Dora Jean (Miller) Queior died on Sunday August 5, 2012 at the Cedars in Portland, Maine. Born on March 9, 1926 in Watertown, NY, she was the daughter of the late Marshall M. and Agnes L. (Nicol) Miller. After graduating from Watertown High School in 1944, she was employed as an operator for the New York Telephone Company. During World War II she worked at the telephone exchange on both the (now) Fort Drum Army Base near Watertown and the Sampson Naval Training Base in Geneva, NY. One of her main early life activities, and truly a labor of love, was raising three boys. She and her husband moved to East Boothbay, Maine in October 2000 and then to the Brunswick/Topsham area in April of 2001.
On August 18, 1945 she married Joseph W. Queior of Watertown, NY in the Holy Family Church with the Rev. Brunet officiating. This was a blessed match as they were to celebrate 67 years of marriage this year. She is survived by her husband, three sons and their wives, David J. and Linda Queior of Arundel, Maryland, Daniel P. and Meg Queior of Cumberland, Maine and Stephen M. Queior and Kathleen Bontrager of Sarasota, Florida; also surviving are seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A cousin Anna Allen of Watertown, NY also survives.
Dora Jean's interests included caring for others, reading, listing to music, watching plays and collecting weather data.
A mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church on McKeen Street in Brunswick, ME at 10:00 am Friday August 10th. There are no calling hours. In memory of her full and generous life, charitable donations may be made to research on Parkinsons Disease (that her husband Joe has).
