Nancy Worth Bassett died on July 11, 2022.

She was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, daughter of the late Clyde L. and Charlotte Mary (Emmett) Worth. She grew up in Holbrook, Braintree and Weymouth, MA, and graduated from Weymouth High School.

In 1965 she married Richard Bassett who predeceased her in 1988. She had a varied career, beginning as a stenographer for the federal government. After the birth of her first daughter she began working in the accounting office of Cape Cod Hospital. She ran a day care business for 7 years and then finished up as a service consultant for 25 years at the former Corson Cadillac in Hyannis, MA.

She firmly believed in volunteering, serving at times as president of the Cape Cod council of Camp Fire, financial secretary of the First Baptist Church, first aid instructor for the Red Cross and President of the Sam’s Rough Riders, a camping group.

She loved camping, being outdoors, cooking and baking treats for her friends and family. She also loved animals, especially her German Shepherd, Chrissy. She spent her spare time reading, doing word puzzles and working jigsaw puzzles with her great-granddaughters.

She was preceded in death by her sister Linda Worth and her brother Richard Worth. As well as her best friend and companion of 21 years Delmer Long.
