JACKMAN - Julie M. Dubay, 68, died Jan. 10, 2013, at a Boston hospital after a courageous battle with a long illness. She was born May 1, 1944, in Portland, the daughter of Otis E. Lunt and Pauline E. (Toothacker) Ginther.
Julie lived in a variety of places throughout her life, spanning from Florida all throughout Maine. As a young woman she was a member of Order of the Eastern Star. She worked many jobs to support her family; however, she was first and foremost an accomplished artist, having had at one time a piece of artwork displayed at the White House and honored by the First Lady, Laura Bush.
Julie was predeceased by her parents and stepfather, Henry H. Ginther; brother, Howard L. Lunt; and sister, Jean W. Lomnick. She is survived by her fiance, William H. Frigon of Jackman. As a beloved mother of six children, she is also survived by Bruce H. Roberts and wife, Kendra P. Roberts, of San Diego, John E. Roberts of Bangor, Lisa J. Roberts of Bangor, Lee C. Roberts and wife, Brenda J. Roberts, of Cocoa Beach, Fla., Hillari A. Morgan and husband, Kevin C. Morgan, of Old Town and Rawnda N. Dubay of Detroit, Maine; as well as many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. For anyone who knew Julie, it was quite apparent that she lived her life for her children and grandchildren. She was an incredible mother who lent an ear, gave advice and supported her children in every way possible, right up to the end. All who had the privilege to know her will miss her tremendously.
Services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at Kiley & Foley Funeral Service, 299 Union St., Bangor. There will be a reception directly after the service at Tantrum Event Center, Bangor.
