ROCKLAND – Marilyn Eileen Trask, 73, beloved wife of C. Brian Trask, passed away peacefully on Monday, October 28, 2019 at the Sussman House in Rockport.

Born in San Francisco California on February 6, 1946 to James and Martha Mann Adams, she was the oldest of four children and spent most of her childhood on the Texas gulf coast.

Marilyn graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and it was there that she met and married her husband Brian while he was a graduate student at the University. Throughout her nursing career, Marilyn worked as a hospital nurse, a home health nurse, and a volunteer nurse as she and Brian raised their family and moved to different locations.

Marilyn would come to Maine during many summer vacations to visit Brian’s home in Bernard on Mount Desert Island. She always loved Maine with its beautiful scenery and enjoyed the many opportunities to volunteer in the mid-coast area. Most notably as a nurse with the Knox County Health Clinic, the Rockland Public Library where she served time on the board, the Book Stop, Audubon’s Project Puffin Visitor Center, Hog Island Audubon Camp where she enjoyed doing maintenance and readying it for the summer students. She also enjoyed volunteering with Pen Bay Stewards of the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition, the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse (Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights), and many opportunities at the Rockland Congregational Church which she had been a member of since moving to Rockland in 2009.

Marilyn especially enjoyed and appreciated the dedication of many in this beautiful area that are working to keep the area open to all who want the experience.

Predeceased by her parents, a brother, Phillip Adams, two nephews and two nieces, she is survived by her husband, Brian of Rockland; her son, Aaron and his wife Jennifer Trask of Fairfax VA; her daughter, Colleen and her husband Bob Ulbricht of St. Charles MO; her brother, James Adams III of Houston TX; her sister, Janet Adams and her husband Randy Thompson of Austin TX; 8 grandchildren, and a niece and nephew.

A celebration of Marilyn’s life will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 2:00 pm at the Rockland Congregational Church with the Rev. Seth Jones officiating.

My deepest sympathy to the Trask family. I worked with Marilyn at Carle for a number of years and she was such a joy to be around. She was a very caring nurse to all of her patients. Her humor was wonderful. I enjoyed Christmas crafting at her home on Healey street. I'm so glad I knew Marilyn and have wonderful memories of our times many years ago. Sincerely, Lisa Koch

When my mother was suffering from cancer, Marilyn was one of the home health nurses who helped care for her. Marilyn was kind, attentive, and did such a wonderful job caring for our mom, she was by far our favorite nurse! Please accept our condolences on her passing, the prayers of our family are with you. May God bless and keep you all.

I am greatly saddened by Marilyn's passing. She was a true friend whom I met when she and her family moved to Champaign, IL. As young mothers living away from family, we quickly developed a very close friendship and were able to provide each other the support we both needed. She was probably better at that than I was. Anyone who knew Marilyn would be aware of the love, generosity, compassion, and positive attitude that she always put forth, and her home reflected her warmth and creativity. My sincere condolences to Brian, Colleen, and Aaron.
