BRUNSWICK — Phyllis Viola Eaton Hart, 98, died Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, at Thornton Oaks Retirement Community in Brunswick.

She was born in Phippsburg, August 3, 1915, daughter of Leon Eaton and Alice Wyman. She graduated from Morse High School, Bath, in 1933 and later at Nasson College. She was employed by Firemen’s Fund Insurance Co., the state of Maine as secretary to chairman of the Accident Commission and the Becker Company, East Orange, NJ.

She was married in 1939 to Wallace K. Hart, who died in 2003 after 64 years of marriage. They lived in Augusta, Rangeley, Dixfield, Lewiston, and moved to NJ and resided in Irvington and Florham Park. At retirement she and her husband returned to Maine and lived in Edgecomb and Wiscasset.

In Wiscasset she was active in the First Congregational Church and treasurer of the Senior Center. She volunteered at Miles Hospital in Damariscotta for 17 years as a switchboard operator.

Phyllis loved to bake and always had the cookie jar filled for her husband, family and visitors. She was known for her great cooking skills and entertaining neighbors and friends. Evenings were spent knitting sweaters which were donated to the church Summer Fest. Family was her priority and she was always interested in the lives of those she loved. Spending time at the Small Point cottage was also special with the lobster picnics and friends. Doing kind things for others was her specialty. During her last 9 years at Thornton Oaks she developed many treasured friends.

She is survived by a daughter, Carol Matlock (David) of Yorkville, IL; a son, Brad Hart (Suzanne) of Phippsburg, ME; 4 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Alice Clark of Bath, ME.
