Claire Rachel Simard Cote, 88, of 14 Ames Ave., Lewiston, died in her home on Oct. 6, 10 months after she was diagnosed with cancer.

Claire was born in Saint-Malo, PQ, Canada on Aug. 18, 1922, the oldest child of Henri and Antoinette (Reny) Simard. She attended Auburn schools and was a member of the Golden Arrows Drill Team of Auburn, which won the New England Championship and received national recognition in a performance at the New York World's Fair in 1930.
On April 15, 1944, Claire married Lionel Cote and moved to Ames Ave. in Lewiston, where they raised their four children and lived the rest of their lives. Claire devoted her life to her children and her family. She loved babies, had a zest for life and especially enjoyed the outdoors. Some of her favorite activities were gardening, raising parakeets, camping and photography. She had a keen wit and sense of humor and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by a daughter, Jeannine Beau Cote of Westbrook; three sons, Raymond and his partner, Terri Feeley of Lewiston, Phillip and his wife, Rita, of Virginia Beach, Va., and Roger and his wife, Gail, of Portland; seven grandchildren, Michael Cote, Christopher Cote, Barbara Fiske, Derrick Cote, Jason Cote, Russell Cote, Nelson Cote, and Chelsea Cote; seven great-grandchildren, Jordan, Hannah, Megan, Michael, Harmoni, Sawyer, and Corbin; three step-grandchildren, Shawn Conrad, Eric Conrad, and Alison Rand; two step-great-grandchildren, Nathaniel, and Owen; four sisters, Jeanne Doyon Goodwin, Therese Dennis, Carmen Doyon, Pauline Daigle; and two brothers, Paul and Rene Simard.
She is predeceased by her husband, Lionel, who died in 1988.
