BAR HARBOR – Irene Hill Marinke, 82, died peacefully on June 25, 2004, at Mount Desert Island Hospital. Born Feb. 21, 1922, Irene Leland Hill in Bar Harbor, she was the daughter of Walters G. and Sylvia Leland Hill. She graduated from Bar Harbor High School and Emerson College, where she majored in theater, and taught at Westbrook Junior College near Portland. It was at Summer Stock in Boothbay Harbor where she met a dashing young Naval Officer, Commander Charles A. Marinke. They fell in love but would have to wait five years to wed because of World War II. She was married in March, 1946, started a family and traveled where the Navy sent her husband. After Charles retired in 1967, she was finally able to return to her beloved Bar Harbor. Irene was active in many local organizations, including the Congregational Church, Literary Club, Hospital Auxiliary, Jesup Library and Bar Harbor Historical Society. She was a voracious reader and longtime crossword puzzle solver. She was also very interested in Old Bar Harbor and its, (as well as her own) genealogy. One of her special talents was performing monologues and original readings, mostly humorous, to local organizations and groups. She is survived by Charles, her husband of 58 years as well as her daughter, the Rev. Charlene S. Alling; and son, Tom Marinke, both of Bar Harbor. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, June 28, at the Bar Harbor Congregational Church with the Rev. Dr. Sandra Reed officiating. Interment will follow immediately at Ledgelawn Cemetery and then a brief reception back at the church.
