Belgrade, ME: Mayna Elizabeth Mithee Damren, passed away at her Belgrade home Wednesday October 28, 2015 in the care of her loving family.\r\n \r\nBorn in Norwich, CT to Eldred Mithee & Maryellen Paradise Cronin. Mayna grew up in Oakland & Fairfield Center, Maine. She graduated from Lawrence high school in class of 1953. At 19 she married her true love Richard “Dick” Damren and were happily married 51 years. They made their home in North Belgrade and raised 3 children. \r\n\r\nMayna worked many places in her lifetime, some of which included Hathaway, State of Maine Liquor Commission, and Amhi. She and Dick ran Damren’s Store in Belgrade, ME for 10 years. Her first loves were her family, friends and her animals. She also enjoyed the ocean, volunteering at the humane society, bird watching, and spending time at her camp on Great Pond. Mom was one of the first people I know to help others when in need whether it be getting a benefit supper going, or making a meal to help someone having a rough time in life. She instilled kindness and compassion in her family so deeply. She was able to live the remainder of her life at home because of her daughter Sue and granddaughter Dez.\r\n\r\nSpecial thanks to Dr. Amy Madden, Mainely Elder Care of Oakland, ME (Cathy Lawler, Ann Welch, and Hannah Marcia have been her earth angels), Lacey Real and all the staff at Health Reach, and Peter Stevens who took special care of Mayna. \r\n\r\nMayna leaves behind her daughter & caretaker Susan Damren, daughter Judy Damren Hallowell, son Richard Damren Jr & girlfriend Donna Boudreau, Granddaughter Desiree Damren, grandson Jeremy Damren & his partner Thomas Stinson, grandson Scott Damren & wife Kate, grandson Conrad Shaw, and sister Patricia Packard, granddaughter Lisa Strutin, granddogger Miley and sweet dog Lola. \r\n\r\nShe is pre-deceased by her husband Richard Damren Sr, father Eldred Mithee, her aunt Marion Mithee, and her son-in-law David L Hallowell.
