Edna Boynton Creamer, of Waldoboro, passed away peacefully on Aug. 18, 2022, in Damariscotta. She was born in 1925 to Frank and Margaret Mulcahy Boynton in Cranston, R.I. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.
Raised in New Harbor, Edna moved to Damariscotta after high school, working as a switchboard operator. In 1949 she married Russell Creamer.
