Carol Ann Dow, 82, peacefully joined her Lord and Savior on September 11, 2019 after her battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
She was born November 15, 1937, the daughter of Fred A. and Viola E. (Gordon) Martin.
Following her graduation from Sumner Memorial High School, in Sullivan, in 1954, she married Carleton D. Dow. They settled and raised a family in Bass Harbor. Carleton and Carol shared their love and marriage for nearly 50 years until his death in 2006.
Carol’s servant nature called her to become a homecare worker after working at the Jackson Laboratory and raising her family of 5 boys. She was a dedicated member of Cornerstone Baptist, Manset Union, and Tremont Congregational Churches.
Carol will be remembered by her family for her infectious smile, love of music, and delicious pies. Her love of the Lord was evident in everything she did. Her life was a living example of the bible verse, Ephesians 4:32-“And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” She was a caregiver for people of all walks of life, and especially loved caring for those who were less fortunate.
She is survived by a brother, Wayne and his wife Debbie, of Winter Harbor and Lake Worth Fl; sons Gregory and his wife Carrie of West Tremont; Peter and his wife MaryAnn of Grand Rapids, MI; James and his wife Annette, of Town Hill; Donald and his wife Angela of Ellsworth; and Dennis and his wife Alice, of Winter Harbor; 9 grandchildren, Lisa Parsons, Cassandra Crabtree, Blythe Dow, Mallory Groenevelt, Megan Dow, Mackenzie Dow, Madeleine Dow, Delaney Dow, and Carleton Dow; and one great grand-daughter, Shelby Parsons.
Join her family at a Celebration of Life ceremony to take place on Sunday, September 29, 2:00 p.m. at Tremont Congregational Church in Bass Harbor. Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 1139 Main St., Mt. Desert. Condolences may be expressed at www.jordanfernald.com
