Anne Lucille McCann 1919 - 2014
NEW GLOUCESTER -- Anne Lucille McCann. Lucille was born in Metcalf, Ga. May 8, 1919, the eldest daughter of Hubert H and Anne Bell Barwick, Sr . Educated in Thomasville and graduated from Thomasville High School class of 1937. She went on to school working summers in resorts up and down the east coast. While working at the Ocean Side Resort she met the love of her life C. Leon McCann, Jr., and they were married in Thomasville on April 21, 1940. Shortly thereafter they moved to Maine. Living in a few several places in New Gloucester, they finally settled at the McCann Homestead on Bald Hill Road. It was there they raised their three sons John, Bill and Dick.
Lucille worked several jobs in her lifetime, including B Peck and Cole Farms, and retired from the Bates College Book Store. However, after retirement, being a people person, she went back to work as a Hostess at Cole Farms, a job she dearly loved. It kept her in touch with her friends, especially her good friend Merilyn. She was also active in the town, PTA, Room Mother, Farm Bureau, Evening Guild, Past Matron of Golden Sheaf Chapter, and she regularly attended The First Congregational Church of New Gloucester. She loved New Gloucester and all the people in it. She was actually attending a town meeting when stricken ill May 5.
Lucille never let her age stand in the way of what she wanted to do. She drove herself to church, appointments, shopping with her friends, and anywhere within reason. Her greatest personal love was her family. Gram, as she was mostly called, was always at family functions, baseball games, basketball games, soccer games, recitals, graduations, weddings, and all. She was a fixture of family activity and everyone loved her.
Aside from family, her second love was her garden, and she

could hardly wait for spring to come so that she could get out there and groom it into the beautiful spot it is. Each year brought additions and revisions that kept her busy until fall.
She returned to Ga. almost every year after retirement and enjoyed spending time with her siblings Hubert, Bill and Christine, all of whom she was very close.
Lucille 'Gram ' was a very loving, caring, one of a kind person and made the world a better place to live.
She is survived by her son Dick and daughters-in law Jill, Pat and Lynda; her sister Christine; grandchildren Linda, Pam (Mike), Donna (Steve), Billy, Terry (Frank), Heidi (Drew), Beth (Clint), Rob (Sarah), Rick (Sarah), Dennis (Lisa), Jodi (Todd), Dan (Wendy), Jon (Angela) and Christy (Paul); great-grandchildren Seth, Lucas, Megan, Mandi, Deni, Matt, Jenny, Emily, Colin, Jackson, Logan, William, Ricky D, Nick, Dennis, David, Thomas, Brandin, Trevor, Dylan, Cody, Ben, Victoria, Jonny, Zach, Matty, Isaac, Oliver, Jordan, Solomon, and Levi; as well as great-great grandchildren Blake, Kamron, Avy, Anna, Tyler, Gabriel, Chakotay, Gavin, Bryan, Max, and Bella; many nieces and nephews; and a special sister-in-law Lois.
