Nancy Nickerson Obituary

Nancy L. Nickerson (Peters), age 66, of Londonderry, NH, formerly of Wilmington, MA, passed away unexpectedly on September 25, 2023, at her family cabin in Cornish, Maine.

Nancy was born in Lowell, MA, on December 19, 1956; she was the cherished daughter of the late Robert and Dorothy (Mongan) Peters.  Nancy was raised and educated in Wilmington, MA, and a graduate of Wilmington High School with the Class of 1975.

Throughout her life Nancy loved her animals, especially horses. Growing up on Grant St. Nancy enjoyed riding her pride and joy Chacora throughout the neighborhoods as often as she could. Later in life she would in her spare time, find herself volunteering at horse farms that homed neglected and abused horses. She had a real true special way of bonding with these animals.

Nancy married and moved to Londonderry, New Hampshire in 1984, where she raised “her boys” Ryan and Greg.  Nancy was a devoted and loving mother; she was always there for her boys at countless school and sporting events to cheer them on and show them her unconditional love and support.  Nancy beamed with pride when she spoke of her sons and of their many accomplishments.


Nancy took a position at the Londonderry Post Office as a mail carrier. Nancy knew the neighborhoods inside and out; she made many friends with her customers throughout the years and in November of 2022 she finally retired following nearly 20 years of dedicated service to the Post Office and the people of Londonderry.

In her spare time, Nancy loved to go to her family’s cabin in Cornish, Maine; this was her “most treasured place” on earth where she made many wonderful memories with her family while she was growing up.  Nancy loved to take her boys to the cabin, watching them grow up on the river; she enjoyed the beauty of nature all around her and the fun times shared with her family and friends throughout the years.

Nancy will be fondly remembered as a hard worker, a beautiful lady inside and out who had a heart of gold.  She loved her family and friends with all her heart, and she will forever be missed by all.

Nancy was the beloved mother of Ryan Nickerson and Greg Nickerson, both of New Hampshire, dear sister of Kathleen Ressler and her husband Ronald, Mark Peters and his wife Ada, Richard Peters and his wife Mary, and the late Robert Peters.  Nancy is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.
