Lhea Alexandra Sellick was born in Portland, Maine on a snowy Easter Sunday, to Susan and Shawn Sellick. She died on Palm Sunday in Edgecomb, at the home she shared with her partner of eight years, Remy Taylor of Massachusetts.
Lhea grew up on Lobster Cove in Boothbay Harbor, and was very close to her maternal grandparents. She attended Boothbay Harbor schools where she made many long time friends. Passionate about friends and family; she also loved animals, especially her cat, Obi. Lhea had renewed her faith in God and encouraged others to do so no matter what the problem.
Lhea is survived by her son, Michael Dean Pinkham III, of Wiscasset who she felt was her greatest accomplishment. Lhea remained very close to her son Michael’s Pinkham side of the family: father Michael Dean Pinkham II, and grandparents Louanne and Michael Dean Pinkham I of Wiscasset, and she loved them dearly. Survivors also include her mother and stepfather, Susan and Steven Gagnon of Newcastle; her father, Shawn Sellick of South Portland; and her siblings, Melissa Nix and Nicholas Sellick of Newcastle, and Victoria Sellick of South Portland; nephews, Curtis Bibber and Nicholas J. Sellick of Rockland; her niece, Madison Nix of Newcastle; her aunt, Mary Alice Racz of Bath; her uncle, Stephen Racz and her great uncle, Chester Fossett both of Boothbay Harbor. There are many other family members who she loved loudly and enthusiastically.
Lhea was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Stephen and Evelyn Racz of Boothbay Harbor; her paternal grandparents, Gordon and Virginia Sellick of Portland; and her great aunt, Alice Fossett of Boothbay Harbor.
Lhea will be dearly missed by her family. There will be no service at this time, but please remember Lhea and celebrate her on her birthday, April 22. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to GoFundMe in support of Lhea’s son, Michael.
