WEST BATH – Barbara J. Alexander Page, 70, formerly of Topsham, passed away Saturday, Feb 7, after a courageous battle with cancer. She died peacefully at her home in West Bath; which she shared with her daughter.

She was born Dec. 25, 1938, in Lewiston, the daughter of Archibald M. Ayer and Margaret E. (Carr) Ayer. She attended Lisbon High School, then went on to marry and raise three children.

She was a homemaker for many years until she started a career in caring for the elderly at the Bath Nursing Home. She then advanced her career to administrative functions at the Falmouth By The Sea Care Facility. She later became a part of the Rousseau Enterprises organization as office manager at Dionne Commons and remained employed there until her death.

She found an extended family within the Rousseau Enterprises Organization, with special consideration to the Dionne Commons staff and residents. One of her many enjoyments during the day was to intermingle with and play chair volleyball with the residents/staff. Her office was always open for a visitor and a smile always received.

She especially enjoyed spending time with her family, grandchildren and much adored great-grandchildren. She enjoyed dancing, playing bingo, e-mail and playing cribbage on the Internet and reading autobiographies. She truly enjoyed the Christmas holiday season.

Surviving are her stepfather, Chester L. Gott of Springhill, Fla.; sister, Patricia Lapointe of Danvers, Mass.; two sons, William G. Alexander Jr. and Steven W. Alexander and his wife, Jane, all of Topsham; a daughter, Carol J. Alexander of West Bath; grandchildren, Ryan Trudell of Lewiston, Tracey Clinton and her husband, Jay, of Hawaii, Alyssa Briere and her husband, DJ, of Topsham and Steven W. Alexander of Boothbay; great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

The oldest of six siblings, she was predeceased by a brother, Allen “Buddy” Ayer; sister, Kathleen Bernson; and a stepmother Marie Ayer.
