Bangor - Patricia Knowles Drossel

A much-loved mother, Patricia Knowles Drossel, 89, of Bangor, Maine, passed away peacefully at her home November 25, 2017 following complications from a stroke suffered in early July of 2017. She had been receiving constant therapy at local nursing homes and later with home healthcare. She was born March 8, 1928 in Guilford, Maine, where she graduated from Guilford High School and later got married to Donald W Drossel. They initially resided in Brewer, Maine, moved to Bangor, before moving to the Feeding Hills section of West Springfield, Massachusetts, and later to Speigletown, New York, lying in New York State's Hudson Valley.

While the family lived in the Feeding Hills section of West Springfield, Massachusetts Patricia worked as the Assistant Manager of Camp Becket's business office, a boy's summer camp run by the Boston, Massachusetts YMCA in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts for three years. Following the family's move to Speigletown, New York she worked in the Service Departments for both Mintzer Petroleum, in N. Troy, and then later at King Fuels, in Albany, prior to retirement. She enjoyed life and friendships, whether it was with her closest friend Mildred Trafton in High School during the 1940s or later during the sixties with neighborhood friends in Speigletown, New York and was always open to new acquaintances.

She is survived by her son Stephen of 64 years, living in Bangor.

A memorial service will be held at 3:00p.m. Friday, October 12, 2018 at Lawn Cemetery, Guilford, Maine.
