Obituary of Dolores P. DeGrasse

Please share a memory of Dolores to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Dolores “Dodie” Patricia (Quirion) De Grasse, known as Dodie, was born August 7, 1928 in Brewer, Maine to Julia and Evander Quirion.  One of eight children, Dolores grew up in Brewer where she attended St. Teresa’s Catholic School and later graduated from Brewer High School in 1946.  That same year Dodie married Everett Henry De Grasse of Orrington and together they had four children while he served in the military.  After a long affiliation as an Avon Consultant she then served as a Postal Carrier for 19 years, where she was known to all as the “Lollipop Lady,” before retiring on King’s Mountain.  Dodie was deeply caring in her relationships with every person she met, and was never bashful about meeting new people.  With Everett predeceasing her in January of 2000, Dodie made many new friends at the Sunbury Senior Living Center and later the Stillwater Care Facility.  Dolores passed on the first day of Spring, March 20, 2022 surrounded by her family, her dear friend Susan Peterson, and the many nurses and staff that cared for her so deeply.

Dolores is survived by her sister Evelyn and husband Chester Seidel; children Everett De Grasse Jr. and wife Julie, Norma Towne, Dawn and husband Jerry Edgecomb, Jane De Grasse and husband Kinn Kinney; grandchildren, Rick and wife Earleen De Grasse, Kirk and wife Stephanie De Grasse, Brett and wife Julie De Grasse, Chris and wife Hillary De Grasse, Michael and Michelle Towne, Sherry and husband David Hamel, Mark and wife Rachael Edgecomb, Kahlan and Kasey Kinney; great grandchildren Scarlett, Grace, Brawley, Lily, Wyatt, Squire, Cade, Brix, Jace, Axel, Madison, Jordyn, Grace, Garrett, Sierra, Leah, Gavin, Amanda and Brielle.
