Obituary for Marilyn Parkinson

Marilyn Parkinson
Lamoine -- Marilyn Rosebrook Parkinson born on the beautiful coast of Maine October 8, 1929, passed gently on her journey the afternoon of May 11, 2018. Marilyn and her family moved from Maine when she was a young teenager. Marilyn was predeceased by her parents, Bertha and Willard Rosebrook. Later she and her husband raised five children in Manchester, CT, later retiring to Lamoine, ME to live in a log home the entire family had a part in building.

Beautiful Marilyn was the loving wife of William Henry Parkinson (deceased May 17, 2013) and a wonderful mother to William Parkinson, Jr and friend Kathleen Veilleux, Marilyn Thrall and husband Roger, Donald Parkinson and wife Pamela, Joanne Parkinson and fiancé John Brundage, Debra Parkinson and husband Ed Zatursky.

A special person makes an exceptional Grandparent and Marilyn was so very special. Marilyn leaves behind 11 Grandchildren, Kristy Rosa, Jennifer Parkinson, Jessica Thrall, Lindsay Mehta and husband Ranu, Ashley Thrall and friend Nick, Alycia Hazard and husband Adam, Matthew Parkinson and wife Andrea, Jeremy Parkinson and Justine, Caitlyn Lewis and husband Matt, Emily Keifer and husband Adam, Adam Parkinson and friend Ashley, 14 Great Grandchildren and 2 Great Great Grandchildren.

Marilyn leaves behind cousins, Edna Coyne, Dana Lear and wife Mary, Ken MacKinnon and wife Lynn and Jerold Mackinnon.

Marilyn was also predeceased by her sisters Charlotte Campbell and Vera Higgins.

Marilyn will be missed by so many. We have lost a very beautiful woman who always had an open mind, a contagious smile and a heart filled with love to share. To her, family was everything.

She often would say “if ever you can’t find me, please don’t look for me on Cranberry Island" (Of course that is where she would be reminiscing about her happy childhood.)

In lieu of flowers, please send contributions in memory of Marilyn to:
"Help keep Great Cranberry Island Historical Society" or a charity of your choice.

Services will be held at a later date.

Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 113 Franklin St. Ellsworth.
