Bernice (Sturgeon) Theriault
SCARBOROUGH - Bernice (Sturgeon) Theriault passed away peacefully on Monday, April 9, 2018, at her home, where she wanted to be, surrounded by her family. She had struggled with various illnesses for many years and, most recently, in January 2018, was diagnosed with lung cancer.
Bernice was born and raised in St. John, Maine, and was the daughter of Herbie and Helen Sturgeon. She later moved to Caribou, where she met and married her loving husband of 37 years, Patrick L. Theriault, who predeceased her on Sept. 26, 1998. They relocated to Portland, and eventually settled in Scarborough, where they raised their four children, and she resided for the last 50 years.
She was predeceased by both parents, five brothers (Bee, Leo, Maynard, Dave and Alphonse Gagne), and three sisters (Annie and Claire Gagne and Joanne Carnahan); and is survived by her four children, Helen Desjardin, of Yarmouth; Patrick Theriault and wife, Mary Ellen, of Wells; Tammy Brown and husband, Terry, of Scarborough; and David Theriault; two brothers, Douglas Gagne, of South Portland; and Donald Sturgeon, of Scarborough; seven grandchildren, Olivia, Audrey, Samantha, Tanner, Taylor, Leah and Cruz; as well as many nieces and nephews.
She will be lovingly remembered by her children and grandchildren as a hardworking woman with purpose, strength and a determination to live; all qualities that they admired her for.
There will be a private graveside service. Arrangements are under the direction of the
Conroy-Tully Walker South Portland Chapel,
2014 Broadway, South Portland. To view Bernice's memorial page, or to share an online condolence, please visit:
