Marjory Hilb, 91

RAYMOND — Marjory Hilb, a lifelong member of the Catholic Church and Eucharistic Minister, peacefully passed away on Friday, April 25, 2014, after living a very full life of 91 years.

Born in Biddeford on April 22, 1923, Marge moved to New York as a child and later, while working as a teller in a bank, met and married Theodore Hilb. Their marriage was blessed with four children: Robert, Kathryn, Margie, and James. Faith and family were paramount in Marge's life and she selflessly and always supported all her children and grandchildren.

Marge and Ted retired to Maine and bought a beautiful home on Sebago Lake in Raymond. An accomplished swimmer and rower, with a twinkle in her eye Marge routinely amused and impressed her grandchildren by flexing her muscles and making her biceps jump. Ever the independent and adventurous person, Marge taught herself about home repair, traveled to Ireland, where she visited her Hayes family homestead, and also visited Jerusalem, Egypt, and Rome. As her life with Ted, her children, and then her grandchildren fulfilled her, her faith sustained her. Marge's generosity to others and volunteerism at church events and the local library endeared her to all that met her, particularly young children.

Marge is survived by two sons, Robert Hilb of Prescot, Ariz., James Hilb of Sabattus; and two daughters, Kathryn Meltzer of Limerick, and Margie Swick of Raymond. She is also survived by her 10 grandchildren; along with her six great-grandchildren. Marge was predeceased by her husband, Ted; brothers, John and George, and her sister, Josephine.

Her indomitable Irish spirit and the love she shared and spread to her family and friends will be greatly missed.

A memorial Mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Windham. After the Mass there will be a luncheon at the church to celebrate Marge's life. Funeral arrangements are by Hall Funeral Home, Casco.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: The Raymond Public Library, or Our Lady's Guild, 919 Roosevelt Tr., Windham, Maine 04062
