1908 – 2004

WEST PARIS – Marguerite E. Perry, 95, of 25 Hartford St., Rumford, died Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Ledgeview Living Center in West Paris.

She was born in Farmington on June 26, 1908 the daughter of Fidele and Pauline (Roderick) Perry.

She attended Rumford schools and was graduated from Stephens High School with highest honors in the class of 1926.

Marguerite was employed as a housekeeper for the Hayes family in Peabody, Mass. until she retired in 1969. At that time she moved back to Rumford where she resided with her sister Barbara and family. She was actively involved in the Robert Shand VFW Post 1641, Ladies Auxiliary where she held numerous positions, including Chaplain, Historian and Past District President.

She never had any children of her own, but was ‘Mother’ to many. She dedicated her life to all of her nieces, and nephews. She was more than a special aunt, she was an integral part of their life, and who they are today. As they grew and had children and their children had children, she remained a constant source of love, knowledge, strength and stability. She held the hearts of all of them throughout her long life. Although her stature was small, her presence was large. And she made the best crepes ever!

Surviving is her brother Thomas Perry of Florida, Peggy Robin Vaughn, Pauline Robin Burns, Peter Robin, Patricia Robin Taylor, Pamela Robin Thames, Perri Lynne Robin, their families and numerous other nieces and nephews.

A special thank you to the nurses and staff of Ledgeview Living Center.
