BUCKSPORT – Catherine Rosemary Delano, 91, passed away peacefully, Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.
A Bucksport resident most of her life, Cay was predeceased by her parents, Capt. Francis Hatsil Delano and Inez (Jones) Delano; her brothers, Daniel and Charles; her sisters, Barbara Arnold and Frances Bemis. She leaves behind her beloved sister, Inez “Tootie” Chaisson; and six nieces and nephews as well as an extended family of great-nieces and nephews, for whom Cay was always a favorite aunt.
Cay worked for a number of years at St. Regis Mill in Bucksport, Hills Store and Longview Furniture Store. In her later years she gave up her job to care for her ailing parents, and then her brother, until they passed away. Her dogs and cats were her great pleasure in life. She loved her animals and thought of them as people. She will be sadly missed by a wonderful care giver, Carol Tardiff and her dear friends, Clara Fish, Pam Chaisson and Chris Rivard.
A private graveside service will be held in the spring. People wishing to remember her may make donations in her memory to the humane society of one’s choice. Arrangements are under the direction of Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home, Bucksport. www.mitchelltweedie.young.com
