Sarah E. Littlefield
Sarah E. Littlefield, 78, of Sebago and Bridgton, passed away June 20, 2012 at Androscoggin Hospice House after a long illness.
Sarah was born June 1, 1934 in Orono, one of eight children to John Lawrence Taylor and Charlotte Ella Whitney. She was raised by her grandfather, Oswald Luck, and lived in North Bridgton. She married Norman Littlefield and they moved to Sebago, where they raised their four children. Early in her marriage, she would go house-to-house as a beautician; a trade she was very proud of. In the mid 1960s, she began her long work career at Bridgton Knitting Mill. She left there after 24 years due to health reasons. Sarah was a dedicated worker, often working double shifts in order to help provide for her family. Sarah was also very dedicated to her family. For years, while still working the night shift at the mill, she would take care of her grandchildren during the day. She loved having family around and truly appreciated impromptu visits from friends.
After her husband died in 2003, Sarah was even more involved with doing for others. She loved to knit hats and mittens, mostly for children. All of her grandchildren have been the proud receiver of at least one pair of mittens to start each winter. She also would knit items for hospitals NIC units and donated many hat and mitten sets to local daycare providers.
Sarah is survived by her children, Cindy of Bridgton and Pennsylvania, Kenny of Sebago, David of Sebago and Michael-Paul of Bridgton, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; her brother, Otis of Lewiston; her sister, Ginny of New Hampshire; as well as many nieces and nephews.
There will be no funeral service. If anyone wishes to make a donation in her name, the family suggests Androscoggin Hospice House.
