Fryeburg – Nancy Lee Sienkiewicz, at this time, would like to thank all the people she knew; friends, families, acquaintances, teachers and students for the wonderful life you allowed her to have. Each of you played an important part in adding to the colors of the tapestry of the life she loved so much. Through your gifts of friendship you have given her much more than you’ll ever know and she thanks you for them. She loved you all in her own way and will miss you much. Nancy passed away peacefully at home guided by friends on May 4, 2019. Nancy was born in New York City, raised in Nashua, New Hampshire and attended Goddard College in Vermont. She worked at a medical lab and the Austine School for the Deaf in Vermont before settling in Fryeburg, Maine. There she taught school at MSAD 72 and at the Fryeburg Academy. She was a member of the Fryeburg Rescue Association since 1985 and was a certified EMT. She had many interests and was extremely artistic and skilled in various ways including knitting, sewing, quilting, beading, painting and writing. In fact, anything she had interest in; she mastered and was anxious to share or teach others what she had learned. Nancy was an avid mineral collector and enjoyed being a guide at Poland Mining Camps. She was also a member of several mineralogic clubs and organizations.
