- Elizabeth Ann 'Beth' Mayhew, 53, died after a brief illness February 27, 2017, at a Bangor hospital. She was born July 6, 1963, in Amesbury, MA, the daughter of Eugene and Bonnie (King) Janvrin.
Beth attended schools in Newburyport and Amesbury, eventually receiving earning a GED. She worked various jobs in her lifetime including building lobster traps, shucking clams, store clerk, CNA, and driving a taxi, which she did for 17 years.
