Cathy M. (Pooler) Cushing

South Portland, ME - Cathy Mae Cushing left this world on June 14, 2018 in Scarborough, Maine after a long courageous battle with cancer.  

She was born in Portland, Maine, October 6, 1950; the daughter of Stanley H Pooler and Catherine A Spiller. She was raised in South Portland, Maine attending South Portland schools.

After retiring from Unum in 2013, Cathy spent much of her time with family and friends at her campsite in Naples, Maine. She loved traveling, making numerous trips to Nevada to visit with her son and enjoying the many sites and stops along the way.

Cathy was a breath of fresh air to all she encountered. She always had a warm smile and a hearty laugh to share. She will be greatly missed by all who came to know and love her.

Cathy was predeceased by her parents; husband Elliott Cushing, his brother, Stanley Pooler and his wife LeeAnne. She is survived by her loving partner Francis J Millett of South Portland, son Elliot Cushing and partner Scott Bernier of Las Vegas, Nevada, son Brian Cushing and his wife Kriss of Waterboro, Maine, sisters Ellen Nielsen of Old Orchard Beach and Bobby Ellis of Berwick and brother Phillip Pooler and his wife Dawn of Kennebunk, along with several nieces and nephews.

Her family wishes to thank the staff of nurses and doctors at MMC for their loving and professional care.
