Presque Isle and Ashland - Joyce L. Charette, 65, died March 18, 2019 in her home in Bangor that she shared with her daughter. Joyce finally lost her battle with a long term illness for which she had fought hard. She was surrounded by her children upon her passing. Joyce was born May 18, 1953 in Presque Isle, the daughter of Frank Sr. and Joyce Leola (Ackerman) Ayotte.
Joyce attended Presque Isle High School. After high school she married Wayne V. Charette, and lived in Ashland where she raised her family and was happily married for forty-five years. Joyce was a dedicated employee of Burrell's Luce for over twenty years. Joyce was a proud member of the Ashland Chapter # 9699 Ladies Auxiliary VFW. She always looked forward to attending Thursday night bingo games.
A special thank you with a warm heart goes to her assigned VNA Hospice team, along with volunteers and the wonderful detailed care she received. Joyce took great comfort in her daughter-in-law, Sara, and how she cared for her needs through until the end.
In addition to her parents, Joyce was predeceased by her husband, Wayne V. Charette. Joyce is survived by her children, Wendy Charette, Wayne Charette Jr., and James Charette; as well as her seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; three brothers; and three sisters.
In keeping with Joyce's wishes a graveside service will be held 12:00 p.m Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Johnson Cemetery in Presque Isle. Those wishing to remember Joyce in a special way may make donations in her memory to the Northern Light Homecare and Hospice Foundation, P.O. Box 931 Bangor, ME, 04402-0931.

I only met Joyce one time but it left a lasting impression that she was a very nice person.
