Obituary for Ethel F. Fitzpatrick

CALAIS – Ethel Florence Fitzpatrick, 101 passed away Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at Marshall Healthcare in Machias. Ethel was born in Baring on February 19, 1916, one of 13 children to Herbert Belle and Mildred (Jordan) Moreshead. She graduated from Calais Academy, Class of 1932, and was a member of the National Honor Society. On August 11, 1948, she married her love, Herbert Fitzpatrick, at the Advent Christian Camp on Big Lake. Ethel worked as a floor supervisor for Ware Knitters and was a past member of the Alexander Grange, Pomona, and Orion Chapter #45 O.E.S. She attended the Advent Christian Church in Milltown, and in later years the local Baptist Churches where she was a member of the Philathea Class. She enjoyed knitting, cooking for others and loved spending time with her family. A visit to Aunt Ethel’s house would always include a tasty snack from a “pin neat” kitchen while enjoying the company of a fine lady.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved husband in 2001, Herbert; and 11 of her siblings. She is survived by her brother, George Moreshead of Calais; and several special nieces and nephew; Eileen Lewis of Baileyville; Norma Farrar of Canton, CT; Rachel Hamilton of Baileyville; Jerry Moreshead of Baring; Gene Fitzpatrick & Carol of Tucson, AZ; James Fitzpatrick of Bangor; Richard Dinsmore of Canada; and Sandra Sherrard & Mike of Milltown who took her aunt into her home and lovingly took care of her as long as she could. Aunt Ethel is also survived by several special great nieces and nephews that she was very fond of.

Visiting hours will be held Tuesday, March 14, 2017 from 12 noon until the hour of service, 1 p.m., at Mays Funeral Home, 26 Church St., Calais with Rev. Robert Hinton officiating. Burial will follow in Calais Cemetery.
