Nancy Ashline In Celebration Of Your Life
Nancy Ashline In Memory Of Your Birthday
Place of birth: Norwood, MA
Religious affiliation: Catholic
Nancy Ashline (Wolf) age 87, passed away December 2, 2016 at her home in North Kingstown surrounded by her children.
Nancy grew up in Hyannis Port, MA and as a child summered at her grandparent’s in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
After attending Barnstable High School, she enrolled in secretarial school and was later employed at Boston University.
In 1977 she began working at Jordan Marsh in the Warwick Mall in Warwick, RI before retiring in 1991.
After retiring, she enjoyed traveling the U.S and a tour of Europe with her late sister Jayne (Merriweather).
Nancy enjoyed gardening, bird watching, music (especially The Boston Pops), cross-stitch, and cooking shows. She loved attending the Air Show each year, and always looked forward to the Tall Ships coming to town. She was also a Red Sox fan and enjoyed going to Fenway Park with her kids.
Her favorite place to return to was always Lunenburg, and her kids took turns taking her there for vacations later in life.
Her daughter Meg served as her caregiver for over five years and thus, she was able to die peacefully at home. Meg was aided by the patient and compassionate visiting nurse, Dorothy Coutard who took exceptional care of both of them, especially toward the end of Nancy’s life.
Besides her daughter Meg, of Warwick, RI, she is survived by her son, Peter and wife Nancy, of Boone, NC, a daughter Suzanne of Southbridge MA, four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Services will be private.
