Patricia A. Pickett, 79, passed away at Woodland Memory Care on July 21, 2014. She is now at peace.
Patricia was born on May 8, 1935 the only child of Stella A. (Dodge) and Varrell B. Alcott.
Patricia worked in various mill jobs throughout the years before being employed at the Stevens Girls School in Hallowell. It was during her time there that she completed her Associates Degree in Criminal Justice which was very important to her. When the Stevens School closed she became a Teacher’s Assistant at the Richmond Middle/High School. Patricia strongly believed in an education, especially the ability to read. Reading was a love for Patricia, she spent hours reading, completing a book in a day was no feat for her.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband, Donald G. Pickett. In 2013 they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They lived in and raised their children in the community of Richmond, Donald’s hometown. In 2004 they moved to Patricia’s hometown of Pittston.
Patricia will be missed by her children, daughter Jill and husband Paul Adams and son Jeffrey and wife Elizabeth Pickett. Her grandchildren, Michael Guiou, Adam Guiou, Jillian and her husband Dan Getchell and Christopher Pickett were all loved and cherished by Patricia and they will miss her deeply.
