Laurie Flavin Marin, of Standish, passed away on March 2, 2019, after a long battle with cancer.
An instructor of young children, Laurie not only edified with subject matter, but through her quiet and gentle ways and her sincere, winning, little-girl smile, served as a wonderfully patient role model for them as well as for me, our sons, her colleagues and everyone she knew—a genuinely nice person in a harsh world.
Both graduates of SPHS and UMO, Laurie and Roger shared many adventures over their nearly 54-year marriage: from their first, a two-year family sailing voyage in their home-built boat, to their last, a partial cross-country RV trip.
Laurie is survived by Roger; sons Eric and Craig; three grandchildren, Anna, Nick and Sydney; and her sister, Vee Burden and family.
A funeral service will be held at 10:00 am, Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at the Falmouth Congregational Church, 267 Falmouth Rd., Falmouth, Maine. A gathering of family and friends will follow at the church. Due to lack of parking space at the cemetery, attendance at the burial will be limited to family and close friends.
Donations in memory of Laurie may be made to Shriners Children’s or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
