Bridget A. Chandler

Date of Death: October 9, 2019

Date of Birth: June 17, 1951


Pownal - Bridget Anne (Farley) Chandler, 68, of Pownal passed away peacefully on Wednesday October 9th, 2019 surrounded by her family at Midcoast Senior Health's Bodwell Center following a very long battle with C.O.P.D.

Bridget was born in Portland Maine on June 17, 1951 the daughter of Thomas F. and Ruth P. (Parks) Farley. She grew up and attended Portland and Freeport schools graduating in 1969. She married the love of her life, Robert Chandler, on December 19, 1970.

For a number of years she was a stay at home wife and mother, giving her full attention to her family whom she adored.  Once her son reached high school she started working for Hannaford Supermarket in Yarmouth where she continued to work for 20 plus years. She loved socializing and making friends with customers and co-workers alike.

In her spare time Bridget loved watching sports. The Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots were among her favorites along with NASCAR and college sports of any kind especially the Auburn University football games. She would then follow up with extended phone calls with her sister Sue and her brother Tom to talk scores and statistics for hours.
She also enjoyed watching and spending time with her pet duck, D.D. often bringing D.D. for rides to visit friends. What a kick it was to see her coming with her D.D. in the front seat. Her son Robert Jr and becoming a Nan were her proudest accomplishments and if you had a minute she would tell you all about Robbie and her girls.

Bridget is predeceased by her parents and her loving husband Robert Chandler Sr. She is survived by her son Robert Jr and his companion Julie of Durham. Granddaughters Casey Chandler of Durham and Erin Chandler and her companion Adam Thibeault of Brunswick, and two great grandchildren, Aydin and Aubree Thibeault of Brunswick. Siblings Tom Farley and wife Linda of Pennsylvania; Tim Farley and wife Bernadette of South Carolina; Susan Farley of Freeport; Kenneth Farley and wife Roxie of Freeport and Peter Farley of Sabattus.

A celebration of life will be held at the home of her brother and sister-in-law Kenneth and Roxie Farley in Freeport on October 26th 2019 at 2pm. A private interment at Burr cemetery in Freeport will take place at a later date.

The family would like to express special thanks to Susan, Kim and Pam from Hospice and Elder Independence of Maine for all the devoted hours of loving care they gave to Bridget.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Elder Independence of Maine or C.H.A.N.S. Healthcare and Hospice.
