Jeanne Claire Cambridge, 80, of Portland passed away May 8, 2017 at her home. She was loved and cherished by all her family. Through her battle with cancer she taught us that laughter is the best medicine and to be strong for one another. She was a tiny woman with a huge heart.

She was the daughter of Charles and Jeanette Boivin of St. Johnsbury, VT. She attended St. Johnsbury Academy in Vermont, graduating in 1955. She was married to the love of her life, whom she met when she came to Portland for a couple of weeks, and stayed for a lifetime.

She is survived by her husband Leon Cambridge; her children Allison Pelletier and husband Bruce of Bingham, Robert Cambridge of Florida, Jay Cambridge and wife Stacy of Windham, and Karen Cambridge of Auburn; as well as 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren; her brothers Charles Boivin and wife Jeannine of South Portland, and Victor Boivin and wife Cecile of St. Johnsbury, VT.

A graveside service will be held at 2 PM Thursday, May 11, at Evergreen Cemetery, Portland. On line condolences may be expressed at

Dear Mr Cambridge, Allison, Bobby, Jay and Karen. We were so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We remember her well from our days on Pinecrest Road. My brother, Andrew put together some home movies and there was quite a bit of Jay on them! I remember sleep overs with Allison and lots of neighborhood kick ball games. What wonderful memories and I hope they comfort you during this time. Blessings,
Margaret, Lori, Andrew, Steven (Lori's son) and Will (Andrew's son)

Dear Mr. Cambridge, I believe you worked with my dad Frank Swift (who passed away 7 years ago) when you both were in sales for Robin Hood Flour. I was very sorry to read that your wife recently passed away. I do remember her from when I was a child. May happy memories sustain you and your family at this time of sorrow. My deepest sympathy, Anne Swift-Kayatta
