Marilyn Jean Maxcy Levensaler, 81, passed away peacefully on Saturday March 1, 2013, after a long illness, with her loving family at her side.

She was born Feb. 19, 1932 in Thomaston. The daughter of the late Earle and Ruth Lermond Maxcy, she grew up in Thomaston and attended local schools. In her junior and senior year she was selected to participate in the student legislature convention. She was a graduate of Thomaston High School class of 1950.

After high school she worked at GTE Sylvania in Waldoboro until she met and married Cedric in 1958. The two have lived in North Yarmouth for over 40 years. She was a former member of the Eastern Star with the Ivy lodge in Thomaston as well as a member of the Thomaston Grange.

A lover of camping, knitting and doing ceramics, she also loved to travel. She and Cedric traveled often to Florida in the winter months, ships reunions and Kentucky to visit family. She also enjoyed music and singing and could often be found playing her keyboard and signing along. Marilyn’s beloved granddaughters have fond memories of “Nanny’s” kitchen, learning to bake whoopie pies and decorating Christmas cookies.

She will be remembered for her sense of humor, a trait that friends and family knew well. She had a deep and distinctive voice, even if you could not see where it was coming from you knew immediately who it was. Marilyn was a great story teller and could easily turn a phrase. She also enjoyed writing poetry.

A special individual who touched many people, she will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt, special thank you to the staffs of Brentwood Nursing Center and Hospice of Maine for all of the love and compassion they showed in caring for Marilyn.

Predeceased by her brothers Earle Macxy Jr., Harlan Maxcy and Robert Maxcy; she is survived by her loving husband Cedric Levensaler of North Yarmouth; sons Timothy Leonard of Westbrook, Jeffrey Levensaler of Arlington, Va.; daughter Rhonda Murphy and her husband Michael of Burlington, Ky.; granddaughters Molly Ahlman and Meghan Murphy of Burlington, Ky.
