Topsham-Alberta "Birdie” Pickard, 77,  passed away Saturday, January 11, 2020. 

Birdie was born on November 3, 1942 in Bristol, CT, daughter of Donald and Grace Gilliam. On December 15, 1962 she married the love of her life, Donald Pickard. Together they shared 57 years of marriage, had four wonderful children, and made beautiful memories along the way.

Birdies greatest joy was her family.  She was the most caring and generous woman, with the biggest heart.  She went above and beyond for those who knew her.  She cared for all babies, made the best spaghetti sauce, and loved her birthday and holiday traditions.

Birdie was incredibly talented and hard working. She spent countless hours handcrafting beautiful family heirlooms.  From wedding cakes to porcelain dolls to quilts, gifts from Birdie were always from the heart. She worked at the Chuck Wagon for many years. Anyone who knew her, loved her.

Birdie is survived by her husband, Donald Pickard, her children Donald L. Pickard, Christine Briggs, Patricia and husband Eric Norzow; Son in Law Richard Moreau; Sister Marie Simmons; Grandchildren Katie and husband Nathan Wallace, Claire Briggs and fiancée Ben, Evan and Matthew Norzow; Great-Grandchildren Gavin and Maya. She was pre deceased by her daughter, Sandra Moreau and brother Donald Gilliam.

She loved without limits.
