Alice Lucile Abbott, 82
PORTLAND - Alice Lucile Abbott, 82, of Portland, died peacefully on June 11, 2017, at Parkland Medical Center in Derry, N.H., after a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease.
She was born on August 22, 1934, to Lucile (Hobson) and Bonaparte Abbott. She had been a resident of Portland until needed care prompted a move to New Hampshire where she resided at Windham Terrace for the past 15 months.
Alice was a graduate of Deering High School ('52) and Keystone Junior College ('54). She had a career in Portland as a medical secretary in various physicians' offices, retiring from Cardiovascular and Thoracic Associates in 1999.
Music played an important role in her life. Alice was a long-time member of the former Immanuel Baptist Church where she sang in the choir. A student of Kathryn Graffam, she played cello in high school and in Portland Junior Symphony Orchestra. She had been a member of the Royal River Chorus of Sweet Adelines International for over 20 years.
Alice enjoyed traveling with friends or a special cousin, Ethel Abbott of Oneida, N.Y., and especially enjoyed family gatherings and many "sisters weekends" with her siblings. During retirement she volunteered at Longfellow School, at Maine Medical Center's breast cancer support group calling on patients after their surgery, and as an usher for the Lyric Theatre. She served as treasurer of the Maplewood Cemetery Association for a number of years.
She is survived by three sisters, Ruth Schauer of Ft. Atkinson, Wisc., Nancy (Steve) Burton of Damariscotta, and Marjorie Palmer of Derry, N.H. She leaves two special nieces, Andrea Schauer (Jeff Hamm) of Madison, Wisc., and Melissa Polk of Derry, N.H.; three nephews, David (Paula) Palmer of Concord, N.H., Jonathan (Sara) Burton of No. Grafton, Mass., and Andrew (Susan) Burton of No. Grafton, Mass.; and several cousins.
Following cremation, a graveside service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday July 2, 2017, at Laurel Hill Cemetery, 293 Beach St, Saco. The Peabody Funeral Homes and Crematorium of Derry, N.H. is assisting with arrangements. To send a condolence, please visit,
