Hildreth M. Palmer died April 20, 2008, her 98th birthday, at PacifiCare Home in Dana Point, Calif. She was born in Bangor, Maine, a daughter of the late William and Lenna Matheson.

Upon graduation from the University of Maine, she married fellow graduate, Edward E. Palmer Jr. of Braintree, Mass., in 1934. After several moves, they settled on Cherry Lane in Glenside.

They were well-known in the neighborhood for their beautiful garden, particularly spring flowers. "Dutchie," as she was known, raised several varieties of irises. She volunteered many years on the fundraising committee of the Glenside Library.

Following the death of her husband in 1990, she moved to Dana Point, Calif., to be near her daughter, Carol. She is survived by daughters Carol Leone of Laguna Niguel, Calif., and Cynthia McLean of Loudon, Tenn.; nine grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Private services will be held in July at the family cemetery in Bridgton, Maine.
