Waterville, Maine ''' Gloria T. (Godin) Bosse, 87, of Mount St. Joseph went to our Lord on Monday, March 30, 2015, after a long and beautiful life.

Gloria was born in Waterville, Maine, on August 10, 1927 to Stanley and Eva (Houle) Godin. She graduated from Mount Merici Academy and remained dedicated to the Ursuline Nuns and their school throughout her life. In 1947, Gloria married Ludwin, her childhood sweetheart and the love of her life. Together they raised six children. Mom centered our lives on faith and love and made our house at 19 Messalonskee Avenue a wonderful home. Our Mother was the kindest and wisest woman we will ever know and a wonderful example to us all. Her faith led and carried our family through the tough times and the good times. She will be missed more than words can describe.

Gloria was predeceased from this life by her husband, Ludwin P. Bosse, her parents, Stanley and Eva Godin, her three brothers, Reginald, Jerome and J. Norbert Godin. She was also predeceased by her son-in-law, Thomas Russell, and her two grandsons, Gregory Moen and Keith Russell. Each of these losses took a piece of Mom's heart with them. Her survivors include her six children and their spouses, all very proud to be able to call her "Mom"-James and Janet (Weymouth) Bosse of Westbrook, Claire (Bosse) and James Moen of Oakland, Diane (Bosse) Russell and Marguerite Bosse of Winslow, Jeanne (Bosse) and Robert (Jay) Moreau of Oakland, and John and Gayle (Desrochers) Bosse of Maynard, MA. She was "Memere" to nine grandchildren/spouses-Karen Bosse, Jay and Laura (Welch) Bosse, Heidi (Moen) and David Whitney, Christina Moen, Kelly (Russell) and David Anderson, Heather (Douglas) Russell, Whitney Moreau, and Allison and Jennifer Bosse.
