Alice Martin True passed away at Gray Birch Nursing Home in Augusta Aug. 19, 2012 after a long illness. She was born Jan. 17, 1950 the daughter of Clinton and Doris Foster Martin. She attended Waterville schools. During 1967 she became pen pals with Paul True Jr., a sailor in the U.S. Navy. They were married Nov. 15, 1969. In 1972 they were blessed with a daughter, Doris and in 1973 a son, Paul III. Even though Alice worked for Colby College and Shaw's Supermarket she was mostly a homemaker. Their house was often full of laughter from the neighborhood kids hanging out playing cards. They call her 'Momma True' or 'Mrs. T.' There was always plenty of ice tea for them in her fridge. Her son would often joke that she was on the Beano traveling team. She made many friends playing Bingo. Alice's grandchildren loved their 'Mimi', they became her pride and joy. Her highlight was traveling to New Mexico for her son's wedding. This June she met her newest grandchild, Layne. She was a proud 'Mimi' and Auntie and would have lots of pictures in her purse of them all. She was predeceased by her parents; her husband, "Rick" True who died in 2009; and her brother, Clinton "Sonny" Martin. She is survived by her daughter, Doris True Champagne and boyfriend Jim Dennis of Benton; grandchildren, Caleb, Jared and Samantha Champagne; her son, Paul True III and his wife Cassie of Carlsbad, NM and granddaughter, Layne True; her siblings, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Clinda Jordan of Veazie and family, Mrs. Thelma Martin of Winslow and family, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Martin of Fairfield and family, Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Martin of Waterville and family; in-laws, Anne Bonsey-True Dow and Mr. and Mrs. Steve Patricia True Banks of Augusta and family; a special niece, Tori Martin Richards of Waterville; and many family and friends.
