BRUNSWICK — Grace T. Farjeon, age 92 of Brunswick, died peacefully on Saturday, December 24, 2011 at Horizons Living and Rehabilitation Center.

Grace was born in New York on March 30, 1919, the youngest of five children to Harry and Grace Thorne Farjeon.

Grace attended Brearly School in New York and graduated with a B.A. from the University of Chicago. She faithfully served her country in the U. S. Navy during WWII, and earned the rank of Lieutenant. Grace declined to receive the Veteran’s Bonus, believing that "she did not deserve a reward for serving her country in a time of war."

For many years, she worked as a counselor at Smith College where she served as the Director of Placement for students.

Grace had lived in Maine for over 10 years coming from East Hampton, Mass. She was known for her " sharp wit and wonderful sense of humor". Grace’s family would like to thank Neighbors, Horizon, The Highlands, Mary Boie, and Ruth Lyons, her friend for over 25 years and helper for the last five years, for the care she received.

She never married and is predeceased by her four sisters.

Grace is survived by many nieces and nephews.

A time of visitation and remembrance will be held from 6 to 8pm Wednesday, January 11, at the Brackett Funeral Home, 29 Federal Street, Brunswick. Condolences can be expressed at
