Obituary for Calvin Brackett Sewall
WILTON – Calvin B. (Brackett) Sewall, 96, of Wilton, passed peacefully at daybreak on Thursday March 2, 2017. He was born on Sept. 15, 1920 on the family’s Keep Road farm in Jay. He grew up on the farm with his parents Herbert and Harriett (Brackett) Sewall and his sister, Mary. His family raised prize beef cattle and apples of many varieties that were shipped around the world.
He was educated in a one room schoolhouse in Jay and then moved to Wilton Academy for the upper grades. He graduated from WA in 1937. He then attended the University of Maine, Orono, where he earned a BA in economics, graduating in 1942.
During the summer of ’42, he worked at the Wilton Woolen Mill, making cloth and blankets for the US Army. He also served as a member of the US Ground Observer Corp., spending night after night watching the skies for enemy planes.
He joined the United States Army Air Corp in September of 1942, serving stateside in Florida and Wisconsin as a radio operator and mail room clerk. He separated from the Air Corp as a Sargent in 1946 and came home to Wilton, where his mother had moved, following his father’s death.
Using the GI Bill, he attended Columbia University Law School, graduating in 1948 with a LLB Degree and returned home, to Wilton. He passed the Maine State Bar and set up practice in downtown Wilton. He served Wilton and greater Franklin County residents through his legal practice for more than 40 years as well as serving as Clerk of Courts and as County Attorney.
He served his local community through active membership in the local and statewide Masonic groups (Masons, Knight’s Templar, Kora Shrine) and the American Legion. He was a founding member of the Wilton Lions and the Wilton Historical Society. He was also a member of the Franklin County Bar Association and was the attorney for the Town of Wilton. He was a Past Master of Wilton Masonic Lodge #156, Past Commander of the Wilton American Legion Post and Past Treasurer of the Wilton Historical Society.
He was an active member, for more than 75 years, of the First Congregational Church of Wilton, UCC. He served in many capacities within the church including moderator and church historian. He will be especially remembered as an usher and morning greeter.
Calvin was an avid tennis player and enjoyed long walks along the roads of Wilton. He would pick up bottles along the roadside to help keep his town clean. He enjoyed his time working the Lion’s Club book tent during their annual sale and the annual pancake breakfast. He also loved to show people the history of Wilton through tours at the Wilton Historical Museum. He loved to read, especially books about history and he studied politics. One of his favorite games was cribbage. He played every chance he could get, right up to the end.
Calvin was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Mary (Sewall) Cole. He is survived by his nephew Thomas Cole (Gail) of Florida ; his cousins, Susan Kaplan-Burgess and Andrea Kaplan who were his loving caregivers these last three years, and many other cousins.
We would like to thank his longtime doctor, Dr. Craig Lewis and his staff for his wonderful care over the years; and, would especially like to thank the Staff at Beacon Hospice; Cindy, Megan, Paula and Joel for their tender loving care these last 7 months.3

Caroline J. Sewall1

F, b. 1924, d. 19 October 2014
     Caroline J. Sewall was born in 1924 in Long Island, New York.1 She was the daughter of Samuel Donnell Sewall and Gladys Edith Labdon.1 Caroline J. Sewall married Howard Hanks Jr., son of Howard Hanks, on 22 November 1945

     Miss Caroline Sewall, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel D. Sewall of Islip, N. Y., became the bride of Lt. (jg) Howard Hanks, Jr., USN, son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Hanks of Easton, Pa., Nov. 22 at Sacred Heart church, Punahou, with the Rev. Father Edward Leo Condon performing the afternoon ceremony.
     Dr. Deal Crooker gave the bride in marriage. Miss Alma Mathewson was maid of honor and Mr. La Verne Pyles, Jr., was best man. Ushers were Lt. (jg) Robert Winter. Lt. (jg) James Turner, Lt. (jg) David S. Wells, and Lt. George A. Slifer, Jr., who formed the traditional arch of steel with their crossed swords.
     A wedding dinner was held at the Niumalu hotel for members of the bridal party after the ceremony. The bride attended Sargent college, Cambridge, Mass. Lt. Hanks attended Notre Dame and is stationed at Pearl Harbor.
     The couple are making their home at 4199 Seaside ave. after spending their honeymoon at Kailua.2

Caroline J. Sewall died on 19 October 2014 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.3

Caroline Sewall Hanks passed away on Sunday, October 19, 2014 at the age of 90.
     She was a member of St. Monica's Episcopal Church in Naples and lived at Waterside Place in North Naples since 1996. She died while staying with her son Christopher and daughter-in law Suzanne at their home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mrs. Hanks' husband, Howard Hanks, Jr. , died in September, 1987.
     Mrs. Hanks is survived by her sister, Islay Hedger of Santa Rosa, CA (previously of Naples). She also leaves five children, Christopher, Stephen (Silver Spring, MD), Nancy Kudwa (York, SC), David (Walnut Creek, CA), and Paul (Naples, FL). Mrs. Hanks was the devoted and proud grandmother of eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, all of whom she happily saw during her final year.
     Wherever the family was living - her husband's career in the portland cement industry took the family to many different states over time - Mrs. Hanks was always actively involved in her local community, including serving as a PTA leader and on school boards in New Orleans LA, Newark DE, Wheeling IL, and Woodstock NY. As an indication of her homemaking skills, Mrs. Hanks competed in and won the title of Mrs. Delaware in 1958 in the national Mrs. America contest.
     In the 1970s, while living in Walnut Creek CA, she earned a Masters Degree in counseling at California State-Hayward, which led to full-time work as a human-resources manager in the Bay area in the 1980s. After her husband's death, Mrs. Hanks moved to Lake Forest, IL to be near her daughter and, as a volunteer, became the driving force in the establishment of the non-profit, volunteer-based Career Resource Center there, which helps the unemployed find jobs. In her 80's she served multiple years as President of the Waterside Place Homeowners Association and, in her spare time, worked as a seamstress in the costume department at the Naples Players. And finally, despite having a stroke in 2010 in Naples, she finished Caroline, An American Woman's Experience, a book-length memoir of her life that will soon be available in print and online.
