OBITUARY

Marie Lois Garnett Crafts

June 28, 1941December 14, 2020

LISBON FALLS – Marie Lois (Mason) Garnett Crafts, 79, went home to be with her Lord, Jesus on Monday, December 14, 2020. She was born on June 28, 1941 in Phippsburg, ME to the late Clarence and Lois (Haley) Mason. She married Richard Garnett on March 7, 1959 and together they raised a large family and celebrated 56 years of marriage until his passing. She married John Crafts on January 28, 2018 and they journeyed their twilight years together enjoying each other’s company over dinner, trips to Florida, a drive up the coast of Maine, or just relaxing at home. She was a proud homemaker whose foremost mission was the care of her husband and children. Her quiet and gentle disposition was the underpinning of the family home, without which chaos would surely have swallowed up the lot. Many a winter night, when the children would saunter in, cold and wet from an afternoon of sledding, the waffle iron would be hot with batter ready to pour, filling the house with the indisputable smell of hot butter and maple syrup. Often, she would feed more than her own tribe as friends and neighborhood kids alike would seek out an invitation for a portion of her famous lasagna or spaghetti. When time and energy allowed, her attention and affection was poured into her flowers and birds, caring tenderly for them as if they were given to her by God Himself. Above all she had an unshakable faith overflowing with meekness, gentleness and grace. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her second husband John Crafts of Lisbon Falls and her children; Gregory and Cheri Garnett of Lisbon Falls, Vicki and Henry Cooper of Chesterville, Nancy and Ronald Shank of Maryland, Jeffrey and Martha Garnett of Lisbon Falls, Kimberly and Gregory Bokash of New Jersey and Andrew and Lyndsaye Garnett of Sabattus. She also leaves behind 15 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren as well as her sister Mary Rand. She was predeceased by her brother Paul Mason, her sister Louise Mason, her first husband Richard Garnett, and her daughter Carrie (Garnett) Haskell. Condolences and fond memories may be shared at www.crosmanfuneralhome.com Her celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 11:00 AM at the Lisbon Falls Baptist Church, 555 Lisbon Street, Lisbon Falls, ME 04252.

My thoughts and prayers and hugs go out to Greg, Nancy, Vicki, Jeff, Kim and Andrew and all the grands and greats. Aunt Marie exuded beauty and class wherever she went. She was a very patient and understanding soul and a great source of strength for me and my family when we lost our mom. She will forever be my favorite Aunt! Much love to all the family.

Kim, I am sorry for you and your siblings.

My first thought is of going to Dunn's camp to see the whole family every summer.

I loved this special lady.We were in the Widows Ministry together.We had special moments together.We shared many personal things together.When I met Marie we had a instant connection.I loved her gentle and quiet spirit.We learned alot from each other.After she married and I also married again we did not get to see each other that much but through phone chats now and then we were able to check on each other.She will be greatly missed but on what she is expereincing right now is what she longed for.I am so thankful the time we had together even thought it was short.John and her children are truly blessed to have had her as a mother and wife.Going to miss her.But one day I'll see her again.

I have many many fond fun memories of Aunt Marie...spending the night when I was little and playing hard with all my cousins...it was always a good time...in recent years she was a rock to me and my sisters just being there with her quiet sweet ways ...knowing just what to say exactly when we needed to hear it ....catching her many times on her walks past my house would sometimes turn into hour long conversations....she was dearly loved and always looked for the good in everything....having many of her own heartbreaks still showed much grace and class through it all...i will miss her greatly...my love to all my cousins at this sad time....may you find peace❤Love Jenny Bill and family

I think of my aunt Marie and I can’t help but smile as I recall some fond memories of my childhood. Playing hide & seek on warm summer nights, throughout the neighborhood on Blethen St. with all my double-cousins and anyone who wanted to join, and there were always others ready and willing! Swimming in her pool while auntie Marie doted on her flowers and veggies while trying to wrangle us all and keep us from cannon balling each other til near drowning...
A strong shoulder to lean on during a difficult time. Her warm quite way.
Thank You Aunt Marie ❤️
