Members of the law enforcement community in southern Maine are mourning the death of Kim Maxfield-Fearon, a longtime administrative assistant for the Falmouth Police Department who also worked for several other area police departments.

Kim Maxfield-Fearon

Maxfield-Fearon died unexpectedly from flu complications on March 29, News Center Maine (WCSH/WBLZ) reported. She was 58.

Maxfield-Fearon worked in Falmouth for more than 20 years, as well as for the Portland and Gorham police departments, the station reported. Her husband, Lawrence Maxfield-Fearon, is an officer on the Gorham force.

Falmouth Police Chief Edward Tolan said Maxfield-Fearon was a healthy 58-year-old. In early February, she completed a run up 41 flights of stairs for the American Lung Association. A couple of weeks later, she went home sick, with flu-like symptoms.

“She’s just a wonderful person. I’m going to miss her,” Tolan told News Center Maine. “Kim had a lot to do here; she was the glue that kept this place together.”

A memorial service will be held Saturday at Gorham High School, beginning at 11 a.m., Tolan said. The public is welcome.
