Mary E. (Geary) Darling


Portland, ME - Mary E. (Geary) Darling, 87, of Old Orchard Beach and formerly of Yarmouth died on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at Maine Medical Center.  She was the wife of the late Frank A. Darling Jr. Who died in 1992.

Mary and Frank celebrated 35 years of marriage.  She and Frank loved going out into the Casco Bay on their boat and playing pool.  She worked for New England T&T and Desmond & Payne Insurance Co.  After her husband passed away, she went to work for Lindquist Funeral Home in Yarmouth.


Mary was an animal lover, having both cats and dogs over the years.  She enjoyed candlepin bowling, reading and walks on the beach.  Her family remembers her especially for her quick wit.
