Julie S. Sellick, 76, died Saturday, September 9, 2017, at the Gorham House. Born April 4, 1941, in Portland, she was the daughter of Albert and Charlena (Emery) Sinclair.

Julie grew up in South Portland and was a 1959 graduate of South Portland High School and attended Westbrook College. She had a strong work ethic and enjoyed employment with Southworth Machine Co., Shaw’s Supermarkets, and retired from the Human Resources department at Nichols Portland in 2003.

One of Julie’s passions was her church community. She was a former member and Deacon at the Woodfords Congregational Church of Portland. More recently she was an active member of the First Parish Church of Gorham. Julie also had a passion for volunteering. She was a member of, and served on the board for the Singles Network, Gorham Food Pantry, Cancer Community Center and her granddaughter’s school. 

Julie enjoyed many hobbies.  She liked going to the gym, walking her poodle Spencer, playing cards with the “girls”, and traveling. Some of her favorite destinations included European river cruising, Alaska, the Colorado Rockies, the Caribbean, Canada, St. Simons Island, and Bermuda.

Julie is survived by her children, Stephen E. Sellick and his husband Alan J. Kick of Falls Church, Virginia, and Rhonda L. Dolley and her husband Jason of Gorham.  She is also survived by the joy of her life, granddaughter Alyssa Lee Dolley, several special cousins and friends, and her beloved Spencer.

A memorial service will be held at 5:00 pm Tuesday, September 12th, at the Blais & Hay Funeral Home  35 Church Street, Westbrook. An hour of visitation will be held prior to the service.

To Julie's Family & Spencer,

We live in Florida and my daughter sent me the news regarding Julie. I am so shocked. We were friends since the 7th grade. She was one of my bridesmaids as well. Phil and I have lived out of town and out of the State most of time so Julie and I did lose contact. She was a dedicated and sincere friend and would do anything to help another. Another angel has been born.

I want to extend my sympathy on your loss. I met Julie 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her during our stay at DFC. I hope that sweet memories of her comfort you in the days ahead.

To the family of Julie: I am so very sorry for your loss. Julie was a quiet and pleasant lady, who I met years ago at an organization in Portland.
We would still meet up every summer (our group) at one of the members group at a lake.
I will say a prayer for your family; Julie will be missed very much.
