Beth Ann Nelson – Lincoln County News
Beth Ann Nelson, 60, of Deer Ridge Road, Wiscasset, died on Monday, May 10, 2021 at her residence.
She was born in Oceanside, NY on April 29, 1961, the youngest daughter of August and Ann Fink. Her sisters, Susan, Holly, and Robin, share that a sister is a special gift and losing Beth is incomprehensible.
Beth grew up in Oradell, NJ and has spent many summers on Lake Damariscotta. As a teenager, she and her mother moved to Damariscotta, where she attended Lincoln Academy and made many close friends and met her first husband, Joe Bent.
Beth was full of energy and compassion. When employed as a secretary at Jefferson School, she treated all students like her own children, freely giving advice and guidance – especially if they waited to see the principal.
Her greatest love was for her family and she was a great mom. She married John W. Nelson and they lived in Jefferson, raising Jennifer, Coleman, John and Logan. Friends were always welcome and snacks were always served. She has been very active and supportive in all their scouting and sporting events.
Beth’s most recent joy was getting engaged at Christmas to Victor Herold; they had many fun times together and were looking forward to many more.
Beth really enjoyed collecting snow babies. She loved watching birds, dragonflies and small creatures, especially with Victor at his house. His all-time favorites were dragonflies and hummingbirds for sure. She was always ready to lend a hand when she could. She was delighted to have nine grandchildren.
She is survived by three loving sons, Coleman Nelson and his wife Charis Patterson of Midland, Texas, John K. Nelson and his wife Chantel of Wiscasset, and Logan Nelson and his fiancee Nicki Griffin of Bremen; three devoted sisters, Susan Higgins of Vassalboro, Holly Stevenson and her husband Doug of Wayne, and Robin Fink of Winthrop; beloved grandchildren, Seamus, Gabe, Trinity, Parker, Cage, MaisieBeth, Jace, Gavin, and her most recent sweetheart, Jennifer Claire (JC); also several nieces, nephews and cousins. It broke her heart to lose her daughter, Jennifer Bent, on December 5, 2016. Indeed, it was health complications with Beth’s heart that led her to be with Jennifer and we share Isaiah 43: 4, “You are precious and honored in my sight and you are loved.
There will be a private service later this summer. Arrangements are made by Daigle Funeral Home, 819 High St., Bath. Condolences can be made online at daiglefuneralhome.com.
