Jeanette Albert (1937—2018)
FORT KENT, Maine — Jeanette Albert, 80, passed away on January 6, 2018, at Forest Hill Manor Nursing Home in Fort Kent, Maine, after an extended illness. She was born on December 20, 1937, in Guerette, Maine, the daughter of Alexander and Martha (Chaloux) Guerette. After losing her mother at a very young age, she was raised mainly by her father (and older siblings) from whom she gained her love of GOD, country, and nature.
She truly enjoyed fishing, hunting, and canoeing, and everything the outdoors had to offer. Gifted with a ‘green thumb’, many local folks would come from miles around to buy fresh vegetables out of the garden. Jeanette loved taking family trips to the beach and was an avid reader too.
Jeanette worked for years at Bev’s Country Kitchen restaurant in Sinclair, Maine. After passing the Civil Service Exam, she was hired by the United States Post Office as a clerk for the Sinclair Post Office and eventually became Postmaster, retiring after 26 years of exemplary service.
She belonged to St. Euthrope Parish in Guerette, Maine, and St. Joseph’s Parish in Sinclair, Maine, and she was also a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She was an extremely generous, kind, and loving woman, a tireless worker, and admired and well-respected by all who knew her.
Jeanette is survived by her children, Charlene Farnham of Windham, Maine; Paul Albert of Hughesville, Maryland; Lise Albert of Cross Lake, Maine; Louise Albert of Presque Isle, Maine; her grandchildren, Sean Kilpatrick of Old Town, Maine; Lucas McGill of Orono, Maine; Alexis (Albert) White of Roanoke, Virginia; Erika Albert of Hughesville, Maryland; her sister, Lucille Ouellette of Apopka, Florida; her brother, John Guerette of Orlando, Florida; and many beloved nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, her brothers, Leon and Frank Guerette, and her son, Alexander Kit Guerette.
A memorial service and interment was planned for Friday, June 1, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at the St. Joseph Catholic Church. Visitation was held on Friday, June 1, 2018, at 8:30 a.m. until time of departure for Services. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made in her name to the American Diabetes Association.
