Ann E. (Bragdon) Bathgate
1953 - 2017
ALBION - Ann E. (Bragdon) Bathgate, 64, of Albion, died unexpectedly at her home on Dec. 1, 2017. She was born July 7, 1953, in Waterville, the daughter of Robert and Lorraine (Jordan) Bragdon.
She obtained her GED at Winslow High School, Class of 1970. While raising a family, she attended University of Maine Augusta to earn an associate degree in general science in 1986. She and her family moved to Florida in 1988, and she worked at MD How as a trucking dispatcher.
After a few years, she wanted to go further with her education, so they moved to Alabama so she could attend University of South Alabama, getting her bachelor's degree in 1997.
After graduating, she then went to work as a paramedic for many years before going on to teach classes in the field of emergency medicine at several universities in both Alabama and Florida. Her last job was as a flight paramedic, a job she loved and enjoyed.
Ann enjoyed camping, reading, chatting with online friends, traveling to different countries, and raising her children and grandchildren.
She was anxiously waiting for her first great-granddaughter, Payton Marie, to arrive. Now she will be her angel and watch her from above.
She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Stephen Bathgate Sr., of Albion; sons, Stephen Jr. and wife Elizabeth, of Fairfield; and Peter, of Windham; daughter, Andrea, of Albion; brother, Kenneth Bragdon, of Vassalboro; sisters, Janet Cross and husband Mike, of West Virginia; Deanna Works and husband Dwayne, of Oakland; and Norma Allen and partner Ronnie Dudley, of Vassalboro; brothers-in-law, Peter Bathgate and wife Connie, of Waldoboro; and David Bathgate, of Connecticut; grandchildren, Cameron Bathgate, Brandon Wheeler, Gabriel Bathgate, and Elizabeth Bathgate, all of Albion; Juliana Bathgate, of Fairfield; Tyler Williams and Renee Cotton, of Alabama; and Faith Ann Jones, of Augusta; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Ann was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Lorraine (Jordan) Bragdon; daughter, Stephany Wheeler; sisters, Christine Bilodeau and Mary Martell; nieces, Jamie and Aria; father and mother-in-law, Peter and Elizabeth Bathgate; sister-in-law, Susan Bathgate; and brother-in-law, William Bathgate.
Ann will be missed by all who knew her.
