Marion M. Allen, 93, of Wells ME, died Feb. 13, 2004, at the Sanford (ME) Health Care Facility. She was born in Stetson ME on Oct. 15, 1910, a daughter of Newton and Hattie (Prescott) Merrill.

She and her family moved to Wells from Hampden Highlands ME in 1952. They owned and operated the Green Lantern Motor Court on Route 1 in Wells for more than 40 years.

The most valuable facet in her life was her family and friends. She was a loving "encourager." She loved to sew, knit, and crochet. All of her life, children were special to her, so it was not surprising that she adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Lester Earlan Allen; brothers Everett, Ralph, Theodore, Harry, and Bill; and sisters Olive and Louise.

Surviving are her son Robert Allen of Haines City FL; daughters Wilma Baggesen and husband Walter of Miami FL, and Betty Hanson of Sanford ME; brother Clarence Merrill of Brunswick ME; grandchildren Stephen Allen, Jennifer Allen, Pamela De Varona, Bill Baggesen, Susan Baggesen, Kerry Hanson, and Dianne Bowen; and nine great-grandchildren.
