Cecile E. Guay, 86, of 800 Main Street, Lewiston, died Tuesday, February 23, 2016, at the Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice in Auburn. Born in Lewiston on March 25, 1929, she was the daughter of Albert and Mildred Morse Bourgea. In 1950 she married Gerald A. Guay, and together they raised their two children. Gerald passed away on August 22, 2013. She was educated in local schools, and earned her GED at the age of 61. She worked as a spinner at Bate’s Fabrics for 43 years, retiring at age 60. She was a true fan of the Boston Red Sox and never missed watching a game, and also enjoyed watching the New England Patriots.  She was also an avid card player, but what gave her the greatest joy was being around her family, whom she loved dearly. Survivors include her daughter, Lorraine Merrick of Lewiston, her son, Raymond and wife Linda of Lisbon Falls, four grandchildren; Maureen, Kathy, Zack, and Brandon, two great-grandchildren, Jake and Rivers, and several nieces and nephews, including a special nephew, Ronnie. She also leaves behind her beloved cat T-T and grand dog Willie. Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by a son-in-law, Asa Merrick. The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice House for the loving care they gave Cecile during her final illness.
