MEDWAY - Marjorie M. Grant, 69, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 12, 2015 at her home. She was born September 18, 1945 in Houlton, the daughter of Raymond I. and Lottie M. (Niles) McLean.
Marjorie will be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Grant of Medway; six children, Michael and his wife Kathy of East Millinocket, Martin and his wife Mary of Medway, Mark and his partner Larry of Millinocket, Cheryl Grant and her partner Ivan Johnston, Theresa Federico and her husband Dominic, and Ira and his wife Wanda, all of Medway; seventeen grandchildren; eleven great grandchildren; many brothers and sisters; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, Marjorie was predeceased by a son, Frederick J. Grant, Jr., and a granddaughter, Bailey Rose Grant.
