Shirley Mae Marr Milligan
July 1, 1926 - March 18, 2013

Shirley Mae Marr Milligan, 86, of Boothbay Harbor, died March 18 at Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta. She was born July 1, 1926 in Southport to Thomas and Wilma Morton Marr.

Shirley was in charge of the Boothbay Region High School Alumni Association for many years. She was an avid and competitive bowler and was a collector of post cards, stamps and coins.
