Lucille T. (Treamer) Burgess, 90
CAPE ELIZABETH -- Lucille T. (Treamer) Burgess, 90, of Village Crossings in Cape Elizabeth, and formerly of Ipswich, Mass., died on Friday, June 7, 2013, at Mercy Hospital in Portland following her short illness. She was the wife of the late William E. Burgess Jr.
Born in Wakefield, Mass., on Dec. 27, 1922, only child of the late Harold W. and Nellie (Walker) Treamer, she was raised in Lynnfield, Mass., and was a graduate of Lynnfield public schools.
Due to her husband Bill's job he and Lucille traveled the United States from Florida to Hawaii. Following his death 1966 she moved to Ipswich. During her years in Ipswich she was employed at the former Cable Memorial Hospital in Ipswich until its closure in 1979 then worked at the former Hunt Hospital in Danvers, Mass., until its closure in 1990.
Lucille moved to Cape Elizabeth in 2010 to be closer to her family. It was a very hard decision for her, as she had to leave behind many friends and her home of 44 years.
She is survived by two nephews, Brian Denison and his wife Maryanne of Cape Elizabeth, Jeffrey Denison of Scarborough; great-nephews, William and Matthew Denison of Cape Elizabeth; and brother-in-law, Arthur Denison and his wife Doris of Saco.
The family would like to thank the staff at Village Crossings in Cape Elizabeth for their loving care to Lucille as she transitioned from independent to assisted living. A special thanks to Helen at Village Crossings who Lucille was honored to call a friend.
