Beverly A. Boivin, 81, died unexpectedly, Wednesday January 1, 2020, at Pen Bay Medical Center in Rockport after a period of declining health.

Born in Damariscotta, she was the daughter of Ward M. and Murial Teirlila Ralph.

Beverly’s life revolved around her children and grandchildren. She spent her days caring for and loving the people around her; she was the type of woman that always put others before herself. She loved gardening, bird watching, having lunch at the St. George River Café, reading and writing. She also enjoyed volunteering at the local schools, attending sporting events for her grandchildren and having coffee with her friends.

During her life, Beverly worked as a caregiver for many families and enjoyed her years as a homemaker. She also spent time working with local fishermen cleaning and restocking their boats.

She will be remembered for her selflessness, her big heart and her ability to light up the room with her smile. Above all else, she loved her family fiercely.

Other than her parents, Beverly was predeceased by son Randy; sisters Betty, Marion and Ethelyn; and grandson Danny. She is survived by son Robert McMahan of Owls Head; daughters Tammy Grindle of Cushing and Linda Hartford of Owls Head; grandchildren Donald and girlfriend Caitlyn, Brooke and boyfriend Nate, Hannah, Alan Jr., Erica and husband Justin, Elena, Gabrielle, Tanya, Herbert, Stephen, and Devan; and great grandchildren Nettle, Ivan, Sarah, Michael, Jasmyn and Jeremy Jr.
