Breton, Richard R.*  
1932-2014 AUGUSTA - Richard R. Breton, age 82, died unexpectedly Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at his home. He was born in Augusta on January 10, 1932, a son of the late Arthur L. and Adrienne (Allarie) Breton. Mr. Breton attended Augusta schools and was a U.S. Army veteran, serving during the Korean War. He had been employed by Central Maine Power Company for 25 years, retiring in 1991. He previously had been employed by Bates Manufacturing, Edwards Division, Calderwood Bakery and Pomerleau's Bakery. Richard and Joan Comeau were married by the Rev. Joseph O. Casavant at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Augusta on September 21, 1957. He was a man of strong faith. He was very kind and compassionate to people's needs. He was always available to help those less fortunate than he. He was a firm believer in God, family and country. He loved his home and truly enjoyed working in and out of his home. His vegetable garden was a work of art. He not only enjoyed taking care of his garden but also enjoyed sharing the fruit of his crop with his family, friends and neighbors. He always felt rich due to the fact that he had a home and a nice piece of property and thanked God daily for all that He had given him. He always felt that he had to take good care of his property, as that was what God wanted of him. He felt that every one on earth was created by God, for one reason or another, whether a human being or an animal. To Joan, he was the "love of her life" and supported her throughout all of their married lives with all and/or any activity she was involved in. He will be greatly missed. Richard was highly involved on the Steering Committee for the Restoration Fund of St. Augustine Church. He worked effortlessly on this project for a period of five years. Richard had a collection of the Dickens Christmas Village, over 40 houses and all the characters you could imagine. He always looked forward to putting that up late in October or early November and this was thoroughly enjoyed throughout the holidays by family, friends and any one that wanted to see it. He loved to work with wood, whether it was cutting wood to feed the wood stove or working at making a Créche. Richard was a communicant of St. Augustine Catholic Church and was a member of the Abnaki Council 3rd Degree Knights of Columbus, Abnaki Assembly 4th Degree Knights of Columbus and its Color Corps, Cursillo Movement, Cushnoc Senior Citizens and was a Life Member of Le Club Calumet. Richard was predeceased by a brother, Raymond Breton; and a sister, Juliette Safford. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Joan C. (Comeau) Breton, of Augusta; a brother, Laurent J. Breton and his wife, Sandy, of Sidney; as well as several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Stover, Elizabeth "Betty"*  
1953-2014 AUGUSTA - On November 14, 2014, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, Elizabeth "Betty" Stover, passed peacefully away in her home while surrounded by her family. There are so many words to describe the amazing women we all were blessed to know and hold close to our hearts. Betty was born on October 11, 1953, in New Britain, Conn., to parents Margaret and Robert Rickett. She attended school in Gardiner, Maine, and graduated from Thomas College in Waterville, Maine. She met the love of her life William "Smokey or Bill" Stover in 1972 and they were married on October 25, 1975. Betty and her husband raised their family on a small, but lively farm on Togus Pond. They had two children, Jessie and William, whom she loved more than they could ever know. She gave up working for the State of Maine to become a stay at home mom, so as she put it "could be there when they got off the bus." Betty was a great lover of nature, animals and children in need. She cared for foster children in her home for 33 years (at one point caring for 10 children in their then four-bedroom home). When a call for help for an emergency placement came in the night, she would rush to prepare a bed. Often times these temporary placements lead to years and lifetime relationships. She never gave up hope for those that others had labeled hopeless, she believed that "everyone deserved a chance (or several)." Betty loved animals. She would often go to visit a friend or attend an appointment coming home with a baby goat, sheep, chickens or other small farm animals. She loved to be out in the pasture or barn performing chores or just enjoying time outdoors. She raised Keeshonden Dogs and loved showing them and keeping them as pets. She especially enjoyed raising Old English Babydoll Southdown Sheep, Angora goats and Angora rabbits. She and her husband Bill established Spinnakees farm and were frequent exhibitors at Common Ground Fair, Fiber Frolic and other Artisan Events were they would display and sell fine woolen items and home-spun yarns. Betty always worked hard to achieve many goals, often falling asleep behind the spinning wheel while entertaining friends and family, due to a previous late night, working to finish product for an upcoming event. She was a creative lady who enjoyed many hobbies, including Rug hooking, Knitting, Felting and anything to due with wool! Betty loved her church Cox United Methodist Church in Hallowell, Maine. She spent much time supporting its ministries sharing with others this love. Betty is survived by her devoted husband Bill; daughter Jessie and son-in-law Shawn; sons William and wife Amanda, Andrew and wife Mika, Stephen and Daniel' along with grandchildren Charlotte, Mitchell, Kain and Tavish; mother Margaret; sisters Roberta and Joyce; a brother, John; and numerous other children whom she loved and cared for. Calling hours will be held on Friday from 3 to 7 p.m., with a Celebration of Life on Saturday, November 22, at 11 a.m. Both will be held at Cox Memorial UMC, 29 Middle Street, Hallowell. The family will be hosting a reception at their home following the funeral. For all who knew Betty well, she always asked people not to give her cut flowers. "They die too quick, waste of money," she would say. She would much rather the money be donated to a children's cause. We ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be sent to the "Unangst Fund" at Winthrop Area Federal Credit Union, 94 Highland Avenue, Winthrop, ME 04364 in memory of Elizabeth Stover.
