York, Maine - Michele A. Sorge, 65, passed away on Thursday, March 9, 2023 surrounded by her family after fighting a long battle with her health over the past few months. Her beautiful soul was born March 1, 1958 in Hoboken, NJ and grew up spending her childhood summers vacationing with her family in York, ME where she eventually moved and started a family of her own. Her one true love and purpose in life was always her family, especially her daughters and grandchildren. She will always be remembered as a loving and devoted mother, not just to her own children, but to all those that she welcomed into her home and took under her wing. She was known to always be there with an open ear and heart, and a full pitcher of iced tea. Michele had overcome many obstacles in her life and was a proud cancer survivor, and through it all always had a smile and unforgettable laugh.
Michele loved walks on the beach and cozying up with her dog, Daisybelle. She found joy in collecting heart shaped rocks, a good book, spending time outdoors, sewing, quilting, and a good cup of coffee. Michele was always a free spirit and marched to the beat of her own drum, getting her first tattoo on her 50th birthday and then a motorcycle license when she was 55, because why not! Michele was also always an animal lover, her favorite being a wolf. On her facebook page she shared “The Code of the Wolf” which her family feels resonates perfectly with how she lived her life:
Protect your family
Honor the elders
Teach the young
Be loyal to your friends
Voice your opinion
Stand your ground
Take charge when others show weakness
Play when you can
Work when you must
Always leave your mark
Michele recently celebrated her 65th birthday while in the hospital, and was very grateful at the outpouring of love and support she received. There were so many kind words, positive thoughts, cards, and gifts shared with her which truly brightened her day and made her feel loved. It was so special that she was able to see the impact she had on those around her.
Michele leaves behind her parents, Arthur and Ann Sorge, three daughters (and sons), Ashley Camire and her husband Clayton, Brittany McLin and her husband Tom, and Emily Stevens and her husband Jared; two sisters, Dina DellaPasqua and her husband Rick of York, ME and Elyse Kehl and her husband Chris of Kittery Point, ME; two grandchildren who are the light of her life, Coen and Iyla Camire; and four nieces and nephews Dillon, Nicole, Daniel and Celia.
Calling hours for family and friends will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 pm on Thursday, March 16th at the Lucas & Eaton Funeral Home, located at 91 Long Sands Rd., York, Maine. A short closing ceremony will be held to conclude the calling hours at 4:30pm which will then be followed by a celebration of her beautiful life at the Ship’s Cellar Pub at York Harbor Inn.
