Obituary

WESTBROOK - Georgia Elizabeth Kenniston Fecteau, 86, of Westbrook, formerly of Waterville, passed away peacefully on Aug. 9, 2019, at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough. She was born in Bangor on Dec. 15, 1932, the daughter of David W. Kenniston and Nellie A. Smith Kenniston.

Georgia attended a one room school house in Amherst, Maine, through the eighth grade. She attended high schools in Brewer, Maine and Florida and went on to graduate from Waterville High School. She then became a licensed practical nurse and worked at several facilities including the Central Maine Sanatorium and the Bangor State Hospital. She retired from AMHI after 20 years of service.

Georgia was a member of the Silence Howard Hayden Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and a member of the Maine State Association of Retirees. After retiring, she enjoyed volunteering at Waterville area hospitals, nursing homes and various other places.

Georgia also enjoyed playing cards, knitting, crocheting, reading and dining at fine restaurants. She loved scenic drives, especially along the coast. She would often ask to follow an unknown road hoping to find some breathtaking sceneries and many were found.

She was predeceased by her parents, her stepmother, her son, Clifford Fecteau, her husband, Philmore Fecteau, her sister, Daveeda Brown and her nephew, Ervin Brown Jr.

Georgia is survived by her son, Thomas Little of Westbrook, a half-brother, David Kenniston of Amherst, a stepdaughter, Elizabeth Glidden of Augusta, her niece, Susan Little of East Vassaboro, and several other nieces and several nephews.

There will be a celebration of her life at the Italian Heritage Center at 40 Westland Ave., Portland, on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019, at 11 a.m. A graveside service will be held at Pine Grove Cemetery, 61 Grove St., Waterville, on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2019 at 2 p.m.
