Marjorie Estelle Whittier


AUBURN — Marjorie Estelle Whittier, 84, a longtime resident of Monmouth, died Monday, Feb. 13, at Clover Manor, where she resided for the last four years.

She was born in Kingfield, Dec. 10, 1927, the daughter of the late Raymond and Dorothy (Crocker) Allen.

She was educated in the grammar school in Kingfield and was a 1945 graduate of Kingfield High School.

On June 29, 1973, Marjorie married Herbert S. Whittier in Monmouth.

Marjorie was a homemaker for most of her life, but also worked at Monmouth Market, Leeds Clothing Center, Hathaway Cider Mill, and was known for her fabulous pies she made for Granny’s Kitchen of Monmouth. She had also worked for the town of Monmouth for years as an election poll clerk, where she thoroughly enjoyed greeting the voters.

Marjorie had many hobbies and interests, some of which included flower and vegetable gardening, especially when it came to canning and freezing her fruits and vegetables. She also enjoyed bird watching, playing cards and beano, to name a few, and was a member of AARP.

Of all her interests in life, the most important love, by far, was that of being a very devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, having lovingly knit many pairs of mittens for her all of her family.

She is survived by her devoted husband of 38 years, Herb Whittier of Monmouth; three daughters, Mrs. Susan J. Webster and husband, Ralph, of Wales, Mrs. Bonnie L. Johnson and husband, Ronald, of Greene and Mrs. Pam V. Frank and husband, Royal, of Poland; one son, Alan N. Walker and wife, Claire, of Monmouth; a sister, Ms. Marilyn Oliver of Kingfield; along with six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

Marjorie was predeceased by a son, Dennis Walker (1968); a granddaughter, Stephanie Raye Webster (2011); and a sister, Mrs. Lois Gould.

Marjorie’s family would like to graciously thank all the staff of both Clover Manor and Androscoggin Home Care and Hospice for the wonderful care and support given to Marjorie and her family over the last four years.
