Rose Anna Corbin Michaud 99, completed her life journey on Memory Lane at Mount St. Joseph Nursing Home on August 7, 2014 due to complications associated with Vascular Alzheimer's disease. She returned home in the arms of her Blessed Mother to be with our Heavenly Father and loved one's who have passed before her. The grace, dignity and courage which she lived her life was the way she passed from it. She was an inspiration to all who knew her and the ability to win over their hearts while living through a horrific illness. Her smile and laughter could make your heart sing. Born December 6, 1914 in Fort Kent, Maine, she was the fifth of seven children born to Rene Corbin and Evelyn Dumont Corbin. She attended school in Keegan, Maine. The family moved to Waterville, Maine when she was eighteen. She married Randolph Michaud on Easter Sunday April 21, 1946 and together they had four children. She worked at Bridgeport, Ct. Brass Company, Lockwood Mills, The Diamond International Company, Lipman Hatcheries and supervised South Grammar Playground. She was an attentive and supportive mother that taught us through her quiet example the importance of education, hard work striving to achieve goals, accepting diversity in others, devotion to family and faith in God. She was predeceased by her parents, husband Randolph, Infant brother Fred; her sister Leanna Sister M. DesAnges and her sister Una Bulger. She is survived by her four children: Sandra Locklin, Richard, Anne and Jeffrey Michaud; two extended family members: Gerard Brouillard and Jennifer Ross.; two granddaughters: Sarah and husband Jeffrey Chadborne; Samantha Michaud and companion Adam Simpson; three great-grandsons: Jeffrey and Ryan Chadborne and Tylor Simpson. She is also survived by three sisters: Arlene Fischer, Eva Babicz and Cecile Ellis; a sister-in-law: Theresa Sirois, along with many nieces and nephews. There are individuals who require special recognition and thanks for their assistance in her care: nieces, Arlene Michaud and Lila Tardie, her guardian angel Eva Thurlow, Donna Robbins and Mount St. Joseph staff. Mom had a very special place in her heart for her niece, Judy Ellis. An Alzheimer's Prayer Author Unknown Please grant my visitors tolerance of my confusion, forgiveness for my irrationality, and strength to walk with me into the mist of memory my world has become. Please help them take my hand and stay awhile even though I seem unaware of their presence. Help them to know how their strength and loving care will drift softly into the days to come, just when I need it most. Let them know that, when I don't recognize them, I will ask them to keep their hearts free of sorrow for me. For my sorrow, when it comes, only lasts for a moment and then it is gone. And finally, please let them know how very much their visits mean. How, even through this relentless mystery, I can feel their love. Visiting hours will be held Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Gallant Funeral Home 10 Elm Street Waterville, Maine. A mass of Christian Burial will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Notre Dame Church 116 Silver Street Waterville, Maine. Committal prayers and burial will follow in St. Francis Catholic Cemetery Grove Street Waterville, Maine.
