friends called her, was spicy and fun to be around! (With a little bit of stubbornness thrown in there for good measure) She possessed a BIG HEART for those who were needing help and would often go without so she could help others with food or buying heating oil. She was a hard worker who loved people and was known to be a “mother hen” – she brought people under her wings and sheltered them from the challenges of daily life.
Louise loved her babies. . . her four-legged toy poodles through the years and her dear sweet Abby, a Yorkie mix that she adored. She can rest easy knowing that Abby is well taking care of and loved by her niece Nancy. Louise was an avid crafter who enjoyed crocheting, knitting, sewing and in her younger years, learning how to can vegetables with her sister Liz.
When you visited Louise in her home, the radio would be playing classic country-n-western music with the likes of Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, and Johnny Cash. She had a fondness for old western movies, and she adored and pined over Chuck Norris the star of Texas Walker Ranger! It was not unusual for Louise to make homemade Christmas presents for her family and friends. Christmas was her favorite holiday.
Louise has begun a new journey of reuniting with her loved ones and we hope she is taking care of all the puppies that need extra TLC. Louise will be dearly missed, and all our good memories will sustain us, and she will never be forgotten.
Louise is lovingly survived by her sister Elizabeth Raymond and husband Jerry of Dayton; her niece Nancy Raymond with whom she shared a home with; her three nephews Steven Raymond of Dayton and his daughter Mellanie Fuller and husband Kris and their children Sierra and Garrett of Parsonsfield; Danny Raymond and wife Carrie and their children Lucy and Eli of Wyoming; Gary Raymond and wife Amanda and their children Olivia and Colvin of Virginia; her brother Lucien Levesque (who passed) and his wife Racheal of Dayton and their children Ernest Levesque (who passed) and wife Billy Jo and their children Lauren and Michael; Cheryl Jackson of Summerville, NH and her children Samantha of Fall River, Mass and Katie of Sanford; and grandson Dawson Shawn Levesque of Biddeford; her step brother Donald Levesque (who passed) and wife Shirley of Sanford; and their children Leona Gerry and partner Jo of Sanford; Bobbie Ann (who passed) and DJ Levesque.
