VEAZIE and BANGOR – Barbara (Smith) Bagley, 89, passed away peacefully Feb. 19, 2013, in Bangor, with her loving family by her side. She was born Sept. 25, 1923, in Bangor, daughter of Stephen and Caroline (Schoppe) Smith.
She grew up in Orono on the family farm on Park Street. She attended Orono schools and graduated from Orono High School, where she met the love of her life, Holand Bagley. After graduation, Barbara attended Husson College and worked at Standard Shoe Co., Bangor. Holand enlisted in the Army and while he was overseas, they kept in touch through letters and postcards. When Holand returned from the war, they were engaged and on June 23, 1946, they were married. Barbara was a homemaker and caregiver her entire life. She was involved in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and was an active member of Orono Methodist Church and Veazie Congregational Church, where she was a member of Ladies Aid.
Barbara is survived by her daughter, Mary Caroline Skaggs and her husband, Tom, of Stillwater and their children, Aaron, Amy, Jeff, Jenny and Jori; sons, David R. Bagley and his wife, Mary, of Veazie and their children, Michael and Alex; Harvey C. Bagley and his wife, Marion, of Veazie and their children, Christopher and Kelly; and Robert L. Bagley and his wife, Michelle, of Glenburn and their children, Amanda and Benjamin. She is also survived by 14 great-grandchildren, several sisters-in-law, many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Holand; daughter, Betsy; and brothers, Philip and Wellington Smith. She now joins Holand and Betsy in heaven, where we are sure she will be cooking and caring for someone. Rest in peace, Mom.
Interment will be in the spring at Fairview Cemetery, Veazie. (Bangor Daily News posted 2.20.2013)
