Old Orchard Beach

Frances Regina Eastman, 81, longtime resident of Old Orchard Beach, died peacefully in her sleep at the Kennebunk Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Tuesday, July 02, 2019.

Frances was born June 27, 1938 in Waterville, the daughter of Carroll Merton and Iona Elsie Ryan Witham, and is a graduate of Bath Schools.

She was employed by the former New England Telephone and Telegraph, starting as an operator and at the time of her retirement worked in the front office, after 30 years of employment. Most recently, Frances worked for Hannaford’s in Saco.

An active lady, she was a member of the Red Hat Society, Ladies Auxiliary in Old Orchard Beach, loved to go to the beach, baking for her family, playing bingo, and as an avid reader, always had 3-4 books that she read at the same time.

Front and center in France’s life was her family, whom she loved to dote over and express her love in many ways, especially with her time.

She is predeceased by her husband Gerald Eastman.

Survivors include her son Gerald Eastman Jr and his wife Tara of Peyton, CO, three daughters Terry Tomzick of Stockholm, NJ, Tammy Lowery of Augusta, and Kimberly Thayer and her husband Robert of Kennebunk, 13 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.

A graveside service will be held 1 PM Friday, July 12, 2019 at Laurel Hill Cemetery, Beach Ave, Saco. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to the Animal Welfare Society, PO Box 43, West Kennebunk, ME. 04094.

As one of her step daughters Fran was in my life since I was about 10 years old. As a child I spent a lot of weekends there with her , my father and my siblings. One memory that I will never forget was that the whole family, ( 8 of us} all crammed into Fran's yellow VW bug to see some friends of the family.
