Margaret Ray Eddy
Camden — On Feb. 18, Margaret "Maggie" Eddy, 92, died peacefully at Quarry Hill surrounded by family members.
She is survived by her husband of 70 years, Walter, her three sons, Philip, Michael, and Andrew, daughters-in-law Cheri and Penny, five grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, raised in New York, she married Walter, a Marine Corps officer, in 1942. They spent many years raising their three sons as they traveled the country as a military family living in Washington, D.C., California, North Carolina, Hawaii, and Virginia before retirement brought them to Maine in 1967. They lived in Tenants Harbor for many years where family and friends enjoyed their beautiful home and hospitality.
Never one to sit on the sidelines, Maggie quickly became involved in the local library, worked for several years at Pen Bay Medical Center and became an active member at St. John's Episcopal Church in Thomaston among many other community activities. Eventually Maggie and Walt made the move to Thomaston to be closer to church and friends and spent many happy years on Gleason Street before their final move to Quarry Hill in Camden.
Maggie will be remembered by her family for her unconditional love, her giving spirit and her strong faith. She will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known her.
The family would like any donations made in Maggie's honor to go to Knox County Meals on Wheels, 39 Summer St., Rockland, ME 04841. Online condolences may be offered at ripostafh.com.
