CARY – M. Marguerite Simpson, 103, went to be with her Lord on Nov. 13, 2013, in her home with her family at her side. She was born Oct. 9, 1910, in Houlton, the daughter of John H. and Alberta (Saunders) Perrigo.
Marguerite was a member of the Houlton Church of Christ. She was a role model for all who knew her, always placing others before herself. She had a great sense of humor and an extremely keen mind, reading her Bible daily and playing scrabble into her 104th year.

Simpson of Germantown, Md., Brent West Jr. of Stockton Springs, Joel West of Clifton, Dawn Porter of Amity, Royce Quint of Hodgdon, Keith Quint of Machais, Philip Quint of Hodgdon and Gina Parent of Hodgdon; as well as many great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; and several special nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 69 years, Millard; her daughter, Marie Eagle; an infant son, Leland; brothers, Harrison, Leland, Kenneth, and Earl; and sisters, Marion Moore, and Lela Geraldine Mallet. Her family would like to express sincere thanks to her doctor, Ted Sussman, MD, special friend Lynette Bell, RN, as well as her many caregivers from Aroostook Home Health.
