Auburn, Maine - Sandra King Bolduc, 77, passed away peacefully at home July 26 surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was the daughter of James F. King and Eileen N. King (Poloski), being the youngest of 6 siblings. Born on January 1, 1941 in Portland Maine, she attended Portland schools and graduated from Edward Little High School.
She married Maurice Bolduc on January 25, 1958.
Sandra was an avid reader, cross stitcher and knitter. She enjoyed traveling.
She was always up for an adventure, be it traveling to Florida to see her eldest daughter or a journey along the Maine coast. Her love for the Maine coastline stemmed from her early years spent growing up on Munjoy Hill and the Eastern Promenade. Even in her later life she always enjoyed a picnic lunch with Amato’s sandwiches overlooking Casco Bay. Sandy would often recount pleasant memories of road trips taken with her husband to California to visit family.
Sandy was a kind loving woman who always put the needs of others before her own. Time spent with her grandchildren never failed to bring a smile to her face.
Sandy, together with her husband, raised five children. She instilled in all of them a strong sense of family, a love of reading, and an appreciation of the value of perseverance in all aspects of life.
Sandy worked for Androscoggin County Head Start for more than 30 years. She will be sorely missed by all who had been fortunate enough to know her.
She was predeceased by her parents, her brothers Vincent and Dick King and her sister Frances (Bette) Howland.
Sandy is survived by her husband of sixty years, Maurice; her sons Kyle and wife Monique of Bangor; Stephen and wife Paula of Mechanic Falls; James and wife Cynthia of Auburn; daughters Sandra Cullinan and husband Michael of Kissimmee FL; and Eileen Fanjoy and husband Brent of Auburn; 14 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers, William King of Buxton and James King of Mountain Home, Idaho. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews. Also surviving her are her two loving cats, Mr. Biggles and Eden.
A private celebration of Sandy's life will be held at a later date.
