Marcia Rose Adams, 81, died on December 5, 2017, in Machias. She was born on April 10, 1936, the daughter of the late Herbert and Pearl Rose of Yarmouth. She met and married the love of her life, John W. Adams on July 1, 1967, while working at Milliken Thomlinson IGA Foodliner's. John and Marcia resided in Westbrook where they raised three daughters, Darlene Marie, Christine MacLean, and Lisa Jean.
Marcia enjoyed camping with John and friends. Upon retiring, Marcia and John decided to spend the rest of their days together in Starboard, ME, in the house her father built over looking Starboard Cove. They would spend many mornings sitting on the deck with binoculars watching the comings and goings of neighbors and wild life. Marcia enjoyed knitting, and had a passion for playing cards, cribbage being her favorite. Marcia remained a lifetime member of the Amvets Post 6 in New Gloucester, Maine, and was also a member of the American Legion Post #9 in Machias volunteering her services where needed. She also volunteered at the Maine Veteran's Home in Machias, ME.

Gill; five grandchildren, Shawn, Samantha and husband, Michael, Jeffrey, Darren and Danene; six great-grandchildren, Gianna, Logan, Anthony, Olivia, Emersyn, and Jalyn. She is also survived by many wonderful nieces and nephews. And let us not forget her love for her great-grand-puppies, Chickie and Emma!
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, John; and a brother, Philip Rose of Starboard.
