Obituary:
Ethel Jenness Jewett, 94, of Fairhaven Avenue, Ferry Beach, Saco passed away peacefully on April 19, 2014 at the Seal Rock Healthcare Facility where she had been a resident for several months since suffering a severe fall and broken hip at her home.
She was born in Springvale, the daughter of Delbert and Bernice Jenness. She graduated from Sanford High school and work locally for several businesses before being appointed as Deputy Clerk of Courts for York County, a position in the York County Courthouse at Alfred she held for several years until after her marriage to Dean Jewett, a Buxton lawyer.
After settling into their new home in Buxton and raising two sons, she resumed working at the York County Courthouse, only now as an assistant in her husband's law office, researching land ownership in the York County Registry of Deeds and Registry of Probate until her husband closed his law office in Saco.
During the years her husband was in active practice and a member of the American Bar Association she enjoyed traveling with him to meetings in Hawaii, Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Atlanta and socializing with other wives in attendance.
She was a Life member and Past Worthy Grand Matron of Ruth Chapter #14 of the Order of the Eastern Star in Springvale. During her time in Buxton she was active in local organizations on gardening, home health and family. She was also a member of the First Congregational Church of Buxton, known locally as Tory Hill Church. When the church building needed repairs, she proposed issuing an annual church calendar with each month having a different picture of old time areas of Buxton and Hollis. The calendar was an instant success and for many years raised much needed funds for church expenses.
She was also one of the founders of the women only investment club called Powder Puff Investors that operated successfully for quite a few years.
After moving from Buxton to their new home at Ferry Beach for over 20 years she and her husband enjoyed the beach in the summer and lived in their Florida condo during the winter months.
She is survived by her husband of 61 plus years, her two sons, Martin and Timothy and one grandson Benjamin.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday April 23, 2014 at 2:00PM. at the Tory Hill Church by a burial in South Buxton Cemetery. Rev. Karen Christensen will officiate.
