BATH — Elizabeth Mae Bragdon, 90, died Jan. 22 at the HillHouse in Bath following a long illness.
She was born on June 9, 1921 on Orr’s Island, a daughter of Albert E. and Bessie E. Johnson. She attended school in Brunswick and during World War II was very active in the United Service Organizations.
Bragdon was employed for many years in the cafeteria at local schools.
She was a longtime member of the Brunswick United Methodist Church and loved crocheting, knitting, tatting and was an excellent baker and cook. She will be fondly remembered for the many vegetable gardens that she tended; she was very generous with the food from her gardens, sharing her harvest with friends, family and strangers alike.
Bragdon was predeceased by her husband John E. Bragdon; brothers Albert C. and Joseph E. Johnson; and sister Deborah R. Morgan. She is survived by her son Albert E. Bragdon of Brunswick; brother J. Edward Johnson of Bailey Island; two sisters M. Ruth Perry of Bailey Island and Marjorie E. Powers of Great Island; and many nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held in the spring in Orr’s Island Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made in her name to the giver’s charity of choice.
