Aileen B. Sherwood, 97, of Lake Monticello, VA, passed away on January 2, 2020. She is reunited with her husband, Edward, who passed away in 2011 and is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
She was born in Mexico, ME, July 11, 1922, a daughter of Daniel and Leona Holman. She graduated from Mexico High School. Aileen was also a graduate of Farmington State Teachers College and taught elementary school for many years including at one time in a one-room school house. After retirement, she and her husband enjoyed time at their cottage in Weld and a place in South Harpswell, Maine. Eventually they moved to Lake Monticello, Virginia, and enjoyed several wonderful years together before her husband of 64 years of marriage passed away.
She was a member of the Mexico Baptist Church in Maine for many years. As her health allowed, she continued faithfully attending church with her family in VA.
