ISLESBORO – Eva K. Pendleton died April 6 2004, at Tall Pines Healthcare Facilities after a long illness. She was born Dec. 15, 1914, in Castine, the daughter of James and Eva (Staples) Kelley. The family moved to Belfast in 1918, where she attended Belfast schools, graduating from Crosby High School in 1933. She married Donald E. Pendleton of Islesboro, and moved to the island in 1933, where she resided for 71 years. Eva was a loving mother and homemaker extrodinaire. She took great pride in creating a comfortable home for her family. She was self taught; making quilts, braiding rugs, upholstering furniture, making curtains and wallpapering. She had an eye for color and form as evidenced in the 200 quilts she fashioned, starting at the age of 15. She could do anything with a piece of cloth. She was happiest being outside; tending her bees, walking her many dog friends, working in the garden and mowing her lawn. She spent many hours in her boat and walking the beach. Eva was a caring and good hearted person, always willing to lend a helping hand. She graciously touched the lives of those around her. Eva joined the Friends of the Library and was instrumental in planning for the new addition. She was a member of the Baptist Sewing circle, one of her favorite places to be, especially because she could tell the ladies to “just do it!” Eva was baptized in the 2nd Baptist Church and was a past deacon. She was also a member of Primrose Chapter No. 152, Order of the Eastern Star and a charter member of the Islesboro Historical Society. She is survived by a son, Donald K. Pendleton and his wife, Diane, of Islesboro; a daughter, Judith P. Coffin and her husband, Jack, of Islesboro; two grandsons, D. Roderick and Edwin Pendleton of Maine and New York City, N.Y.; and several great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Donald E. Pendleton; and four brothers, Harold, Charles, Wendell, and Homer Kelley; and a sister, Katrina Smith. A celebration of her life was held 11 a.m. Saturday, April 10, at the 2nd Baptist Church, Islesboro. A reception will follow in the Fellowship Room. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to the 2nd Baptist Church or to the Friends of the Alice L. Pendleton Library.
