Lydia was a secretary in my law office for several years. She was talented and could churn out her assignments with unmatched speed and accuracy. If I had only one word to describe Lydia it would be “feisty.” She took no guff from anyone - including often-demanding short-tempered lawyers. Fortunately, I was always on her good side!
Lydia was brought up in Stickney Corners, a small rural neighborhood in Washington, Knox County. Early on she decided to expand her horizons and developed the secretarial skills which led her to a series of progressively more challenging jobs. Some were in state government and others in the private sector. All those for whom she worked were lavish in their praise for her skills and her work ethic.
Lydia Day is a shining exemplar of many Maine women of her era who came from disadvantaged backgrounds and worked incredibly hard to attain the skills which would elevate their income-earning power. During Lydia’s era, secretaries were not only regarded as drudges but also the subject of sexual harassment. Lydia gained respect by her no-nonsense attitude and her refusal, often in salty terms, to put up with those who failed to give her the respect which she had earned and deserved.

Many moons ago Lydia and I were in the same unit of the Maine Attorney General's office. I looked forward to working with her each day. When I bought my house in Windsor, I was surprised to learn that she had picked beans on my home site when she was a girl! I appreciated her dry wit and Yankee humor, and will always remember her.
