Wilda Blake (Stewart) LaBree
PARKMAN- Wilda Blake (Stewart) LaBree, 84, wife of the late Loredo "Fred" LaBree, died November 23, 2012 at Dexter Health Care. Wilda was welcomed into the world by her parents, Earl and Emma (Blake) Stewart, of Parkman, along with her sisters, Thalma, Theda, Edna, Ellen, Alice, Alda, Margaret, and brother, Merl "Buddy", on June 28, 1928.

Wilda attended Parkman and Greenville schools through the eighth grade. She worked for the Department of Corrections as a sewing instructor, in Skowhegan and Hallowell, for thirteen years, a job she truly loved. She also worked at Guilford Industries and Hardwood Products Company throughout the years.

Wilda and Fred were married October 1, 1948, just in time for the hunting season, a sport that she loved. She didn't like to brag, but has at least twenty five deer to her credit. Wilda and Fred enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping together with family and friends. Her hobbies were sewing, crocheting, knitting, and collecting anything to do with polar bears.

They lived in Skowhegan for over 20 years, then built their home in 1971, on the property where she grew up in Parkman, where she lived until failing health forced her to reside at Dexter Health Care.

Wilda was predeceased by her parents, husband, brother and six sisters.

She is survived by her son, Brent and his wife, Judy of CA; a stepson, Richard and his wife, Phyllis of Milo; a stepdaughter, Betty; a sister, Edna "Mary" Grant of GA; grandchildren, Gregory, Vicky, Susan, Richard, Debbie, Cline, and Alice; great granddaughter, Susie; special nieces, Lotie and Al Petrovsky, Lorraine Leeman, Dottie Harmon, and great niece, Loretta, and Ron Norsworthy; many other cousins, nieces and nephews, too numerous to mention; also special friends, and neighbors, Hal and Marilyn Currier, John and Donna Cruz, and Sharon and John Nichols, all of Parkman.

No public services are planned. Burial will be in the Pingree Center Cemetery. Cremation arrangements by Crosby & Neal, Guilford.
