FREEPORT — Georgia Hindley, 87, died at her home on Saturday March 7, 2015, with family by her side.

She was born June 1, 1927, in Topsham, a daughter of Albert and Abigail Snow Merriman. She was a graduate of Freeport High School and the Farmington Normal School. She married Edward Bowen Hindley in Freeport on September 7, 1957.

Mrs. Hindley taught Home Economics at Freeport High School for 20 years. She had been a member of the Maine State Teachers Association. She was a constant support to various booster clubs, including everything from fundraising to washing band uniforms — if it needed doing she was ready to be helpful in anyway.

After retiring from teaching, she entered a second vocation as a seamstress in the alterations department for LL Bean, Freeport, for another 20 years. Her second retirement came at the age of 82.

She enjoyed her sewing, as well as her painting. Above all else, she found the most satisfaction helping others whenever she could.

She was predeceased by a brother Weston Merriman; and a sister Shirley Cooley.

She is survived by her husband Edward of Freeport; two sons, Alan Hindley of Freeport and William Hindley of Naples; a daughter Beth Giacchetti of Bayonne, N.J.; and five grandchildren.

Friends and family can visit from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 12, at the Brackett Funeral Home, 29 Federal St., Brunswick. A funeral service will follow at 2 p.m., Friday, March 13 at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation at
