The Daily Me


Joyce E. (Connors) Donovan, age 63 of Corinth, Maine, passed away unexpectedly in her sleep Saturday, October 23, 2010. Of those who depart this world, few may justly call themselves hero. True to the title, Joyce's character was measured by her unparalleled generosity, zeal for life and compassion for others.

Known to many as an “Everyday Angel”, she touched many lives with her exuberance, companionship and witty, off-the-hip comedy. Against perpetually insurmountable odds, she relentlessly persevered. Her tremendous ingenuity, a best-kept secret, enabled her to thrive in turmoil, giving her the wisdom to truly know and appreciate joy. History will mark her venerable strength of resolve and fervent display of courage as legendary.

Honorably survived by: mother, Leila Connors Lowell; husband, Frederick Donovan; sisters Judith Round and Martha Anderson; five children, Michelle Dustin, Mark and Michael Mckee, Zachary and Christine Duren; one grandson, Connor McKee. In addition she is survived by her 3 step children Paula Donovan, Dianne Bradley and Donna McClay and 6 step grandchildren, Paul Williams and Kristina Williams, Willow Rose Bradley, Keith, Brandin and Britney McClay. A step great granddaughter Alexandria Rose Williams was born on 10/26/10.

Contributions in Joyce's memory may be made to the American Heart Association.

Friends and family are invited to a gathering at Joyce's family home at 98 Mill Street, Orono, from 1 – 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 30th to share memories and stories of Joyce's life.

Interment will be held in the spring.
