Washington — Gwenith Neal Gee passed away March 25, 2021, at the age of 91 at Pen Bay after a period of declining health.

She was born Oct. 19, 1929, in Dexter to Joel Neal and Doris Martin Neal, the youngest child. After graduating from Hartland Academy, class of 1948, she married her high school sweetheart, Thomas B. Gee.

She was a devoted wife, wonderful mother to five sons and adoring grandmother to five grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Gwen and Tom moved to Marblehead, Mass., and raised their young boys. During the 20 years they lived in Marblehead, Gwen enjoyed playing softball with the Women’s Softball League and bowling with the Women’s Bowling League.

Gwen and Tom returned to Maine and operated their own business, Gee’s Egg Farm in Washington for many years. Family and home were the loves of her life, and she took many family photos. Monthly, she made sure to decorate her home for holidays, especially for Christmas with extensive decorations and lots of presents for all to open.

In her retirement, Gwen took pleasure in living on the lake, feeding birds, watching wildlife and the arrival of ducks every spring. She enjoyed watching her grandson, Cale, playing in basketball games and watching many dance recitals of her granddaughter, Curry, and great-granddaughter Avery Wing.

She is survived by sons Timothy Gee of Union, Scott Gee and Julie Sells of Rockport, Douglas Gee and his wife Joy of Washington and Brian Gee of Washington; sister-in-law Kitty Gee, Chesterville; five grandchildren Thomas Gee, Adam and his wife Dawn, Katie Wing, Curry Jo Gee and Cale Gee; five great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was predeceased by her husband Tom Gee; son Randall Gee and daughter-in-law, Cindy Gee; infant brother Harland and three sisters Velma “Binga” Sawyer, Geraldine Plummer and Pauline Stark.
