Ariel Mae Linscott, 92, passed away peacefully April 18, 2013 at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport. She was born Sept. 5, 1920, the daughter of John (Raymond) and Ethel Clark Danforth of Union.

Ariel graduated from Union High School, and after graduation, worked at the Union Sanatorium. She later met, then married, Richard Linscott on Oct. 13, 1945 and they made their home in Burkettville. During these years she worked at the blueberry factory in Union and the Medomak Canning factory in Waldoboro.

She enjoyed her vegetable and flower gardens, canning/freezing her own vegetables, sewing and crafts, and putting puzzles together every night. On Wednesday nights, for many years, she enjoyed supper with her daughters and putting puzzles together. Ariel enjoyed being with her family on any holiday, for any reunion with family, like birthdays and anniversaries, and it was always a time to enjoy. She joined the Seven Tree Grange in Union in 1935, and became a lifetime member of the Medomac Valley Grange in Burkettville.

Ariel enjoyed traveling. She traveled to Washington, D.C. with grange members, to visit the National Grange Headquarters.
