Waldoboro — Starla M. (Anderson) Hendron, 55, died unexpectedly March 8, 2017, at Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta. She was the loving wife of George E. Hendron, with whom she shared 15 years of marriage.

She was born Feb. 9, 1962, in Rockland, the daughter of Walter A. Anderson and Nancy E. (Eugley) Smith. She was a graduate of Georges Valley High School in Thomaston and also received her Certified Nursing Assistant certificate from Region 8 Vocational School and had worked for the Homestead in Owls Head.

Starla was employed most recently at Bowden Egg Farm as a delivery driver for the past five years and had worked as a custodian for the Miller School and for North End Composites. She also spent time in the shipping and receiving department at Van Baalen’s in Rockland and enjoyed her job cooking at the former Brown Bag Restaurant.

She was the devoted owner of three dogs, Tyson, Roxie and Axel, and two cats, Clyde and Chester. Her pets loved her as much as she loved them. Starla was a good cook and enjoyed sharing what she made with her friends and family. Her generous spirit carried through to many areas of her life. Whether it was helping a friend in need or people she barely knew or a stray animal, it was a constant theme in her life. Spending time with her 4-year-old granddaughter, Mylee, was above all one of her favorite and most cherished things to do.

She is survived by her husband, George E. Hendron, of Waldoboro; mother Nancy E. Smith and father Walter A. Anderson, both of Thomaston; son Peter Z. Anderson and companion Samantha Stanley of Camden; stepsons George Hendron, Greg Hendron and Andrew Hendron; sisters April E. Burch and husband Joseph of Owls Head, Heidi S. DeCourcey of Scarborough; and half-brothers Bradley Anderson and Matthew Anderson; grandchildren Gavin Anderson and Mylee Anderson; step-grandson Stephen Sanford; sisters-in-law Dorothy Benner, Christine Starrett, Tina Sanborn and Essie Sanborn; as well as a brother-in-law, Will Hendron. She is also survived by nephews Gentry O. Burch of Dover, N.H., McCabe W. Burch of Owls Head; and niece Hannah R. DeCourcey of Portland; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A graveside service will be held for Starla in the spring, date and time to be published later.
