Clement V. Hartford
Elmer E. Lake
Capt. Allan W. Wall Sr.
MINOT — Clement V. Hartford, 81, died on Feb. 21, 2012 with his loving family by his side. Clem was born Nov. 3, 1930, in Hiram, the son of Herbert and Lora (Marston) Hartford. He grew up on Tearcap Mountain in Hiram. He told many stories about life on the mountain and the adventures he shared with his siblings, Owen, Slick and Elaine. After Clem graduated from Fryeburg Academy, he joined the Air Force, traveling extensively during his four years of service. Two of his favorite areas were northern Africa and Alaska. As his Air Force years were ending, he was stationed in the Washington, D.C. area. It was there that he met the love of his life, Faith Nelson. She so loved his stories about life in Maine, they moved here and were married on Dec. 31, 1955. Clem went to work as a lineman for the telephone company and they bought a home in Minot, where they raised their four children. Clem was a hard working man. He tended to large gardens, a small orchard, was actively involved in his children’s sports and was instrumental in the development of the Minot Hebron Athletic Association. He taught his children to be hard working, independent and fair. Clem loved the outdoors. He taught his children to respect nature. He was an avid hunter and a Maine Guide for a period of time. He greatly enjoyed his time in the woods with his brother, Owen. Clem retired in 1982, and then moved to Florida in 1984 with his wife and son, Matthew. Despite health issues that forced his retirement, he continued to putter — working around the house and on his beautiful gardens. It was during their time in Florida, that they became Christians. In 2002, they moved to Ohio to be near one of their sons, Matt, who was serving as minister in the Church of Christ and their faith became the centerpiece of their lives. The biggest change in Clem’s life came in 2008, when his wife of 52 years suddenly passed away. During this devastating loss, he turned to his faith and family and found the courage and peace that he demonstrated for the rest of his life. In April 2011, Clem returned to Maine to live with his daughter and her family in the home he bought 50 years earlier. He spent his summer doing the things he liked best — being with his family and working outside with his boys on his John Deere tractor. In his own words, “I had a ball!” He leaves behind his children, Sharon Petrie of Minot, Tom Hartford of Minot, Eric Hartford of Rockledge, Fla. and Matt Hartford of Merritt Island, Fla.; his seven grandchildren; his three great-grandchildren; his brother, Owen Hartford; and sister, Elaine Sanborn. He was predeceased by his wife, Faith; and brother, Herbert (Slick).

Ruth N. Trumbull LITTLETON, N.H. — Ruth N. (Jones) Trumbull, formerly of Fryeburg, Maine and Jensen Beach, Fla., and the originator of The Joe Jones Shop, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine from complications of lung disease. Ruth was born May 29, 1922. Ruth was one of nine children of Fred and Gertrude Northrop of Conway, N.H. Her twin brother, Richard, passed away at nine months of age from pneumonia. She graduated from Kennett High School and married her first husband, Joseph A. Jones. In the early 1950s, together they created The Joe Jones Shop, which was located on Kearsarge Street in North Conway, where Hooligans Restaurant now stands. She also kept a rooming house where she rented rooms both in her home and over the shop. Joe Jones passed away in 1965. Sadly, the shop and home burned in 1968 and she and her second husband, Charles F. Trumbull, moved the Joe Jones Shop to Mechanic and Main Street, its current location. Ruth and Charlie sold the shop in 1973 to the Badger family along with other partners. Ruth became a snowbird and traveled back and forth between Jensen Beach, Fla. and her summer home at Lovewell’s Pond in Fryeburg. Upon the death of Charles F. Trumbull, Ruth became best friends with her neighbor in Fla., Edward J. Connolly and they shared 23 wonderful years, until his death in 2008. Ruth leaves behind her brother, Willmont Northrop and his wife Delores, of San Diego, Calif.; Ruth’s daughters, Jo-Ann Jones of North Conway, N.H. and Carol-Ann Solari of Fryeburg, Maine; four grandchildren, six great-grandchildren; as well as nieces and nephews, her two stepsons, Alan Trumbull and wife Cathy, Fred Trumbull and wife Nancy, and five step-grandchildren. Ruth will always affectionately be known as “Mamie,” a name she chose for herself when her first grandchild was born. Ruth was a very private person, but was always straight forward. At her request there will be no services. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in Ruth’s memory to Eastern Slope Ski Club, P.O. Box 248, North Conway, NH 03860 for the benefit of the Junior Ski program. Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg, ME.
