Colette T. Dickey
Colette Therese Dickey, 83, of Camden died Saturday, May 22, 2010, at Penobscot Bay Medical Center. Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on July 23, 1926, she was the daughter of J. George and Lauretta (Bessette) Dickey. Colette was employed with the U.S. State Department for many years. Her career took her to eleven different countries where she worked in U.S. Embassy offices making new friends, learning new cultures and languages.

In 1981, she retired and moved to Bayview Street in Camden where she very much enjoyed watching the harbor activities, identifying and keeping track of the Windjammers and day sailers. Along the waterfront, Colette was known as the "stick lady" as she always used a walking stick. A very outgoing person, Colette made many new friendships along the waterfront talking with tourists, residents, and the boat captains. She had enjoyed being a volunteer teacher at the Maine State Prison and was a communicant of Our Lady of Good Hope Catholic Church in Camden. Colette had hosted foreign students in her home while they were attending the Penobscot School in Rockland. She also liked to dine at various restaurants with her many close friends.

Surviving is her sister, Jacqueline Dickey of Cumberland, RI; three nephews; and several cousins. She was predeceased by her sister, Yolande Dickey and her brother, Russell Dickey.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11 a.m., Thursday, May 27, 2010, at Our Lady of Good Hope Catholic Church in Camden with the Rev. Mark Reinhardt officiating. Interment will be held later in the Notre Dame Cemetery in Pawtucket, RI. If desired, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Our Lady of Good Hope Catholic Church, 7 Union Street, Camden or to Christian Foundation for Children & Aging, 1 Elmwood Ave., Kansas City, KS 66103. Arrangements are with the Long Funeral Home, 9 Mountain Street, Camden, Maine
