My parents, Philippe and Lorraine Deschens, were from Grand Falls and Drummond, New Brunswick. They moved to Maine and raised 8 children - 7 girls and 1 boy. My father worked at the local paper mill and also worked as a carpenter - which he was great at. He built many homes in East Millinocket, Medway and Millinocket, Maine. There children are as follows: Adrienne Deschenes Thompson, Edwina Deschenes Stanley, Romeo Deschenes, Shirley Deschenes Tapley, Susan Deschenes Jarvis, Lisa Deschenes Harmon, Lori Deschenes Martin and myself, Doreen Deschenes. My father died in 1982 and my mother just recently died this past October. They were wonderful parents and I am honored by my heritage.
