As a 74 year member of the Lisbon Falls Baptist Church with a heart for the gospel, youth, and missions she taught Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, and youth groups for many years and served on numerous boards and committees. She had a great love for God and country, family and friends, the ocean, her English Ancestry as a first generation daughter of immigrants, and a deep affection for the Red Sox and Celtics. She enjoyed travel, playing piano, knitting, coloring, and reading. She was predeceased by a brother David Eccles of (Nashua, NH), and by her husband “Woody” in 1994, but survived by her children Sheryl ( Randolph, ME), Robin ( Skowhegan, ME), Brian ( Bowdoin, ME), David ( Yarmouth, ME)and Karen (Bristow, VA), and their spouses and well loved by 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grands. Her kindness, craft projects and quick quirky humor will be missed by all who knew her. She could be a scamp and gatherings with family and friends always resulted in a good deal of laughter. She always wore a smile. The family wishes to thank The Meadows in Greene for providing such a wonderful loving home for Mom these last couple of years, they’re the best.
