Nancy Masterton Obituary
Nancy Nye Masterton, 84
CAPE ELIZABETH - Nancy Nye Masterton, 84, passed away on May 17, 2015. She was born on Nov. 28, 1930, in Watertown, Mass. She grew up there with her parents, Mabel and Harold Nye, and sister Cynthia.
Nancy married her high school sweetheart, Robert Raynor Masterton, and they made a life together first in St. Paul, Minn., and then Cape Elizabeth.
Her fierce love for Maine led her to serve in the State Legislature for four terms, where she advocated for environmental protection and equal rights. She also served on the Appropriations Committee.
Nancy was a former president and committee member of the Maine League of Women Voters. She devoted much of her time and enthusiasm to volunteering, serving as a valued board member for the YWCA, the Maine Arts Commission, the Maine Historical Society and the University of Maine System.
She was a true nature lover, sailor, birder and gardener. Her farm in Denmark was her solace and true joy. Nancy was the last tall tree standing in her family, and she will be sorely missed.
She is survived by her children, Peter and Laurie, their spouses, Kelly and Roberto; her grandchildren, Alexander and Naomi Tuchman, and Spencer and Molly Masterton; and three great-grandchildren, Sloane, Quinn and Dylan.
Graveside service is planned for 9 a.m. on Thursday, May 21, 2015, at Riverside Cemetery, Cape Elizabeth. Arrangements made by
Hobbs Funeral Home
, 230 Cottage Rd., South Portland. On line condolences may be shared at www.hobbsfuneralhome.com
