Nancy was born in Winchester.

Nancy worked as a Nurse in the Health Care field for many years. She received her Nursing Degree from Tewksbury State Hospital.  Nancy worked at the Aberjona Nursing Home in Winchester, the Hillsborough County Jail in Manchester, and for a local medical provider in Londonderry.  With her caring and compassionate nature, it was the perfect job for Nancy. 

Nancy’s greatest joy was her family.  When their children were younger, they enjoyed taking day trips around New Hampshire and Maine.  You were one of the special people in her life if you received a card from Nancy with a handwritten note.  She always enjoyed phone conversations with her family and friends and could talk for hours!  Nancy enjoyed reading mystery novels, crime shows on television and watching a good horror movie! Nancy also enjoyed going out to play Bingo on weekend nights with her mother and her sister. She cherished being a grandmother and was so blessed to have four beautiful granddaughters.  Nancy will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor and her love and devotion to her family.
