Winslow-Sylvia L. Poulliot, 81, of Winslow passed away Sunday evening, July 18, 2021 at home with her family by her side, after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's. She was born February 22, 1940 in Waterville, the youngest child of Hector and Rose (Breton) Lefebvre.\r\nSylvia was educated in Waterville and Winslow schools, graduating from Winslow High School, class of 1958. She made many lifelong friends in high school and also met the love of her life, Milton Poulliot.\r\nSylvia worked at many community-oriented companies throughout her career, including Winslow Community Federal Credit Union, Winslow Insurance, and Maine Savings credit union in Vassalboro. She especially enjoyed helping people while she was a loan officer. Along with her husband, she owned and operated the former Winslow Maytag Highlander Laundromat and she did the bookkeeping for Milton's construction business. She was involved with the Winslow Family Fourth of July event, organizing the legendary street dance in the first years of the celebration. She was also a Notary Public and performed a few marriages.\r\nShe enjoyed supporting her children and then her grandchildren at their various activities. She loved to travel, which included too many camping trips to mention, cruises, bus trips, visits to Florida, a cross country trip to various national parks, and a trip to Italy to see her exchange student "son" ordained a Greek Orthodox priest. She loved visiting her relatives and having company over, Christmas parties with her friends, the annual Poulliot summer lobster cookout and the Christmas party in December, and Monday lunches with the girls. If Sylvia was there, a good time was bound to be had by all.\r\nSylvia was predeceased by her parents Hector and Rose; by her father- and mother-in law Frederic and Eleanor Poulliot; by sister-in-law Judith Poulliot, brother-in-law Laurier Bouchard, and brother-in-law Frank Wilson. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Milton (Mickey) of Winslow. She is also survived by daughter Shelly Selwood and her husband Joel of Winslow and their children David of New York City and Carrie of Winslow; and survived by son Brian Poulliot and his wife Kristy and their children, Natalie and Ashley, of Grafton, Massachusetts. She is also survived by her "adopted son", Archimandrite Igumen Gabriele Invernizzi of Revello, Italy; who joined the family as an exchange student in 1985-1986. She is also survived by her brother Joseph (Reggie) Lefebvre and his wife Sheila of Benton, and by her sister Rose Marie Wilson of Jacksonville, NC; also by her brother-in-law Norbert Poulliot of Fairfield; sister-in-law Sherril Bouchard, and brother- and sister-in-law Ronald and Sandra Poulliot, all of Winslow, as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, and more relatives in the extended Breton-Lefebvre-Poulliot families.\r\nThe family extends a gracious thank you to all the caregivers who attended to Sylvia with such love.
