WINTHROP - Jeanne A. Kirkpatrick (Macomber / Ladd) 73, passed on Monday March 15th peacefully at her home in Winthrop after a long illness. She was born on February 27, 1948 to Robert I. Macomber and Norma L. (Williams) in Augusta Maine. She was the second of the four daughters that they had.\r\n\r\nJeanne was a 1966 Graduate of Winthrop High school. She went on to earn her nursing degree and worked at A.M.H.I. for several years until she then went on to get her Beautician License at Central Beauty School in Augusta. There she worked for many years at Chernowsky's Hair Salon at their Augusta department store, as well as various hair salons in Winthrop and Augusta areas.\r\n\r\nJeanne grew up and lived most her life in Maine. She moved to Massachusetts in 1975, where she worked in the hair salon industry until becoming employed at the USVA in Brockton, MA.\r\n\r\nThere in Brockton she met her future husband William M Kirkpatrick. They moved to Maine in 1982, were married in 1983 until his unexpected passing in 1984.\r\n\r\nOver the years she worked various careers as a hairdresser, a caterer, a cook and various medical field jobs.\r\n\r\nShe traveled many miles going to hotels, casinos, beaches, yard sales, and thrift stores with her Mother and Sister Gloria. Those three now are together again and who knows what travels or troubles they are up to.....Only God Knows. For that I apologize to Him most sincerely.\r\n\r\nShe was predeceased by her husband Michael in 1984, her Father in 1988, her mother in 2018, her sister Gloria Pottle in 2019, and her longtime Life Partner Clarence Croxford in 2015.\r\n\r\nShe is survived by her only child, Daughter Lorri Ladd-Tlumac of Winslow. Grandchildren Tabitha N Tlumac of Winthrop, Samantha L Tlumac of Readfield, Robert W. Horstman and his husband Jarrett of Winthrop. Also her long awaited Great-Gransdon's Bryce W. Tlumac and Jorden J. Tlumac who were born in July of 2020 (mom Samantha) of Readfield.\r\n\r\nShe is also survived by her sisters Gail Macomber of Augusta, Irene Delisle, and her husband Mike of Fayette. Many nieces, nephews, cousins, as well as many friends she has met on her journey in this world that she will truly miss.\r\n\r\nA heartfelt thank you to Dr. Kumar and all the staff, nurses at the Harold Alfond Cancer center as well as Dr Dohner. As well as a most gracious thank you to the ladies, staff, and nurses of Maine General Hospice and Homecare who assisted all of us in doing everything we could to keep her safe, comfortable in her home.\r\n\r\nWords will never be enough to show my gratitude to Gallant Funeral Home in Waterville, to Dana and Craig McInnis and staff for helping me and our family through this most unusual situation that we became a part of, to get her respectfully and safely in your care and hopefully now she is at restful peace.\r\n\r\nThere will be no visiting hours or service at this time. Per her final wishes, there will be a Celebration of Life. The time and date will be determined at a later time this summer, where her final requests will be honored.\r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, donations she would ask that you take that money, go to the Casino, buy a lottery or scratch off ticket. She would say: You Can't Take It With You, enjoy it now before it's too late!
