Alice White Tomlinson, 96, a longtime resident of Midcoast Maine, died peacefully at her home in Damariscotta on March 21, 2022, with family by her side.
Alice was born in 1925 to the late Sigrid (Berggren) and George G. White and grew up in Hillsdale, New Jersey, where she attended local schools. She graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1946, earning a degree in Education and becoming a very active member of the Gamma Phi Beta International Sorority. She went on to teach high school Home Economics and, in 1948, married Earl Whitaker “Whit” Tomlinson. She adored his companionship until his death in 2007. Alice’s teaching career was put aside as she dedicated herself to the long-term needs of caring for her disabled child, Holly.
For over 60 years, the Tomlinsons enjoyed time in coastal Maine as both summer and full-time residents of Ocean Point and Wiscasset. Alice removed to Schooner Cove, Damariscotta when Whit passed away. Together, they had enjoyed boating, raising American Quarter Horses, and taking many trips abroad. Alice was especially fond of local garden clubs.
In addition to her parents and husband, Alice was predeceased by two children: infant son Jeffrey Whitaker Tomlinson and daughter Holly Lynn Tomlinson.
Alice is survived by her daughter Jennifer T. Morrison, of Augusta; grandchildren Johanna and Norman Stickney of West Gardiner, Andrew and Jennifer (Su) Morrison of Belmont, Massachusetts, and Thomas Morrison and Ixtla Arceo-Witzl of Oak Park, Illinois; great-grandchildren Molly, Abigail, and Leah Stickney, and Oliver and Sadie Morrison. Additionally, Alice will be missed by dear longtime friend Elaine Nordstrom and numerous caring cousins
