Nancy (Nelson) Vassallo, age 66, passed away Saturday, November 3, 2018, surrounded by her family.~

Nancy, the daughter of Edward and Agnes Nelson, grew up in Windham, Maine and graduated from Windham High School in 1970. She spent the rest of her life in the Portland area, raising her family in the North Deering home where she has lived for over 30 years.~

Nancy will be remembered by those who knew her as the Life of the Party, she had smiles for everyone and was liked by everyone she met. For much of her life, she worked as a personal caretaker, which spoke as much about her personally as it did professionally, as Nancy’s true passion in life was taking care of the people around her.~

Some of the other true loves of her life were her animals. Her family pets were always considered actual members of the family. She had over 10 dogs in her lifetime, as well as numerous cats.~

Nancy will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 42 years, Michael, as well as her children: her daughter, Shandale Phillips; her son, Anthony Vassallo and his partner Stephanie Olson; her son, Nicholas Vassallo and his wife Heather. She will also be forever remembered by her two granddaughters, Kaitlyn Phillips and Vivian Vassallo, as well as her many other friends and relatives, including her close nephew and niece: Brian Woods and family and Laura Dyer and family.~

The family will be holding a private celebration of her life. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Animal Refuge League of Westbrook.
