ROCKLAND – Vera Rose Lambert Pine, 104, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

She was born on January 29, 1916 on Deer Island, New Brunswick Canada. She married DeCosta Neve Pine on April 11, 1940 and together they had three children.

Vera grew up on Deer Island and was a hair dresser by trade. She and her husband moved their family to Rockland in 1953, where most of her time was spent raising their children.

She enjoyed gardening, dancing, ice skating, Red Sox, family, and dear friends. Everyone who knew Vera heard her stories of growing up on an island without electricity or phone, remembering the first time they got electricity and phone, attending a one room school house, her sister making a trek from Deer Island to St. Andrews on a frozen bay.

On her 100th birthday she became an American citizen. In Vera’s later years her dear friends, Lee, Glen, Nat, Charlotte, and Edna were always there to visit and take her on outings.

She was predeceased by her husband of 47 years, DeCosta Pine, parents Esther Stuart and Wallace Lambert, a brother, Wesley and sister Thelma. She is survived by three children, son Vincent Pine and his wife Patricia, daughter Vivian Kennedy and her husband Maurice, and son Maitland Pine and his wife Nola. 8 grandchildren, Kristen, Stephen, Kelli, Maurice, Peter, Todd, Andrew, and Ainslee; 13 great grandchildren, Alexis, Casey, Kaitlin, Marissa, Alexis, Trenton, Caden, Brady, Parker, Harrison, Nayla, Josie, and Sidney; and one great, great grandchild, Mason.

There will be a private family graveside service.

In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society, New England Division, 1 Main St., Suite 300, Topsham, ME 04086, or the American Diabetes Association, New England Chapter, 1260 Cochituate Rd. #200, Framingham, MA 01701
