Marilyn W Dean

One of the library's most devoted and loved patrons and a former employee, Marilyn Dean, passed away on February 28, 2008. She was born in Presque Isle and attended Presque Isle schools, Bates College, and Chamberlain School of Retailing. She was married to Perley M. Dean of Easton.

Marilyn was employed by SAD #42 Mars Hills, was a Children's Librarian at the Turner Memorial Library, and was a Health Sciences Librarian for 24 years at the Aroostook Medical Center.

At her request, contributions in her memory can be made to this library. To date, over $1,600 dollars have been donated to purchase books in her memory. Some books have also been purchased in memory of her husband Perley Dean.

The books are on display in the adult section of the library. Please stop in and see this loving tribute to this wonderful woman. There are many beautiful children's books, cookbooks, Maine books, mysteries, and many other titles that reflect Marilyn's interests.
