Nancy D. Hall

Date of Death: March 4, 2020

Date of Birth: May 20, 1929


Nancy Hall, born Nancy Despres, passed away Wednesday morning, March 4th in her sleep.  Born May 20th, 1929, in New York, NY, Nancy grew up in Westchester county NY and eventually got her Masters degree in early childhood education from Bank Street College.  Nancy's undergrad experience at Earlham College included a year studying abroad in France shortly after the end of WWII.  During this time in France, Nancy developed strong friendships that still remain today.  Nancy's career in education included several schools in the Cambridge, MA area as well as leading her own early education school.  Nancy married David Hall in 1969 after meeting on an Appalachian Mountain Club trip.  Nancy & David moved to an old tidal farm on Dam Cove in West Bath Maine, where they lived for the next 44 years, and where they raised their two children, Alison & Jonathan.  Nancy's love for the outdoors included gardening, camping, hiking, wilderness canoeing and ocean sailing. She also enjoyed arranging and experiencing travel, both locally & abroad.  Nancy was inquisitive by nature, had a strong personal compass in many aspects of her life, and cared deeply about those around her.  Nancy considered herself a Quaker and was a 50-year member of the Brunswick Friends Meeting. Nancy is survived by her children Alison & Jonathan, her grandchildren Katelyn & Grace, her brother in-law Kenneth Overman, her sister in-law Elizabeth Harmon, and 5 nieces & nephews.  A memorial service for Nancy will be scheduled at a later date.
