Obituary for Eunice Howard Baldwin (Folsom)

Print
Orrington - Eunice Howard Baldwin,92, entered eternity peacefully on February 13, 2019 at a Bangor healthcare facility with her loving family by her side. She was born the daughter of Charles E. Folsom Jr and Leila E. Pierce Folsom on March 26, 1926.

Eunice grew up on a dairy farm on the Wiswell Road in Brewer, graduated from Brewer High School and the Maine School of Commerce, now Husson University. She was one of seven children: Phyllis, Charlotte, Wendell, Buddy, Eunice, Josephine, and Carolyn. She considered herself “the odd one” being the middle child. She started out as a medical secretary and when her children were growing up, she was a secretary to the supervising principal of 3 Orrington Schools. She went on to work at the Maine State Human Services as well as for Eastern Maine Technical College as secretary to the Dean of Continuing Education. She also sold Avon for 19 years while working her other jobs. Eunice was married to Roger Howard for 53 years and dearly loved their 5 children: stepson, Roger Jr, Peggy, Brent, Colleen and Bill, as well as their grand and great-grandchildren.

Her hobbies included camping, knitting, crocheting, quilting, cooking and genealogy. She made at least one quilt for each of her children & grandchildren plus crocheted afghans for new babies as well. Her major hobby in later years was genealogy whereby she was accepted into the General Society of Mayflower Descendants and became a member of the Mayflower Society after researching the authenticity of her being the 9th generation descendant of John Alden. After she and her husband Roger retired, they enjoyed 10 winters in Zephyrhills, FL. While there, she was active in Ralph Park’s activities and volunteered at the East Pasco Medical Center. She also volunteered at Eastern Maine Technical College, the Brewer Public Library and the Audubon Society at the Fields Pond Nature Center. After her husband, Roger, passed away she volunteered at the Maine Veterans Home and the Orrington Public Library. She married Earl Baldwin in 2003 and enjoyed 8 years with him. Eunice was also a member and officer of the auxiliary to Maurice Miles VFW Post #4527, past matron of the Millwee Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star #198, past mother advisor of the Orrington Rainbow for Girls and a life member of the Grange.

She is survived by her children; John and Peggy Masterman of Lowell, ME; Brent and Jayne Howard, of Bucksport; Ron and Colleen Johnson, of So. Portland; Bill and Linda Howard, of Old Orchard Beach; daughter-in-law, Lynn Bromley of So. Portland; plus numerous grandchildren: Ron and Diana Howard, Rob and Susan Howard, Rick and Darcy Howard, Josh and Ashley Masterman, Jenn and Becky Saulnier, Dave and Kristin Varnum, Kyle and Courtney Howard, Jordan and Crystal Buchmann, Ben and Emily Rodgers, Alex and Claire Cox, and Mitchell Howard, plus 14 great-grandchildren. Eunice was predeceased by her husband Roger W. Howard in 2002, her second husband Earl H. Baldwin in 2012, and son Roger Howard Jr. in 2010.

Friends may visit the family from 7-8:30 PM Monday February 18, 2019 at the Brewer Chapel of Brookings-Smith, 55 So. Main St, Brewer. Eunice’s life will be celebrated at 1:00 PM, Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at the Orrington Center Church, 468 Dow Road, Orrington, with Pastor Travis Hoeben, officiating.
