Mary Stiles

Mary Lamb Stiles, 85, of Bridgton passed away on Thursday, June 21, 2018, at the Hospice House in Auburn.

She was born May 7, 1933, a daughter of Walter and Helen (Griffin) Lamb Sr.

She grew up in Windham and was a graduate of Windham High School. Shortly after school, Mary married Keith Stiles; together they lived in North Carolina while Keith was stationed in the Marine Corps. They later moved back to Windham, where they resided for many years. Mary helped keep the books for Keith with the family business, Windham Transmission.

After Keith’s passing, Mary later became a “snowbird,” spending her winters in St. Cloud, Fla., and her summers in Bridgton. She was a talented seamstress and enjoyed crocheting. A quietly generous person, she donated countless items such as lap blankets and potholders to the local nursing homes. Mary will be long remembered for her strong will and independence.

She is survived by her son, Keith Stiles Jr.; brothers, Walter Lamb Jr. and Frank Lamb; a sister, Anna Quinlan; three grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

A funeral service was held on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Windham Chapel of Dolby, Blais & Segee, 434 River Road, Windham, ME 04062, where a period of visitation was held from 10 a.m. until the service. Burial followed at Smith Cemetery in Windham.
