Frances W. Budd, 98
CUMBERLAND - Frances W. Budd, 98, of Cumberland, passed away on June 26, 2018, at Coastal Manor in Yarmouth. She was born on July 8, 1919, in Carlton, S.C., the daughter of Walter and Esther Blocker.
Frances married Donald. H. Budd of St. Stevens, New Brunswick, Canada on Dec. 23, 1939. Donald passed away on April 23, 2004. Frances and Donald resided in Cumberland, where they raised their family of five children.
After raising her children, Frances started a career at Maine Medical Center in Portland. She began in the housekeeping department and was promoted to a nursing unit helper, where she was able to shine, making her co-workers laugh and patients feel comfortable as they recovered.
Frances was loved by her patients and co-workers alike. After 28 years at Maine Medical Center, she retired at the age of 83 to enjoy her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Frances had a way of connecting with others outside of her family by treating them as if they were her own. She enjoyed cooking, shopping and spending time with family. The aroma of her homemade bread baking, and shopping trips with her grandchildren, are memories that will be cherished.
In addition to her parents; Frances was predeceased by her siblings; sisters, Margaret, Clyde, Hannah; and brothers, Harold, Philip, Hal, and Alan.
She will be sadly missed by her children: Richard Budd and his wife, Nancy, of Cumberland, Sandra Cromwell of North Yarmouth, Esther Corcoran of Yarmouth, Ronald Budd and his fiance', Sheilah, of Cape Elizabeth, Cynthia Brainerd and her husband, Jim, of Gray; as well as her grandchildren: Timothy, Tammy, Rhonda, Carla, Ricky, Denny, Shawnna, Charlie, Heather, Jason, Carter, Evan, and Ashley; and her great-grandchildren: Leslie, Mikey, Reina, Riley, Kylie, Avery, Brenna, Landon, and Lorelei.
There will be a celebration of her life held on Sunday, July 8, 2018, from 1-4 p.m., at Wilson Funeral Home, located at 24 Shaker Road, Gray.
The family wanted to extend a special "THANK YOU" to the staff at Coastal Manor in Yarmouth.
