Grace Morgan

Farmingdale — Grace R. Morgan, age 73, departed this life Tuesday morning, Sept. 4, 2018, following a brief illness. She was lovingly surrounded by family. Grace began her life Dec. 2, 1944, in San Mateo, Calif., as the daughter of Augustus "Gus" and Phyllis Richards, both of whom predeceased her.

Grace loved learning! She earned her bachelor's degree in education at Indiana University, and later followed her passion of helping others with a master's degree in nursing from the University of Southern Maine.

Her career as an educator spanned more than 20 years at several schools in New England, including the Prescott Memorial School in Washington. She went on to become a school nurse at Rockport Elementary School, and found additional joy in advancing the health education in all Maine schools with the Maine Department of Education.

Grace loved nature, and kayaking around Boothbay was one of her favorite pastimes.

Those fortunate enough to have a "Grace Tour" at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens would be treated to an informative and practical experience as she shared her love for this natural habitat.

Grace is survived by her daughter, Sarah R. Allarie, and husband Steve and their son, Connor, of Winthrop; a cousin, Joan Davis, of Fort Wayne, Ind.; and a host of friends nationwide.

A private celebration of Grace's life will be held at a later date.

Donations in Grace's memory may be made to The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay.

Arrangements are with Plummer Funeral Home, Augusta. Condolences, photos and memories may be shared at plummerfh.com.
