Obituary for Iris Buzzell

Iris Buzzell
MILO & BANGOR – Iris Norma Buzzell, 87, passed away May 17, 2017, at a Bangor hospital. She was fortunate to be able to live independently until just before her hospitalization. She will be remembered by family and friends for her vast knowledge of Maine history and genealogy for many families in Piscataquis County.

Iris was the fifth of six children born to Perley J. and Gladys (Severance) Buzzell. She was born May 2, 1930, in Milo. She graduated from Milo High School in 1947, and has served for many years as a resource for the Milo Alumni Association. She worked as a bank teller at the Milo branch of Merrill Trust, later Fleet Bank, before transferring to the main offices where she worked in the commercial loan department. After her retirement from the bank, she spent several years volunteering for Literacy Volunteers and United Way.

Iris was predeceased by her parents, her siblings, Hope (Buzzell) Rideout, Ernest Buzzell, Harold Buzzell, Rachel (Buzzell) Smith, William Buzzell, and two nieces, Carol Cole and Paula Pinheiro-Buzzell. She is survived by her daughter, Janice (Buzzell) Clain, and several nieces and nephews. She will be remembered by special friends, Grace Wagner and Lam Liu Lai.

Graveside services will be held 1 p.m., Sunday, July 16, 2017 at Evergreen Cemetery, Milo. Friends and family may gather for a celebration of Iris’ life at the Milo Town Hall immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to remember Iris in a special way may make gifts in her memory to the Literacy Volunteers of Bangor, 354 Hogan Road, Bangor, ME 04401 or to the Milo Historical Society, 12 High St, Milo, ME 04463.
