June 29, 1947 ~ June 1, 2022 (age 74)


Paula D. Marsh, 74, of Sanford Road, passed away at home June 1, 2022.

She was born June 29, 1947 in Sanford, ME, daughter of Frank and Barbara (Tufts) Leslie and a 1965 graduate of North Berwick High School.  In 1977, Paula married Dennis Marsh.  They moved to Florida in 1986, staying for 15 years before becoming homesick.  While they were in Florida, Paula began her lifetime of caretaking, working as a home health aide.  As her husband’s eye sight failed, she cared for him until his death in 2009.

 Paula owned  Care-a-Lot Ceramics shop in Florida and  Wyre Brook  Ceramics in Maine.  Paula was very talented in sewing, crafting, ceramics and baking.  She sold her cakes on many occasions.  While the grandchildren were babies, they went to Grammy’s daycare until she was no longer able.  Her grandbabies were the center of her life.  Lately, she enjoyed her Perry Mason, MASH and Andy Griffith re-runs, over and over.

Paula was pre-deceased by her parents, husband Dennis; sister Bonnie Leslie and nephew Mickey Thompson.  She will be sorely missed by her son Aaron Marsh of Rochester; daughter, Deanna Marsh and fiancé Sean McWilliams of Sanford; 3 step-sons, Todd and Wendy Marsh of Rochester, Jeff Marsh of Sanford, Glenn and Hope Marsh of Colorado and whom she called her honorary son, Shawn Blanchette of North Berwick; 12 grandchildren, Jessica, Jacob, Jeff, Brandon, Alex, Ali, Carson, Dominic, Alexa, Sebastian, Maia and  Jocelynn and 2 great-grandchildren, Hannah and Harper as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
