New Waterford

With heavy hearts, the family announces the sudden passing of Annette Bates (nee AuCoin) at the Cove on Sunday, September 24, 2023, after a brief illness.

Annette was born in New Waterford on February 24, 1937, to Joseph and Annie AuCoin (nee Flynn). She's survived by her brother Jim (Sandy), her brother Jack (Heather), and two cats named Jarge and Daisy. She's predeceased by her husband, Maynard, sister Sharon, and brother Tony. She'll be deeply missed and lovingly remembered.

We invite friends and family to help us say goodbye on Friday at 2 p.m., September 29, at the chapel in Forest Haven.

                                           Fill Not Your Hearts

                          Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
                          But remember me in every tomorrow.
                          Remember the joy, the laughter, the smile,
                          I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
                          Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
                          My going has eased my hurt and given me relief.
                          So dry your eyes and remember me,
                          Not as I am now, but as I used to be.
                          Because I will remember you all,
                          And look on with a smile,
                          Understand, in your hearts,
                          I’ve only gone to rest a little while.
                          As long as I have the love of each of you,
                          I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.
