Lee Cressey passed away peacefully on April 5, 2021, at Gosnell Memorial Hospice in Scarborough after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born on Sept. 8, 1963, the daughter of Janis and Churchill Cressey and married the love of her life, Dan Warner, in 2017.

Lee made friends easily. She was always cheerful and willing to tackle any project. Spending time on her farm with her animals and sitting in the sun feeling the warm breeze on her face brought her happiness, as did going to the beach with her dog, Maggie Mae. She loved her community, and they loved her right back. Their many messages of support brought her comfort and hope throughout her illness.

Lee grew up in Kennebunk and graduated from Kennebunk High School. She attended Westbrook Junior College and served on the Kennebunk Fire/Rescue as a licensed ambulance attendant for a number of years.

For over 21 years, Lee has been a go-to person at Kennebunk Ace Hardware. She will be remembered for knowing where everything was in the store and patiently answering questions. Her cheerful, sweet attitude won the hearts of her customers. It’s certain that she is smiling down with a twinkle in her eye as she watches people tackle their projects and figure out their paint colors without her!

Lee was predeceased by her parents, Janis and Churchill Cressey, and her step-mother, Phebe Cressey. She is survived by her loving husband, Dan Warner of Arundel; her brother and sister-in-law, George and Susan Cressey, of Kennebunk; a sister, Melissa Jackson, of Wells; and a step-brother, Robert Akers, of Kennebunk. She is also survived by her mother and father-in-law, Claudette and Roy Warner, as well as brothers-in-law, Dennis and David Warner. Lee loved her nephews, Brian (Christine) Cressey, Eric (Anna) Cressey, and Kyle Jackson. She adored her great nieces and nephew.
