Camden — Pauline Freytag MacDonald left us May 21, 2014.

She was born at her family home, The Holmestead Inn in Camden June 30, 1925, to Edith Long Freytag and Henry Paul Freytag.

Polly was married to Francis MacDonald for 46 years and raised six children. They were a devoted couple, always together, enjoying the activities of their children and grandchildren, dancing, running a business, politics and lobstering. Polly was a great sternman for Francis on their boat, the Sadie Brickett. She also worked in local schools for 25 years as a teacher's aide.

Remembering her with love are her six children and their spouses or companions, 12 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren; Ellen and Brad Porter and son Ben; Elaine and Ken Mahar and children Josh, Amy and Reuben; David MacDonald and Deb Bailey, and his daughters Katie and Danessa; Paul and Betsy MacDonald and sons Corey and Mike; Edward MacDonald, Carol Sias and his daughters Melissa and Michelle; Robert MacDonald and his children Nick and Stephanie; her sister Marion Hall and three sister-in-laws; Dorothy Munro, Eleanor MacDonald and Shirley Hamlin; and Polly's companion of 22 years, Clifford Chater.

Polly was a vibrant and gracious lady.

You are invited to join us in celebrating the life of this wonderful mom, grammie and friend on Sunday, June 29, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the American Legion Hall, Camden.

Condolences to Polly's children and extended family. Having spent time in their home during my youth and enjoying "bumping" into her over the years since, I know how much I and many others will miss a Great Lady. I hope she gets to dance her heart out! RIP Polly. Sandra Alley Schramm

Polly was one of the nicest people I've ever know. She looked forward to a hug each time I saw her. SHE WILL ALWAYS BE KNOWN AS  THE SPECIAL LADY FROM CAMDEN. Prayers go out to the family.

I have known Polly and her sister, Marion Hall for over 80 years.  They were both fun to be with and always smiling.  I really miss Polly, as many do. My thought and prayers are with her wonderful family.

Prayes are with all of the MacDonald family. Pauline was always outgoing and never hesitated to help anyone.  She will be truly missed by all that knew her.
