Rockland — Nancy Lillian Lecakis, 88, passed away peacefully at her home Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, with her daughter by her side.

Born Dec. 20, 1931, in North Hampton, Mass., to Lynnwood Earl and Ida Mildred (Taylor) Hatch, she was educated in local schools.

Following high school, Nancy attended nursing school for a short period of time before marrying James George Lecakis June 28, 1952. She then went on to devoting her time raising her children and being a homemaker. Her daughter states that “Mom put her all into raising her children and being there for them and her grandchildren.”

Nancy enjoyed many things in life that included crocheting, watching and following the Red Sox, crossword puzzles, she loved 10 pin bowling and was a member of a bowling league at one time. She also loved to go antiquing both here in Maine and in Florida with her daughter.

Nancy was also a member of the D.A.V. Woman’s Auxiliary, sang in the choir at Old Perish Church in Sheffield, as well as participating in many fund raisers. Active in her community, Nancy assisted with the local elections for many years.

Nearly 20 years ago, Nancy moved to Maine to be closer to her nearest family member which was her son, Tom. Her daughter Tracy eventually followed from Florida so they could all be together.

Predeceased by her parents, her husband James, her son James and her granddaughter Stacy Lynn Balint, she is survived by son Tom Lecakis and his husband John J. Costello; daughter Tracy Lecakis-Balint, all of Rockland; sisters Mary Lynn Hall and her husband Jay of Vero Beach, Fla., Paula M. Hatch of Great Barrington, Mass.; grandchildren Kayla Marie Balint, Kylie Nan Balint and Stephen G. Balint III, and two great-grandchildren Kherington Hupfel and Wesley T. Malecki.

Nancy will be laid to rest privately next to her husband at Sheffield Center Cemetery in Sheffield, Mass.
