EAGLE LAKE – Beulah (Gagnier) Saucier, 87, died Feb. 1, 2007, at the Aroostook Health Care Center, Mars Hill. She was born July 14, 1919, at Portage Lake, the daughter of Hector and Mary Ann (Freeman) Gagnier. Beulah lived on Eagle Lake most of her life, where she and her late husband, Claude, built a family business, which included a general store, a pulpwood brokerage and rental cottages on St. Froid Lake. In a town that had no hotel, she also took in boarders and fed them traditional French meals. She especially loved the outdoors and enjoyed picking berries, fiddleheads and dandelions. In the spring and summer, every spare moment was spent in her flower and vegetable gardens. Beulah was passionate about fishing and hunting. During bird season one could count on partridge stew and ployes. Her hands were always busy sewing curtains for the cottages, knitting mittens for grandchildren or dealing a hand of cards. She had few opportunities for formal education herself, but was determined that all of her children would receive a college education, a goal that she accomplished. Surviving are her five children, Barbara and her husband, Thomas Monroe, of Trinity, Texas, Linda Tourtellotte of Southington, Conn., Martha Seavey of Orrington, Deborah and her husband, David Jones, of Presque Isle, and Paul Saucier and his wife, Myrna Koonce, of Brunswick; one brother, Harold Gagnier and his wife, Simone, of Venice, Fla.; three sisters, Bernadette Perkowski of Manchester, Conn., Jacqueline Boothby and her husband, Dick, of Westbrook and Geraldine D’Auteiul and her husband, Gerard, of Palm Bay, Fla.; 13 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to both her parents, Beulah was predeceased by her husband, Claude Saucier in 1989; two sisters, Walteen Soucy of Bangor and Bernice Kelley of Fort Fairfield; three brothers, Camille of Eagle Lake, Roger of Port Rickey, Fla., and Donald of Southington, Conn. Friends may call at Daigle & Nadeau Funeral Home, Fort Kent, 6-8 p.m. Sunday and 9 a.m. Monday until time of departure for Eagle Lake. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 11 a.m. Monday at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Eagle Lake. Committal service in the spring will be at the parish cemetery.
