Joyce A. Dimick, 77
SCARBOROUGH - Joyce A. Dimick, 77, died on Friday, April 6, 2018, at Maine Medical Cen-ter, surrounded by her family.
Joyce was born on Aug. 27, 1940, in Portland, the daughter of the late Patrick M. and Marion G. (Kane) Connolly. She grew up in Portland and attended parochial schools, a graduate of Cathedral High School, class of 1958.
When Joyce was 18 years old, she went on a double date with Robert "Bob" Dimick. Little did she know they would share 59 wonderful years together. They married on June 17, 1962, at St. Dominic's Church in Portland. They began their married life in Albany, Ga., where Bob served in the Air Force and they had their first child. The couple later lived in Cleveland, Ohio; Moorestown, N.J.; and Portland, adding one more child to their clan in each state. In 1972, the family settled at Higgins Beach, in Scarborough, where Joyce had summered as a child. For 46 years, Joyce and her family made Higgins Beach the centerpiece of their lives.
Joyce devoted herself to family and friends. She was involved in every aspect of her children's and grandchildren's lives, especially their never-ending sporting events and activities. As for her social life, Joyce enjoyed laughing with her sisters and frequent escapes with her cherished lifelong friends, "The Bridge Ladies." They entertained themselves with festivities beyond mere card playing, such as trips to Broadway shows and swimsuit calendar photo shoots. During her rare, free time, Joyce loved reading (especially history), going to the movies, and watching her beloved Red Sox and Patriots (in her lucky Troy Brown jersey).
Achievements from Joyce's bucket list include her trip to Ireland, witnessing the Patriots' 2004 Super Bowl victory over Dick Hamilton's Philadelphia Eagles and being at Fenway Park for the Red Sox's historic ALCS comeback over the New York Yankees.
Joyce was predeceased by her brothers-in law, Jack McDonough and James Dimick. She is survived by her husband, Robert "Bob" Dimick, of Scarborough; two sisters, Patricia McDonough of Portland and Dorothy Young of South Portland (and husband Donald); three daughters, Kelly Dimick-Reid, of Scarborough; Julie Dimick-Corbeau and her husband, Stephen, of Scarborough; and Jacqueline Dimick-Rogers, of Yarmouth; a son, Patrick Dimick, of Fairfield, Conn.; six grandchildren, Justin Reid, Joseph Corbeau, Kane Corbeau, Caroline Corbeau, and Lara and Sean Dimick; her Kane cousins; and her many beloved nieces and nephews.
