Monson – Paula Rose Peirce, 66, passed away January 27, 2021, at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center. She was born December 22, 1954, in Bangor, the daughter of Paul and Alta (Herbest) Wellman.
Paula retired from Dexter Shoe in Milo. She spent most of her retirement days going from Bingo hall to Bingo hall. Not only did she have a love for games, but she loved to sit and chat with all her Bingo buddies. Her family and friends meant the world to her. Some would refer to her as the Town Crier because she would spend hours on the phone just to call and tell everyone else “the news”. We will forever miss those bits of juicy gossip.
Paula is survived by her stepfather, Ronald Baker of Lagrange; three sons, Glenn Peirce Jr. and his wife, Bobbi Jo, of Lagrange, Andrew Peirce and his wife, Maranda, of Daytona, FL, and Adam Peirce of Brownville; two daughters, Barbara Ward and her husband, Robbie, of Bernard, and Michelle Peirce of Lagrange; three brothers, Dennis Wellman of Bangor, Glenn Wellman of Alton, and Joseph Baker and his wife, Jennifer, of Lagrange; three sisters, Renee Wellman of Lagrange, Joanne Smith and her husband, David, of Bradford, and Gayle Decker and her husband, Alan, of Lagrange; six grandchildren, Rebecca, Makayla, Skylar, Brandon, Zachary, and Brianna; great-grandson, Brantley; significant other, Peter Cook; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, and her brother, David Wellman.
A graveside funeral service will be held in the spring at the family lot in the Hillside Cemetery, Lagrange. Arrangements are in the care of the Lary Funeral Home. Messages of condolence and memories may be expressed at www.laryfuneralhome.com.
I NEVER SAID GOOD-BYE
I never got the chance to say I love you,
I never got the chance to say I’ll miss you.
Nobody told me that you were going to die,
It hurts, I never said GOOD-BYE.
Where are you now, please talk to me,
Show yourself and let me see.
I know that can’t happen no matter how much I try,
All I wanted to do is say GOOD-BYE.
I hope that you are happy wherever you are,
I have you in my heart no matter how far.
To the havens above, I wish I could fly,
Only to give you a warm GOOD-BYE.
I will remember you each day that I live,
You were such a good person with so much to give.
Such a privilege to have known you, no one can deny,
I think it might be time to say GOOD-BYE.
I will keep with me the good times that we shared,
I want you to know just how much I really cared.
Till we meet again, on God we must rely,
I love you, I miss you and for now, GOOD-BYE.
