Karen Gray Obituary, Death – Gray, who was 77 years old and the widow of Hope citizen Terance P. Gray, passed away at her home on October 17th, 2022. She was a resident of Hope. Prior to her departure, she had been in deteriorating health for a number of months until she finally passed away. Her birth took place on March 9, 1945, in Camden, and her parents were Carl and Priscilla D. (Alley) Smith. Her name at birth was Priscilla Smith. She was the child that they had. Her mother used to go by Alley before she got married and changed her name.
She attended school in Camden, and on November 20th, 1969, she wed Terance P. Gray in Dedham, Massachusetts. She afterwards moved to Massachusetts. The union was solemnized in the land of the free and home of the brave. After working for a while at Schoolhouse Togs in Rockport, Karen put in a considerable amount of time at the meat department of the Camden IGA. Schoolhouse Togs was located in Camden. Camden is the location of the store known as Schoolhouse Togs.
In addition to all of those other accomplishments and responsibilities, she was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. One of Karen’s favorite things to do when she was younger was to compete in the drag racing competitions that were conducted at the Winterport race track. During that time period, her preferred automobile was a Pontiac GTO, and she made frequent trips to the state of Washington to visit her aunt and uncle.
Another one of her all-time favorite activities was going on vacation. Knitting, doing crossword puzzles, and cooking were just a few of the activities that brought Karen pleasure in her latter years, when she had more time on her hands. Nevertheless, her absolute favorite thing in the entire world was to spend time with her grandchildren and to collaborate with them on the preparation of delicious sweets, such as ice cream sundaes and chocolate chip pancakes.
This was without a doubt her most treasured form of leisure time entertainment. Her husband, Terance, of Hope; her three children, James A. Munroe, Jr. and his wife Brenda of Rockport, Robyn French and her partner Daniel Eaton of Deer Isle, and Stephanie Gray and her partner Douglas Hall of Warren; her three grandchildren, Kayla Munroe, Kaitlyn Heanssler, and Joshua French; her sister, Sandra Schramm of Rockland; one great-grandchild; and her sister-in-law are among those who are left behind And a very remarkable relative by the name of Ann Marriner who, as Karen’s health declined, selflessly devoted her time to assisting her and making things easier for her.
