Obituary

LAMOINE- Virginia “Ginny” Eaton, 88, went to be with her Lord on January 11, 2020, with her family by her side. She was born at home, in Hulls Cove, on August 30, 1931, the daughter of Elwood and Emily (McKay) Hanscome.
After graduating from Bar Harbor High School in 1949, Ginny met the love of her life, Almond “Buddy” Eaton. This would be the start of nearly 70 years of marriage. Ginny and Buddy made their home in Lamoine raising 4 children. She was a loving, caring, giving woman, opening her home to anyone in need.
Ginny worked at AT&T, as a telephone operator, for 30 years. Starting at the Ellsworth office and retiring at the Bangor office. She spent countless hours traveling that “damn” Bangor Road, every day with her best friend, Mima Grindle. Ginny retired at the age of 56, giving her time to spend doing things she loved. She loved spending summers at her camp, on Molasses Pond, when her boys were young. Summer was her favorite time of year. You would often find her on her riding lawn mower, maintaining her lawns, fields and beautiful flower gardens. She found joy in remodeling the inside and outside of her house over and over again. Ginny loved the beach, basking in the sun and collecting sea glass. Ginny’s family was most important to her. She followed all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s activities, hosted many picnics and football parties and enjoyed visiting extended family on “The Island”. She was a caregiver to young and old alike, who would drop everything when someone needed her. Ginny loved to travel with her friends. She loved her church, The Church of Our Father in Hulls Cove, enjoying many get-togethers with her close friends, The Bible Babes.
Ginny is survived by her loving husband Buddy; daughter, Jane Shea and husband, Stephen; sons, Bruce and wife, Linda, Allie Eaton, III, and Kenny Eaton of North Dakota; grandchildren, Jennifer Shea-Giffin and husband, Joel, Missy Shea and her partner, Jason Heckman, Anthony Eaton and his partner, Jocelyn Carter, Jesse Eaton and wife, Lisa, and Kristopher Eaton and his partner, Kayla Boone; great-grandchildren, Emily and Sam Giffin, Madeline and Lydia Hart, and Donavin Eaton; sister, Helen Douglas; sister-in-law, Jeanette Hanscome; many nieces and nephews; special nephew, Eddie Douglas and wife, Peggy; and very special neighbors, David and Vicki Smallidge.
In addition to her parents, Ginny was predeceased by her brother, Bobby Hanscome.
The family would like to thank the staff at Courtland Living Center and Northern Lights Hospital in Ellsworth for their wonderful care given to Ginny at the end of her life. They would also like to thank her sister, Helen for all of the care and love that she gave during this time.
Those who wish to remember Ginny in a special way are encouraged to make gifts in her memory to, The Church of Our Father, 91 ME-3 Bar Harbor, Maine 04609.
A memorial service on will be held 11 a.m., Saturday, January 18th, 2020 at The Church of Our Father in Hulls Cove, with Regina Christianson, officiating. A reception will immediately follow the service. Condolences to the family may be expressed at Memorial-Alternatives.com
