Nancy L. Shattuck

February 26, 1955 — June 26, 2024

Warren, NH

Nancy Lee (Clinton) Shattuck, 69, passed away peacefully on Wednesday June 26th at Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth, NH. She was born on February 26, 1955 in Manchester NH, the daughter of Paul L. Clinton and Yvette M. Clinton. She was the life partner of Sonny (Jacques) Rousseau with whom she resided in Warren, NH for the last 20 years enjoying country living.

Nancy attended Moore Elementary School in Candia NH and Memorial High School in Manchester NH. She continued on to obtain an Associates degree in Accounting. Nancy enjoyed a 30 year career at General Electric in Hooksett, NH before retiring in 2014.

Nancy’s laugh filled a room and her passion for helping others was insatiable. Her desire to make every moment count was her driving force, fueling numerous hobbies and adventures. Nancy played piano and was an avid rock and ice climber making multiple trips to Colorado for the “big ice”. She and Sonny started and ran N&S Country wines and produced popular fruit wines for many years. Nancy enjoyed hunting, fishing, and her green thumb had her growing everything from potted plants to pineapples and cherry trees. She was a magician in the kitchen turning ingredients into freezers full of breads, brownies, and cookies including her signature carrot cakes and her “Christmas Crack” chocolate bars that left everyone needing “just one more”. She also started and ran Nancy’s Creations Plus that featured hand crocheted sweaters that took dozens of hours to make. She created sweaters, afghans, childrens’ hats and outfits, and other items which she sold at the local farmers market. While she enjoyed the adventures of creating and selling, she loved nothing more than to give. She gifted her breads, crocheted goods, wine, fruit, and everything else she had to offer but most importantly, she was generous with her time.

Nancy’s time was limitless when it came to the Dempsey Center for cancer care and support. She rode, walked, and raised money each year to help those affected by the disease. She once worked for five months straight with a colleague selling baked goods to coworkers to donate thousands of dollars to earn an invite to meet Patrick Dempsey at the yearly Dempsey Challenge. After that success, they repeated the endeavor for the March of Dimes annual fundraiser at GE, winning a steak dinner for the entire night shift. Nancy was tireless, offering her time to the Warren NH Pythian Sisters Woman’s club to help her local community while continuing to help others raise money for their own causes.

As a sister, mom, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend she wanted nothing more than to enjoy the company of her family and friends. She never missed an opportunity to make connections, build bonds, and to provide support for everyone in her life. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren teaching them to bake or simply enjoying time or a meal. Her presence will always be felt.

Nancy is survived by her life partner Sonny (Jacques) Rousseau, daughter Belinda Pelletier and husband Bill, son A.J. (Albert) Shattuck Jr. and wife Michelle, five grandchildren, Corey, Alex, Christina, Ethan and Owen, five great-grandchildren, Kira, Bailey, Mason, Brooklyn and Charlie, five sisters, Patricia Hill, Betty Nelson, Juanita Witham, Deanna Lewis, Donna Jefferson, and two brothers George Clinton and Paul Clinton.

She is predeceased by her parents Paul and Yvette Clinton and her sisters, Lorraine Babel and Susan Clinton.

A celebration of Nancy’s life will be held on Wednesday July 10th from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at Phaneuf Funeral Homes & Crematorium, 243 Hanover Street, Manchester, NH 03104. Visiting hours will be from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm followed by a short service where memories of Nancy will be shared at 1:00 pm. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
