Lucille H. Conary – The Lincoln County News


Lucille H. Conary passed away peacefully on the morning of February 24, 2022, after being lovingly cared for by her family. She was 90 years old. She was born on May 14, 1931, the fourth of 10 children of the late Benjamin and Bertha Moody Perry.

Lucille grew up in Warren and attended local schools and graduated from Warren High School with the Class of 1949. Lucille worked as a waitress at Ben Davis’ Bus Stop Diner throughout high school. Later, she threw Lucille’s Dairy Freez to Warren; it was a favorite local spot for morning coffee, breakfast, lunch and ice cream. Lucille was General Manager of Bonnar-Vawter Business Forms in Rockland for several years. She then began keeping the books for her husband’s construction company, HA Conary Construction. She worked alongside her husband in many of the homes he built and traveled many miles to find the materials and parts needed. She and Henry retired together in 1992.

She loved spending time with her family at their camps, the first one they built on Moosehead Lake, then bought a camp on Crawford Lake in Warren, then eventually owned another on East Grand Lake in Danforth. Many family members spent special moments there.

Lucille, affectionately known as Nannie, loved spending as much time as possible with her family. On snow days at school, all the grandkids sled and snowmobile at her house. Henry (Bumpie) was getting the sleds ready and the kids were out all day being towed by the snowmobile around the huge backyard. Then, inside, they would go get his famous snowmobile cake. Lucille hosted the Perry family’s annual Thanksgiving at White Oak Grange Hall where she and her loved ones prepared a feast for the whole family, a year with more than 70 people in attendance. For Christmas, she was hosting the family in the garage of the Powder Mill Road house as they had outgrown the family home. Everyone was looking forward to having a serving of their famous Seafood Newburg. There were so many wonderful memories made there.

Lucille has organized and hosted many Perry family get-togethers over the years, as well as many lobster dinners. Family was important to her and it showed.

Lucille always sought to help others whenever she could. She helped with the food pantry run by members of the Warren Baptist Church and was always ready to drive anyone who needed her to doctor’s appointments or errands around town. She enjoyed volunteering at the Warren Library helping to browse through the entire collection and updating records. She came up with ideas to remodel the floor to accommodate the beautiful children’s section of the library. Lucille was a warm person who always wore a smile and was known to give the best hugs. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Henry Conary; one daughter-in-law, Deborah Ann Conary Williams; and siblings, Ralph Perry, Barbara Fernald, Ernest Perry and Willis Perry; as well as a granddaughter, Leslie Carey.

Survivors include his children, Pamela J. Carey, of Washington, and Willis D. Conary and his wife, Vicky, of Warren; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she loved; siblings, Lorraine Jones, of Cushing, Jim Perry and his wife, Carol, of Waldoboro, Dick Perry and his wife, Betty, of Indiana, John (Jack) Perry and his wife, LaQuita, of Texas, and Mary Orne and her husband, Ralph, of New Mexico; as well as several nieces and nephews.
