Elizabeth Chicoine Eldridge, 93, of Boothbay, formerly of Newark, Del., passed away peacefully at her home on April 6. At her bedside were her children, Phoebe A. Eldridge of Newark, Del., Matthew V. Eldridge of Boothbay, Elizabeth Po-Yan Eldridge of Canton, Ohio, and Jonathan O. Eldridge of Brattleboro, Vt.
Elizabeth was predeceased by her loving husband, John E. Eldridge; sisters, Ruth Walsh and Faith Gagnier; and brother, David Chicoine.
Elizabeth enjoyed a lifetime love of teaching and bringing the joy of reading to children. She was also very active in her church, civil rights issues, and let’s not forget her love of singing.
