“Nancy Virginia Weare of Exeter, formerly of Newburyport, Boston and Ipswich passed away peacefully at River-Woods in Exeter on December 12th at the age of 92.”
“After retirement, Nancy decided to write ‘Plum Island, The Way It Was’, about her favorite place in the whole world. Her family’s summer camp was at the Knobbs and she enjoyed sailing, swimming, and teaching her dog Nicki, to dig for clams. Her fondest and most vivid memories were of Plum Island. The Federal Government reclaimed the land when Nancy’s Mother passed on and she was able to find a home on Great Neck in Ipswich overlooking her beloved Island, where she lived for 33 years.”
‘Plum Island, The Way It Was’ has been used as a reference for ‘Behind the Scene Tours’ at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Plum Island Outdoors, Inc. would like to produce a museum based on ‘Plum Island, The Way It Was’.
