M. Elizabeth (Betty) Albair

January 12, 1925 — March 31, 2023

M. Elizabeth (Betty) Pelletier Albair
1-12-1925  --  3-31-2023

It’s not to ask “how did she die” but rather, “how did she live?”  She truly walked on fields of gold…
From the beginning of her precious, charmed life living in Fort Kent to her many travels to Europe, Florida and back to Caribou, she spread her love not only to her family of 9 children, 17 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren but also to her children’s friends who also called her “Mom”.

Mom was educated at St. Joseph’s Academy in Portland, Simmons College in Boston and UMO where she met her now deceased husband, Harold.

She was a Girl Scout Leader and also served on the Cooperative Extension, thus passing on her crafty skills of knitting and sewing to neighboring girls.  She was also a Lioness Club Member through which she made some lifelong friendships.

Mom was an avid reader and also loved foraging for raspberries at Cross Lake where she summered most of her life beginning at age 5.  It is also at Cross Lake where she passed down summering with her children and Harold.

Mom was the joy of her parents, Michel and Hedwidge, and so were they to her. She expressed at the age of 98 hoping they would be the angels that would come for her when she was ready for her next journey.

Words cannot even express the gratitude we have for the love and care Mom received at the Caribou Nursing Home.  Many thanks to them for their love to her and our family.

And last but not least, Mom’s roommate and friend at Caribou Nursing Home for over 3 years is living proof that “Laughter IS the BEST Medicine”.

Friends are invited to visit with the family on Thursday, June 29, 2023 at the Mockler Funeral Home, 24 Reservoir Street, from 4PM until 6PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, June 30, 2023 at 10AM at the Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Interment will be in the New Holy Rosary Catholic Cemetery.
