Obituary for Nancy P. Fay

IPSWICH - Nancy Anne (Pisko) Fay, 58 years old, of Ipswich, MA, formerly of Kensington, CT, passed away peacefully at home on November 12, 2018 following a courageous battle against brain cancer. Beloved wife of David J. Fay Jr. Born in New Britain, CT, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Helen (Korzun) Pisko.

Nancy was raised and educated in Kensington, CT and was a graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in New Britain, CT. She furthered her education at Assumption College where she graduated magna cum laude and earned a master’s degree in Social Rehabilitation. In her professional career, she held positions in the social rehabilitation and recruitment fields, and for the past fifteen years, she helped to create lead the human resources department at The Golf Club at Turner Hill.

Nancy had a boundless zest for life. She was “family first” through and through, and made raising three kids look easy. She spent the past 34 years as a member of the Manchester Bath & Tennis Club, where she savored every day, forged lifelong friendships, and made cherished memories with her family. Always one to put others before herself, she volunteered regularly at The Open Door Food Pantry in Gloucester. She found pleasure and solace in the beach, long walks outside, gardening, and floral arranging. She was also a lover of animals, especially her rescue dog, Pippa Middleton. She was an incredible hostess, regularly spoiling her family and friends with delicious meals and her famous “signature cocktails.” Her unwavering faith in God contributed to the immense strength and grace she possessed throughout her life. Nancy’s radiance, warmth, and compassion will be terribly missed by all those blessed to be in her life.

In addition to her husband, with whom she shared thirty-four years of marriage, Nancy is survived by three children who brought her immense joy and pride, Caroline C. Fay of Cambridge, MA, Bridget A. Fay of Los Angeles, CA, and D. Robertson (Rob) Fay of Boston; two brothers, Dennis Pisko of Kensington, CT and Robert Pisko and his partner Janis O’Neill of West Hartford, CT; two sisters-in-law, Valerie A. Fay of Magnolia, MA and Justine F. Chamberlin of Wenham, MA; nephew and godson, Drew Chamberlin of Boston, and niece, Katherine Chamberlin Snook of North Reading, MA. She was also the daughter-in-law of the late David J. and Ann C. (LaVigne) Fay of Needham, MA.

Her Funeral Mass will be held at the Church of St. Paul, 50 Union Street, Hamilton, MA on Monday morning, November 19th. Relatives and friends are invited to attend. Interment will be held privately.
