    Notes 

    • A Memory of Marjorie (Morgan) Wyman by Freeman Wright:

      Marjorie (Morgan) Wyman was born Jan. 24, 1925 in Caribou
      The daughter of Clyde and Blanche (Pike) Morgan
      The Morgans were a very talented and musical family
      Who spent many Sundays and evenings around the piano & organ

      Clyde & Blanche Morgan were blessed with four daughters
      Named: Arlene, Regna, Ruth and Marjorie
      Clyde Morgan their Dad was a prominent businessman
      Who left an indelible mark on Caribou's early history

      Marjorie's father was part owner, of Morgan's Funeral Home
      The first to be established in Caribou, the year 1898
      Which is now known as the Lancaster-Morgan Funeral Home
      A prominent & respected funeral home, from that early date

      Clyde & Blanche were active members, of the United Baptist Church
      Their girls were also active, becoming members one by one
      Ruth is the only remaining active member, at this time
      They were all quiet and friendly girls, known by everyone

      Marjorie was always a pleasant person to talk to
      Which is a characteristic of Marjorie and her sisters as well
      It was a trait they inherited from their mother
      As those that knew Blanche (Pike) Morgan, will tell

      Marjorie attended the grammar schools in Caribou
      Graduated from Caribou High School in 1942
      She graduated with Rex Wyman, whom she would later marry
      They met at a birthday for Marjorie, that Rex was invited to

      After graduating, Marjorie worked for the Potato Inspection Office
      Rex went into the United States Air Force in 1943
      Later after receiving his training, Rex was sent to England
      He was assigned to B-24's in England, serving his country

      Rex was sent home just before the war was over in Germany
      He was given a thirty day furlough after returning home
      Was stationed at Pratt AFB in Kansas, when they were married
      Rex was reassigned to the Pacific, where he was later flown

      They were married in the living room of Marjorie's parents
      Her sister Dorothy's wedding also took place in their home
      Marjorie was the last of the Morgan girls to be married
      For the first time in years, Clyde & Blanche were now alone

      Rex was sent by the Air Force to serve in the Pacific
      While stationed there, Rex was assigned to B-29's
      It was from a B-29 that the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan
      Which brought an end to the Pacific conflict, in a short time

      Rex returned to the United States, after the war was over
      Was discharged from Fort Devens in 1946, returning home
      For Marjorie and the Wyman family, there was a sigh of relief
      Especially for Marjorie, who would no longer be alone

      Rex and Marjorie built a house, on Page Avenue extension
      Actually Marjorie lived on Page Avenue, all of her life
      It was there she was born, at the home of her parents
      Grew up, went to school, married, becoming a devoted wife

      Rex worked for awhile, in the A&P Grocery Store
      Then worked for Gradon Lombard for 12 & 1/2 years
      Went on his own, repairing and rewinding electric motors
      His electrical expertise was well known, by all his peers

      God blessed Rex & Marjorie with a daughter "Gail" Oct. 23, 1948
      It was "Melissa" April 4, 1952 when God blessed them once more
      If they were praying for a son, their prayers were answered
      With the birth of a son "Scott", who was born July 21, 1954

      Marjorie no longer worked for the Potato Inspection Office
      Her place as a good mother, was with her children at home
      Her children remember her love and "tender loving care"
      From the time they were born, until they were fully grown

      Marjorie and Rex had a place for relaxing on hot summer days
      They built a camp for themselves & the children at Madawaska Lake
      They spent much time there, while the children were growing up
      The cool water on a hot summer day, wasn't hard to take

      Marjorie went to the old hospital for an operation in 1957
      Her sister Regna has broken a leg and was also admitted there
      The hospital placed them together, to share the same room
      Making their stay more enjoyable, their burdens easier to bear

      Marjorie and Rex enjoyed traveling after the children were married
      They made many trips to visit their daughters, who had moved away
      Especially during the times, their husbands were in the service
      Those trips leave precious memories, Rex & the girls share today

      They were fortunate to have their son Scott, remain in Caribou
      He, his wife Elizabeth and children, are still living here
      Melissa also lived nearby, before moving to Greenville, Maine
      Marjorie kept in touch with them all, down through the years

      Marjorie accepted the Lord at an early age
      Became a member of the United Baptist Church of Caribou
      Marjorie was baptised April 12, 1936
      In the old chapel baptismal, that her sisters went through

      God gave Marjorie a good and loving husband
      To Rex, Marjorie was a loving and devoted wife
      She loved her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren
      They meant so much to Marjorie, they were her life!

      Marjorie not only said she loved her children, but showed it
      She remained in contact with them, even after they were grown
      That same love carried on and wa extended to others in need
      Through cards, notes and meals, from their home

      Marjorie's son Scott said: "Mom was the nicest lady I ever met
      She was not only nice to her family, but nice to all"
      Marjorie displayed a pleasant attitude, to everyone she met
      In her home, love and kindness was shared, to all who called

      Marjorie was born and brought up, in a good Christian home
      She and her three sisters, were a "close knit" family
      They made it a point, to meet often after they were married
      They now have children of their own and their own "family tree"

      One of Marjorie's most enjoyable hobbies, was playing bridge
      She was faithful to a group of ladies, who met every week
      I remember seeing them often, meeting at Yusef's Restaurant
      Enjoying a time of fellowship and something to eat

      Marjorie enjoyed playing the piano in her home
      Sharing her musical talent, a carry over from the Morgan family
      Marjorie made everyone feel good, by just talking with her
      Something about Marjorie, brought out the good in everybody

      Those that knew Marjorie, could see the love of God through her
      Her faith in God, was recognized by all whom she met
      A faith recognized, by her attributes and character
      Her smile and "soft spoken voice", we shall never forget!

      Marjorie suffered much, the last few weeks of her life
      She was in and out of the hospital, here and in Bangor, Maine
      She now has a perfect life, a perfect body & in a perfect place
      A place where we are promised, there will be no more "suffering or pain"
