Obituary: Dolores C. (Quirion) Cryan
WATERVILLE – Dolores C. (Quirion) Cryan, 83, died on April 29, 2022, surrounded by her family after a brief illness.
She was born on December 12, 1938, daughter of Albert and Leda (Talbot) Quirion. She was educated at Winslow Public Schools and Mount Merici Academy and spent her life in Winslow, North Vassalboro and on Moxie Lake in the Forks Plantation. She was a member of St. John the Baptist Church in Winslow. Dolores was also a member of snowmobile and ATV clubs in the Moxie Lake area.
Dolores married Robert F. Cryan, Sr. on September 7, 1964, and they shared over 57 wonderful years. Dolores worked at Thayer Hospital and in local woolen mills. She retired from Oak Grove Nursing Home at the age of 62.
Dolores spent as much time as she could with her husband, children, grandchildren, extended family and friends at her cottage on Moxie Lake where she was happiest. She enjoyed boating, fishing, snowmobiling, mountain biking and playing cards. She also liked to travel, dine out, and take an “occasional” nap. Delores adored her grandchildren, loved to love them and never missed an opportunity to tell them how much she loved them. She was the centerpiece of the family where her love and generosity knew no bounds.
She is survived by her two children, Robert F. Cryan, Jr. and his wife, Brianna, and their two children Nicholas R. and Eliana M. Cryan of Oviedo, Fla.; and her daughter, Kimberly A. (Cryan) Vicnaire and her husband Brent, and their two sons, Cameron P. and Brady R. Vicnaire of Waterville, girlfriend Kylee Hamm of Fairfield. She is also survived by her brother, Roger Quirion and his wife Debbie as well as her sisters-in-law Lorraine Quirion and Doris Quirion, all of Winslow; and many loving nephews and nieces and cousins.
Dolores was predeceased by her husband Robert; by his parents Albert and Leda (Talbot) Quirion; by three sisters, Lorraine Morey and her husband Ted Morey, Gloria Quirion, and Pauline Carrier and her husband Robert Carrier, as well as three brothers, Ronald Quirion, Raymond Quirion and his wife Enid Quirion, and Robert Quirion.
There will be no visiting hours. A funeral service will be held at a later date at the Veterans Cemetery in Augusta, at which time Dolores will be buried with her husband, Robert.
Arrangements are under the direction and care of Dan and Scott’s Cremation, 445 Waterville Rd., Skowhegan, ME 04976.
