- January 14, 2004

MILO - Catherine Isobel Fricke, 85, wife of George R. Fricke, died Jan. 14, 2004. Catherine, the only daughter of Walter and Marianne (Wingate) Nichol, was born March 13, 1918, in Toronto, Ontario and attended schools in Ontario. She received her R.N. at Victoria Hospital, London, Ontario. Catherine, along with her husband, George, came to Maine in 1974, when they purchased and jointly operated Bartlett-yarns, Inc., in Harmony. After selling the business, the couple enjoyed traveling, especially through those parts of Scotland in which her ancestors had lived. Catherine was completely dedicated to her home and family. Her favorite recreation was either enjoying the family's camp on Schoodic Lake, or cruising the Maine coast in their schooner. As well as being a superb cook and homemaker, she was adept at knitting, making dozens of knitted articles now treasured more than ever by family members. In addition to her husband George, she is survived by two sons, George and Robert; four daughters, Marianne Fricke, M. Joan Youngken, Dr. Carrie Wingate, and Cora Stempel; also by two brothers, Drs. Walter and Charles Nichol; seven grandchildren. There will be no immediate funeral services. The family will hold a private memorial later this year. Arrangements by Crosby & Neal Funeral Home, Guilford.
