Remembering Nancy Burke

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Nancy Burke, following her courageous battle with cancer. Nancy served for 17 years as the administrative assistant for three headmasters, Dr. Joseph Curry, Mr. Wink Lampe and Dr. James Tracy. Her unwavering dedication and professional contributions to Cushing are remembered with heartfelt gratitude, and her friendship will be deeply missed and forever remembered.

Earlier this year, the Cushing community rallied together to raise money for a granite block, which will be installed in the new athletic center. Nancy was really touched by this gesture, and all of us look forward to having this special spot on campus to rememeber her by.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Bill and their families.
Please click here to read her obituary. Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, March 10, at 10:30 a.m. at the Philbin-Comeau Funeral Home, located at 176 Water Street, Clinton, MA.
