Obituary for Mary Perkins

Mary  Perkins
SOUTH GARDINER, MAINE
Mary Louise Perkins was born March 29, 1941, in Gardiner, Maine as the fifth child of Addie Maria Dailey and Perley G. Perkins.
Mary graduated from Gardiner High School in 1959 and was an enthusiastic student, earning an Associates degree at the University of Maine in Augusta, where she continued attending classes for more than two decades.
She was a retired State of Maine employee who worked for the Motor Vehicle Department and DHHS for 33 years.
Mary was a devoted member of the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Augusta where she enjoyed participating in many church events.
She supported Maine’s Native American tribes, attended legislative hearings on their behalf, enjoyed summer pow-wows and loved Native American music. She participated in archeological digs with Friends of Merrymeeting Bay, volunteered for years at the Maine State Museum, worked at the Gardiner voting polls, attended the Gardiner Library Book Club and enjoyed genealogical research. Mary was also an avid photographer who often sold her photos and other crafts at local craft shows. She loved to hike and was a member of the National Audubon Society, the Nature Conservancy and the Nature Club of Augusta.
Mary leaves behind five nieces: Dolores Burgess (Farmingdale), Judy Griffin (NC), Beth Bouley (FL), Laura Perkins (Stockton Springs) and Kathy Perkins (Edgecomb), five great-nieces: Wendy, Shannon, Kristyne, Jen, Emily and five great-great-nephews: Kenneth, Holden, Spencer, Elmer, and ten-year old Devin, with whom she got to spend much precious time and one great-great-niece Florence. Mary was predeceased by niece Pat Shaw and great-niece Carolyn Weston Johnson.
After a three-month illness, Mary passed away October 24, 2017, at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice Care Center. The family will always remember Mary for her outpouring of kindness, affection and her passion for protecting our planet Earth.
A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, October 27 at 11:00 a.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Community Church, 69 Winthrop St., Augusta, ME. There will be no public visiting hours and burial will be in the spring of 2018.
