DENMARK — Elna E. Hale was born June 7, 1938, and went to be with the lord after a brave battle at home on Feb. 17, 2016.

She was born to Albert and Elna McAllister in Albany Township. She attended school in Lovell and Fryeburg. She married Irving Hale in 1955 and they lived for 13 years in Scarborough before moving to Denmark in 1972, where she lived the rest of her life.

She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was never happier than when surrounded by family and friends.

She loved nature, her flowers, vegetable gardens, and watching the birds coming to her feeder. She loved her pets and had many cats and dogs over the course of her life. Her favorite hobby was sewing. She shared her love through the making of her dolls, Teddy bears, and baby quilts that were cherished by children of family and friends both locally and across the country.
