Marian E. Day

January 27, 1939 ~ February 10, 2022 (age 83)


Marian E. Day died on February 10th after a steady decline in health. She was born on January 27th, 1939. 
Marian was born in Cumberland and lived there for most of her life. She grew up on the family dairy farm and was a farm girl through and through. She was the daughter of Allan (Coke) and Mary Ella (Ross) Corey. She was the youngest of five children. She graduated from Greely Institute in 1957. She worked for RC Hazelton Company, Inc. where she met her husband Arthur R. Day whom she married on May 15th, 1965. After her daughters were grown, she worked in a physician’s office then again at RC Hazelton before retiring. Marian always had a love of horses and she and Arthur bought an old farm in Cumberland that they renovated where she continued to have horses and other animals. 
Family summer vacations were spent on Whetstone Pond in Abbot, Maine at Arthur’s brother’s camp. Marian and Arthur liked to go antiquing and take fall foliage rides. Marian loved to do decorative painting and had an annual Holiday Craft Fair for several decades. She taught decorative painting to many students. She was famous for her painted Christmas Ornaments and generously gave them to her nieces and nephews as well as her great nieces and nephews. Another annual tradition in her home around the holidays for many years was Christmas cookie decorating. There was always lots of laughter at the many gatherings at her home. They brought her great joy. Marian spent many hours each day watching a large variety of birds that she kept well fed. 
Marian is survived by her daughters Stacey L. Day of South Carolina, Rebecca D. Faherty of Kennebunk, stepson Monroe Day and his wife Jan of Windham and her grandsons Seamus Faherty, Matthew Day, Sr., and great-grandson Matthew Day, Jr. She is also survived by her sister Maryella Rawnsley of Gray and sister-in-law Barbara Corey of Yarmouth and many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband Arthur, parents, siblings Allan R. Corey, Anita C. Leavitt, and Nancy Williams, grandson Jason Day and her beloved 4-legged companion Tucker. Her wish was to remain at home until the very end. This was only accomplished with the help of family and many extraordinary friends. A special thanks to the team at Northern Lights Homecare and Hospice. 
A private celebration of her life will be held at a later date. Those that wish can make a donation in her honor to the Maine Audubon Society, 20 Gilsland Farm Rd., Falmouth, ME. 04105 or a charity of your choosing.
