Bartlett, Gail Lucille (Michaud) - Blue Hill  
BLUE HILL - Gail Lucille (Michaud) Bartlett, 62, of Blue Hill, died peacefully at home on June 16, 2016, of ovarian cancer. She was born November 10, 1953, to George and Claire (Daigle) Michaud, in Holyoke, MA. Her parents instilled in her the gifts of unconditional love and humility; her mother, the gift of inquiry. Her kin was a large, extended Franco-American family. She was happy growing up in a multi-cultural neighborhood in a small city, helping in the family's corner grocery store. She was the proud recipient of a full-scholarship to an experimental program at UMASS Amherst, where she met many lifelong friends. She later received a BA in Liberal Studies from Lesley College. In her twenties Gail spent time traveling and living in British Columbia, Oregon, and San Francisco, CA, before moving back East to Newburyport, MA. She held a number of jobs from window dresser to tree-planter to macrobiotic cook, and early explorations in natural foods, yoga, and Buddhism, would become lifelong practices. Gail was deeply curious, an original thinker, and encouraged others to think for themselves. She strove to live her life authentically, and in that pursuit, moved with her husband Richard Bartlett and young daughters Bryn and Robin to the Blue Hill Peninsula in 1987. Later they designed and built a beautiful home together in the woods of Blue Hill. Gail cultivated extensive organic vegetable and flower gardens. Home was a refuge, but Gail also loved this community. For 30 years she dedicated much of her time and energy to the Blue Hill Co-op. She was a longtime owner/member, and served as co-general manager, board member, and board president, for which she received a national award for her leadership in 2009. The Tree of Life and the Blue Hill Public Library also benefited from her generosity and knowledgeable service. Gail will be remembered for her great mind, wise counsel, honesty, insight, sharp wit, vibrant voice, and her ability to create beauty and meaning out of the ordinary, love of the natural world, and of the contemplative life. She lived with integrity and awareness, and faced her death with incredible strength and courage. She was a loving wife, mother, mémère, and friend, and the emotional anchor of her family. She will be profoundly missed. Gail is survived by her husband Richard, daughter Bryn Arbuckle and partner Gavin Protas, daughter Robin Bartlett Rissi and husband Christof Rissi, grandsons John and Miles Rissi, and her brother Robert Lacroix. We are grateful for the compassionate palliative care Gail received from the Blue Hill Memorial Hospital, Hancock County Homecare & Hospice, and to Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County, our generous community, President Obama and the ACA. Donations may be made to the Blue Hill Public Library or Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County. A memorial service will be held at the Morgan Bay Zendo in Surry on Saturday, June 25, 2016. At 2pm there will be a 30 minute sitting meditation (optional) and by a circle gathering at 3pm in the meeting hall. All are welcome.

Bowman, Jonathan Philip - St. Albans  
SAINT ALBANS - Jonathan Philip Bowman, 16, passed comfortably into heaven June 18, 2016 after a year long battle with cancer. His mother, sister, and father were by his side as they had been throughout his entire life. He was born in Skowhegan, June 29, 1999, the son of Kevin L. Bowman and Susan (Morrison) Bowman. Jonny, as he was affectionately referred to by all who came to know him, instantly made friends wherever he was with his infectious smile and shining personality. He attended schools in RSU 19 and was a rising honors senior at John Bapst Memorial High School. Jonny was an accomplished student-athlete and worked hard as an academic achiever. He enjoyed participating in many sports including baseball, soccer, basketball, golf, and lacrosse and was an honor student. While in middle school he was awarded the John Parola Scholar Athlete Award in both seventh and eighth grade. He still holds the record in two middle schools for the fastest runner. In high school, he was named most valuable player during his only golf season. He also participated in Latin Club, Key Club, band, and served as a John Bapst student ambassador. Jonny and many of his teammates became obsessed with lacrosse in 2011. He played on the newly formed Mid-Maine Lacrosse Club with the #1 jersey. This tight knit group of boys eventually became the joint MCI-Nokomis team. Jonny was thankful to be included and was the high scorer for the 2015 season, scoring 59 goals. As the team competed around the state, the opposing teams could often be heard saying 'watch out for number #1.' This last spring season, during his battle with cancer, he was proud to be named the attack coach and attended as many practices and games as he could. Jonathan was a member of Troop 404 Boy Scouts serving as patrol leader for several years. He also enjoyed participating in the Trek Across Maine, raising funds for the American Lung Association, and he was an avid outdoorsman and skier. Obviously, he was a young man headed for great things. Jonny is survived by his parents Kevin and Susan, and sister Abigail Bowman, all of St. Albans; paternal grandparents Ethelyn and Philip Bowman of St. Albans; and many aunts, uncles, beloved cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by paternal grandparents David John and Patricia Morrison of Harmony. So God, watch out for #1...he will be looking to score! The family would like to thank all the doctors and staff for their kindness and caring both at the Lafayette Cancer Center in Brewer and the pediatric ward at EMMC over the past year. Friends may call from 6-8 P.M. Thursday at Crosby & Neal, 117 Main Street, Newport. A public funeral service will be held at 11 A. M. Friday, June 24th, at the Bowman residence, 15 Philbrick Road, St. Albans. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Mid-Maine Lacrosse at 1279 Great Moose Drive, Hartland, 04943.
