Waneta H. Lagasse Obituary
Waneta H. Lagasse, 98
LISBON - Waneta H. Lagasse, 98, formerly of Gray, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on June 23, peacefully at the home with her son Charlie Lagasse in Lisbon. Waneta was born on Nov. 23, 1916, in Westbrook, to Nina Anderson and Frank Knight. She lived in and attended school in Gorham, and as a young teen began to work in the hay fields and local canning factories. Her last job before becoming a stay at home mother was at S.D. Warren in Westbrook.
A few years after her marriage to Roland Lagasse, the family moved to Gray where she lived for nearly 45 years before health required here to live with her children. Waneta was active in church work and held many offices at the churches she attended. She was also a board member of the Christian Women's Club that met at Cole Farms for several years. Her main love was raising her family to know Christ and for each to become a positive influence to the world around them. Anyone who got to know her came to love her for her kindness and her godly wisdom.
She was predeceased by her parents; her husband; her brothers Charles Knight and Eugene Knight both of Gorham, and her sister Flavilla Billings of Westbrook. Waneta is also survived by sister Helen Borek of Homestead, Fla.; and her six children, Pauline Williams of Union, Leroy S. Morrill Jr. and wife Linda of Gray, David Currier of Hawaii, Peter Lagasse and wife Joy of South Casco, Frank Lagasse and wife Anita of Burke, Va., and Charlie Lagasse and wife Beth Ann of Lisbon. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
Visiting hours will be Friday, June 26, 2015, from 5-7 p.m. at Dolby Funeral Chapel, 434 River Rd., Windham. The funeral service will be Saturday, June 27, 2015, at 10 a.m. at Dolby Funeral Chapel, officiated by her son Reverend Peter Lagasse. Immediately after, a committal service will be held at Hillside Cemetery, Gorham, officiated by her great-grandson Reverend Mike Ferland. For online condolences, please visit
