Harmon, Jeanette Morse - Cherryfield  
CHERRYFIELD - Jeanette Morse Harmon, 94, passed away quietly February 9, 2016, in Sanford. She was born in Cherryfield, December 5, 1921, the daughter of Guy R. and Lola F. (Worcester) Grant. Jeanette graduated from Cherryfield Academy, where she was the valedictorian. She went on to Husson College, Bangor, and returned to Cherryfield to work for the Superintendent of Schools. She then worked for many years for Charles Steward (Stewart's Blueberry Company) as a bookkeeper/secretary. She sat at her desk where she was seen every work day in the picture window on Main Street. Later she worked again for the Superintendant of Schools, Richard Grant, whom she so greatly respected and alongside Edith Davis, a very dear friend. She was herself the epitome of a true professional woman. She loved fashion and "dressed to the nines" whether going to work or to church. She was held in the highest regard by everyone in the community. She loved to bake and Saturdays were a flurry of cakes, pies, and such for the week ahead. Somehow she also managed to keep an immaculate home. Sewing became her greatest hobby, and she could match any dressmaker with the fashions she sewed. She also loved her houseplants and had an amazing green thumb; they flourished under her tender loving care. The joking was always about the watering of so many and the time it took. But her greatest joys in life were her boys and grandchildren. She was a most loving and affectionate lady. Her love was unconditional and in return she was dearly loved by her family and will long live in their hearts. As Jesus said "well done my good and faithful servant." Jeanette was a devout Christian and a member of the Cherryfield Baptist Church where in years past she taught Sunday school. She is survived by her two sons, Jon Morse and wife, Gail, of North Berwick and Jeffrey Morse and wife, Debra, of Montague, MA; grandsons, Scott Morse and wife, Cindy, of North Berwick, Jason Morse and wife, Erin, of Newmarket, NH, and Joshua Morse and wife, Paula, of Turners Falls, MA; great-grandchildren, Owen, Tatum, Amanda and Julia Morse; great-great-grandchild, Parker Tahai; several nieces and nephews; as well as Sharon St. Claire, who was like a daughter to her. She was predeceased by her husband of 48 years, Gerald Morse; and sisters, Ruth Wyman, Beulah Ramsdell and Doris Grant. Services will be private. A spring burial will be held at the Rock Maple Cemetery in Harrington. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Jeanette's memory may be made to the First Baptist Church of Cherryfield, P.O. Box 515, Cherryfield, ME 04622. Condolences may be expressed at www.jordanfernald.com .
