Rebecca R. Lothrop

May 02, 2016

Rebecca R. Lothrop, 91, died April 27, 2016, at home with her daughters Peggy and Patty by her side. She was born April 13 1925, in St. Albans, the daughter of William and Dora Rediker. She graduated from Crosby High School in 1943 and from the first graduating class of the United States Cadet Nurse Corps. Becky worked side by side with her husband Roger, who fondly referred to her as “Honeypoop,” operating Lothrop Ford in Belfast. Becky was a longtime member of Belfast Curling Club and Northport Golf Club. She always was proud to share the fact she’d made two holes-in-one with her grandchildren and sons-in-law. She was also an active member of Waldo County Hospital Aid.

The most important thing to Becky was her family. She couldn’t wait to see her daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren. She enjoyed family gatherings when she would cook a big meal for everyone. One of Becky’s favorite times of the year was Christmas Eve when she opened her home to family and friends to celebrate the holiday season with all the people she cherished and loved.

She was pre-deceased by her husband Roger, who she fondly referred to as “Teeball,” her oldest daughter Pamela, five brothers and five sisters. She is survived by her two daughters Peggy and her husband Francis Bronsberg and Patricia and her husband Timothy Clark. Also, six grandchildren, Roger Marx and his wife Cathy, Richard Marx Jr. and his wife Heather, Teryn Traynham and her husband Ryan, Kristy Scullion and her husband David, Brandon Clark and his wife Lindsey, Danielle Clark and also several great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Maine General Hospice in Gardiner, with a special thanks to Dr. Dohner; Stephanie Berry, her nurse; Julie Cloutier, her aid; and Bill Meyer, her hospice chaplin, for the amazing support and care they provided our family and Becky.

A memorial service will be held at the First Congregational Church in Belfast on July 16 at 1 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Maine General Hospice, 10 Water St., Suite 307, Waterville ME 04901.

Arrangements are under the care of Riposta Funeral Home, 182 Waldo Ave., Belfast. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at
