Baring, Bangor - With a kiss on the cheek from her daughter, and a final embrace, Alice peacefully took her last breath on this earth August 7, 2018 at home in Bangor. Fellow Believers in Christ have Faith that Alice was then ushered into her Eternal Heavenly Home.
On June 27th, 1920, Alice Erdine Scribner was born in Alexander, Maine to parents Theodore Scribner and Ina (Perkins) Scribner. She was the youngest of 5 children who later in life along with her parents predeceased her: Ethel (Scribner) Demers, sister and brothers Ivan, Merton and Guy Scribner, and her husband Harold passed in 2006.
Alice and her parents moved to Calais in 1928 where she was schooled and graduated from Calais Academy.
In 1945 Alice married Harold Dodge, also of Calais. They lost their precious first child, Judith Elaine Dodge, to a tragic accident. Their second child Linda Jane Dodge was born five months after her “big sister’s” death.
Alice was a down-to-earth farmer’s daughter and devoted to Washington County. She was often teased about getting homesick just south of Bangor! Alice was passionate about nature in all of its forms and planting beautiful flowers was her hobby.
Her calling in life was that of wife, mother and homemaker. Her daughter considers motherhood to have been her mom’s “Crowning Glory”, stating, “How blessed I am to have had such an amazing woman for a mother”.
Alice loved birds, especially her Mourning Doves and fed up to 45 a day while in Baring. She was a protector of hurt, abused or neglected animals and many a stray found a “forever home” under her roof. She adored her Pomeranian Terrier “baby boy” Cookie, now age 15.
Alice loved her Lord, and had longed for the day when she would see Him face-to-face; at age 98 that longing was fulfilled.
Funeral service will take place on Sunday, August 12th, 12:00 noon at the Calais Cemetery. Mays Funeral Home is handling all arrangements for the service, including available seating.
