Marilyn Alice Mahar Rowe, 80
FREEPORT - Marilyn Alice Rowe, 80, of Freeport passed peacefully in her home, on Saturday, June 9, 2018. Born Dec. 31, 1937, in Calais, Marilyn was preceded in death by her loving husband Horace "Phil"; parents, Dale and Mae Mahar; and sister, Janice Owens.
Marilyn graduated high school, fell in love and married Phil. Over the next few years, they became the proud parents of their two sons, Kenneth and William.
Marilyn began her career as an executive secretary with E. E. Taylor Corp., then discovered a passion for travel, while pursuing her career with Prince of Fundy Cruises, culminating with her retirement as a tourism director with Maine Line Tours, in South Portland.
Although Marilyn achieved many professional accomplishments, she will be remembered most by those closest to her for her selflessness, unconditional support and words of encouragement. Her love and devotion to family will remain in the hearts and minds of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Marilyn leaves to cherish her memory, her son, Kenneth Rowe and his wife, Lisa, of Tega Cay, S.C.; son, William Rowe Sr., of Freeport; grandson, William Rowe Jr. and his mother, Annemarie Folan, of Portland; granddaughter, Lindsey Rowe of Little River, S.C.; great- granddaughter, Meadow; brother-in-law, Earle Rowe of Mt.
