Leah M. Harmon, 88, of Yarmouth, passed away on November 2 at Brentwood Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
She was born December 22, 1922, in Woolwich, the youngest daughter of the late Hartley and Mildred (Bishop) Hathorne. She attended Woolwich schools and Morse High School, and while unable to complete school due to a car accident, she was very proud to have received her GED later on.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Leah worked at one of her favorite jobs - as Dog Constable and Truant Officer for the town of Woolwich. She spent a lot of time taking in stray dogs and cats and making sure they received the care they needed.
Leah's biggest accomplishment, however, was her family. When her grandchildren came along, she was right there for every moment. Her two daughters, her grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren were her pride and joy.
Leah was predeceased by her husband, Norwood Harmon, and her nine older brothers and sisters.
She is survived by her two daughters, Rosalie of Sanford and Penny and partner, Dan, of Edgecomb, as well as four grandchildren, Derek Freeman of Phippsburg, Stephenie Freeman of Skowhegan, Ryan Laurie of Jay, and Lindsey Cochran and husband, Marc, of Wilton, along with her six great-grandchildren, Skyler, Curtis, and Annie of Edgecomb, Richard and Bobbi of Phippsburg, and Landen of Wilton.
At the request of Leah, there will be no funeral services and a private family burial will be held at a later date. Memories and condolences may be shared on her tribute wall.
