BEVERLY F. MACOMBER
GREENVILLE - Beverly F. Macomber, 77, a lifelong resident of Greenville, was called home to rest June 21, 2007, at St. Joseph Manor, Portland. She died very much at peace; she left this world truly loved. Mama was very well known for her baking, especially her old fashioned molasses cookies, pies, cakes, gingerbread men and popcorn balls, to name a few. She lovingly prepared wonderful meals for her family and friends. If there was sickness or death in a neighbor's family, she was usually the first one there with a home cooked meal. Because of her shyness, these were usually delivered when no one was home. She was a strong, hard working woman, known for her faith, warmth, compassion and gentle spirit. She was the brightest light in her daughter's life and she will miss the comfort of her embrace and will miss loving her. Beverly was very active in the Union Church for most of her life; she was the founder of the Thrift Shop and worked unselfishly for more than 20 years. She was a member of the Ready Workers and Missionary Society, held various offices in these organizations, as well as the Rebekah Lodge. She considered her greatest accomplishment returning to high school and receiving her diploma at 49 years of age. Beverly received a standing ovation that night after she gave her graduation speech to a packed auditorium.
She was predeceased by her daughter, "baby Julie"; her husband, Wilfred; parents, Ray and Lillian Murphy Walker; and brothers, Frank and Sonny. She leaves behind her daughter, Brenda Macomber of Portland; her granddaughter, Becky Munster of Searsport; her sisters, Fanny Roy of Greenville, Sally Bell of Tenants Harbor and Bitha Hyland of Dexter; her brother, Philip Walker of Greenville; and a very special brother-in-law, Gordon Bell; many nieces, nephews and very special friends, her brothers and sisters in Christ at the New Life Church.
There will be no visiting hours. A memorial service in Greenville will be announced at a later date. Burial will take place at Greenville Cemetery.
Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a donation in her memory to St. Joseph's Manor, 1133 Washington Ave., Portland, ME 04103 or a charity of one's choice. Arrangements by Dolby & Dorr Funeral Chapel
