HERMON – Marguerite J. Kelley, 77, wife of David L. Kelley, passed away unexpectedly, Sept. 26, 2013, at a Bangor hospital, surrounded by her family. She was born Dec. 8, 1935, in Dover-Foxcroft, the daughter of W. Eugene and Doris O. (Dulac) Demmons.
Marguerite was a dedicated mother, wife, and homemaker and enjoyed playing the guitar and singing.
