Nancy A. Papademas
Lyme, NH: Nancy A. Papademas, 67, passed quickly, in her husband’s arms, at their home in Lyme, NH, after a long illness.
She was born in Nashua, NH, and raised by her parents, George and Mary Papademas, and her many aunties. She moved to Lebanon, NH at the age of 5. She graduated from Lebanon High School in 1969. She then attended Dartmouth College in the initial years of them going co-ed, though she received her degree in Archeology from the University of Vermont. She went on to get her Juris Doctor from the Vermont Law School. She then practiced law in Lebanon NH, taking over her father’s law practice. She was among the first 200 women to practice law in the state of New Hampshire.
She is survived by her daughter, Calla Mae Papademas, her husband, Tim Odell, her two sisters, Diana Papademas and Linda Papademas, and her sponsored child from Dominica, Macy Rivera.
Nancy was a very loving and generous soul. She was known and adored by many. None that met her ever forgot her. She sang for many years with the Thetford Chamber Singers, and aloud quite often, wherever she was. She was never afraid to speak her mind, and came to the aid of anyone, regardless of their social, financial or religious beliefs.
She enjoyed traveling, meeting new people and having deep conversations about everything and nothing. She enjoyed traveling to the Caribbean and fell in love with the island of Dominica.
There will be a memorial at the First Congregational Church in Thetford, VT on Saturday, September 14th at 11:00 AM. A reception will be held at her home in Lyme, NH following the service until 6:00 PM.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the church are encouraged. An online guestbook is available to leave Nancy’s family a message of condolence by visiting www.rickerfuneralhome.com.
