Obituary

Jeanette Caroline Fickett Smith of the Schoodic Peninsula and of Lakeland Florida went to be with her Lord 5/23/21. She was born the only child of Earl K. and Dorothy (Eldridge) Fickett on June 26, 1944 in Belfast, ME. A war baby, her father worked at Camden Shipyard and her mother was a homemaker. They soon moved to Milbridge where Jeanette grew up and graduated from Milbridge High School as valedictorian of her class. In 1962, she fell in love and married her husband Larry Smith. While Larry was in the military, she took a job at the Stinson Canning Company in Prospect Harbor as a receptionist and bookkeeper. They moved to Winter Harbor where they lived for 39 years. They then built and moved into their lovely ocean view home in Gouldsboro, where she spent her last days watching the sun rise and set over the ocean.
Music was one of her passions, having played piano and organ for many churches and special events throughout her life. She had played at the First Baptist Church in Cherryfield for many years, along with being the organist for 33 years at St. Christopher Church at Grindstone Neck. She also enjoyed her time playing for Winter Harbor Baptist Church and Stuben Union Church. She and her husband Larry often enjoyed playing together, as it was a shared passion.
In Jeanette’s younger years, she was an active member of the Acadian Garden Club and belonged to several yacht clubs.
She enjoyed traveling, having visited the Hawaiian Islands twice, took cruises to the Bahamas and Mexico, visited Niagara Falls New York and Canada, Arizona, California, and Texas, all along with her family.
She and Larry have owned a home in Florida since 1989, and have enjoyed wintering there ever since.
Jeanette trained to be an amateur ballroom dancer and traveled with the Arthur Murray Studio troop for several winters in Florida.
Among her other hobbies, she always enjoyed cooking, home decorating, reading countless books on British History, American History, personal biographies, true adventure and explorations. She has amassed a vast library on these subjects along with Maine history, ect. One of her greatest personal achievements was playing the organ for the ArchBishop of Canterbury and receiving a personal invitation in the form of a personal letter from Queen
Elizabeth to visit the palace. She has taken great pride in her children, their education and accomplishments.
Jeanette believed in her Lord and lived by her favorite scripture, Proverbs 3:5+6 : “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thy paths.”
She is survived by her husband of 58 yrs, Larry, her son Larry Jr., Daughter-in-law Michelle Smith, her daughter Nancy, Son-in-Law Douglas Pike, a grandson Derek Smith and his fiance Melissa, and granddaughters, Elizabeth and Laura Pike, and several cousins.
A special thanks goes to Kindred Hospice, Misses Edith Dixon, William Sofield and the Reed family and all others who have supported the family throughout this very trying time. Memorials can be given to the Eleanor Widener Dixon Clinic, First Baptist Church of Cherryfield, or the Stuben Union Church.
Visitation will start at 1:00pm on Friday afternoon with a funeral service at 2:00pm at First Baptist Church in Cherryfield. Burial will take place in Greenwood Cemetery in Winter harbor.

What wonderful times we had playing the organ and piano at the First Baptist Church in Cherryfield! It became even more special when Larry would join in with his trombone and my dad (Everett Tucker) with his trumpet. Wonderful memories with such a special lady! Will be missed. Much Love, Lisa Tucker Caruso

My fond memory of Jeanette was that at family gatherings she would always make sure to make a personal contact with me, even if only for a moment, and make a point of saying something positive about me personally. I honestly recall all these moments.

Lovingly,
The family of Stephen and Jacquelyn Treat
