Obituary of Virginia Boone

Virginia L. Boone

Brewer – Virginia L. Boone, 86, wife of the late Ronald L. Boone, Sr., passed away peacefully on July 5, 2018 with her family by her side. This date is significant as it was the 1 year anniversary of her husband's passing. She was born May 2, 1932 in Eastport, the daughter of Thomas L. and Myrtle E. Foley.  Virginia worked in the sardine factories and the Guilford Woolen Mill in Eastport during her younger years. She also worked for many years at C.F. Hathaway in Waterville. During her retirement, Virginia and her husband Ron traveled many miles to attend their grandchildren's sporting events. In her later years, Virginia kept busy doing cross stitch. The many beautiful projects that she created will be cherished by her family for years to come. Her most favorite holiday was the 4th of July. She and her husband Ron, along with many other family members, spent the holiday staying at Harris Point Cabins in Eastport, overlooking Passamaquoddy Bay. These waters are where her, her husband's and their dog's ashes will be spread. It was their most favorite place in the world to be. Her family will miss the many stories that she would tell, with vivid details, of her younger years in Eastport. Virginia was so very sad to have to leave her children, as well as, her dear friends at The Leach Home in Brewer. She had many friends there that were near and dear to her heart, especially Lorraine, Margaret, and Barbara. Her friendship with these lovely ladies certainly added much joy, fun, and laughter to her time there. The memories we have of Virginia are more valuable than gold. We'll remember her smile, her commentaries, and her stories from years ago. We'll remember her selfless and giving ways. Thank you for fiercely loving us and for always putting our needs ahead of your own. We will love you forever and miss you for always.

Surviving are three children, Ronald Boone, Jr and his wife, Peggy of Brewer, Gena Hebert of Plano, TX and Julie Meehan and her husband, Thomas of Brewer; seven grandchildren, Aaron Boone and his wife, Lee of Yarmouth, Elizabeth Breen and her husband, Matthew of Thomaston, Arwen Hebert of Plano, TX, Nicholas Hebert and his wife, Kristen of Frisco, Texas, Nathaniel Hebert of Yokosuka, Japan , Andrew Meehan and his wife, Hali of Eddington and Sarah Meehan and her fiance Cody Mello of Kittery; and nine great-grandchildren; two sisters, Doris Craig and Genevieve Wade both of Eastport. She was predeceased by her husband Ron of 67 years, as well as, siblings Gene, Alice, Ralph, Walter, Leo, Zeke, and Harry.
