Edna May Morrill, 98
     YARMOUTH -- Edna May Morrill, 98, a lifelong resident of Yarmouth died Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2007.
     She was born on May 7, 1909, in what was then known as Grantville, the daughter of Lucinda (Knight) and William Grant. Grantville was a former fishing village that occupied the east side of the Royal River and it disappeared when Interstate 95 (now 295) was built. Edna was the last resident of Grantville.
     Edna's life revolved around the sea - picking crabs, shucking clams, peeling shrimp, packing sardines or helping her son Richard with his seafood business. She enjoyed cooking, cleaning, jigsaw puzzles, her houseplants and flowers and was as sharp as a tack up to last year when a fall lead to her decline in health. She will be remembered for her sharp wit, sense of humor and generosity. Nothing gave Edna greater pleasure than being visited by members of her family.
     Edna is survived by her sons, Charles Morrill and his wife Ann, Richard Morrill and his wife Gloria, and David Morrill, all of Yarmouth; 15 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her eldest son and his wife, Harry and Elizabeth Morrill; her four sisters and eight brothers.
     Graveside service will be on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 10 a.m., at Riverside Cemetery in Yarmouth with the Rev. David Heald officiating. Arrangements are under the care of Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth.
