Ann M. LePage(1932 - 2018)

Ann Marie (Gauthier) LePage, 85, of Fall River went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 26, 2018 from Grace Barker Health in Warren, RI where she spent her final days after a long illness. She was the loving wife of the late Fall River Fire fighter Orient J. LePage. Born in Fall River and lifelong resident of the city, she was the daughter of the late Clarence H. and Millicent L. (Adair) Gauthier and the sister of the late Robert E., Clarence J., James R. and Lawrence Gauthier. In the ninth grade she attended a school for Catholic Nuns in Nonquitt, Dartmouth. However, it was not her calling so she continued her education at BMC Durfee High School and graduated with the class of 1951. All through her life though, she was a very strong devout Roman Catholic who practiced her faith by attended Sunday Mass weekly and on Holy Days of Obligation, praying the Rosary every day, and educating her children in the Catholic Religion especially during Lenten Pray at home. She was a longtime parishioner of Saint Marys Cathedral, former parishioner of the sadly closed, and missed, Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church and Sacred Heart Church. In her blessed life, she loved all people without prejudice, enjoyed music especially Bon Jovi, loved dancing, spending time with her family and friends, traveling, loved animals, (especially cats), reading, playing cards with her friends, and hosting yard sales at her home. She also enjoyed expressing her creative talents in ceramics, crafts, crocheting, and sewing. As a dedicated housewife, she spent most of her time raising her family but for a short time, was employed part-time by R.E. Smith Printing Company in Fall River. She was also a proud supporter of the Fall River Fire Museum. She is survived by five loving children: Daniel R. LePage and his companion Diane D. Blier of Tiverton, RI, Debra A. Ashworth and her husband Philip M. of N. Dartmouth, Jacqueline M. Vangel and her husband Mathew of N. Dartmouth, Michael R. LePage of Fall River, and Steven L. LePage and his wife Linda of Swansea. Four Grandchildren: Brittany A. Adams of Bristol, RI, Lauren M. Holiday of Acushnet, Kayla A. Vangel of Fall River, and Katie L. LePage of Swansea. Three Great-grandchildren: Haley A. Cloutier, Aubrey J. and Macey R. Adams all of Bristol, RI. Two extended family members: Dennis P. Monast of Berkley and Kathryn Rodrigues of Beverly Hills, FL.
