PORTLAND – Marjorie Hulbert Stevens of The Woods at Canco, passed away Oct. 27, 2004, after a courageous 20-month battle with melanoma. Born on Feb. 10, 1917, on Cranberry Isles, Marjorie was the eldest child of Charles and Vincie Bunker Hulbert. She was a graduate of Patten Academy and Castine Normal School. Marjorie taught school in Lincoln where she met her future husband, Joseph Stevens. They were married on June 11, 1939. Marge and Joe had a very loving and happy 63-year marriage. They raised their children in Portland’s Deering Village and at their camp on Little Sebago Lake. In later years, Marge and her husband enjoyed traveling and eventually purchased a home in St. Cloud, Fla., where they spent many winters. But it was the simple life of their camp on Shin Pond that brought Marge the greatest joy. It was here that she passed on her love and appreciation of the Maine woods to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marge was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed playing bridge, spring fishing, bird hunting, and most of all she enjoyed entertaining family and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Joseph in 2003, and by three brothers, Alexander, Charles Jr. and Wayne Hulbert. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Patricia Stevens of South Portland; her daughter and son-in-law, Brenda and Kenneth Jordan of Windham; five grandchildren, Deborah Temm, Elisabeth Miller and Susan Giesecke, all of South Portland, Thomas Jordan of Provo, Utah, and Tammie Randall of Standish; 14 great-grandchildren; her sister, Arlene Smith of Westwood, Mass.; several nieces and nephews, and many cherished friends including Patricia Youman, with whom she shared her home for the past year. At her request there will be no visiting hours. Services will be private. Arrangements by Jones, Rich & Hutchins Funeral Home in Portland. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Maine Cancer Foundation, 970 Baxter Blvd., Portland, ME 04103.
