Jeanne F. Golding

NORTH YARMOUTH – Jeanne F. Golding, 88, of North Yarmouth, passed away peacefully with family by her side on May 2, 2021 at Gosnell House. Jeanne was born to Harland and Beatrice Doughty on Oct. 2, 1932. She graduated from Greely Institute in 1951 where she met the love of her life at a school dance. About a year later, she married Thomas Golding at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Jeanne and Tom enjoyed 58 years of marriage. They settled in her home town of North Yarmouth where they raised four children.

Jeanne was proud to be a Sunday school teacher of the North Yarmouth Congregational Church. She drove the school bus for Cumberland/North Yarmouth schools. Jeanne loved to be with the children and truly felt she made a difference in all their lives. She was a member of the Westcustogo Grange and three-time Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star Androscoggin Chapter #165. She put her heart and soul into her work and relationships.

Jeanne was a proud mother and wife. She valued strong family tradition, always had a smile on her face and had a passion for keeping harmony. Jeanne was selfless. She gave all she could of herself to anyone that knew her. She will be remembered as a

wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and companion. Jeanne loved caring for animals and working in her flower gardens. On any given summer day, you could often find Jeanne working in one of her many beautiful gardens wearing a wide brim sun

hat with the biggest smile. She will always be remembered as our Angel.

Along with her parents, Jeanne was preceded in death by her husband, Tom Golding; and her brother, Stanley Doughty.

She is survived by her brother, Dwight Doughty of Cumberland; four children, Sally Barter and Michael of Weston, Mo., Katherine Didyk and Donald of Manitoba, Canada, Thomas Golding II and Bernice of Jacksonville, Fla., and Harland Golding and
