Princeton and Ellsworth - Marilyn Ann Crowe, 85, passed away Sunday, January 6, 2019, surrounded by her loving children. Marilyn was born in Houlton on January 28, 1933, daughter of Guy and Olga (Sowers) Marshall.
Marilyn was a hard working stoic woman who held many jobs to include: the sardine factory in Calais where her great sense of humor had everyone in stitches nightly; CNA at Calais Regional Hospital where her compassion and meticulous care of her patients were respected by all; and janitor and bus driver for Princeton Elementary School where her artistic talents were on display daily on the bulletin boards, her ability to swing a mop unsurpassed and her impact on children still remembered.
Her passions included working puzzles, ironing, buying Christmas presents, picking strawberries, picking potatoes, and raving at the Red Sox. In her last conversations with family, she said she wished she was "still working and picking potatoes".
In addition to her parents, Marilyn was predeceased by four siblings, Donna, Charlie, Hildred and Horace; and by her beloved son Kenneth; daughter Melanie; grandson Stevie; and special friend Earl. Surviving are her four children, Danny and wife Joanie, Debbie and husband Greg, Pam, and Rick and wife Tina; 12 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; who loved her dearly and will miss her greatly.
A graveside service will be held 11:00 am, Saturday, May 25th at Codyville Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Marilyn's memory to the Marilyn Crowe Scholarship Fund, a scholarship that will be given to students from Princeton who wish to pursue higher education, c/o Machias Savings Bank, Attn; Eryn Meeker, 127 Main St., Princeton, ME 04668. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
