Honor the life of Olive C. Eldridge (Cordick) by planting a memorial tree. Planted in the area of greatest need

Brenda Rizzo

John, Brenda, Erin and Kathryn: The Campbell family is very sorry for the loss of your mother - grandmother. We have fond memories of many Thanksgiving dinners together. A quiet couple, Olive and John, were thrust into our parents home with sometimes 30 other people to enjoy the tons of food and noise, mostly laughter. Many visits occurred over the past ten years as old age brought the Eldridge cousins together. The men loved to share odd jobs and the girls their latest cakes or fruits. As each lost a spouse, many hours were spent on phone calls. We all will miss Olive as she enters heaven and reunites with John and their daughter once again. Much love from Robert, Brenda and Colleen and all of the Campbell family. A great loss of one of Kennebunkport"s old families.
