Barbara Blood

LOVELL — Barbara (Bobbie) Blood, 85, of Lovell passed away Monday morning, March 14th at Bridgton Hospital. She was born in Waterford on April 5, 1925, the daughter of Clarence Kimball and Blanch (Morse) Kimball of Waterford. Bobbie grew up in North Waterford with her grandparents Merl and Susie (Morse) Grant. She is predeceased by her husband Merton W. Blood. She is survived by six children: Steve and wife Gail, Pat Thurston and husband Bruce, Rod and wife Jennifer, Carol Flanders and husband Leslie, Scott and wife Penney, Louise Ramsay and husband Bob; thirteen grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren.

Bobbie was a hard worker, working in and out of the home. She enjoyed working in her flower gardens but most of all she enjoyed her children, grandchildren and family gatherings.

The family would like to thank the staff at Bridgton Hospital for their kind and special care that they gave to their mother in her time of need. At Bobbie’s request there will be no visiting hours or funeral service. A graveside service will be held at #4 Cemetery in Lovell later in the spring. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, “for Bobbie’s love of her animals,” 1389 Bridgton Road, Rt. 302, Fryeburg, ME 04037 or to Fryeburg Rescue, P.O. 177, Fryeburg, ME 04037.
