Madeline R. Wentworth, 87, of Gorham, NH, joined her Heavenly Father on Monday, December 13, 2021 at St. Vincent de Paul Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Berlin. She was born on December 22, 1933 in Cascade-Gorham, NH, the daughter of the late Harry and Mary (McLaughlin) Corrigan and was a lifelong resident of the area. She married the love of her life, the late Carlyle D. Wentworth, with whom she raised 8 children. She graduated from Gorham High School with the Class of 1952 and the Northeastern Business College in Portland, ME. After graduating from college, she came back to work in the Berlin area. In her earlier years, she worked for New England Telephone, Co., and then went on to work for the Androscoggin Valley Hospital from which she retired in 1995 after 23 years of working in the dietary department. Madeline was a devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where she served many callings. She felt the most important calling was to be part of raising money for a building fund to build that beautiful church that sits atop Gorham Hill. The members of the Branch joined together to form a catering service (L.D.S. Catering Services) and worked to raised money to build their church.
Madeline loved children and was a devoted mother and enjoyed raising her family. She also loved all people and found ways to serve in many different capacities.
Madeline is survived by her children Ann Rollins and husband Walter of Penacook, NH, Tim Wentworth and wife Carol of Berlin, NH, Kimberly Gagnon and husband Joe of Barrington, NH, Sharon Glover and husband Leslie of Gorham, NH, Ambra Rodgers and husband Joe of Gorham, NH, Troy Wentworth and Sarah Clark and husband Shane of Woodsville, NH; many grandchildren and great grandchildren; siblings Francis Corrigan of Manchester, NH, George Corrigan of FL, and Peggy Corrigan of Gorham, NH; many nieces, nephews and cousins and a close family friend Jean Shields and her husband Ken and family of Milan.
