Obituary

BREWER - Elizabeth “Jo” Joan Marquis, 93, wife of the late Alfred “Fred” John Marquis, died peacefully in her Brewer home on June 9, 2020. She was born on July 22, 1926, in Bangor, the daughter of Ira and Elizabeth (Clark) Durgain.

Jo entered the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps in 1942 and graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1945. The war ended before she was stationed overseas and she continued working in the nursing field until her retirement from Eastern Maine General Hospital in 1985. Jo was a voracious reader of mysteries and we believe she read every mystery book in the Bangor Library.

She was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and would spend many hours playing pool with friends and members.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by husband, Fred; and brother, Fredrick Durgain.

Surviving are her daughter, Linda and husband, Perry Speaker, of Hermon; two sons, Terry Marquis, of Brewer, and Brian and wife, Gini Marquis, of Brewer; her grandchildren, Jack Wagner, and Myrna Engel; and great-grandchild, Joel Wagner; plus several nieces and nephews. Jo will be sadly missed by all her family, friends and pets.

A Graveside service will be held 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at Mount Hope Cemetery, Bangor, with the Rev. Dr. Rex Garrett officiating. Relatives and friends are invited to meet 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, at the Superintendents Lodge, State Street Entrance, Bangor. Condolences may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com .
