Martha Ann (Drowns) Buckley

BALDWIN – Martha Ann (Drowns) Buckley, 86, of Baldwin, went home to her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2023.

Born in Portland on Aug. 22, 1937, she was predeceased by her parents, Horace and Christine Drowns of Portland and Raymond. She graduated from Deering High School, class of 1955.

Martha was a hardworking, independent mother who was devoted to her five children. She was a faithful servant of God, very active in church and the Christian School. Martha inherited her father’s talent for baking, and her mother’s green thumb.

Martha is survived by her five children, Katrina (Richard) of Whispering Pines, N.C., Wanda (Norman-deceased) of Raymond, Todd (Laurie) of Baldwin, Heidi (Ken) of Dixmont, and Shawn (Theresa) of Baldwin, Ga. She is also survived by her beloved brothers Robert Drowns of San Diego, Calif. and Leon Drowns of Windham and Moxie.

Martha leaves behind 19 grandchildren; and 26 great-grandchildren whom will greatly miss “Grammy B,”; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Martha’s family would like to thank the compassionate staff of Woodlands Senior Living of Brewer. They just adored our mother showing her great compassion, attention, and kindness to her and all of us.
