Obituary for Lois Copeland

- Kennebunk

Lois C. Copeland of Kennebunk, Maine, and formerly of Portland, Connecticut, passed away peacefully on the morning of June 6, 2017 in York, Maine. Lois was surrounded by her loving husband and sons.

The daughter of Lois and Irving Chappell, she was born in Maine, moving in her youth with the family to Connecticut, and eventually settling in Portland. She graduated from Portland High School and attended Southern Connecticut State College, leaving school to raise her family. Lois worked with the children of Portland for nearly 25 years as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional at Valley View School. She often talked about how gratified she was to have been part of so many children’s progress.

Lois is survived by her husband Chauncey; son Scott and daughter-in-law Kristin of Trumbull; son Grant and daughter-in-law Meghan of Guilford; grandchildren Emma, Aidan, Ella and Adam; brother Wayne Chappell and sister-in-law Barbara of Durham; and brother Scott Chappell and sister-in-law Deborah of Meriden.

A sharp, passionate and creative person, Lois was very generous with her time and talents – contributing to numerous family endeavors, school programs and community organizations. While she enjoyed music, gardening, writing, floral arranging and beach walking, her family was always her key focus. Lois was so proud of her children and her grandchildren, and cherished time spent with them.

A memorial service and reception will be held on Saturday, June 24th at 2:00 pm at the First Congregational Church, 554 Main Street, Portland, CT.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
