Gloria's Story

DETROIT - Gloria Mae (Carey) Dahlgren, 57, died peacefully September 25, 2014 at a Bangor Hospital. She was born February 23, 1957 in Salina, Kansas, a daughter of Carl and Charlene (Buzzell) Carey.

Gloria attended Lee Academy and graduated from high school in Lincoln. She married Michael Jandreau and raised their son, Michael Jandreau, Jr. in the Lincoln area. Following a divorce she moved to Old Town and was employed in security at the James River Corporation. In 1990, Gloria moved to Detroit and married Kirk Dahlgren. For the last twenty years she worked for the Palmyra Walmart.

Gloria's greatest joys were her son, two precious grandchildren and family. She enjoyed conversation with everyone she met, a good book, traveling, campfires, photography, and walking along the shoreline searching for shells and sea glass. Gloria had a gift to bond with others, and leaves behind numerous special friends and devoted members of her church family at People's United Methodist Church in Newport.

She was predeceased by her father Carl. Gloria will always be in our prayers.

A celebration of her life will be held at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 11th, at the People's United Methodist Church with Rev. Ellen Bridge officiating. A reception will follow the service at the church memorial hall.
