Obituary:
Emily Platt Hilburn of Falmouth, Maine, ended her life journey on November 1, 2019. Born and raised in Ohio, she attended high school at The Putney School in Vermont, then majored in modern dance at Mills College in California. There she met Roy Hilburn, whom she married in February 1953.

Emily and Roy’s odyssey of 66 years took them to Vermont, Ohio, Montana, North Carolina, Florida, and several locations in California and Maine. They welcomed three sons and a daughter. For six summer seasons while they lived in California, they operated the Maine Sailing School in Bayside, Maine. Emily’s interest in education led to positions as a special education assistant in the public schools of Portland and Cape Elizabeth, Maine.

In retirement Emily and Roy traveled from Florida to Maine via both the Appalachian Trail and the Intracoastal Waterway. They explored from coast to coast in their RV, built a log home from a do-it-yourself kit, and maintained residences in both Florida and Maine as snowbirds. Emily loved to take long walks, share blueberries from her garden, cruise to solar eclipses, and swim near her family’s summer cottage in Northport, Maine.

Celebrating her 88 years are her husband, Roy Hilburn of Falmouth, Maine; children Steven Hilburn, Daniel (Lucy) Hilburn, Jeffrey Hilburn, and Linda (Dick) Swift; siblings Robert (Bodil) Platt, William (Nan) Platt, David Platt (Janice Drinan), and Lisa (Charlie) Carmalt; granddaughters Alison (Mike) Olson, and Caroline Hilburn (Grant Elliott); great-grandchildren Owen and Zoey Olson; nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many friends at the OceanView retirement community of Falmouth, Maine.

At her request, there will be no services. Her family will gather for a private celebration of her life at a later date.

Dennett, Craig & Pate Funeral Home and Cremation are entrusted with her services.
