    • Camden — Sally Nan Lasbury was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend. She passed away at the age of 89 Jan. 28, 2021, with her husband and eldest daughter by her side. She was the daughter of Howard and Margaret Murray, of Toledo, Ohio, born on Oct. 15, 1931. After graduating as valedictorian from Tarrytown High School, she attended Colby College in Waterville. It was at Colby College that she met her husband, R. Chase Lasbury.

      Nan and Chase were married in Tarrytown, N.Y. July 12, 1952. Through her husband's career they lived in many places across the U.S. but always felt most at home in Maine.

      Nan loved spending time on the golf course, tennis court, ski mountain and at her sewing machine, creating crafts. She cherished being with her family and friends, sharing stories and laughter. She served on many boards and committees in her local communities, including the Penobscot Bay YMCA, United Midcoast Charities, the First Congregational Church of Camden, and Megunticook Golf Club.

      Chase and Nan shared a passion for sports and enjoyed playing tennis, golf and skiing together. They also loved traveling and enjoyed visiting many places across the globe. In their younger days, they spent warm summers sailing Penobscot Bay and cruising Lake Megunticook. Later in life, they returned to Camden as full-time residents. Chase and Nan had a 68-year-long love story punctuated with laughter, love, and loss.

      Nan’s daughters were loved by her soft side but raised by her hard edges to become the women they are today. They will remember her for her love, her advice, the clothing and gifts sewn by hand, reminders to fix their hair or to put on lipstick, and the dreaded tissue she always had rolled up in her sleeve to wipe away tears or dirt from their faces. All others will remember her for her hot pink lipstick that left traces of kisses on all the people she loved.

      She will be sorely missed by her husband of 68 years, Chase Lasbury; daughters, Debbie, Shauna and Becky; grandchildren, Kimberly (Evan), Alisha, Emilee, Willy and Theo; great-grandchildren, Joshua, Mckaylah, Serenity, Harrison and Justus; son-in-law Chris Cummings and daughter from another mother, Mary Clewet; sister-in-law, Abigail Fitzgerald and her husband, John; and her beloved puppy, Munchkin, who snuggled with her until the end.

      She was predeceased by her daughter, Paige, and son, Ricky, whom we believe are waiting at the gates of heaven to welcome her home.

      The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Penobscot Bay YMCA, P.O. Box 840, Rockport, Maine, 04856. Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at longfuneralhomecamden.com Arrangements are with the Long Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Camden.
