Obituary for Judith F Grant

Judith F. Grant, age 77, passed away on Monday, July 13, 2020 at LincolnHealth – Miles Campus in Damariscotta.

Judith was born on May 3, 1943 in Bowdoinham, the daughter of Charles O’Neil and Eleanor Fowler O’Neill. Judith grew up everywhere and moved to Waldoboro in 1981 after buying her home.

She was very involved in the fishing community and knitted potheads and helped buy elvers with her son Chris. She also worked at Metal Magic with her husband making plenums. In the winter months she could be found making wreaths and helmet covers. She was always doing something. She could sit for hours picking crabs and drinking coffee with her friends. She loved to read books and would have three going at once. She had a passion for cooking and handed it down to her daughter. She loved flowers and had many gardens to show it. Her house was open to everyone and she was known as the neighborhood mom. Everyone loved her.

Judith is predeceased by her husband, Edwin K. Grant and her son James Franklin Penn.

She is survived by her children, Charles Fiore and wife Tammy of Bedias, TX, Carla Chapman of Wiscasset, Chris Fiore of Augusta and John Penn of Waldoboro; grandchildren Kimberly Emerson and husband Travis, Rebecca Penn, Christopher Fiore, Jr., Jennifer Grierson and Rebecca Garnet and great granddaughters Candice Emerson, Brittany, Madison and Mercedes, as well as several nieces and nephews.

The family will celebrate Judith’s life privately.
