His words were “he saw this beautiful blonde standing in front of her grandfather and father’s bakery” and the rest is history. Martha was a loving and sometimes “quirky” mom, grandmom and great-grandmom. Martha was a stay-at-home mom, but was never idle. She enjoyed cooking, knitting, crocheting, playing her piano and accordion and especially playing Bingo with her fellow patients and friends at Bangor City Nursing and Rehab Center. In their younger years, Dad and her loved going for rides, going camping, eating out and playing Yahtzee, Scat, and seeing who could finish the Bangor Daily News crossword puzzles first. Martha was a lifelong member of Tuscan Chapter No. 148, Order of the Eastern Star, the Old Town Riverside Grange No. 273, the Odd Fellows Auxiliary of Rebekahs Lodge No. 35, where she held the offices of warden, chaplain and musician. She also was a former member of the University of Maine Women’s Extension Group an former member of the First Congregational Church, Brewer. She is survived by her children, Judith Turner and her husband, Marlow, of Bangor, Richard Page of Otis, and Shirley Craig and her husband, George Michael, of Brewer, along with her 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, several nieces and their families. She was predeceased by her husband, her parents, in-laws; along with her sister and her husband, Joe and Virginia Ubinger of Pennsylvania; and brother, Frederick Gore of Massachusetts. The family wishes to thank the staff at Bangor City for their care of Mom throughout her stay and especially her last weeks of illness. There will be no visiting hours or services. The family will have a private graveside service in the spring at Pine Grove Cemetery. Those who wish may donate to their favorite charity or to the Bangor City Nursing & Rehab Center, Bangor, in Mrs. Page’s name.
