YARMOUTH -- Margery B. Groves, 87, of Yarmouth, died Wednesday June 7, 2006.

She was born September 27, 1918, on Cousins Island, a daughter of Seth B. Groves and Agnes (Carlson) Groves.

Margery graduated from North Yarmouth Academy, Class of 1936. She went on to nursing school in Massachusetts and became an RN. Soon after she served as an Army nurse during WWII and was stationed in England, France, and Germany and was honorably discharged as a captain.

After the war, she continued her education in nursing at BU and went on to work in Portland for the Department of Human Services, from which she retired after many years of service. Margery had a strong and independent character that was grounded in service to others. Not only did she take care of DHS client families but also her own family, especially her mother and father, her aunt, Ethel Groves, who lived to be 103, and her cousin, Louis.

Margery is survived by her brother, Franklin Groves and his wife, Caroline of Yarmouth; brother-in-law Ken Carlin; sisters-in-law Ruth Groves and Celine Groves; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Clarence, Arthur, and Oscar; and her sister, Doris.

There will be a gathering of family and friends from 10:30 to 11 a.m. for a brief period of visiting and consolation on Monday, June 12, 2006, at Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth. The funeral service will begin at 11 a.m., also at the funeral home, with the Rev. Carra Bradt officiating. Burial will then follow in Cousins Island Cemetery.
