WEST BATH — Florence B. Seaman, 90, died April 23 at Winship Green Nursing Center surrounded by her family.
She was born in Boston on June 28, 1918, a daughter of Elmer and Barbara (Smith) Judkins, and was educated in Boston area schools.
On March 5, 1937, she married Harry Berry and they lived in Wiscasset until his death on Oct. 23, 1983. She married James Seaman on April 17, 1986, and made their home in West Bath for the last 8 years.
Over the years, she held many jobs, including waiting tables at the Ledges and Dodge Inn restaurants, working as a nurse’s aide at Bath Memorial Hospital, and later owning and operating a boarding and apartment house in Bath.
Her strong work ethic served as a great role model for her children, and she made sure they were hard-working and kind as well.
She was predeceased by her first husband, Harry Berry, sisters, Lillian Stevenson and Hazel Mathews, brothers, George Junkins and Elmer Junkins, and a great-grandson, Jeffrey Boucher.
Surviving are her daughter Ann F. Boucher and her husband Edward of Meriden, Conn., sons, Steven H. Berry and his wife Nancy of Vermont, Robert F. Berry and his wife Anita of Bath, and Dean G.
