Carlsbad, CA. formerly of Waterville, ME At 9:40 p.m. on Oct. 4, 2012 the Lord came for our beloved mother Estelle Maillet. Estelle was born Dec. 1, 1918 the daughter of Archie and Marie Reny Champine. She grew up in Fairfield, Maine and graduated from Lawrence High School. In her adult life, Estelle worked at various businesses in the bookkeeping departments. She worked for several years at Dunham's of Maine and another several years at Thompson's Volkswagon in Waterville. In 2002, after her husband's death, Estelle moved to Carlsbad, CA and made her home with her daughter Cindy. In Carlsbad, Estelle loved playing Bridge and was a member of several Bridge groups. She was an avid reader, having her name on the library's reservations list as soon as a new novel by any of her favorite authors came out. Estelle also loved to travel and before her husband's death, they traveled to many countries. Estelle was a deeply spiritual person. She loved her Lord Jesus with all her heart and as death approached, she spoke of how eager she was to go to Him, and also to be reunited with her loved ones who had gone before her. Knowing her eagerness and devotion was a great comfort to her family who will greatly miss her. Estelle was predeceased by her parents; her husband Yvon; her brother Carl Champine; and her sister Jeannette Duguay. She is survived by two daughters, Paula Maillet of Waterville, ME. and Cynthia Jacques of Carlsbad, CA.; a son, Michael Maillet and his wife Julie of Secaucus, N.J.; eight grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Anita Mathieu of Waterville and Bernadette Massey of Winslow; and by many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, Estelle requested memorial contributions be made to Seasons Hospice Foundation, 6400 Shafer Court Suite 700q, Rosemont, IL 60018. Estelle and her family appreciated so very much the devoted care Hospice volunteers gave her right up to the hour she left them.
