Lebanon, Maine – Alice Milliken, 86 formerly of Eliot, Maine died October 14, 2012 at her son’s home in Lebanon after failing health.
She was born November 7, 1925 to Frank and Carrie (Fielding) Browne in Revere, Massachusetts.
She worked for years as a waitress on Revere Beach in Revere, Massachusetts.
Alice’s greatest passion was her family and friends. She had an open door policy, no matter where she was at camp in Sanford, she would cook breakfast and supper for everyone. There could be up to 20 – 30 people, then sit by the campfire for hours telling stories, singing songs, playing games and cooking marshmallows.
Her love of travel took her and husband, Ken on a six week RV trip across country with her brother, Russell and his wife Frances along with two aunts, Dot and Ruth, visiting 45 states.
They also spent many years in Florida for the winter going to Daytona Beach and Key West. Always inviting everyone to come stay with them.
She loved taking care of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren watching them play and teaching them how to play cards and games. Cards was her greatest passion, playing with her husband for hours.
She is predeceased by her husband, Kenneth, son Kenneth, grandson, Ronald and brothers and sisters.
Survivors include her son, James Milliken and his wife, Paula of Lebanon; daughters, Judith Hill and her husband, John of Berwick and Peggy Edge and her husband, Dennis of Berwick; Kathy Milliken, wife of deceased son, Kenneth of Lynn, Massachusetts; grandchildren, Kenneth, James, Melanie, Shanon, Brian, Dennis, Melissa, Derek, Natalie and Dean; and 15 great grandchildren.
Alice was a loving and caring wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother. She will be missed by all and be remembered by all with a smile.
The family would like to thank Wentworth Hospice. Without the staff, we couldn’t have gotten through this difficult time. They are truly angels on earth. We are forever grateful.
Funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family.
