Obituary

Bangor - Jean Ann (McDonald) Paschal, 83, passed away at home on January 5, 2021, exactly where she wanted to be, surrounded by her loving family. Jean had dealt with an almost life long illness which later in life caused her mobility as well as visual disabilities. She was born in Bangor on October 30, 1937, the daughter of Grace (Fournier) and Charles "Mike" McDonald. Jean graduated from John Bapst High School in 1956.

She married her high school sweetheart, Edmond M. Paschal in 1958. Together they had three children and spent the next twenty years traveling as a close-knit Air Force family. After their retirement from the military, they returned to Bangor to live out the remainder of their lives. Jean has always had a strong Catholic faith and an unparalleled devotion to her family, often stating her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the joys of her life. Music, cooking, baking and ceramics were a few of the hobbies she appreciated.

Jean had many jobs throughout her life and travels. Early on working for Webber Oil and after returning to Bangor in 1978 she worked for The Picture and Gift Shop and Saint Joseph's Hospital. Jean retired from Saint Joseph's Hospital in 2013 at the age of 76, when her medical disabilities prevented her from working. She had been the Department Head of the Switchboard and worked for Saint Joseph's Hospital for over 30 years. She often felt that her Saint Joseph's "family" was an extension of her own.
Jean was predeceased by her parents, her best friend and husband, Edmond; as well as many extended family members.

She is survived by her sister, Sally McDonald; her children, Kim Numrych and her husband, Bob, of Bangor; Sue Curtis and her husband, Scott, of Old Town and her son, Wayne Paschal of Bangor. She was a wonderful grandmother to her seven grandchildren, Ryan, Erika, Matt, Kelsey, Brandon, Shannon, and Remay. She also felt truly blessed to know her five great grandchildren; Peyton, Nicole, Bailey Noah, and Curtis Edmond. She is also survived by special nieces, Lauri and Kelly. She was also predeceased and survived by many members of the Paschal Family.

The family wishes to express their special thanks to Dr. Christopher Ritter and his staff members, Mickey and Allison. The Maine Veterans Home who cared for her so gently throughout the last year of her life. We feel grateful to Saint Joseph's Homecare and Hospice who assisted us in bringing her home for the last few months of her life. Their wise and experienced care have supported us all in her final weeks. Jean passed peacefully and without pain, reinforcing in her last days, "I’ve had a good life!"

A graveside service will be held at the Mt. Pleasant Catholic Cemetery, Bangor, later in the spring.
