Lisa J. Stewart
Forsley, 53
WATERVILLE - Lisa S. Forsley, a longtime resident of Oakland/Waterville, passed away peacefully Monday morning after living a life full of happiness, love, and compassion. Lisa was born in Waterville on June 4, 1962, the daughter of Calvin and Patricia Stewart and later graduated from Waterville High School in 1981 while continuing to pursue further education and lifelong learning. She married Rick Forsley on Nov. 25, 1988 in Waterville, Maine in the middle of an earthquake- which fortunately did not set the tone for 25+ years of a loving partnership.
Lisa spent much of her time outdoors, whether exploring the dunes of Cape Cod, playing competitive softball, golfing, or tending to her always successful gardens. She enjoyed reading about nature, cooking and preparing for family get togethers, and relaxing in the sunshine. Lisa enjoyed Maine's four seasons- while also taking the time to escape the snow and visit Florida in the winter. She regularly attended Catholic services in the Central Maine area and was an active member in local schools and volunteer efforts. For many years she dedicated her time as a Sunday School teacher and was also a Foster Parent. She was very involved in the lives of her children, from chaperoning field trips, to attending sporting events, and visiting them in college.
Lisa will be known for her selflessness and empathy for others- whether it was a neighbor, a coworker, or anyone in need; she was willing to lend a smile and provide helpful advice and wisdom. Her charm, sense of humor, passion for life, and positivity will be greatly missed. Lisa proved to be a wonderful and loving caretaker for her father Calvin who passed away in 2012.
She is survived by her mother Patricia Stewart; Lisa's husband Rick; children Hilary, Parker, and Schara Mailhot; Lisa's brother Stephen and his wife Cathy, and sisters Anne and partner James, Caroline and partner John along with many other loving family members.
A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Church 11:00 a.m. on Saturday Sept. 5. In addition, visiting hours will take place at Thomas College Summit Room from 6-9 p.m. on Friday Sept. 4th. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Veilleux Funeral Home, www.veilleuxfuneralhome.com
