Agnes (Dolliver) Carr


Agnes (Dolliver) Carr, 82, died April 10, 2019, at a Bangor hospital. She was born in Southwest Harbor, Dec. 31, 1936, daughter of Carl Fulton and Elene (Hamblen)Dolliver.

Agnes graduated second in her class from Pemetic High School, Southwest Harbor, in 1955. She began her workplace career as secretary in the law office of Silsby & Silsby, Ellsworth. During this time she met the love of her life, Richard “Sam” Carr. They were married Sept. 1, 1956, and settled in Ellsworth. Later she was employed in the Hancock County Probate Court and after 30 years she retired as deputy register of probate. She thoroughly enjoyed both workplace positions and was extremely proud of her career in law.

She was an active member of the community. She was a lifetime member of the Republican Party and on election years she could be observed erecting and removing political signs; she enjoyed campaigns very much. She was a member of the Ellsworth Business and Professional Women’s Club, the Hancock County Genealogical Society, the Ellsworth Historical Society and the Southwest Harbor Historical Society.

Agnes’s passions included crossword puzzles, reading, quilting, cooking, gardening, summers at George’s Pond and researching the Dolliver and Carr lines of descent. Her greatest love and pride was her family; her husband “Sam” and their two children, Pamela and Thomas. Many memories were made and will be treasured of trips, Little League games, Scouts and band that took place over the years.

She is survived by her two children, Pamela (Carr) Browne of Virginia Beach, Va., and Thomas Carr and wife, Susan, of Standish; her grandson, Ryan Hesler and wife, Kira, of Memphis, Tenn.; granddaughter, Sarah Hesler of Virginia Beach, Va.; sister, Louise (Dolliver) Smith of Middletown, R.I., and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents; husband “Sam” of 61 years; brothers, Raymond and Roscoe Dolliver.

At the request of the deceased, there will be no services. Private interment will take place at Woodbine Cemetery, Ellsworth.
