Elaine Letendre, 75, a lifelong resident of Augusta, Maine, passed away peacefully in the presence of her cousins, Janice Corliss and Nancy (Corliss) Milliard on Sunday, March 10, at Androscoggin Hospice House in Auburn.

She graduated from Maine School of Practical Nursing in 1976 and continued her education at the University of Maine in Augusta where she earned her RN degree. Elaine’s true calling and passion was in the nursing field.

She spent her entire career at the former Augusta General Hospital working in the Emergency Room and Intensive Care Unit, and then transitioned to the Family Medical Institute (FMI) until her retirement in 2008. Her caring and compassionate personality was felt by the many patients with whom she came in contact.

Elaine enjoyed being with her friends and especially with her family. Some of her favorite pastimes included playing cards and dominoes, golfing, camping, traveling, (her trip to Hawaii being her favorite), crocheting, gardening, and continuously taking classes to enhance her knowledge in a variety of topics that interested her. She was an avid reader and especially enjoyed biographies, especially her most recent called Becoming by Michelle Obama. She was a true lover of animals and birds-she always made sure her bird feeders were full.

There is no doubt that her most outstanding characteristic-her beautiful smile and contagious laughter-will be sorely missed by all.

Elaine was born on July 7, 1943, and was predeceased by her parents Cecile (Letendre) Sousa and Manuel “Manny” Sousa, her brother Clifford Sousa, and her two beloved cats Mittens and Kal.
She is survived by several cousins, godchildren, nieces and nephews.

Friends and family may visit on Friday, March 15, from 4-8, (including a small service at 7:30,) at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant Street, Augusta, Maine. Spring burial will be announced at a later date.

Memorial donations may be made to Kennebec Valley Humane Society, 10 Pet Haven Lane, Augusta, Maine, 04330.

Well today is the day we say goodbye To my Aunt Elaine but I don’t believe in goodbyes.
All I want to say is that I Will Cherish the Memories the Talks at All hours The Chocolate Chip Muffins And cookies on My Birthday The Crazy Times We had with Uncle Bobby in the car on the Bridge in a Winter Storm and The Time we had to move the cats. I Will remember the Laughter and the Smiles You Had And Everything Else You Had Done For Me.

I watched Elaine go from being a nurse’s aide to RN and had the good fortune to work with her in the emergency department for several years. Her work ethic and willingness to continue learning were her trademarks. She was compassionate and honest, always looking to do the best for those in her care. May you Rest In Peace.

You were one of the biggest influences on my life growing up. I can't imagine where I would be if not for you and my mother. I will forever miss your laugh, which could brighten any day. I will always remember our vacations, whether it was camping in a rain soaked tent or in the gale winds of PEI. You single handedly taught me how to play cribbage in order to help me with learning math...which I hated. You were always brutally honest, but always sincere. I grew to respect you even more after interviewing you for my sociology class. You will be missed by every soul you ever touched.
