SANGERVILLE and DOVER-FOXCROFT - Jacqueline Marie (Jones) Kimball, 91, formerly of Sangerville and Dover-Foxcroft, died on April 19, 2016, at Hawthorne House, Freeport. She was born in Dover-Foxcroft on January 16, 1925, to Robert H. Jones and Mona J. Gould. She attended schools in Dover-Foxcroft, where she performed in many musical events, including soloist for her eighth grade cantata "Evangeline," where she sang the role of Evangeline. She was a member of the Academy Glee Club while attending Foxcroft Acaademy and was the soprano soloist in the Glee Club's presentation of  Handel's "Messiah." Jackie spent her career working in the health care field as a CNA at Mayo Regional Hospital and Bishop's Boarding Home, ending her career as an activities director at Bishop's and Oakes Manor in Sangerville. She loved working with the elderly, and it was not unusual for her to finish her shift, clock out, and then go back to give special attention to her patients whom she felt needed extra care. In addition to loving her work with the elderly, she was also a champion for animals and wild life through her financial support of various programs, including Save the Wolves, Save the Whales, and the Bangor Humane Society. Jackie enjoyed the outdoors, especially camping and fly-fishing with her husband, but she especially loved playing with her grandchildren where it wasn't unusual for her to take them on walks in the woods, to take them down to the pond to meet "Charlie" the bull frog, and to end the day making mud pies with them. She was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Hylan R. Kimball of Dover-Foxcroft; her son, David "Gary" Dunning of Schickshinny, PA.; a grandson, Jason Dunning Sawyer, formerly of Dover-Foxcroft; her two sisters, Muriel Graham of Greenville and Phyllis Pelosi of Portland; and her brother, Robert Jones of Plattsburgh, New York. She is survived by her daughter, Sherry K. Nadeau and her husband, Christopher, of Saco; her son, Bryan R. Kimball and his wife, Rachel, of Sangerville; her grandsons, Toby Kimball and his wife, Debbie, of Milo and David Dunning of Wilton; her granddaughters, Tracy Nadeau Wright of Belgrade, Trisha Nadeau Conant and her husband, Jeff, of Scarborough and Melissa Dunning Sawyer formerly of Dover-Foxcroft; her great-grandchildren, Ryan Wright of Belgrade, Camdyn and Landry Conant of Scarborough; and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Freeport Place and Hawthorne House for the excellent, compassionate care they have provided these past 7 years. And also to Beacon Hospice who also helped care for her during this past year. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. on May 14 at the Abbot Evangelical Free Church, 102 Main Road, Abbot, with Pastor Rogan Taylor officiating. In lieu of flowers, one may make a donation to the Bangor Humane Society, 693 Hope Avenue, Bangor, ME 04401. Arrangements are under the care of Funeral Alternatives. www.funeralalternatives.net

Alan served four years in the Navy during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Looking for more of a challenge, Alan then went to the University of Maine Police and Security Department. In the earlier years there, he was also a Deputy Sheriff for Penobscot County. Once at the University, he knew he found a home. He worked his way up through the ranks, and achieved the position of Director of Public Safety, a position that he held until his retirement in 2000.

He was President of the Maine Campus and University Security Association, President of the Maine Chiefs of Police, and was a Founding Chief of the Penobscot Computer Law Enforcement System (PCLES). He worked with the University Athletic Department and the Bangor Daily News to produce the first "Kids and Cops" collectible trading cards and involved area Police Departments in the distribution of these cards. In Old Town, he was a member of the City Council and served one term as President of the City Council, Mayor of Old Town. He was an active member of the Parish of the Resurrection. There he served as a Eucharistic minister and was involved in the RCIA program. Alan was also a member of the Eastern Maine Model Railroad Club and loved to travel. He loved spending time with his family and always had his camera in hand at every Christmas, birthday party, anniversary, graduation, wedding and even "Sunday Meeting." He enjoyed many years camping with his family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Theresa; and three daughters, Alison Dufour and her husband, Jamie, Karen Thibault and her husband, David, and Susan Bagley and her husband, Ernie; and grandchildren, Tyler, Josh and Alexa Dufour, Stephanie Thibault, Kate Ginish and her husband, Kirk, Margaret and Jonathan Bagley.
