HOULTON – Doreen Sue (Stewart) Ritchie, 49, passed away July 23, 2015, in Houlton with family and friends by her side after a 6 yr. battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She was born Aug. 22, 1965 in Houlton, the daughter of the late Floyd & Loretta (Faulkner) Stewart.

Doreen was a very hard worker. She worked 10 yrs. at Brooks Pharmacy, and 21 yrs. for Walmart as a Department Manager. She loved all of the customers she met and her associates were all family to her. She always had a smile on her face, even when she was sick. She fought right up until the end, never giving up. She enjoyed going to Eastport with her husband, John, where they befriended Brenda and the late Eric Richards. They made her feel like family and enjoyed bonfires together. Doreen and Brenda later met in Eastport in memory of Eric and John.

Doreen is survived by three sisters and their families: Sandra Austin of New Limerick, Jan Dee and her husband, Bill of Main Stream, NB and twin sister Darleen Guy and her husband, Larry of New Limerick; several nieces, nephews and cousins as well as her cat, Frisky. She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, John and her brother, Robert.

Doreen wanted to personally thank all of the people who were there for her, giving her rides to Brewer and Boston, taking her out to eat and to bonfires when she was too weak. You all helped her to get out and about, too many names to mention, but you know who you are. She also wanted to thank the churches for praying for her and giving her cards. She really appreciated it.

Interment will follow the service at the New Limerick Cemetery. (Bangor Daily News 8/1/2015)
