- This is the story of Carol Adams. Carol J. 'Jeannie' Adams, 72, passed away peacefully in Bangor, April 24, 2017, surrounded by her family. She was born in Bangor, October 7, 1944, the daughter of Walter and Loretta (Martin) Gallant. Jeannie grew up in Old Town and was a wonderful woman that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Jeannie was an amazing wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, great-grandmother and BEANO buddy.
Jeannie would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received a call which was an offer she could not refuse for an assignment in which she will not be returning. This assignment comes with a big sign on bonus, a reunion with two husbands, a son, a sister and three brothers. Her new mission will take her to a wonderful place where she will be playing BEANO, socializing, dancing, watching Wheel of Fortune and spinning the Bonus Wheel on The Price is Right and always landing on $1.00. The food is delicious there and you never gain any weight. She left specific instructions for her mother, brothers, sisters, children, great-grandchildren, and friends to celebrate her life here. Ignoring her instructions will not be tolerated. We all want to let her know that she did a great job and wish her a safe journey. We will remember her smile, warmth, energy, hearty laughter, her love for life, and her love for her family and her special BEANO friends. She worked very hard her whole life and enjoyed life up until the very end.
Jeannie spent much of her younger life raising four boys in a loving home with her first love whom she missed and loved very much "Mickey" Plummer. She spent several years working for various rehabilitation facilities before retiring from the Maine Veteran's Home. Every Sunday morning, she would look forward to driving to see her mom Loretta and sisters before heading to BEANO.
Jeannie was predeceased and will be reunited by her father, Walter; one sister Betty, three brothers, Ricky Gallant, Phillip "Popeye" Gallant, Stevie "Scooter" Gallant; husbands, Francis "Mickey" Plummer and Charles Adams, Sr.; and a son, Shawn Plummer.
She is survived by her mother, Loretta Gallant of Old Town; brothers, Walter "Sonny" Gallant and wife, Nancy of East Grand and Florida, and Danny Gallant and partner Jeannie of Salisbury, Massachusetts; sisters, Debbie Horne of Old Town, and Brenda Gallant and partner, Scott Mansur of Greenfield; sons, Ronnie Plummer and wife Ann of Portland, Mark Plummer and wife Julie of Hermon, and Scott Plummer of New York and partner Laurianne Bayley. Grandchildren Michael, Kassidy, Sean, Josh, Shane, Joseph, Trevor, Zachary, Jessica, and Julia; and great grandchildren Matthew and Dylan.
We invite you to join us and celebrate together. A memorial service will be held 10 a.m., Thursday, May 25, 2017, at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town, followed by interment at the City Section of Mount Hope Cemetery. The family invites relatives and friends to celebrate Jeannie's life in her favorite place, her home in Hermon, following the interment.
