Olive Louise Marston, gar­dener ex­traor­di­naire from Bethel, CT. Au­gust 2, 1929 – May 21, 2019.

Louise Marston has moved on; no doubt plan­ning her new­est gar­den.

Lou was mother to Peter, Carolyn and Christie and grand­mother to Will, Courtney, An­drea, Cassie and Zulie. Her lat­est ad­di­tions were her great-grand­chil­dren, Tucker and Aryanna.

Her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren will al­ways re­mem­ber Lou work­ing in her gar­dens; plan­ning and plant­ing and tend­ing. Lou’s lifelong love of or­ganic gar­den­ing lead to knowl­edge and skill far be­yond the norm… which lead to the most amaz­ing and beau­ti­ful gar­dens! Her friends were all avid gar­den­ers as well, and she loved the time she spent with them dis­cussing plants and gar­den­ing meth­ods.

Lou’s chil­dren will also re­mem­ber her skill and ded­i­ca­tion to her four-legged chil­dren; her Loyal Col­lie Ken­nel. Through care­ful study and se­lec­tive breed­ing she was able to elim­i­nate the ge­netic eye prob­lem which plagues the breed, and to pro­duce show qual­ity col­lies which threw only ‘clear eyed’ pups.

Since Lou was rather par­tic­u­lar about her plants and flow­ers, we are avoid­ing the usual florist ar­range­ments. In­stead, we will use live pot­ted out­door plants, which will later be planted. If you would like to bring one, and then take it home to plant in Lou’s memory, that would be great!

For the dis­tant friends and fam­ily (and the non-gar­den­ers!) who wish to do so, a do­na­tion to the hos­pice care folks would be much ap­pre­ci­ated. Th­ese peo­ple were a huge help to Lou – and to all of us. Their ex­per­tise and sin­cere car­ing made the last leg of her life so much bet­ter. You can do this on­line, or by mail:

Known to be re­garded as one of the hardest work­ing ma­son con­trac­tors, he al­ways en­joyed the time shared with his fam­ily, friends and most es­pe­cially his grand­chil­dren whom he idol­ized. He will be sorely missed.
