I tried looking up your relative's obituary at the Maine State Library today but I could not find it. I tried the Lewiston Evening Journal, the Morning Sentinel and the Wilton Times. Those were the only newspapers they had that could possibly have an obituary from the Farmington area. Sorry.

Thank you so much for looking for me. In 1952 the year before she died she is listed in Portland, Maine, in a city directory. Would the newspapers you viewed have had her obit had she died in Portland?
