Joan W. Hallowell, 66 of Nobleboro, passed away at her home on the morning of June 4th with her husband, Larry Hallowell, by her side after losing her battle with multiple myeloma. Born in Damariscotta on March 27, 1952, she was the daughter of Ralph and Abby (Brown) Welton.
Joan grew up in Damariscotta, attended local schools, and graduated from Lincoln Academy in 1970. She worked at Damariscotta Bank and Trust prior to beginning a long-standing career at Camp Kieve. There she developed life-long friends and enjoyed the Kieve community that she always held dear to her heart. She also served numerous posts for the Town of Nobleboro, working on the Board of Selectman, Planning Board, and Budget Committee as well as acting as the Treasurer and Town Clerk.
Joan had a wicked sense of humor and sharp wit that kept everyone on their toes. She fiercely loved her family and friends. . . almost as much as she loved the Beatles – particularly Paul McCartney. She was happiest when surrounded by her grandchildren, husband, and children. She enjoyed baking her famous apple pies and cakes for birthdays and family gatherings.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her siblings, Jon Welton, Paul Welton, and Ann Libby.
She is survived by her husband, Larry Hallowell; her brother, Robert Welton, and his wife, Sandy Welton; her two sons, Brent Hallowell, together with his wife Becky Hallowell, and Brian Hallowell, together with his wife Michele Hallowell; her three beloved grandchildren, Carson Hallowell, Nate True, and Sam True; her granddog, Penny; as well as several nieces and nephews.
