MACHIAS – Bernard Lyman Cheney died April 19, 2012, at his home after a
brief illness. He was born May 4, 1923, in Lubec, the son of Reginald
Merideth and Margaret (Yorke) Cheney.

He graduated from Lubec High School and immediately volunteered for the
paratroopers. He served with distinction through numerous battles in World
War II, including Battle of the Bulge. Bernard concluded his military
service as a sergeant occupying Berlin after the war was completed. Upon
returning to Down East Maine Bernard served in Maine State Police for seven
years and then worked for the General Adjustment Bureau for the remainder of
his career as an insurance adjuster. He enjoyed his long retirement and
spent it working in his garden, spending time with his family and friends,
and occasionally doing boat surveys.

Bernard was predeceased by his wife, Virginia Schoppee Cheney; and his only
child, Beverly Cheney Edwards. He is survived by his three grandsons,
Benjamin, Matthew and Peter Edwards; sister, Pearl Cheney Choquette;
son-in-law, Dr. John A. Edwards; John’s brother, Larry P. Edwards;
sister-in-law, Rebecca Schoppee Carlson and family; the Corey family from
Colorado; Jeanine Sullivan of Portland; many more devoted friends and
family. The family extends a special thank you to the many professionals at
Dr. David Rioux’s medical office and at Community Health and Counseling
Services Hospice.

There will be no visitation or services. A private committal will be held at
a later date. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make contributions in
his memory to the Virginia S. Cheney scholarship, University of Maine at
Machias Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, University of Maine at Machias,
