FARMINGTON — Priscilla B. Bubar, 92, of Farmington, formerly of Littleton, died peacefully on Saturday, Nov. 21, at Orchard Park Rehabilitation and Living Center in Farmington.

She was born Feb. 18, 1923, in Arlington, Mass., the daughter of Maj. Lewis Merrill Bullock and Martha (Steele) Bullock. She received her education in Massachusetts schools and graduated from Northfield Seminary in East Northfield, Mass. She continued her education at Colby Sawyer Junior College in New London, N.H., where she earned her bachelor’s degree in medical technology.

She worked for one year under a registered pathologist at Boston City Hospital, and then opened a laboratory in a clinic at Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. in Boston. In 1947, she married Treston Bubar. They returned in 1949 to Littleton to raise their family on the family farm.

Her hobbies included reading, sewing, quilting, painting, drawing, knitting, crocheting and flower-gardening.


On her behalf, her family would like to extend special thanks to Orchard Park Rehabilitation and Living Center for the kind, loving, considerate care given to her and to the Beacon Hospice Care for their care and support.
