Audrey Farrin Benner, 49, of Nobleboro, passed away unexpectedly on the morning of Dec. 26, 2016 at LincolnHealth – Miles Campus in Damariscotta. Born in Damariscotta on Nov. 20, 1967, she was the daughter of David Farrin and Ellen (Poland) Rice.
Audrey grew up in South Bristol, attended local schools and graduated from Lincoln Academy in 1986. She worked for many years in the seafood industry, was a mail carrier for her hometown of South Bristol, and most recently was employed at the Dollar Tree in Damariscotta.
Audrey was a member of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, and loved helping and visiting people whenever she could. She enjoyed going to Hollywood Slots with her friends, paint night, and enjoyed her music… especially from the 1980s. More than anything, she loved her time with her children, granddaughter, friends and family. A little girl at heart, she touched a lot of people’s lives with her love and laughter.
She is survived by sons, Andrew Corson and wife Nancy of Jefferson, and Trevor Benner of Nobleboro; very special granddaughter, Kaila Mae Corson; former husband and best friend, Wayne Benner of Nobleboro; sisters, Sue Hope of Pemaquid, Carol Prescott of Bath, Roxanne McLain of Pemaquid, and Debbie Reilly and husband William of New Harbor; as well as so many very special friends.
A time of visitation to celebrate Audrey’s life, will be held from 5-7 p.m., Fri., Jan. 6 at the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, 612 Main St., Damariscotta. She will be laid to rest privately in the New Harbor Cemetery in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Audrey’s memory to the charity of your choice.
