Lisa Ann Parlin Veniot, age 53 of Pittston, Maine, passed away at her home on Thursday, July 1, 2021. Lisa was born in Bristol, CT on May 16, 1967, to parents Si and Terry Parlin, of Richmond and Norway, ME.
Lisa enjoyed life and shared her infectious positivity and love with anyone blessed to know her. Lisa was always on-the-go, spending time with family, friends, her husband Ken, and her dogs, Ebony & Sadie. There was never an event, holiday or special occasion that Lisa was not aware of, prepared for, and excited about. She lived life with enthusiasm.
Lisa’s husband, Ken would say she worked full time caring for him and their granddaughter, Julianna; but Lisa was also a dedicated employee in the pharmacy department at Ahold Delhaize in Winthrop, and loved her career and co-workers, who became good friends. She was a member of the Central Maine Elite cheer team, as her granddaughter, Julianna’s “Cheer Nana.” Beyond family and friends, Lisa had many interests; spending time with her grandchildren, camping, swimming, games on her tablet with her husband, to name a few. It was never unusual for Lisa to sneak away to the beach and enjoy a cold Bud Lite and the sunshine.
Lisa is predeceased by her mother, Theresa R. Parlin, and sister, Theresa L. Parlin. She is survived by her loving husband, Ken Veniot, father, Silas W. Parlin and brothers Bill and David Parlin. Lisa is also survived by her children: sons, Anthony J. Less, Kenny Veniot, and Jonathan Hoenshell, and daughters, Amanda and Angela Hoenshell, and Mandy Veniot, several grandchildren: Julianna Gushue, Alisha Less, Eben Geroux, Jillyan, Connor, and Malia Hoenshell, and nephew, Nathan Parlin, as well as many other beloved family members.
A celebration of life will be held at Kincer Funeral home, Sunday, July 11, 2021 at 11am. A gathering of friends and family will follow at 12pm at the Richmond Grange Hall on Alexander Reed Road.
In lieu of flowers, we know Lisa would like to have donations made to Central Maine Elite Sports & Fitness Instruction and the Boys & Girls Club, both of Gardiner, Maine. A donation jar will be made available at both, Kincer Funeral home and the Richmond Grange Hall.
