As written by Marcia…..
I attended Portland schools and at the age of 13 I went to work taking care of children and doing housework, following I went to work for Shaw’s for many years and after I retired I went to work for 26 years house cleaning in the Portland area and enjoyed what I did.
I met my husband Gilbert Fernald, and had three children Gilbert, Anita, and Fredrick.
Gilbert and I had a love for ballroom dancing together and traveled around Maine teaching ballroom dancing.
Later in years after the passing of Gilbert, I met Walter Flint Sr, where for 32 years I spent time in the many flower and vegetable gardens.
I’m survived by Anita & Lawrence, Fredrick & Victoria, and a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren and a very special daughter in-law Joan Fernald and grand daughter Brenda, and I must say some of the best caring people in the world who took complete care of me and my needs -Angela and Mike Breton.
I was predeceased by my Father, Mother, sisters Shirley, Virgin, Lois, Brother James Hughes, husband Gilbert, son Gilbert Jr and Walter Flint Sr.
