Lee A. Vincent of Falmouth died July 22 at the JML Care Center in Falmouth. She was 91.
Ms. Vincent was born in Taunton, the daughter of Francis S. and Alice (Judge) Cordeiro.
She married Samuel Vincent in 1948. The marriage later ended in divorce.
She attended University of Delaware and was a graduate of the Swain School of Design, which is now part of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth College of Visual and Performing Arts.
She worked in public relations, first in New York City for Alitalia Airlines and later for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
She was a lifelong learner. In 1987, she returned to college and obtained a master’s degree from Cambridge College School of Education in Counseling Psychology. She worked as a full-time social worker until her retirement in 2007.
But she was always an artist and designer and, as her daughters described her, a “fashionista.” She served on the board of the Falmouth Artists’ Guild and was co-owner with Doris T. Tassinari of two antique consignment shops, the Coal Scuttle Exchange off Town Hall Square in Falmouth and the other of the same name in Newport, Rhode Island.
She leaves her sister, Dorothy Peterson of Falmouth, and two daughters Shelley V. Vincent of Rockport and Nancy V. McDonald of Essex Connecticut; five grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.
Services will be held privately at a later date.
