Madlyn A. Wing Carr, 92, passed away at her home in Camden on March 21, 2013 after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer.

Born in Montville, April 6, 1920, with her twin brother; Maurice, Madlyn was the fourth and youngest daughter of Lucy and Clinton Wing.

Madlyn grew up in Liberty and graduated from Walker High School.

On Jan. 1, 1939, she married Sydney R. Carr of Rockand. They made their home in Camden where they raised their two sons, Luke and Alan.

Madlyn retired from the Department of Health and Human Services in the Homemaker Aide Program and as a casework aide working with children who had been placed in foster care as a result of abuse and neglect. Her compassion and strength of character made her especially well suited for these challenging occupations. Along the spectrum of life, both elderly and young children benefited from knowing Madlyn.

Madlyn was predeceased by her husband, Sydney who died in 2004 and her four siblings: Myrtle Simmons, Virginia Rossiter, Marjorie Bowen and her dear twin, Maurice Wing.

She is survived by her two sons, Luke and Alan, daughter-in-law, Jane of Camden; granddaughters Lucy Carr with partner Guy Martin of Antibes, France, and Melissa Carr with husband, Arthur Durity of Lincolnville; great-granddaughters Valentine and Fiona also of Antibes, France; nieces and nephews, Linda Brissette of Montville, Patricia Gladnick of Trenton, Fla., Joyce Buchanan of Waterloo, S.C., Darrell Bowen of Augusta and Tom Bowen of Morrill, Richard Rossiter of Islesboro, Donald Rossiter of Camden, and many dear and devoted longtime friends.

She gave us her whole heart with a love big enough to hold us all.

Interment will be Thursday, March 28, at 1 p.m. at Jewish Cemetery, Owls Head.

Memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or Adas Yoshuron Synagogue, Rockland, ME.
