Marjorie Adams Lewis Good, granddaughter of a Vineyard whaling master, died on March 4. She was 99.

The daughter of Vida Adams Lewis and the Rev. Gomer R. Lewis, she was born on August 30, 1917 in West Tisbury, where her father was the minister at the Congregational Church. She had one sibling, her brother Gordon R. Lewis, who lost his life as a fighter pilot in World War II.

Her maternal grandmother was Alice Tilton Adams and her grandfather was Master David B. Adams, who lived in West Tisbury but would set sail from San Francisco on whaling voyages to the Pacific and the Artic. Marjorie’s family tree can be traced back to the early families on Martha’s Vineyard.

She married Thomas Prosser Good and they had one child, Thomas Prosser Good Jr. Both predeceased her.

Marjorie truly loved Vineyard summers with her family and many friends year after year, and would stay on the Island for as long in the season as possible.

Known to friends as Midge, she was busy with The Garden Club and a social calendar that would include enjoying an Alfred Eisenstaedt photo show at the Chilmark Community Center to joining a large group of friends for a lobster bake on the beach.

She would return to Woodbury, Conn., where she lived for 70 years when she was not on the Vineyard.

She leaves behind her daughter in law, Betsy, one granddaughter, Laura Foley, and several nieces and nephews.

A graveside service and interment at Abel’s Hill Cemetery will be held at a later date to be announced.
