Edith M. LeMay

Obituary Condolences

BENNINGTON -- Edith M. LeMay, 87, widow of Robert X. LeMay and a longtime resident of Gore Road, died Sunday, July 2, 2006, at the Vermont Veterans Home following a brief illness.

Born in Mattocks, Maine, Nov. 14, 1918, she was the daughter of the late Charles E. and Madeline (Lombard) Quimby. She received her education in the Portland, Maine schools. Edith later attended the Reddington Memorial Hospital in Gardner, Maine, and Alice Peck Day Hospital, where she was trained as a nurse.

After her retirement in 1984, she continued to be an active advocate for the elderly. She will also be remembered for sharing her political views, especially her political perspective about the war in Iraq and White House “resident George dubya.” Many friends and fans enjoyed her no-frills, tell-it-like-it-is letters to the editor of the Bennington Banner.

She was a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary Post 1332 and a member of the Second Congregational Church in Bennington.

Mrs. LeMay was predeceased by a son, James Emmons; two daughters, Barbara Emmons and Marjorie Paquette; and by a brother and sister, James Quimby and Virginia Quimby.

Memorial services celebrating the life of Edith LeMay will be held from the Second Congregational Church on Hillside Street on Saturday, July 29, 2006, at 9 a.m. with the Rev. Mary Lee Clark, pastor, officiating.

Private interment will take place at a later date.

Should friends desire, contributions in memory of Mrs. Edith LeMay may be made to either the Activities Fund at the Vermont Veterans Home or to the Bennington Rescue Squad through the office of the Mahar & Son Funeral Home, 628 Main St., Bennington, VT 05201.
