In memory of
Dolores "Dee" (Bourgoin) Gould
Dolores "Dee" (Bourgoin) Gould 1941- 2016 WINSLOW - It was a beautiful autumn day with family by my side; I took my final journey. Even though Parkinson's had taken over my body for the last 16 years, I managed to sustain my quick wit, and never-ending sense of humor, keeping those who cared for me on their toes and a big smile on their face. My heart was full to the end by all the love and care I received, especially from my son Mark and niece Lori, who I always introduced as the daughter I never had. As many of you know, cooking was my passion and I was blessed to do what I love, not only for the Winslow school system for 35-plus years, but for friends and family. So please remember me coming to your door with a pie and cookies in hand, and a big smile on my face. And when the flowers bloom in the spring, know that I have begun a new life in the garden with the Angels. Born to a family of 11 children in Van Buren to Edmund and Albertine Bourgoin; maybe that is why I loved to cook. I also enjoyed playing cribbage with my family, and going to the casinos. I was a member of the Winslow VFW, and loved to play beano. I was predeceased by my parents; husband Burt Gould; brother Ed Bourgoin; sisters Charlene Poulin, and Jackie and her husband Jim Tardiff; sister-in-law Nancy Bourgoin; nephew Michael Bourgoin. I am survived by my sons: Mark Gould of Winslow, and Jeff and Patty Gould; grandson Benjamin and wife Crystal Gould; granddaughter Natasha Gould; five great-grandchildren, all from Omaha Neb.; my sister Pat Gurney and her husband Ed of Winslow; brothers Gene Bourgoin of Clinton, Ray Bourgoin and wife Carlene, Joe "Cowboy" Bourgoin and wife Carol of Waterville, Ronald Bourgoin and wife Rachel of Winslow, David Bourgoin and wife Denise, and Donald Bourgoin and wife Libby of Clinton; brother-in-law Fran Poulin of Waterville; a very special niece, Lori Hawk and her husband Al of China; sisters-in-law Ana Gould of Texas, and Ida Gould, Mary Vigue and Ellie Gould, all of Waterville; and many nieces and nephews who all hold a special place in my heart. The family would like to thank the staff of Glenridge long-term nursing facility in Augusta for the wonderful care. Dee received lots of TLC from all of you! Louise, thank you for dancing with Dee every night before bed; she loved it. Activities Karen, Brandi and staff, thank you for playing cards, bowling, and letting her be the sorter of STUFF, and to TJ and the dining staff for always making her meals perfect, with a diet Coke and dessert (which she always ate first). A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, at 11 a.m. at Notre Dame Catholic Church, 112 Silver St., Waterville. Burial will be at a later date at the Maine Veterans' Memorial Cemetery in Augusta.
