Grace T. Fargeon, 92

BRUNSWICK — Grace T. Farjeon, 92, died Dec. 24 at Horizons Living and Rehabilitation Center.

Born in New York on March 30, 1919, she was the youngest of Harry and Grace Thorne Farjeon's five children.

She attended Brearly School in New York and graduated with a bachelor's degree from the University of Chicago. She faithfully served her country in the U.S. Navy during WWII and earned the rank of lieutenant. She declined to receive the veteran's bonus, and told people she believed she did not deserve a reward for serving her country in a time of war.

For many years she worked as a counselor at Smith College where she served as the director of placement for students.

Fargeon lived in Maine for over 10 years, moving here from East Hampton, Mass. She was known for her sharp wit and wonderful sense of humor.

Her family would like to thank neighbors, Horizons Living and Rehabilitation Center, The Highlands, Mary Boie and Ruth Lyons, her friend for over 25 years and helper for the last five years, for the care she received.

She never married and is predeceased by her four sisters. Fargeon is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours were held on Jan. 11 at the Brackett Funeral Home in Brunswick.
