Barbara Wilson Smith (or Sandy as many knew her) died suddenly on Tuesday February 28, 2017, at Southern Maine Health Center in Biddeford after a brief illness. Barbara was born November 10, 1931 in Waltham, Massachusetts to Kenneth Ingersoll and Mae Sangeleer Wilson. She was a 1949 graduate of Arlington High School and received her Secretarial degree from Burdette College in Boston, MA. She lived and worked for many years in the Littleton and Tewksbury, MA area. In 1971, she moved to California where she worked as a Certified Nurses Aid in the San Diego area. Barbara eventually made her way back to her beloved New England and settled in the Sanford, ME area where she met the love of her life, Edward (Don) Vezina. They made their home in Acton, Maine with their Maine Coon cat "Shadow."Barbara's greatest joy was being homemaker and loving partner to Don. She was the proud mother of four children: Danny Williams (deceased), David Williams (Terry) Dracut, MA, Holly Tucker (Michael) Norco, CA, and Carolyn Hatfield (Larry), Athens, GA.
