Martha I. McKown, 84, of East Boothbay, passed away on March 12, 2019 at Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta.
Martha was born to Frederic and Hazel (Farnham) on April 29, 1934, in the house where she lived for 82 years until moving to Boothbay Green for health reasons.
Martha was a hard worker in gardens and had a gift of making beautiful arrangements of flowers throughout the Boothbay region. She also shared her knowledge of nature, and there wasn’t a wild flower or tree that she couldn’t name. She loved the outdoors and made others realize the beauty around them.
Martha is predeceased by brothers, Frederic McKown Jr., Robert McKown, and David McKown; and sisters, Marilyn Collins, Jeanette Morey, and Barbara Pomerleau.
She leaves behind sisters, Joyce Graffam and Margie Yocum; brother, George; sister-in-law and best friend, Marjorie (Alley) McKown; and many nieces and nephews.
There will be no funeral and a private memorial will be held at a later date.
Arrangements are entrusted to Hall Funeral Home of Boothbay.
