Waterville--Marcia J. Durrell (Hamblet) Doherty died July 13, 2021 at the age of 92 surrounded by her children at Oak Grove Center. Marcia was born in Kingfield, Maine, the daughter of Elvin and Hilda (Nichols) Durrell. She grew up on the family farm with her three brothers, Elvin Jr., Carlton, and Roscoe (Mickey). Marcia attended Kingfield schools and graduated from Kingfield High School in 1947. She fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming a nurse when she graduated from Central Maine Medical Center School of Nursing in Lewiston, Maine in 1950.\r\n\r\nMarcia worked in various nursing roles, but the majority of her career (32 years) was at Waterville Osteopathic Hospital (Northern Light Inland Hospital). She said she worked in every department except the furnace room and kitchen. She retired in 1989 but continued to work part time at Dr. Amalfitano’s office and in private homes. Marcia was a nursing legend to many of her patients and colleagues. She touched people’s lives in their most vulnerable moments and stepped in when needed. \r\n\r\nMarcia enjoyed reading, cooking, traveling, knitting and gardening throughout her life. She was always busy doing one of her hobbies and enjoyed any travel, whether five miles or five thousand miles. Her greatest joy, love and pride were her children. She made sure each had a strong foundation to grow upon and was an anchor in their lives. \r\n\r\nMarcia was predeceased by her brothers Junior and Carlton, and her husband Clifford (Mike), three of her grandchildren Hilda, Dorothy and Elijah Howe and son-in-law Jim Maheu. \r\n\r\nMarcia is survived by her children Jackie Hamblet Berlandi (Peter) of Plymouth, MA; Michael Hamblet (Carol) of Knox, ME; Roylynn Hamblet of Vienna, ME; Marcia Hamblet Maheu (Mark Scribner) of Dresden, ME and Gayle Doherty Roy (Ken) of Rosemount, MN; and her brother Roscoe Durrell of Largo, FL. \r\n\r\nShe was a loving grandmother to Jennifer White; Jason and Nathan Hamblet; Clara Howe and Hayden, Silas and Evelyn Roy. Marcia was also an aunt, great grandmother and great great grandmother. She is survived by two very dear friends, Theresa LePage and Carol Boardman. \r\n\r\nThe family would like to thank the entire staff at Oak Grove Center who aided and cared in making Marica’s last three years of life fun, active and safe. \r\n\r\nA graveside service will be held at Sunnyside Cemetery in Kingfield, Maine on Saturday, August 21 at 11AM.
