Nancy Marshall, formerly of West Tisbury and more recently of Sanford, Me., died in October 2017 from cancer. She was 72.

She is survived by her husband of 29 years, Michael, and her three children Heather, Todd and John. She also had a place in her heart for her grandchildren, Sage and Lohen Goodwin.

Her husband wrote the following poem in her memory:

Nancy, I can never say goodbye

There can be no goodbyes for us, It’d be too painful, dear

Our connections still lives on. Although you’re far from here

I miss the times that we once had. But one day, Once again

I’ll hold you close and laugh with you. Just wish I knew when.

Each moment till that day arrives. Until my time is through.

I’ll miss you more than words can say and always think of you

I’ll look for you among the stars and each dawn’s painted sky.

And whisper words of love to you But never say good bye

I love you, sweetheart
