Roberta E. Prince Farmer

Freeport, 85 passed away unexpectedly Friday January 10th with her family by her side.

Roberta was born in Brunswick on November 4, 1934, the daughter of Irving and Ruth Little Prince.

She worked as a cook for many years at the Freeport Nursing Home and Family Focus Day Care until she retired at the age of 78.

She truly loved spending time with children, particularly her grandchildren and great grandchildren; she never met a child she didn’t love. 

She enjoyed baking, making candy, going to camp, knitting, word search puzzles, and watching The Walton’s and Little House on the Prairie.  She loved caring for family and friends, and her door was always open. 

She is survived by her husband Phillip Farmer, daughters Dawn Spearrin and her husband Bill, Carrie Marthia and her husband Bob, her sons Barry and Aubrey Farmer, and a stepdaughter Dawn Joy; her grandchildren Ashley and Samantha Farmer, Nichole and Zachary DeHahn, Kaleb and Jacob Farmer, Cresten, Beth and Avery Farmer, and Jeff, Samantha and Logan Joy; great grandchildren Adriana, Ethan, Noah and Carter; sister Barbara Knedler, brother Hartwell Prince, and many nieces and nephews who she was very close to.

Services will be held at Stetson’s Funeral Home, 12 Federal Street Brunswick on Friday, January 17th at 11:00 a.m.  A reception will follow at The American Legion Hall, Foreside Road, Topsham.  Burial will be at Burr Cemetery in the spring. Memorial condolences may be expressed at
