Anne Winslow Couch, or Nancy, as she preferred to be known, passed away on February 16, 2014.

She also leaves behind 5 beloved grandchildren, Madeline Couch, Jacob Couch, Nathan Lowell, Claire Couch, and Jameson Lowell. Nancy is predeceased by her older brother, Dr. LeBaron "Barry" Carleton Colt Jr who passed away on March 26, 2006 in Hartford, Ct..

It has been said that the wife is the heart of the home. No truer words could be spoken of Nancy. She was the heart of our family. She was a strong, intelligent woman who gave herself fully to all of her passions, whether it was her husband, children and grandchildren, her gardens, her Labradors, or her work. She was tireless and fearless.

She was born on September 26, 1931 in Boston, Ma. to LeBaron Carleton Colt and Josephine Jewell Colt. Nancy started her professional life as a nurse at Children's Hospital in Boston, Ma. where she met her husband, Nathan, who was in medical school at the time. With the arrival of her first child she turned her energies to making a home for her family. When her family became of age Nancy began looking for new challenges and turned to contributing her efforts as a political campaigner at the state level in Massachusetts. She changed careers again to helping schools such as Concord Academy, from which she graduated in 1950, Dana Hall School, and, eventually, Harvard University raise funds through their various development and alumni organizations.

While we shall miss her greatly we celebrate her life and thank God that she was a part our lives.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, May 9 at 11 o'clock AM at St. Dunstans Episcopal Church, 18 Springdale Ave
Dover, MA.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Nancy's name to the Alzheimer's Foundation at www.alz.org.
