On July 5, 2019, Nancy Jenney Seabury died peacefully at the age of 87 in Falmouth, Maine.
Nancy was born on Dec. 15, 1931, in Portland, Maine, the daughter of Warren and Mary Jenney.
She attended Radcliffe College, and in 1953 married Frank Seabury. Together they raised three daughters in Concord, Mass., and then in Freedom, N.H. Nancy worked for the Concord Council on Aging and the Concord Museum, and was on the board of the Colonial Dames and the Freedom Public Library.
Nancy loved painting, stenciling, antiquing, and, above all, spending time with her family. During her last week, she enjoyed Freedom Ducky Day, dinner with her daughter and grandson, and watching fireworks with her sister.
Nancy is survived by her sister, Mary “Howsie” Stewart of Falmouth, Maine; her three daughters, Susan Aselage, and her husband Randy of St. Louis, Mo.; Jennifer Seabury of Park City, Utah, and Elizabeth Seabury of Concord, Mass.; her five grandchildren: Cate Doran, and her husband Barrett, of Dallas, Texas; Jenney of New York, N.Y.; Hannah of Wiscasset, Maine; Isabel of Minneapolis, Minn.; and Henry of Portland, Ore.; and her two great grandchildren Josephine and Chandler Doran.
Nancy’s love for her family and community and her enthusiasm to learn something new every day will be carried on by her family. “Nanny” will be missed.
The family is planning a celebration of her life to be held in Freedom in December. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the Freedom Historical Society, 28 Old Portland Road, Freedom, NH 03836.
