SCARBOROUGH - Jean Cluett Clothier, 87, of Scarborough passed away at Sedgewood Commons in Falmouth on May 23, 2016. Jean was born in Bucksport, Maine on June 28, 1928 to Maria (Cluett) and Capt. Matthew Critchell.

She attended Arlington High School in Arlington, Mass. Jean married Royce Smith and together they had two daughters, Sandra and Jessica (Phyllis). She worked as a home delivery milkman delivering milk door to door in Bucksport, Orland and Verona Island until the mid sixties when the business was sold. Royce and Jean later divorced and Jean married Arthur Clement (Clem) Clothier the widowed husband of Jean's cousin Rhoda. Arthur had one son, Matthew. Before retiring to Murphy Cove, Nova Scotia with Clem, Jean worked a number of years at the Liberty National Bank in Bucksport and enjoyed servicing the public once again. Jean loved to cook and especially liked baking pies and frying chocolate donuts. She liked to travel and traveled across the USA via car, lived in Murphy Cove, Nova Scotia, Albuquerque, New Mexico, Flower Mound, Texas, Glen Allen, Virginia, and back to Maine. She visited Hawaii twice, Mexico and Canada and most recently went to Ireland to find the home where her step-father grew up. Jean was proud of her dual citizenship with Canada and the USA.

Jean is survived by her daughter, Sandra Robshaw and her husband Jeffrey of Bucksport; daughter, Jessica (Phyllis) Moretti and husband Michael of Scarborough; step-son, Mathew Clothier and partner Debbie MacNeil; one granddaughter, Racheal Robshaw; and two great-grandchildren, Remington and Natalie. She was predeceased by her parents; four sisters; one brother; and husbands, Royce and Arthur (Clem).
