- December 30, 2006

BREWER - Dorothy Pearl Heath, 81, passed away peacefully Dec. 30, 2006, at a Bangor hospital with her four children by her side. Dottie was born Sept. 2, 1925, in Orneville, the daughter of Carroll and Viola (Drinkwater) Royal. Dottie's family and friends were a priority throughout her entire life. Being a military man's wife, her family was often moving from air force base to air force base. While Arthur was away serving his country, she was doing her part by raising their children and taking care of the home. She made a lot of friends every where she went and often opened her house to the other military wives for daily coffee dates. After Arthur retired from the U.S. Air Force, they settled in Bangor and then Brewer, where they both had many family members close by. Even after retirement, Dottie still maintained her loyalty and support for the military troops. During Operation Desert Storm, you would find her in the crowd waving her flag and giving out thousands of hugs to many of the soldiers that came through Bangor International Airport. Dottie always made everyone welcome at her home and more then likely cooked extra food at suppertime just in case someone stops by. A passion of hers was taking pictures of the people in her life and corresponding with those not near. She also enjoyed playing cards with anyone who would play especially her grandchildren and her best friend, Millie. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 57 years, Arthur S. Heath, Aug. 5 2006. Dottie is survived by her children, Pam and Jim Hoodenpyle of Pleasant Hope, Mo., Mike Heath of Brewer, Scott and Kathi Heath of Veazie, Tom and Cathy Heath of Fayetteville, N.C.; her grandchildren, Kimberly, Jimbo, Adam, Kelli, Kristi, and Samantha; along with five great-grandchildren. Special mention to Billy Heath, Bobby and Gail Russell, Raymond Pawlendzio and family, Danny and Bonnie Avery. We the grandkids would like to express our deepest gratitude and love for the many hours she spent taking care of, playing with, and supporting us through the years. We love you and will miss you Grammy. Love Kimberly, Jimbo, Adam, Kelli, Kristi and Samantha. Visitation hours are 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2007, at Kiley Funeral Home, 69 State St., Brewer, where a memorial service will be held at 7:30 p.m., presided over by long time family friend, Pastor Carl Schreiber. Donations may be made in Dorothy's memory to St. Joseph's Hospital, 365 Broadway, Bangor, ME 04401. Dottie will be laid to rest next to her husband in the spring of 2007 at Evergreen Cemetery, Milo.
