Marion Stocking, journal editor
LAMOINE, Maine - Marion Kingston Stocking of Lamoine, longtime editor of the Beloit Poetry Journal, has died. She was 86.
Family and friends told the Bangor Daily News that Ms. Stocking, who had been diagnosed with cancer, died May 12 at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital.
In 1954, Ms. Stocking arrived at Beloit College in Wisconsin and quickly got involved in editing the quarterly publication with her husband, fellow college professor David Stocking.
The Stockings brought the journal's operations with them to Lamoine when they retired from Beloit in 1984. David Stocking died that fall, but his wife stayed with the journal until recently.
The journal is now affiliated with the University of Maine at Farmington and is published in that town.
She leaves her stepson, Frederick of Lamoine, and her sister, Barbara Foust of Pittston, Maine. A memorial service may be held this summer, her stepson said.
