BANGOR – BANGOR – On Aug. 10, 2012, our mom, Marjory Crane, went to be with our dad, Lester. Mom was born April 13, 1928, at home in Linneus, to Charles and Kathlyn Marjory Jellison.
She lived in various parts of Maine and New Hampshire, and enjoyed a winter in Dothan, Ala., during her youth.
Mom was predeceased by her son-in-law, Pete Martelle. She leaves her children, Jeanette Martelle, David Crane and wife, Kathy, and Margaret Ferris and husband, Bill. She was a devoted grandmother to Rick Martelle, Jen Bridges, Tracie Crane and Kim Crane. Her happiness and devotion was extended to her great-grandchildren, Stephanie Bridges, Tiffanie Bridges, Elizabeth Martelle, Adam Martelle, Tyler Moon and Jenna Moon. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews. As mom’s family we extend our most heartfelt gratitude to the entire staff at Engle Place, at Ross Manor, who gave Mom such exceptionally loving care during the last year of her life. We also add thanks to the Beacon Hospice ladies who gently and lovingly helped Mom find her way home. Thank you all.
There will be a private graveside ceremony for her family at a later date.
