In Memory of Linda Bean

Linda was unique and irreplaceable. Her support of LifeFlight and healthcare access overall was emblematic of her deep affection for the people of Maine.

– Tom Judge, founding executive director, LifeFlight of Maine

LifeFlight of Maine mourns the loss of our friend and benefactor Linda Bean. “She was a woman of action, who led and inspired the community of Port Clyde to make possible the addition of a third helicopter to LifeFlight’s fleet,” noted Tom Judge. “Her generosity and spirit have impacted thousands of lives here in Maine.”

Linda was introduced to LifeFlight by Phyllis and Jamie Wyeth. Living on an island heightened Linda’s interest in access to emergency care. She became actively engaged after a tragic accident in Port Clyde highlighted the need for additional LifeFlight resources. All of us at LifeFlight extend our deepest sympathies to Linda’s sister Diana, her sons, and her extended family in all of her businesses and projects.
