PENOBSCOT - Our mom, Elaine Ida (Colson) Dorr, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on October 15, 2014. She was born January 30, 1935, in Milbridge, Maine, the daughter of William and Lillian (Beal) Colson.
Elaine was a great gardener, loved plants and could grow most anything. She loved watching the birds, too and fed them years round. When she was younger she also loved to rake blueberries. Due to declining health, in the last few years, she was very limited in what she could do but thanked the Lord for each day.
She leaves her daughters, Sally Judkins and family, Susan Hatch and family of Penobscot and Cheryl Crawford and family of Castine; her sister, who was very dear to her, Ethel Garnett and her husband, George, of Bradenton, FL,; and her late sons wife, Sheila Keith and family of Sallisaw, OK. She was predeceased by her parents; her husband, Ed; her son, Billy; and a granddaughter, Deena Lee Judkins.
Elaine was a member of the Steuben Union Church. We wish to express our thanks to Tracey Wills, mom's caregiver, for the time, care and love she gave mom during her last days here on Earth.
A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, October 18, 2014, at Hillside Cemetery in Penobscot for Elaine and her husband, Ed, who died May 7, 2009, with Pastor Dale Chasse officiating. Arrangements are under the care of Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Bucksport. www.mitchelltweedie-young.com
