PORTSMOUTH – Ellen M. Tufts, 108, of Portsmouth, N.H., entered the arms of her loving Savior on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at Portsmouth Hospital. She was born on January 28, 1912 to Lawson and Juliette Edwards Megquier of Gray, Maine.
Ellen graduated from Pennell Institute in 1929 and from Farmington Normal School in 1931. She attended classes at the University of Southern Maine and Bates College.
For 37 years Ellen taught school in Maine and Vermont, becoming a principal in both states. While 4th grade was her favorite, her students ranged from grades 1-8. As a natural teacher, she continued lessons outside the classroom and instilled many life lessons in anyone fortunate enough to spend time with her.
She was a former member of the Eastern Star in New Gloucester, Maine and Bellows Falls, Vt. She also enjoyed membership in the Congregational churches in New Gloucester and York, Maine. Keep reading at Legacy.com
