ROCKLAND – Wanda J. Bridges, 64, died Thursday, October 17, 2019, at the Sussman House in Rockport, surrounded by her children, sisters and best friend, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Rockland, August 17, 1955, she was the daughter of Floyd B., Sr. and Waneta J. Nason Randall. She attended local schools.

Wanda developed a ‘hard work ethic’ during her youth as she raked blueberries and dug clams. For a while, she worked at National Sea Products.

After moving to Bangor, she completed studies and training as a Certified Nurses Assistant. After earning her CNA, she did private duty care as well as healthcare agency work. Returning to Rockland, she worked several years at the Camden Healthcare Center. After recuperating from a heart attack, she worked briefly at Shore Village Nursing Center in Rockland, from which she retired.

In her retirement, Wanda has been devoted to her children and grandchildren who were the ‘light-of-her-life’.
She enjoyed camping with her family, family gatherings, and going to dances, particularly those where Otto Proctor’s band was playing. She was a member of the Winslow-Holbrook-Merritt American Legion Post No.1, Ladies Auxiliary.

Other than her parents, Wanda was pre-deceased by her husband, Clarence F. Bridges, Sr.; five brothers, Floyd Jr., Delmar, William, Jack and James Randall and one sister, Georgia Ripley. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Michael and Jessica Carver, Amanda and Craig Christianson, David and Amy Carver; her sisters, Priscilla Davis, Darlene Whiffen and her husband Jonathan; her brother, Tony Randall and his wife Michelle; her life-long friend, Darlene Proctor; 10 grandchildren, Dominic, Michaela, Matthew, Tayla, Makenzie, Korah, Scarlett, Noah, Dylan and Logan, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Friends and relatives are invited to visit from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, Tuesday, October 22, 2019, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland, where a funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm, Wednesday, October 23rd. Mr. Jake Barbour will officiate. Private burial will be at a later date in Achorn Cemetery, Rockland.

So many memories over the years with Wanda. She was a piece of our family that we shared many laughs with. Wanda nicknamed my husband "Scratch" due to his scratch ticket habits. She would tell him that he could just keep donating to the state of Maine (we live in Washington State). Wanda was always witty and don't you try to get one up on her she would always come back with something better! We also recently called her to sing her "Happy Birthday" and her comeback was that was her best birthday present all day. I told her that she could not go anywhere because we would need to see her next summer when we come back to visit, I guess she got tired of waiting on us. Someday again Wanda someday. Our hears are broken over the loss of this wonderful, strong woman. Until we meet again Wanda fly high.
