SEBAGO — Joyce Marie (Drane) Belliveau, 72, of Sebago passed away on Saturday, June 25, 2016, shortly after being diagnosed with cancer.

She was born Jan. 31, 1944, in Medford, Mass., a daughter of the late John and Daisy (Burgeron) Drane. She was a graduate of Malden High School, Class of 1961, where she was a majorette. She married Robert Belliveau in 1962. While raising their family in Malden, Joyce was an active supporter of the Malden Youth Hockey program. She organized the “Mighty Muffins” in 1974 and played with other moms against their sons in the hockey program.

After moving to Sebago in 1976, Joyce became an active member of the local PTA and served on the SAD 61 School Board. She had many odd jobs over the years to support her family including being an Avon Lady in the Long Lake area. In the mid eighties, Joyce moved her family to Maryland to support her husband’s career. There, she enjoyed her career as an administrative assistant for the First National Bank of Maryland.

Over the years, Joyce became the center hub of her growing and spreading family. She was known as an amazing cook with a heart of gold. She enjoyed cake decorating, crocheting and painting ceramics. Her proudest achievements, in her own words, are her 14 grandchildren.

Joyce is predeceased in death by her parents and her husband.

She is survived by her siblings, Jack Drane of Wakefield, Mass. and Marion DeMayo of Saugus, Mass.; her six children, Robert of Sebago, Paul of Madison, Conn., Richard of West Palm Beach, Fla., James of Falmouth, Donna of Minneapolis, Minn. and Jean of Summerlin, Nev.; numerous friends, cousins, nieces and nephews.
