Margaret W. Frizzle
This year’s Town Report is dedicated to Margaret W. (Roberts) Frizzle (Pop), a long time and active resident of Bowdoinham.
Margaret graduated from Lisbon High School in 1955, two years later she married Allan C. Frizzle Jr. The couple settled here in Bowdoinham where they raised their six children while being very active in the community. While her husband Allan is well known for his service as Fire Chief for the Bowdoinham Fire Department, Margaret was equally busy caring for and serving our community.
Margaret worked as a Bowdoinham mail carrier and answered the “red phone” in her home as a pre-911 dispatcher for the fire department. She also served the community as Pythia Sister, Brownie Leader, and member of the BFM Ladies Auxiliary, where she helped start the annual Thanksgiving Pie Sale. She selflessly did her part to supply support and raise funds for the BFM and its members. Her lifetime dedication and love for our community made her not only a role model but also a mentor for selfless service and community pride.
She will long be remembered and missed by a grateful community that was touched by her giving heart.
