Shirley F Durgin, 92, died Thursday, February 28 2013 In New Smyrna Beach, FL. She was born in Beverly, MA on January 20, 1921, daughter of Perley & Glendene Ricker Fillmore. She was the widow of Capt. Ralph Durgin, U.S.A.F. who died in 1958. She attended schools in Beverly, MA until the age of 8 when her family moved to Freeport, ME. Her parents purchased the Roseland Cabins which they owned and operated for 48 years. She graduated from Freeport High School in 1939. Shirley retired from L.L. Bean. During retirement she enjoyed driving, knitting, and working in her flower gardens when not spending time with her beloved family. In later years, her good friend and companion, Leon Cushing moved in with her until he died in 2001. She is survived by three children: a son Stephen Durgin and his wife Blanche Brentzel-Durgin of Oak Hill, FL,  daughter, Diane Briggs and her husband, George of Freeport, ME, and a daughter, Rosanne Durgin and her companion, Frank Vonasek, of Pownal, ME; five grandsons and one granddaughter. She always said, "Thank God for my children". Grandchilden are Scott and Laurie Durgin, Gary and Karie Durgin, Greg Coffin, Tom and Amy Coffin, Robert Coffin and Lisa Randall, great grandchildren Brandon Durgin, Noah Coffin, Delaney Durgin, Dominique Durgin, Chelsea Durgin and Jordan Randall.
