Jane Varnum will remain in the heart of the Monhegan Memorial Library. She passed away January 9, 2013 in Massachusetts. Her passion for reading directed her to dedicate hundreds if not thousands of hours to her dear library. She along with Eileen Cameron sat on the corner of the lupine field every afternoon for 15 years selling raffle tickets to tourists and residents, she showed real dedication and boy could she sell tickets! In addition to her years as co-chair of the raffle sales, she served on the library board, served as treasurer, and c0-chaired Tea by the Sea. She told vivid, highly entertaining stories of life on Monhegan in the recent and distant past. She will be missed and there is much in the library that will bring her to mind.
