Marty Weaver, 77, passed away Feb. 13, 2018. Marty was a woman of incredible energy, enthusiasm, intelligence and resilience. She will be sorely missed.

Marty was born in Wyoming, Ohio, on Oct. 22, 1940. She graduated from Wyoming High School, earned a degree in history from Carleton College, and remained an avid reader of history and politics. She later got a master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and became a children’s librarian.

Marty lived in Montana for over 25 years with her then husband Theodore (Tad) Weaver. There she raised two children and was a school board member. Marty moved to Belfast in 1997. She was the librarian for Lincolnville Central School, where she organized celebrations of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, conducted reading groups, and championed the school garden. In her free time, she embraced hiking, kayaking and walking her dog, Cubby. She was also a true political and environmental activist.

Marty was predeceased by her parents, Bruce and Virginia Strain, and her brother-in-law John Thomas Weaver.

Marty is survived by her son Theodore and daughter Molly, and her son-in-law, James Nichols; her siblings John Strain, David Strain and her twin brother Stephen Strain; her grandson Liam Nichols, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
