Nancy Lewis lives in Marshfield, Maine and has been a member of Centre Street Congregational Church, UCC in Machias, Maine for over 41 years. She has served on almost every church committee over the years, including serving as Co-Chair of the church-sponsored Machias Wild Blueberry Festival. However, she has most enjoyed her tenure on the Board of Deacons where she has worked closely with Rev. Susie Maxwell to help support the spiritual life of the church.
Before retiring and returning to Maine after a brief time away, Nancy was an educator with the University of Maryland Extension. In retirement, she has enjoyed giving back to the community by volunteering– at church, at the area food pantry, and as a member of the local hospital auxiliary. When not volunteering, she can be found in her ever-expanding gardens that have become a great source of peace, joy, and spiritual retreat for her.
