ROCKLAND - Frances Lord Huntley, 94, passed away in to the arms of God on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at the Knox Center in Rockland following a period of declining health.
Frances had been a resident of Rockland since 2003 and attended First Baptist and Lakeview Presbyterian Churches.
Born in Bennington VT on January 13, 1925 to Arthur and Ruth (Blanchard) Lord, she grew up in Francestown NH and graduated from Peterborough High School. Following High School, she attended the University of NH where she met her husband, World War II Navy Vetetran Quentin Huntley.
Following his graduation in 1949, together with Quentin’s parents, they farmed a 300-acre Ayrshire farm in Alstead, NH, where their three children, Dana, Paul and Sara, were born.
In the late 1950s and 60’s, as the family grew up, they lived for some years in Weare and Walpole, NH. Along the way, Frances graduated from Keene State College with a double major in home economics and education. Over the ensuing years she taught elementary school in Acworth, Weare, and Antrim, NH, as well as in Kinston, NC. She had been a resident of Peterborough, NH for years and attended Monadnock Congregational Church before moving to Rockland.
In a life marked by devotion to God, Frances spent many years teaching Sunday School and Vacation Bible School and was active with Child Evangelism Fellowship as a teacher and camp counselor. She loved baking, gardening, sewing and was accomplished at all. She also was an avid reader and played the piano. Frances was also a studied and prolific painter in pastels and acrylics of New England landscapes, portraits and still life.
Frances was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Rev. Quentin Huntley, in 2001, as well as her sister, Polly Lord Hanns, and her brother, Charles Lord.
She is survived by her children, Dana and Janet Huntley, of Epping, NH; Paul and Karen Huntley of Winter Garden, FL; and Sara Huntley of Rockland, ME; 11 grandchildren: Jeremy Gnade, Rachel Crawford, Hannah Jones, Caleb Lachance, Eric Huntley, Lori Ortman, Kristen Waterbury, Scott Huntley, Gillian Boyd, Miranda Wegricht, Taylor Huntley, and 18 great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be held at 12:00 pm on Friday, January 17, 2020 at Lakeview Presbyterian Church, 188 Rockland Street in Rockport followed by a celebration of her life at 1:00 pm with the Rev. Stephen Tracy officiating.
A private burial will be held on a later date in Village Cemetery in Thomaston.
In Lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations be made in her memory to Penbay Christian School, 1 Waldo Ave. Rockland ME 04841
