Mary Ellen Ronan Pomber, 82

Falmouth - Mary Ellen Ronan Pomber, 82 of Falmouth, Maine went to be with the Almighty on
May 13, 2017 after a long illness and with her family by her side.

Mary Ellen was born October 9,1934 in Rumford, Maine and graduated from Stephen's High
School in 1952. After high school she lived in Boston and worked in a private medical practice
for an internist, where she met lifelong friends and embarked on many adventures before moving
back to Maine to start a family. She received her degree as a medical laboratory technician from
the University of Maine in Augusta in 1983.

Mary Ellen made you feel special whether you just met her or had been friends for years, she was
quick with a laugh, a kind word or a genuine compliment. She adored animals of all kinds and passed
that love onto her three children. She was a talented musician on the piano and organ and was crafty
with cross stitch, quilts and knitting.

Mary Ellen loved spending time with her family and holiday get togethers. She spent
many weekends at sister's lake house each summer, and was fortunate to have traveled to Ireland
with her father where she met several members of their extended Irish family and shared many
laughs and stories. Her faith in God was strong and she was deeply religious throughout her life.
Mary Ellen will be loved and missed by all who knew her.

Mary Ellen was predeceased by her mother Ellen "Nellie" Kett Ronan and father Thomas Patrick
Ronan, as well as her brothers William Ronan, John Ronan, Tom Ronan, Jr., Tim Ronan and
Stephen Ronan.

She is survived by her three children, daughters Nancy Hanna and her husband
Nate of Bristol, ME and Kim Graham and her husband Drew of North Yarmouth, ME, son Joe
Pomber of Kennebunk, ME, and her sister Margaret Roberts of Sidney, ME. Mary Ellen was a
proud Nana to Russell, Tommy, Elly, Matthew and Andi, and an aunt to many nieces and
nephews and was a lifelong friend to many.
