LIMINGTON – Nancy Sargent Maxwell died unexpectedly after a brief illness, on Sept. 18, 2021, at the age of 72 at her home in Limington. Nancy was born in Portland on April 19, 1949, the daughter of Alice Blake (Chick) and Carroll P. Sargent.

She attended Limington schools and graduated from Bonny Eagle High School in 1969. She married Earl Maxwell in November 1975, and they enjoyed 45 years of marriage at their home in Limington. Nancy loved her family, friends, and the town of Limington with a special intensity. She greatly enjoyed the simple pleasures of life, including getting together with friends, spending holidays with her family, going for car rides with Earl, picking blueberries, fishing in the local streams and lakes, mowing lawns, four wheeling, making homemade candy, talking on the phone with friends, and spending time with her cherished dog, Kringles. She didn’t ask for or expect much, and was always delighted with simple pleasures and recognitions, including unexpected visits by family and friends, small gifts and notes, and the surprise birthday parties thrown by her friends, particularly the celebrations of her 50th and 70th birthdays.
