Marie Elizabeth Avery

July 2, 1944 — October 22, 2021

Eastport – Marie Elizabeth Avery, 77, passed away Friday, October 22, 2021. Marie was born at the family home in Eastport on July 2, 1944, daughter of Charles and Emily (Ramsdell) Avery.

Surviving are her two brothers, Ray Avery of Pembroke, and Larry Avery and wife Ruth of Eastport; sister-in-law Sandra Avery of Eastport; special cousins, Shirley Montier and Joan Morton; and several nieces, nephews and friends at the Boynton Manor.
