Carol S. Kypta
Carol S. Kypta, 82, peacefully died on Tuesday January 26, 2021
Carol was born August 20, 1938 in North Dakota and moved to Lewiston in 1975. She retired from People’s Heritage/Mid Maine Savings /TD Bank. During her retirement years she volunteered at CMMC and the Dempsey Cancer Center.
Carol was small in stature, but had a big heart, smile and sprit for life. Carol and her husband, Alfred, enjoyed hiking, cross country skiing and canoeing. At age 64 she joined her eldest grandson in celebrating his high school graduation by going skydiving – she said it was the best thrill of her life and that she was only 64 once in her lifetime. She celebrated her 79th birthday with her youngest daughter in a hot air balloon ride over the twin cities, again an adventure of the utmost highest.
Survived by loving husband Alfred Kypta; daughters Patricia (Mrs. Clement) LeMieux, of Lewiston and Tamra (Mrs. Ronald) Pierce of St.Petersurg Florida; daughter in-law Pricilla Thoreson (wife of son, Eric), of Withrop; 5 beloved grandchildren – Ian LeMieux (wife Victoria) and Kyla LeMieux-Alexander (husband Rich), Eileen Thoreson-Coleman (husband John) and Chase and Jessica Pierce; 4 cherished great grandchildren – Lane and Cote Alexander, Ivy and Theo LeMieux; and brother Doug Sutherland of California.
Preceded by sons J. Eric Thoreson (2020) and Scott D. Thoreson (1994).
The family wants to heartwarmingly thank all the wonderful staff of Bolster Heights Residential Care Facility in Auburn for their years of care and compassion provided to Carol and her family.
