Carol Lougee

Carol B. Lougee, 75, of Kennebunkport passed away peacefully on Oct. 3, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with lung cancer surrounded by family.

Carol was born July 23, 1940, the daughter of George Merritt Beers and Carol Farnham Beers. She grew up in North Haven, Connecticut, and graduated from Quinnipiac College in 1962.

After settling in Madison, Connecticut, she began working for the probate court. There she worked as probate clerk for 18 years before being elected by the community to serve as probate judge in 2002. She finally retired from the court in 2006.

In 2010 she moved to Kennebunkport to be closer to her grandchildren. While a resident of Kennebunkport she was active with the Senior Center where she taught knitting and played cards weekly. She graciously volunteered her time to many organizations including the Catholic church and American Legion. She enjoyed gardening and bird watching. She was a nature lover and enjoyed spending time by the ocean.

Carol’s greatest joy was spending time (and spoiling) her grandchildren, Brendan Ross, Cooper Samson and Tyler Samson.

She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Harold D. Lougee; her children, Robert F. Ross and his wife Beth Ross of Sudbury, Massachusetts, Dana Samson and her husband James Samson of Kennebunkport, and Alden E. Lougee of Provincetown, Massachusetts, as well as her sister, Patricia Fleming of Nantucket, Massachusetts.

A service was held on Sunday, Oct. 11 at Bibber Memorial Chapel, Kennebunk and followed by a gathering at Atlantic Hall in Kennebunkport. A celebration of her life will also be held the weekend of Oct. 24 in Connecticut. Details will be posted on her Caring Bridge site.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Senior Center, 175 Port Road, Kennebunk, ME 04043 or Hospice of Southern Maine, 180 US Route 1, Suite 1, Scarborough, ME 04074.
