Mary Matilda Fillmore
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mary Matilda Fillmore, 87, of Sackville, at the Westford Nursing Home, on Friday, August 7, 2020. Born in Centre Village, NB, Mary was a daughter of the late Ralph and Selena (Sears) Estabrooks.
Mary worked in various retail stores and taught ceramics as well as other crafts. In her spare time she would knit comfort dolls for the IWK. Mary and her husband, Lincoln, had once owned a hobby farm and took great pride in showing Shorthorn cattle for many years. She was a certified teacher for RHGNS and a lifetime member of the Women's Institute, as well as the Sackville Quilter's Guild.
She will be dearly missed by her daughter, Carol (Chuck) Smith, Sackville; a granddaughter, Cari-Ann (Cal Lewis) Melanson, Sackville; her sister, Ida Belle (Lorne) Wells; her brother, Lee (Ruth) Estabrooks; as well as several sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Besides her parents, Mary was predeceased by her husband, Lincoln Fillmore in 2008, as well as her brothers, Roland, Malcolm, Frederick, and Clinton.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Dr. G. Stewart and the staff of the Westford Nursing Home for their compassion and care for Mary during this time.
