Edna Mae (York) Loveitt, age 87, of Bath, passed away on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018, at Winship Green after six months of slow, steady declining health.
Edna was born in Phippsburg on Dec. 30, 1930, the fifth of eight children born to James York and Etta (Wallace) York.
In 1947, she married George “Bob” McLean. They had three children, John, Shirley and Dana.
In 1960, she married George Loveitt. Together they ran Park Bowling Alley and Loveitt’s Market in Bath.
In 1973, they moved to Georgetown where they lived until 2004 when George passed away. During her years in Georgetown she was especially close to her sister-in-law, Ethel Loveitt, who she loved like a sister.
In 2005, Edna moved to the Moorings where she lived until 2018 when declining health prompted her decision to move to Wiscasset Green Assisted Living. Shortly after her health declined again and she moved to Winship Green.
During her lifetime Edna was an energetic, kind and caring lady who helped many people including caring for her father and her daughter until their passing. She waitressed and hostessed at many local restaurants, retiring from Grand City in Brunswick in 1984.
She was a member of the Emblem Club, a lifetime member of the VFW and past president of the Ladies Auxilliary.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by siblings Bud, Robert, Sonny, Marie and Lorna, her daughter Shirley and her grandson John. She is survived by sons John and Dana McLean, sisters Ilene Perry and Carolyn Wallace and many grandchildren and their families.
Edna will be deeply missed by family and friends. A heartfelt thank you goes out to her good friend, Lona Mott, for her consistent companionship during the last six months of Edna’s life.
Interment will be in the Georgetown Cemetery on Friday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m.
