Nancy's Story

BUCKSPORT - Nancy Ann Chandler Doyon Rossignol, 52, of Bucksport, passed away on November 22, 2015. She was born on July, 2,1963 in Caribou, Maine, and the daughter of Madeline Marie Gideon Rossignol of Quebec, Canada, and Clarence Rossignol of Caribou, Maine.

Nancy attended school at Van Buren District Secondary School. She then went on to attend Bangor Community College studying gerontology.

Nancy loved to cook and bake for everyone. She worked at the bakery at Shaw's Supermarket in Bangor, at Coffee Break in Hampden, and always contributed at church suppers and events. Nancy's love for helping other contributed to her career at Harbor Hill in Belfast doing a variety of work. Whatever was needed, Nancy was sure to provide.

She went on to start her own cleaning business that continued to grow over the years. Over the course of its run, Nancy served over 100 clients in the Greater Bangor area. They were more than just clients for Nancy, they were her friends. Nancy would always go above and beyond with those she served. There was never a need to ask anything of Nancy because she would always give before the need was even realized. She asked nothing in return. Her selflessness went beyond measure, and she leaves behind a legacy that is unmatched.

Of all that Nancy accomplished, her greatest achievement was her two boys, Tyler Andrew Doyon, and Holden Richard Doyon both of Winterport. She was proud of all they did, and told every person she met about them. Her greatest joy was spending time with them.

In 1982, Nancy met her love, Brian Chandler of Bucksport, while in college and they were together for about 10 years. Life would cause them to go in different directions, but they would reconnect in 2010 and have been by each other's side ever since. In 2014, Nancy and Brian bought their dream home. Nancy loved her new home and spent several hours sitting on the front porch crafting. They loved the home so much that on August 1, 2015, they said their vows in the backyard surrounded by their family and friends. They shared this home with Olivia Chandler, Brian's daughter. Nancy loved to go shopping for Olivia, and spending time with her. The family cat, Broccoli, and family dog, Bailey, were also in the home. Broccoli was Nancy's baby, and Nancy would tell Brian daily that she "did good" picking out Bailey from The Bangor Humane Society.

Nancy's favorite pass time was rug hooking. She did this with a group of women she fondly called her "hookers". She enjoyed spending time with them and gabbing.

Her latest achievement was getting her motorcycle license. Nancy was no longer willing to ride on the back and fetlt the need to drive on her own. After completing her course, Nancy would steal Brian's motorcycle and visit her clients and friends. This past summer, Nancy got her own Cam-am Spyder with matching helmet. She rode it everywhere.

Nancy is survived by her father, Clarence and his wife Helen of Caribou, along with Nancy's foster mother, Jeannette Bouchard of Lille. Nancy was predeceased by her mother, Madeline. Nancy is survived by her husband, Brian, and his daughter, Olivia, of Bucksport, his son Nick of South West Harbor, Nancy's sons, Tyler and Holden, along with Holden's wife, Jordanne, all of Winterport, Nancy's brother, Ricky Rossignol, and his son, Tanner, both of Kenduskeag, Nancy's sister, Penny Rossignol, and her son, Tyrin, of Pennsylvania, Nancy's sister, Annmarie Cyr, her husband, Danny, and their children, Alexis, Brandon, and Caleb, of Madawaska, Nancy's brother, Norman Bouchard, his wife, Robin, and their children, Stephen and Aaron, of Peabody, Massachusetts, Nancy's brother, David Bouchard, his wife, Diane, and their children, Danielle, Nicole, and Ashley, of Bristol, Connecticut.
