Joan Frances Rosie, born February 17, 1927 in Bangor, Maine passed away Sunday May 17, 2021 after a short period of declining health. She was the daughter of Arthur E. and Jean (Monroe) Rosie.

Joan graduated from Bangor High School and Colby-Sawyer
College in New London, New Hampshire.

She worked in the early 1950s in California for the First National Security Bank of Los Angeles. She returned to Maine and was employed for 21 years at The Merrill Trust Company as Executive Secretary to the President and Chairman of the Board. Following that, she worked for 20 years at Maine Information Systems, a computer center owned by three commercial banks in Bangor.

After retirement she volunteered as an accountant for the Cole Land Transportation Museum, United Way, RSVP, My Friend’s Place, and as a board member of the King’s Daughters Home.

Joan was a member of the First United Methodist Church and Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Throughout her life she had a deep love of young children and animals. She traveled extensively with the YWCA groups each year and enjoyed trips to foreign destinations. Joan was an avid and expert knitter. She played an important role in family holidays and celebrations, taking a sincere interest in her grand nieces and nephews lives. For many years, “Santa’s gifts” were secretly hidden at her residence until Christmas Eve. On Christmas morning she was known to appear extra early with gifts and her traditional treats of doughnuts and fresh squeezed orange juice. We will miss her.

Joan was predeceased by her parents, her brother and sister-in-law, Robert & Venetia Rosie, and her niece Janie Rosie Crowell.

Survivors include her niece, Dianne Rosie O’Donnell and husband Claude O’Donnell of Newmarket, NH. She is also survived by four grand nieces and nephews: Kate O’Donnell Hannan, Joshua O’Donnell, Anthony Cardoza, and Mollie Cardoza. She dearly loved her six great grand nieces and nephews: Paris, Clare and Edward Hannan, Jake O’Donnell, Gabriel Voter and Marina Cardoza. Also survived by her niece’s husband, Ted Crowell.

The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to St Joseph Hospice and Total Care Solutions of Holden where she received warm and loving attention.

Graveside services will be held 1:00 pm Wednesday May 26, 2021 at Woodlawn Cemetery, Brewer, with Dr. Steve Smith, pastor of the First United Methodist Church, Bangor and the Corinth United Methodist Church, officiating.

Gifts in her memory may be made to the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter, 263 Main St., Bangor, the Bangor Humane Society , 693 Mt. Hope Ave., Bangor or the First United Methodist Church 703 Essex St. Bangor, ME. 04401.
