MARIAVILLE – Jeanette C. Kidder, 74, went to be with the Lord, her savior, June 4, 2019, in Otis, Maine, with her family by her side after a long and courageous battle with ALS. She was born August 13, 1944, in Norwood, Mass., the daughter of the late Jessie O. Walker and Evelyn (Perry) Walker. She married the love of her life, the late Herbert Dana Kidder Sr. on April 14 1962. She was very active in her community wherever she lived. She volunteered at the Bellingham Senior Center in Bellingham, MA. and the food pantry in Mariaville, ME and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. Jeanette was a hard worker and took pride in everything she did and cared more for her family than she did for herself. She was known for being the wacky grandma and always laughing and joking. She was an extremely loving mother to her four children; the late Annette E. Cooper and Larry, Patricia E. Soule and Victor Sr., Herbert D. Kidder Jr., and Kenneth M. Kidder Sr. She was a very special grandmother to Craig P. Domko, and Carla, Victor K. Soule Jr. and Amber, Torey D. Soule and Julie, Eric M. Cooper and Alicia, Shona M. Wright and Joshua, Kayla L. Padgett and Tyrel, Aleesha D. Cooper, Kenneth M. Kidder Jr., Christina Stratton, Desiree F. Leighton, and Emma E. Kidder and great-grandmother to Madisyn, Keslar, Quinn, and Lochlan. Jeanette was also a wonderful sister to Cheryl Peavey and Thomas, Mary Nelson and Gary, Linda DiFiore, Shelia Robak and Joseph, Ted Walker and Claire, Karen Berube and Kenneth, James Prosser, and Kathy Costa and the late Luis, as well as many nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her special friend of many years, Dennis Lamotte. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her, especially her children and grandchildren.
