Portland, ME – Faye Marie Derrow, 61, of Buxton died on June 30, 2013 at Maine Medical Center after a long battle with vascular disease. She was the companion of Tony Clark.
She was born in Biddeford on January 12, 1952, a daughter of the late George O. & Bertha (Ham) McGinnis.
She was employed by the Bonny Eagle School District for many years and travelled between just about all of the schools in the district. She was affectionately known simply as “Mum” to many of the students. Her caring heart and watchful eye was greatly missed after being forced to retire due to illness.
Besides Tony, her partner, fishing buddy, and best friend, she is survived by her three sons Dean, Donald and Robert Derrow and their families. She had many siblings, and held Clayton, Jerry, Ginny, Randy and Francis, as well as several nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, close to her heart and always in her mind. She also leaves behind a numerous number of extended family, folks not related by blood, but who held a special place in Faye’s life.
Services will be private.
