WESTON, Vt. – Nancy A. Tobin, 71, of Weston, Vt., passed away peacefully on Monday, September 18, 2017. A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. on Oct. 7 at the Wild Boar Tavern, located at Bromley Mountain.
Nancy was born in Queens, N.Y., on Nov. 7, 1945. Following her career as a pediatric nurse, Nancy graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 1991. Nancy was a licensed and nationally certified massage therapist with practices in Ludlow, Weston, Rawsonville (Jamaica), and Bondville, Vt., and a former staff member of Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London, Conn., where she helped form a massage team providing volunteer service for Hospice of Southeastern Connecticut.
For over 20 years, Nancy also served as a volunteer member of the National Ski Patrol, providing highly specialized emergency care for the skiing and snowboarding public at Okemo Mountain and Bromley Mountain in southern Vermont.
Nancy was an avid lover of animals; her home was never without a dog. She ardently donated to multiple charities serving animals and children. She was exceptionally active, enjoying outdoor winter sports such as snowshoeing and snowboarding, as well as constantly seeking out opportunities for continuing massage education. Her quiet strength, warm smile, and loving, nurturing spirit benefited all those whose lives she touched.
Nancy is survived by her partner of 27 years, Terry Randolph of Weston; daughters Jennifer Tobin (Chris McCarty) of San Francisco; Melissa Tobin (Burton Sloan) of Boulder, Colo.; and Amy Tobin (Daniel Bolanos Alonso) of Mohegan Lake, N. Y., and her stepdaughter, Julie Randolph (Bret Arnold) of Warwick, R. I. She is also survived by her brother, Paul Reynolds (Judy) of Boerne, Texas; her former husband, Robert Tobin; and six grandchildren Julien, Andre, Elias, Theodore, Josephine and Dario.
Nancy is preceded in death by her parents, Herbert and Paula Reynolds.
