Eugenia Bacon





1-888-579-7953 Code: 75133P



Eugenia Faye Bacon, 77, passed away Sunday June 3 at the family home on Taylor’s Island.

She leaves behind her husband of 54 years, W. Edward Bacon, sons, Christopher and Daniel Bacon, daughter, Francesca Griffith, and grandchildren, Blaine Griffith, Alex and Kyle Bacon, and her dog Shadow.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Faye lived in Poolesville, Maryland most of her adult life. She later moved to Taylor’s Island in 2000 when she and Ed retired.

Faye received her Bachelor’s Degree from Hunter College in New York City in 1956 and her Master’s Degree in Psychology from Lehigh University in 1958 where she and Ed met. She worked as a clinical psychologist for several years before deciding to focus on caring for her family fulltime.

In addition to dedicating her life raising her children she started a new career as a real estate agent although it was more about helping people than making money. She would quite often waive her commission. Ed would joke that the IRS was going to claim it wasn’t a business, but a hobby.

If she can be remembered for one thing, it would be a caring and compassionate person that was always willing to give and ask for nothing in return.

Faye was very fond of animals, especially dogs. She had a number of canine companions over the years. Faye will be greatly missed by her family, Shadow and loved ones. We love you, rest in peace.

Services will be private and held at a later date.

Arrangements are entrusted to Newcomb and Collins Funeral Home, P.A., Cambridge, MD.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in memory of Faye to the American Lung Association National Headquarters, 1301 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Suite 800, Washington, DC 20004. To send online condolences, please visit www.newcombcollins.com

Posted by: Robert & Annette Johnson Dear Rasmi & Dan, We are so sorry for your loss. You and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers. Rob & Annette 06/30/2012 Posted by: Jeanette Harris I wish to express my condolence. I, like you have personally experienced the deep emotional emptiness death causes. I find support by reading the Bible, especially Revelation 21:4. It says "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying." That surely is something wonderful to think about. 06/14/2012 Posted by: Sue Weeks Francie, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family. - Sue 06/12/2012 Posted by: Jean and Freeman Grout So sorry for your loss-I know that she will be greatly missed. She was always very kind to us. 06/10/2012 Posted by: Laura Wiegmann To the whole Bacon family: My heart is with you during this time, especially since it wasn't that long ago that I experienced the same circumstances. I pray for you to have peace and strength during this time, and that you can have joy in the happy memories and remember all the good things you still have.

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Turn to the Lord for comfort and He will provide it through this difficult time. In Paul's letter to the Philippians we are told: Philippians 4:6-7 NIV - [6] Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. [7] And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Our prayers are that you will find that peace in the Lord that is available to all who have put their trust in Jesus. We know that these last few years have been hard to see Mom suffer so much with the cancer. But that time is past, and she has now been made new. Philippians 3:20-4:1 NIV - [20] But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, [21] who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. 4:1 Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends! Yes, our Lord and Savior Jesus has promised to make all things new. We know that although she is in a better place, it is still hard for you to lose the one that you love so much. Rest your hearts on the promises He has given us, and He will see you through this sorrowful time. John 1:11-12 NIV - [11] He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. [12] Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- John 14:1-3 NIV - [1] "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You trust in God; trust also in me. [2] In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. Love and Prayers, Victor, Ginny and Grace Arca 06/06/2012 Posted by: robert farrow We are so sorry for your loss!

Is it destiny? Seems to be an empty tragedy. An unwoken logic broken bad dream, drowned out the gleam of a beauty, but this young soul so kind should not find pain on a sunny day. Yet soul and body have no boundaries and life is but an empty sea shell left floating in an endless sea. If you listen you can hear it- A true spirit can not be held down to earthly ground. But rises away to roam against foam of uncertain grey, from time lost and found. In quiet sound her heart rebounds, a mermaid that faded away, resurfaces to say," This is reality; I will not deny it or defy it. I will accept it and go quietly, to not watch my family stand by idly to cry and suffer with me. Do not ask why. I do not complain that life is an unfair game. Do not be angry with me- I did only what was best. I didn't want a war- just to rest by the shore- to suffer no more. So "Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone." Dear husband, children and grandchildren do not be sad and alone, do not weep bitterly while I sleep quietly by the sea. Silence the pianos and with muffled drum, bring out the wine, celebrate our time and let peace come.

Donna 06/04/2012 Posted by: A sympathy card has been sent to the family of Eugenia Faye Bacon c/o Newcomb & Collins Funeral Home, P.A. funeral home. 06/04/2012 Posted by: Mary Fraker Chris, my deepest condolence to you and your family. What a great mom... always giving and wanting to be a blessing to everyone she would meet. I know words cannot express the sadness you feel to not see her now. But you will see her again, as stated in the book of Thessalonians: 13-14And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don't want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus. 15-18And then this: We can tell you with complete confidencea"we have the Master's word on ita"that when the Master comes again to get us, those of us who are still alive will not get a jump on the dead and leave them behind. In actual fact, they'll be ahead of us. The Master himself will give the command. Archangel thunder! God's trumpet blast! He'll come down from heaven and the dead in Christ will risea"they'll go first. Then the rest of us who are still alive at the time will be caught up with them into the clouds to meet the Master. Oh, we'll be walking on air! And then there will be one huge family reunion with the Master. So reassure one another with these words. ~1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 Tony & Mary Fraker 06/04/2012 Posted by: Laura Serra Francie, you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Let me know if there is anything I can do. 06/04/2012
