Gilmay (Rossignol) Labrie

FRENCHVILLE, Maine — Gilmay (Rossignol) Labrie passed away on Monday, November 19, 2018, at the age of 91. She was a gem of a mother and an outstanding grandmother. Her energy and humor will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Gilmay was born on May 18, 1927, in Frenchville, the eldest daughter of Fred and Marie (Caron) Rossignol. She was a life-long resident of the St. John Valley and over the years, worked for several businesses in the area.

After she retired, she moved to La Maison Acadian and lived there for over 25 years. This was her special home, a home she dearly loved. She was an avid reader with a deep passion for politics and she strived to keep up to date with all the happenings in the world. 

Gilmay is survived by her two daughters, Dora Labrie and Louise Jalbert; her grandchildren, Ben Jalbert, Dustin Jalbert and Nicole Johnson; her sisters, Theresa Levesque and Corine LaJoie; and many nieces and nephews.
