Kathleen J. Humphrey

BENTON – Kathleen J. Humphrey, 82, died peacefully of natural causes on Jan. 25, 2022, in Bangor.

Kathleen was born on August 10, 1939, in East Benton, the daughter of the late Henry and Julia (Buker) Martin. She graduated from Lawrence High School and received her degree from Farmington State Teachers College. She worked for many years as a fabric stitcher for Health-Tex in Brunswick and retired early from L.L.Bean in Freeport. She committed her retirement years to taking care of her aging parents.

Kathleen raised three sons all on her own. Everything she accomplished and did was especially for them. She was adventurous, liked to travel, and had been through 48 of our states. She enjoyed sun bathing, reading, walking, and putting puzzles together.

She is survived by two sons, Gregory Humphrey and wife Stacy of Havelock, N.C. and Glenn Humphrey of Benton; 10 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; sister, Judith Shores of Oakland, brother, Henry Martin Jr. and wife Patricia of Benton; and several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents; her son, Jeffrey Humphrey; and a brother, Thomas H. Martin Sr., all of Benton.

A family committal will be held at a later date.
