Portland – Brenda Paquet passed away on November 20, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Waterville on September 15, 1956, she was the daughter of Fern Duval and Marlene Lachance. A 1975 graduate of Waterville High School, Brenda was employed as a legal assistant for most of her working career for Morton Brody in Waterville, Bernstein Shur in Portland, Jack & Steve Schwartz in Portland and Dan Emery in Yarmouth. Brenda had a great personality and immediately connected with people she met throughout her life both in personal and business settings. She was a fantastic cook, a sports enthusiast (especially ice hockey) and could have had a career as a professional organizer which came in handy in keeping her bosses well prepared. She ran a small daycare in Scarborough when her son was young so she could stay home until he reached school age.
Brenda loved dogs and had owned terriers up until recently when she chose to travel more to visit her son as he moved around the country. She attended the NCAA Frozen Four in Buffalo last year after her diagnosis to prove the cancer couldn’t keep her down. She is survived by her parents of Fern and Marlene of Winslow, her husband Scott of Portland, her son Marc and his wife Renee and grandson Alec of Belchertown, MA, a sister Diane Paquette and husband Jeff of Durham, NH, a brother John Duval and wife Joanne of Biddeford, ME, a sister Melissa Duval of Scarborough. She is also leaves four nieces Stephanie Duval of Oakland, CA and Courtney (Duval) Butler of Appleton, Elizabeth and Hannah Paquette of Durham, NH. She was predeceased this past year by her sister-in-law and chemo buddy Betty Paquet of Scarborough, and mother-in-law Margaret Paquet of Waterville.

Your wings were ready, but my heart was not. I could not have asked for a better Big Sister. Your smile and presence brought so much joy to all and lit up a room. You were always there for others. You will be dearly missed and are deeply loved. Heaven gained an angel. You will forever be in my heart and with me daily. Until we meet again. I love and will miss you. xo :o)
