Wait a minute. This is our Mom, let us tell you about our Mom. So, let's take notice: First, she was a great mom of five children. She took care of us, trained us and made us into what we are today. Can you imagine what it would be like to have five kids within seven years of marriage, and then helped raise a grandchild for 10 more years when her children have grown. Yes, we kept checking in on her occasionally for her sanity, yup, she was all there each time.
Mom was happiest being at home spending time with her family and friends. She enjoyed playing beano on Saturday nights, playing the piano, and the organ and making puzzles. Sewing, knitting, making sweaters, winter clothes all for us kids growing up. Her favorite past time was going out to sea fishing with Dad and Don on the "BB Sue". She did have various parttime jobs through the years. But she enjoyed mostly working at Capt'n Newick's Restaurant in South Portland at the time. Really enjoying the people, she had worked with there. Mom for years worked with Cape Elizabeth Boosters and South Portland Booster helping support their ball teams. She was a true New England sports fan loving the Red Sox, Celtics and the Patriots.
At Moms request there will be no services, nor celebration of life. Mom's ashes will be joining Dad and Sister Beverly sometime later this summer. For those of you who knew Mom, look up and smile because she loved all of you!
Our Thanks to the People at The Gosnell House in Scarborough, A wonderful staff, so kind and caring.
