1918 – 2014

AUBURN — Marjorie G. Plummer, 95, passed away peacefully on Friday, Jan. 3, at Schooner Estates in Auburn.

She was born on May 27, 1918, in Lubec, the only child of Mildred (Dodge) and Burris Leeman.

She had many fond memories of childhood adventures growing up in the little fishing village on Passamaquoddy Bay. Marjorie often crossed the Lubec Narrows by boat to Campobello Island to attend picnics and dances. She was also known to climb the Channel Light at low tide.

She graduated from Lubec High School in 1936 and went on to the University of Maine where she met her husband, Philip. Marjorie and Philip moved to Auburn in 1944 where she raised four children, several Irish setters, and taught English and social studies for 30 years at Central Middle School in Auburn.

Marjorie had a great wit and was very social. She enjoyed her monthly dinners with fellow teachers and coffee klatches with her many younger friends.

A lover of the ocean, Marjorie enjoyed summers at the Plummer family home in Addison and her cottage at Sandy River Beach, Jonesport.

 She is survived by her four children, Kendall Plummer and his wife, Linda, of Yarmouth, James Plummer of Gray, Pamela and her husband, James Larouche, of Auburn, and Thomas Plummer of Lewiston. Marjorie is also survived by her five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, Stephen Plummer, his wife, Malanie, and their son, Harrison, of Cumberland, Nathan Plummer, his wife, Shannon, and their daughter, Isabel of New Gloucester, Jennifer Plummer and her husband, David Nardone, and their daughters, Olivia and Ella, of Brookline, Mass., Kristen Olmstead and husband, Dion, their son, Maxwell and daughter, Harper of New Sharon, and Sam Larouche of Auburn.

Marjorie was predeceased by her husband, Philip; and later by her companion of many years, Nathaniel “Sam” Kelley, of Lubec.

The family would like to thank the staff at Schooner Estates Residential Care and Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice for their caring support.
