Orono and Old Town
- Dawn Pelletier Evans Lacadie, 84, passed away on December 1, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.
Born on August 27, 1933, she was the daughter of Catherine Pelletier Evans Baranski and Richard Edward Evans.
Dawn was born and raised in Orono until she married the dashing Harold (Carey) Lacadie from French Island in Old Town. Together they raised five children on the island. Dawn was talented in art, music, gardening, floral arranging and design. She created magical floral and herb gardens that were comparable of any magazines.
Dawn did not work outside the home for many years, but she did many jobs while at home such as baby sitting and piecework. Her first job outside her home was the floral department manager at W T Grants. Later she worked at the University of Maine's Fogler Library in the government documents department, until retirement.
She spent time pursuing her interests; art lessons, learning French, bowling and playing cards and golf with her son, Dana. She and Harold laughed many Saturday nights away with Kenny and Marie, Walter and Deloris and Warren and Rose.
We would like to thank Orono Commons for the excellent care she received there and the compassion they showed to her and her family.
Dawn was predeceased by her husband of 60 years, Harold; her mother, Catherine Baranski and step-father, Stanley; and her father, Richard Evans.
Dawn is survived by her five children and spouses, Debora and Michael LaBree, Judith and Jonathan Hill, Harold Jr. (Butch) and Theresa Lacadie, Dana and Katherine Lacadie, and Janet and Rupert Lyon.
She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, Lucas, Catherine and Bradley LaBree, Tucker and Samuel Hill and Bailey Means, Mark and Daniel Lyon and Sarah Lyon Estes, Tyler Lacadie and Hannah Lacadie Murphy and Christian Lacadie; nine great-grandchildren. Livianna and Poppy LaBree, Halle and Graham Patrick Hill, Wyatt and Evie Means, Charlotte and Penelope Lyon and Parker Dawn Estes; her sister, Thelma Catrambone; sister-in-law, Marge Lacadie; and brother-in-law, Roger Parent.
The family invites relatives and friends to call from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, December 5, 2017, at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Wednesday, December 6, at Parish of the Resurrection, Holy Family Catholic Church, Old Town, followed by interment at Lawndale Cemetery, Old Town.
