Meredith Bickmore

  

KITTERY, Maine — Meredith "Dee" Bickmore, 68, of Cedar Drive in Kittery, died Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011, at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

 

Born in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine, on Dec. 30, 1942, she was a daughter of Willis and Clara (Hill) Thomas. She attended Foxcroft Academy, graduating with the Class of 1961. She furthered her education at Husson College.

 

She wed Frank Bickmore in 1963, and together they moved to York Harbor for a time before settling in Kittery, where she would raise a family and be an active part of her community.

 

While her children were young, Dee was an active mother, serving as a Girl Scout leader, music booster and in the PTA.

 

Dee worked for a time at York Hospital as the "TV Lady." While working at the hospital, she found her life's calling as a volunteer for the fairly new Hospice of York. After just a short time volunteering, a spark was ignited inside her and it was evident to everyone that she was a hospice pro. She took over as director 26 years ago. Dee led the program to grow into one of the most respected all-volunteer hospice programs in the nation.

 

She shared her love of hospice with many volunteers and patients throughout the years, locally and as a member, board member and tireless supporter of the Maine Hospice Council, serving for numerous years as the chairwoman of the Maine Hospice Council Retreat team.

 

As a Paul Harris Fellow of the Kittery Rotary Club, Dee served her community by providing free meals to the community, working many hours at the monthly Rotary blood drives, and supporting the many club activities for many years. Most recently she served as the club's youth protection officer.

 

Dee valued the many friendships she fostered throughout the years and set a wonderful example to all of just how to be a great friend; no example was clearer than the love she shared with her family. She truly loved being a mom, but adored being "Mimi" to her grandchildren. She gloried in gathering folks together and sitting on the front porch at her camp on First Roach Pond, spending time with her dear friends every month for girls' game night or just hopping in the car for an adventure.

 

She is survived by her girls, Juli, Nikki and Jenny, and their spouses, David, Melissa and Doug, along with her true joys, her grandchildren, Allie, Jackson, Haven, Drew, Abigail and Bella.

 

A celebration of Dee's life will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, in the South Church in Portsmouth, N.H., with a time of refreshment to follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Hospice of York, 16 Hospital Drive, York, ME 03909.

Care for Dee and her family has been entrusted to the J.S. Pelkey Funeral Home.
