WINDHAM – Arlene Elizabeth Thieme, 100, of Ledgewood Manor, Windham, Maine died from pneumonia 3/1/2020. She was born December 8, 1919 in Harrington, ME. Arlene was a terrific caregiver. Selfless to a fault. She was a Registered Nurse and mother caring for her immediate and extended family; Public Health Nurse in Portland, hospital nurse in San Francisco, CA during WWII – think Nurse Ratched with a big heart. She had a wry well-timed Down east sense of humor fueled by a strong feminist sensibility. She is sorely missed. She is predeceased by her sister: Adriene Tarpening; brothers: William Newcomb, Fred Newcomb; husband Charlie Thieme; her daughters Sharon Harris, Cynthia Fillinger, Merry-Jean Welch; and her grandson John Harris. She is survived by her brother Loring(aka Bob) Newcomb of South Portland, son Charlie Thieme Jr. of South Portland, son-in-laws: Fred Fillinger of Windham and John Harris of Wells, granddaughters: Bethany Altchek of Arlington MA, Janelle Goff of Windham, Hannah Brown of Biddeford, Tina Nelson of Kezar Falls, Janet Haddock of Carlsbad CA; grandsons: Fred Fillinger IV of Windham, Samuel Thieme of Winetka CA, Douglas Thieme of San Diego CA; and eight great-grandchildren.
