POLAND – Marilyn Jeannette Fish, 72, died quietly at home on April 24, after a long courageous battle with lymphoma.

She was born on May 25, 1931, in Brookton, the daughter of John Curtis Lyon Sr. and Beatrice Vena Lilley Lyon. She moved from Brookton to the Lewiston area in 1962, and did a number of things there from waitressing to healthcare. Later she moved to St. Johnsbury, Vt., where she worked in healthcare as a home health associate until medical conditions forced her to retire.

She moved back to Maine, to be closer to her family. She spent the last two years living under the care of her daughter, Darla and son-in-law, William Elliott of Poland.

She is survived by her daughter, Darla Elliott and husband William of Poland; her sons, Scott Hall and wife Joan of Lewiston, Dale Fish and companion Simone Chase of Litchfield, Kevin Fish and wife Stacia of Monmouth; her sisters, Beverly Lugdon and husband Owen of Orono, Jacqueline Testori and husband Scott of Manchester, Conn.; brother, John Lyon Jr. and his wife Sally of Vernon, Conn.; a brother-in-law, James Jones of St. Johnsbury, Vt.; 15 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by both parents; an infant sister, Mary Elaine Lyon of Brookton; a sister, Nadine Jones of St. Johnsbury, Vt.; and a nephew, Stanley Graham of Utah. She will be missed by friends and family.
