Lorraine J. Dufour - age 79, of Eight Rod Road, died January 17, 2021 at her home after a brief illness surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Augusta, ME on October 19, 1941 the daughter of Jean Marie Arbour and Anita (Bernard) Arbour.
A devout Christian who loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, she faithfully served Him as an active member of St. Michael Parish at St. Augustine Church, and the American Association of Retired Persons.
Her love for her family and friends knew no bounds. She treasured her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, embracing every moment with them. Her positive personality, kind heart, and ever-present smile was contagious to everyone she met, oftentimes warming the hearts of complete strangers. Rarely would she say goodbye without giving you one of her world-famous, soul-healing hugs. Put simply, to know her, was to love her.
The simplest pleasures in life brought her great joy. Her hobbies included vegetable gardening, canning, playing in her flowers, decorating for the holidays, sewing, knitting, baking, feeding the birds and the never-ending battle with the squirrels. She loved spending time in her kitchen, creating delicious homemade meals, often daydreaming of operating her own restaurant one day. Her secret ingredient? A sprinkle of love.
In her earlier years, she enjoyed camping in the Maine woods and spending time at her son’s camp. Later in life, she became a bit more daring, joining her family for cherished adventures in Punta Cana, Quebec and Indiana.
She was employed by Dufour’s Welding, and was previously employed by Stiman Steel, Carlton Woolen Mills and Bates Manufacturing Co.
Our Mom and Memere was predeceased by her parents, by her husband, Albenie C. Dufour, a brother, Roger Arbour and a great grandson, Brooks Joseph Dufour.
Surviving is a daughter, Michelle Chamberland and her husband Ryan of Winthrop ME; three sons: Donald Dufour and wife Donna, Paul Dufour and wife Rachael, all of Augusta, ME and Kenneth Dufour and wife Ginny of Vassalboro, ME; one brother, Francois “Frank” Arbour of Augusta, ME; eleven grandchildren: Courtney Lamensky, Mackenzie Dufour, Connor Dufour, Cameron Dufour, Alyssa Quintal; Jennifer Dennis, Jonathan Coull, Brookelynn Dufour, Jillian Taylor, Colin & Isabel Chamberland, seven great grandchildren; Jake Dufour with another gift from God on the way, Wyatt and Mayzie Grace Quintal, Hayleigh, Raegan, Silas and Everett Dennis, a very special sister in law Kim Arbour, as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.
A special thank you to the staff at MaineGeneral Medical Center emergency department, 3 West and MaineGeneral HomeCare and Hospice for the excellent care of our mom during this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Michaels Parish at St. Augustine Church.
With Covid guidelines, family and friends may visit on Sunday, January 24th from 2-4 & 6-8 PM at Plummer Funeral Home, 16 Pleasant St., Augusta, ME.

Lorraine, my cousin, go way back. She used to give me perms when I was just a little girl. We Used to see each other regularly until I got married in 1976 and move to Lewiston Maine. We lost touch over the years and got reconnected again on Facebook. I went to see her a few years ago and we visited. We also visited at the Arbour Family Reunion a few years ago. I reconnected with all my cousins first, second and third cousins some of which I had never met. Most of us are now friends on Facebook. We don’t communicate much but we do have each other Facebook. Was very sad to hear of her sudden passing. I found out on Facebook! My deepest sympathies to the whole family and friends that new Lorraine she was a fantastic person! Prayers for all 🙏🧎🧎‍♂️🧎‍♀️🛐📿! RIP Lorraine my cousin.
