LISBON FALLS — Laura Blanchette, 53, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, after a courageous battle with cancer.

She is survived by her husband, Pierre Blanchette Jr. and her son Stephen Blanchette of Lisbon Falls. She was the daughter of Lester S. Emerson and Margaret Berry-Coffin, who are both deceased.

She graduated from Brunswick High School and worked for Amentiy Manor in Topsham, then the Dollar Tree in Topsham until her illness. She loved flea marketing and yard sales, and enjoyed looking for the good deals.

Her family wishes to pass on Laura’s wish for no flowers. Any donations should be made to the Dempsey Center in Lewiston.
