OWLS HEAD – Helen L. Carver, 83, wife of the late Robert Linwood Carver, transitioned from her earthly home to her Heavenly home, Thursday, February 21, 2019.

Born in Rockland, August 20, 1935, she was the daughter of Forest R. and Mabel A. Emmons Pinkerton. Educated in local schools, she was a 1953 graduate of Rockland High School.

Helens’ first employment was with the First National Bank of Rockland, where she worked a few years.
Following her marriage to Robert, at Rockland, November 11, 1956, the couple moved to Hollywood, Florida. Helen busied herself there as a devoted homemaker, raising her three children.

In 1968, with her family, Helen moved to Bangor as Robert transferred with the A&P Grocery, to their Bangor location. In 1977, the family moved to Owls Head after Robert purchased Carvers Market, which was located in the Block at Thomaston. She assisted her husband in the operation of that store until selling the business in 1989. Thereafter, Helen worked at Ames Department Store in Rockland, until her retirement in 2000.

For the past several years, Helen was an active member of the Owls Head Baptist Church. Even after mobility difficulties kept her from regular attendance at the church, she continued to serve by sending all occasion cards to members of that fellowship.

Other than her parents, Helen was pre-deceased by her husband Robert in 2012; her siblings, Agnes E. ‘Betty’ Russell in 2003, Alice Reed in 2009 and William Pinkerton in 2005. She is survived by her children, Robert L. Carver of Bath, Glenn L. Carver of McMinnville, TN, Lucinda M. Carver of Tucson, AZ; four grandchildren, Linda Fitzgerald, Sarah Carver, Glennda Remelius and Michael T. Carver; four great-grandchildren, Zachary Adreena Fitzgerald, Neveah Carver and Samantha Carver; many nieces and nephews, as well as extended family members.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00am, Friday, March 1, 2019, at Owls Head Baptist Church, 37 South Shore Drive, Owls Head. Interment will be at a later date in Evergreen Cemetery, Owls Head. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Owls Head Baptist Church, P.O. Box 81, Owls Head, ME 04854. To share a memory or story with Helen’s family, please visit their online Book of Memories at www.bchfh.com. Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

Oh, Helen.....I will miss you so! It has been a pleasure to get to know you the last several years. You always had a smile on your face when I saw you. You were always upbeat and positive and enjoyed the company. I enjoyed grocery shopping for you, helping you straight up around the house, taking you to doctor’s appointments (my hubby John helped me with that), interacting with you at church, or just sitting and visiting with you in your home. It won’t be the same when I get to Maine in May, but I will think of you fondly when I drive by your house on my way to church. I will miss our visits, but I know you are now in the comfort of the Lord and with your loving husband, Robert again. Oh, what a wonderful place to be! All my love, Jeanne

This is a tragic and senseless loss. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
I remember Helen fondly from when she and her husband Robert owned Carvers Market. When I shopped at the market, she was always friendly and cheerful and often asked how my teaching job was going.
