Rose Marie Dakin
Rose Marie Dakin, 75, passed away April 28, 2014 at EMMC with her loving family by her side. She was born in Searsport, Maine Oct. 9, 1938 to Thelma and James Clark Sr.
Beautiful, talented, smart, kind-hearted, lovable, sweet, wise and out-going don't begin to describe our wonderful mother and grandmother. Mother or Gram, as so many called her, loved sewing, splitting and stacking wood for the upcoming winter. Nobody stacked the ends the way she did. Those are big shoes to fill, Jason! And her love for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren was that real, honest, genuine unconditional love!
She was predeceased by her loving husband Lee Dakin, two sisters Jaunita Lawrence and Cherry Hustus, and a brother James Clark.
She will be sadly missed by: son Alan Dakin of Swanville; daughter Sheila Dakin of Searsport; son David Dakin and wife Kelly of Frankfort; grandson Jason Dakin and wife Katie of Searsport; granddaughter Jessica Tesseo and husband Michael of Palermo; granddaughter Jennifer Bailey and husband Peter of Northport; granddaughter Kateland Dakin of Frankfort; five great-grandchildren; Jaylee and Alex Dakin of Searsport; Colby Tesseo of Palermo; Trista and Kristina Bailey of Northport; brother Pete Clark of Searsport; sister Tiny and Dick Millett of Guilford; brother Donnie and Carol Clark of Eddington; and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank the staff at EMMC, CCOM, and Waldo County Home Health Care for all the wonderful care given to her.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of Riposta Funeral Home ,182 Waldo Ave. Belfast, ME 04915.
