Laura Lee Ann Bartlett - age 62, of Mills Road, passed away on April 11, 2021, at her home, while surrounded by her loving family, following an extended illness. Born in Lewiston, on December 10, 1958, Laura grew up in Augusta and is the daughter of Meylon G. Kenney and Lois M. (White) Kenney. She was a student athlete and graduate of Cony High School - Class of 1978 - where she took and passed a class taught by her Dad. She was also a member of the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks Lodge in Rockland.
Laura Lee (otherwise known as our beloved “LuLu”) was our green eyed, blond haired, perfectly manicured girl, filled with endless sunshine. She was our personal rainbow who added color to any pale sky. LuLu is the epitome of beauty, both inside and out. Constantly surrounded by many, she was often the life that filled any room, a personality that demanded attention, a best friend of too many to count, and someone who found joy in the smallest act of kindness. An avid outdoorswoman, she loved to fish and hunt, through all seasons, including but not limited to holding the family brook trout title at 4.5 pounds, as well as claiming the first family moose x 2. LuLu often enjoyed off road adventures on her Harley alongside her Mum, snowmobiling, four-wheeling or anything else with significant speed. The next time you sit by the ocean, look for her, you will see her in the shimmer that glistens off the waves. She lived a wonderful and happy life, she inspired us all in her courageous and fearless battle with cancer, and she is our absolute hero.
