Elizabeth A. Violette
CARIBOU, Maine – Elizabeth A. Violette, 76, wife of the late Franklin Violette, died August 1, 2018, at Caribou. She was born in Woodstock, N.B., Canada, September 9, 1941, the daughter of the late Bernard and Ida (Orser) Lavoie.
Mrs. Violette was a cook at Teague Park School in Caribou for several years. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who loved to cook and quilt.
She loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing; and was most proud of the fact that she received her moose permit in 1982 and successfully shot a 1,490 pound bull moose in Blackstone Siding, that field-dressed at 1,145 pounds; a state record at that time.
She is survived by her three children, Brian, Brent, and Lori Violette, all of Caribou, and two grandchildren, Nick and Sam Violette. Mrs. Violette was predeceased by her husband in 1995; three brothers, Doug, Jack, and Wayne; and a grandson, Chad Violette.
Graveside services will be held 3 p.m. Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at the Evergreen Cemetery, Caribou. Arrangements by Mockler Funeral Home.
