Obituary

Phoebe Milliken, at 100, gathered her family for Thanksgiving, rose, and simply died — peacefully and without pain. The best mother, devoted partner, friend to more people than most ever know, and intimately vital supporter to so many. Mount Desert Island was her first love, after her childhood farm home in Lancaster, MA. Many of you have received a note, a clipping, or a word from Phoebe when it mattered.
Forever a conservationist, Phoebe cared fiercely for all of Nature’s, to her God’s, creations and not at all for the artificial.
Her family will remember her in a service next Summer. In lieu of anything else, please give as generously as you are able to a Hancock County or Maine-wide organization that sustains the natural environment or lifts another less fortunate than ourselves. Phoebe is survived by her brother, John Goodhue in New Hampshire, six children and a bundle of grands and great- grands spread coast to coast, and who all return to this island.


Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them forgotten before God?
Luke 12:6

Dear Gerrish Millikens and friends,

I didn't really hear about her death until it was announced in church on Sunday. The (new for us) Rev. Stephen Muncie, who didn't know Phoebe, announced it as though he had known her for decades (he should have). I personally felt the loss just then and the tears came, but they were also tears for the loss to this community. For a 100 year old woman? Of course. It was Phoebe.

I will write a real letter, but I wanted to send my love to all of you. How blessed I feel to have known her, even if it wasn't as well as I would have liked. You are an amazing family. Thanks you.

Hugs to ALL, Sydney
