Auburn - Marilyn M. "Bud" Logan, age 78 and longtime Auburn resident, passed away Monday morning, February 17th at Clover Manor. She was born in Lewiston September 24, 1935, a daughter of Richard and Dorothy (Bumpus) Merriam. She was educated in local schools, graduated from Edward Little High School and Farmington State Teachers' College where she attained her Bachelor's Degree in Education and began working in the Auburn School System and remained a lifelong resident of this community. On June 30, 1960, she married Ronald Logan. Together, as school teachers and education administrators, they settled on Vining St. in Auburn to work and raise their two boys Chris and Andy. Bud was a school teacher for more than 40 years with both the City of Auburn and Town of Monmouth. She taught grades 4 through 6 in the Auburn system for well over 20 years and then spent 16 years in the Monmouth system until her retirement. The latter 24 years were also spent working with her good friend and teaching partner Bob Driscoll. She was a member of West Auburn Congregational Church. Bud was dedicated to her profession and cared greatly about the personal success of her students. Being as involved as she was, a few years she even chaperoned trips to Ireland with her 6th grade students. Among Bud's most favorite enjoyments were special times with family and friends and spending many Summers at the family camp at Bailey Island and East Machias on Hadley Lake. She was a loving, devoted and hard-working wife, mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed. She leaves two sons Christopher Logan and his companion Renee Monnier of Gardiner and Andrew Logan and his companion Karen Files of Poland; two grandsons Cyrus Logan and Conor Sweeney; two sisters Margaret Ellsworth and husband Stanley of Topsham and Madelyn Merriam also of Topsham and several nieces and nephews.

Dear Chris & Andy,

I apologize that my condolences come late as Bud passed while I was on a Florida vacation. I am so sorry for your loss.

Your Mom was a fabulous teacher! I first met Bud when your Dad gave my husband, Bob, his very first teaching position at Central School. We then moved to your neighborhood and became great friends. Years later when I became Principal of Cottrell School I was looking for a dynamic team of two teachers for my upper level. I knew immediately who would be a good match for my team and hired Bud and Bob Driscoll. It was a pleasure to watch excellence at work and am happy to see that lasted 15 years!

Countless Auburn and Monmouth students have been blessed by your Mom's teaching, genuine concern, guidance, and tender care. May God now keep Bud in his tender care, as she truly deserves.

To the family of Marilyn Logan: I had the priviledge of knowing Marilyn when she was teaching in Monmouth. Both she and Bob Driscoll were such inspirations to me as a young teacher.They were a special team. I loved chatting with your Mom after school. She was so friendly and entertaining. Marilyn was a wonderful woman and a great teacher. She will be missed but has left an example to so many students and teachers. They will honor her memory for years and years to come. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Judy Mank (Winthrop ME)

Mrs. Logan had a profound ability to make anyone in her presence feel comfortable. She had a warm, down to earth personality with a delightful sense of humor and a twinkle in her eye. Growing up is difficult, especially during the teenage years, other than my own home, I have never felt so comfortable, loved and safe as I did at the Logan household. She brought joy with her wherever she went. I am just sure she is happy and free on the next part of her journey but we will all miss her immensely. My deepest condolences for your loss.

Chris and Family:
You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Bud's personality and enthusiasm could light up a room. Our families shared many experiences and lively conversations with her and Ron over the years. We were blessed to have them in our lives.

I was a student of Mrs. Logan for 6th grade at Central School. I remember having a lot fun in her class. What made her such a great teacher was her high level of expectation combined with humor!
