CAMDEN — Georgia A. Chapin, 93, fought a good fight and finished her course on earth on Sept. 21, 2022, where she peacefully joined her Lord and Savior, with family by her side, at the Sussman House in Rockport.

Georgia was born on Feb. 7, 1929, in Camden to the late Burnside and Hattie Demmons Richards. She married Lewis Harriman of Burlington, Maine, on Aug. 28, 1944. Lewis sadly passed away along with their son Richard in a boating accident on Nicatous Lake. Georgia then married George T. Chapin of Camden on Nov. 15, 1957, and together they made their home and raised their family in Camden.

Georgia was a loving wife, mother, and friend to everyone she knew.  She devoted her life to raising her family and selflessly put everyone’s wants and needs before her own. Her smile and singing always filled the home and the smell of her homemade baking filled the air. Very rarely did anyone leave without a hug. The words “Thank you, Jesus” were always on her lips in everything she did. She will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

She was predeceased by her parents; first husband Lewis; sons Richard Harriman and an infant son; her husband George, her sisters, Winola and Florence; her brothers, Clifton, Calvin, Norman, Albert, Raymond, Kenneth and Freddie; and her daughters-in-law Leone Harriman and Patsy Chapin.

Georgia is survived by sons Kevin and wife Dawn Chapin of Hope, Tom and wife Jill Harriman of Warren and Fred and wife Laureen Harriman of Hartland; stepson George Chapin Jr. of Vermont; sister-in-law Judy Richards; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews; and a very special friend, Blaikie Hines, whom she thought of as a son. Thank you for always being there for her, her extended church family and friends.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 1 p.m. at Oakhill Cemetery in Camden, with Pastor David English officiating.
