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 Peter, Gerry, Phoebe Ann, Steve and John,
I sent an email to you all to express my sincere sympathy and condolences at the death of your beloved mother, but fear some may not have received it. So, I make another attempt to say how sad I am for you, for me, though not for dear Phoebe. I have had the privilege of sharing prayers with Phoebe for years, and know she was so ready to say adieu.
We met many years ago at the Greenwich Audubon Center, sharing a love of birds. One day I said I would like to see a new bird for my life list, so voila, she found a Blackburnian warbler I had never seen. Then we became very close friends, she at 70, I at 50, through your sister Susie and my Kelley. She exclaimed "I never thought at this late date I would find another deep friend". What a gift she was to me, as to many.
Rather than ramble, I will end by saying I will miss the prayer lists, the emails and the love and joy she brought me.
My very best to you all.
Martha Eustis
