BRIDGTON — Patricia Ann “Pat” Buck, 82, of Stoneham, died early Tuesday morning, Sept. 8, 2015, at the Bridgton Health & Residential Care Center.

She was born on Nov. 3, 1932, in Lewiston, a daughter of Chester Lee and Edith Eliza (Merrill) Holt. She attended Bridgton Academy.

On June 25, 1950, she married, Carroll “Squeak” Buck Sr. in North Waterford. The date of June 25th was a significant one within the family as it was also the date of marriage for two of Squeak’s sisters, Stella Thompson and Lucille Buck.

Pat and Squeak made their home in Stoneham for many years as she worked at the Waterford Spool Mill, Crooked River Dowel, and later at the Saunders Mill in Bridgton.

She and Squeak loved to dance and did so as often as they could over the years, as well as snowmobiling and going for motorcycle rides. In retirement, she enjoyed reading and keeping a daily journal. Those close to her will always remember her quick wit and wonderful sense of humor.

Pat is survived by her children, Chester Buck of Stoneham, Terry Buck and his wife Mary Jane of Turner, Carroll Buck Jr. of North Waterford, Vickie Pike and her husband Steven of Waterford, and Cynthia Fox and her husband Peter of Stoneham; siblings, Arthur Holt and his wife Shirley of North Waterford, Arlin Holt and his wife Brenda of North Waterford, and Sharon McAllister and her husband Dennis of Stoneham; grandchildren, Tanya Fox, Lynn McCuaig, Misty Allen, Sarah Buck, Samuel Buck, Melissa Evans, and Travis Fox; and 13 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Squeak, on Aug. 4, 2005; and a sister, Eleanor “Ellie” Kimball on March 10, 1997.

Memorial graveside services will be held at 11 a.m., Sat., Sept. 19, at the Hillside Cemetery in Stoneham. A reception will be held at the Stoneham Fire Station following the service. Gifts maybe given in Pat’s memory to the East Stoneham Congregational Church, c/o Deborah Jones, 20 Barker Rd., Stoneham, ME 04231. Arrangements are in the care of the Wood Funeral Home, 9 Warren St., Fryeburg. Words of condolence and tribute may be shared with Pat’s family at www.woodfuneralhome.org
