Obituary of Hilda Bernice Parlin

Please share a memory of Hilda to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Hilda B. Parlin of Waldoboro passed away peacefully on May 3 after a brief stay at Cove’s Edge in Damariscotta. She was born August 15, 1928, to Ralph and Myrtle (Hunt) McLain and was raised in Bremen with her siblings Marjorie, Douglas, Celia, Elsie and Herbert.

In March of 1946 she married Willard Parlin (deceased). They moved to West Waldoboro where they raised their five children. She was employed by GTE Sylvania for over 34 years. Bored with retirement, she spent the next 14 years working as a caregiver/companion to several elderly local residents. Hilda was always very hard working, but found time for her many interests: quilting, rug braiding, sewing, crocheting, gardening and preserving food, cooking, and enjoying her many friends and family.

Her strong will and independence served her well, affording herthe ability to live alone at home until her stay at Cove’s Edge. She is survived by her sister, Celia Ramsdell, and her five children: Herman Parlin and wife Sharon of Scarborough, Patricia Aboud and husband Bill of Cushing, Irma Wotton and husband Blake of Friendship, Ricky Parlin and fiancé Linda of Waldoboro, and Shelia Ball and husband David of Cumberland. She is also survived by her many beloved grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren as well as her dear friend Paula Martineau of Rochester, New Hampshire.

It was her wish that there be no public service commemorating her life, however, memories and condolences may be shared with the family at www.directcremationofmaine.com.
