Nancy (Buckley) Ergmann
Nancy (Buckley) Ergmann passed away unexpectedly on December 4. All who knew her and loved her are heartbroken beyond belief. Nancy lived her life to the fullest with an ever present smile and effortless generosity. Nancy’s huge heart touched countless people throughout her life. She was a loving wife, perfect mother, proud and doting Grandma, trusted sister, beloved aunt, generous friend, and dedicated community member and coworker.
Nancy cherished spending quality time with friends and family on Harbor Beach; the dock at Squam Lake; daily walks through town with the girls; and on the golf course at York Golf and
Tennis. She especially loved countless family trips to St. Maarten; sailing in Belize and sitting at the fire at “the cottage.”
She was a hostess extraordinaire. Her home was filled with joyous pictures of her family and friends. Her door was never locked, and she was always ready to welcome in whoever dropped by. She loved a full house, with friends and family sitting and chatting around the kitchen island ( stocked with M&Ms and Skittles). She never let a wine glass get half empty, and always made sure you had at least one of her homemade chocolate chip cookies. Nancy was a caregiver by nature and was the glue in any circle that was blessed by her presence.
Nancy grew up in Nashua, NH. She and her husband, Mark lived most of their lives in York, ME with a short stint in Birmingham, AL. She loved living in York and felt fortunate to raise their boys in such a wonderful community.
Nancy was a hard worker and approached any and all responsibilities with respect and diligence. In January of 2000 she joined Century 21 Atlantic Realty in York. She was a successful agent and a true professional. Her integrity was admired by coworkers and clients alike. Nancy tenderly cared for her mother in the last years of her mother’s life. Nancy was a faithful member of First Parish Church, joyfully coordinating and chaperoning many youth mission trips.
