June 4, 1928 ~ September 3, 2023 (age 95) 95 Years Old
We celebrate the life of Beverly Grace Trembley, born June 4, 1928 in Greenville, Maine. The oldest daughter of Madeline and Edward Jennings of Greenville, she passed away peacefully on September 3, 2023 surrounded by her children. A graduate of Greenville High School, Bev is survived by her sons Robert ‘Rocky’ Tremblay (Catherine), David Tremblay (Leona), Mark ‘Kip’ Tremblay (Jessica) and daughter Christine Bartley (William). She is also survived by her sister Marilyn (Dolly) Pelletier and Dolly’s children Debbie Tajmajer (Dave) and Carl Pelletier (Gail), her seven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren.
Beverly was predeceased by her loving husband of seventy-three years, Clifford ‘Kip’ Trembley,
While attending Greenville High School she was active in sports and once swam from the center of Greenville out to the mile marker and back. Bev’s father Edward, owned the general store now named Jamison’s (Jamo’s). After school she worked the soda fountain and always saved a spot for Kip who she married at the young age of 18. In her late teens and early twenties, Bev and her husband Kip lived in remote camps where Kip manned the ‘look-out’ towers, atop Boundary Bald and Williams mountains for the Maine Forestry Service. She often said that they were the best days of her life. Seeking higher paying work, Bev and Kip moved to Connecticut in 1959 where Bev was employed by Sikorsky Aircraft as a Key-Punch operator and Kip became an operating engineer for Blakeslee Construction.
During the 1960s, Kip and Bev were active member of a dive club, ‘The Barnacles’. While diving in Moosehead Lake, they retrieved the bell from the sunken ship ‘The Twilight’ and donated its’ bell to the Moosehead Maritime Museum. For mom, Greenville was always home and spent summers there upon retirement. She was proud to be a ‘plank owner’ for the Katahdin; Kip and Bev were often seen at Auntie M’s, where they could gaze at the ‘Kate’ while having breakfast. While in her sixties, Bev participated in the Senior Olympics, winning a gold medal for her marksmanship.
Bev was a direct descendant of Thomas Rogers who came over on the Mayflower and was among the original pilgrims who established New Plymouth and wrote the Mayflower Compact. Beverly Trembley’s life was well lived.
When tomorrow never comes, from this day until our last day, we will never forget her.
