MADDIE HUNTINGTON KENDUSKEAG - Our beloved Maddie went home to the Lord June 21, 2002. Maddie was born July 26, 1928, the daughter of Maggie (Tinker) and Roland V. Newman of Campobello Island, New Brunswick. Maddie and Herb were married Nov. 14, 1947. They built their first home in Eastport in 1950. In 1955, they moved to Milford and built a new home for their family in the late 1950s. In 1968, they built the County Road Store in Milford, and owned and operated it for 25 years. She was greatly admired and respected by all her loyal customers and friends, and widely known for her baked goods, her generosity and kindness, and her love for all children. After they retired, they spent their winters in South Carolina with their daughter, Elaine and family, and enjoyed summers at their camp in Maine. Recently they made their home with their daughter, Donna and her husband, Rob in Kenduskeag. Maddie was devoted to her husband, children and grandchildren and was adored and loved by all of them. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 55 years, Herbert B. Huntington.
