Marylou Lapointe

August 12, 1931 — May 1, 2023

MaryLou (Ardine) LaPointe, 91, of Saco, formerly of Caribou,  passed away on May 1, 2023, at Maine Medical Center in Portland with her family by her side. MaryLou had been a resident of Cape Memory Care in Cape Elizabeth, for the last six years during her long courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease.

She was born in West Enfield, Maine on August 12, 1931 daughter of Victor and Katherine (Bishop) Ardine.

While living in Fort Fairfield, Maine she was employed by The A&P potato processing plant up until the time the family relocated to Caribou, Maine in 1971. In Caribou, MaryLou took a position with the Caribou School Department working first as a recess duty aid, then in the cafeteria at the Hilltop School. This was her dream job because it involved two things she enjoyed the most, cooking and being around kids.

MaryLou's favorite past times included cooking, sewing, spending time with her grandchildren, and taking long walks with Scooter her beloved four legged companion.

MaryLou was of strong religious faith and a parishioner of Saint Margaret Church in Old Orchard Beach.

She was predeceased by her loving husband of 67 years Adrian and four sons Jim, Gary, Tom, and Dan. MaryLou was also predeceased by siblings Victor Ardine Jr, Albert Ardine, Pauline Carr, Francis Ardine, Clifford Ardine, Barbara Ardine, and Don Ardine.

She is survived by:

Her son - Dave LaPointe and wife Kristie of Charlestown, RI and grandson Scott and wife Samantha and great grandson Tyler of Houston, TX.

Her son - Jeff LaPointe of Charlotte, NC.

Her daughter - Lori Bryant and husband Jon of Saco and grandsons Zach and Spencer.

Daughter in law - Margaret LaPointe of Presque Isle and grandson Travis Chapman and wife Kellie, great grandchildren Kacie and Evan and granddaughter Jolie Chapman and great grandchildren Matthew, Abby, Madison, and Isiah.

Daughter in law - Sheril LaPointe of Caribou and grandson Traves and great grandchildren Libby, Sadie, and Wesley and granddaughter Lyndsay and husband Cole Theriault and great grandchildren Abbi, Lexi, and Coleson and two great great grandchildren.

Daughter in law - Kim Wardwell and husband Rod of Woodland and grandson Jimmy and wife Whitney and granddaughter Jessie and great grandson Devin.

MaryLou is also survived by two brothers Reggie Curry of Howland, Maine and Jerry Ardine of Michigan and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff at Cape Memory Care for the love and attention they provided MaryLou while a resident of their facility.

A graveside service will be held Saturday, June 17th at 10AM where MaryLou will be buried alongside her husband Adrian at New Holy Rosary Cemetery in Caribou, Maine.

Arrangements by Cote Funeral Home, Saco,  and Mockler Funeral Home, Caribou.
