Bucksport- Margaret Bridges Hamilton Cook, 93, passed away on January 8, 2020. She was born on September 21, 1926 in Penobscot, the eldest of five children to Lawrence and Regina (Hutchins) Bridges.
Margaret graduated valedictorian from Clark High School in Penobscot in 1944. After graduation she moved to Springfield Mass where she went to work for Western Mass Electric. Margaret met and married Richard Hamilton in 1946, moved back to Maine where she worked as a secretary at the University of Maine in Orono while he was a student there.
After graduation they moved to Albany, NY where Margaret worked for the New York State Teachers Association. Later they moved to Connecticut and had two children Gail and Mark. The family returned to Maine in 1960 to Stockton Springs and later to Houlton where she and Richard divorced. She married her present husband Russell Cook in 1971 and after living one year in Lincoln, moved to Bucksport where they raised three children.
She was spiritually connected to the ocean; from the time she was a child jumping from iceberg to iceberg in the Northern Bay to her many camping trips up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Her most treasured moments were spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Margaret is survived by her husband of 48 years, Russell, daughter Gail Robshaw of Orland, son Mark and wife Bonnie Hamilton of Longwood, Fl, stepson Tracy Cook and Sheree Davis Cook of Union, grandchildren Samantha Robshaw, Sara Robshaw, Ciera and husband Sy Yost, Alexus Hamilton, Joshua and wife Tara Sibley and Jennifer and husband Sergio Sibley.
