Della B. Carroll, 86, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on August 10, 2018. She was born in Whitneyville, Maine the daughter of Colby and Vivian (Hasty) Bridges. Della attended Beal College in Bangor and Lamson College in Phoenix, AZ.  She served as Whitneyville town clerk, as secretary at the Registry of Deeds, and the Veteran’s Administration in Machias. She moved to Phoenix, AZ in 1977 where she continued to work as a secretary for the Arizona Department of Health. She returned to Whitneyville in 1985, where she lived for several years and then moved to Roe Village in Hampden. After her vision took a turn for the worse, she moved to Changing Tides Assisted Living in Harrington where she received wonderful care from Tara Skeate and her wonderful staff members, Michelle, Tammy, Stephanie, and Cindy, as well as the staff at Hospice.
Della enjoyed seeing seedlings sprout into plants both in AZ and ME. She was an avid reader and most recently was an enthusiastic user of the Talking Books program from the Maine State Library. Her most treasured moments were spending time with her family.
