Delma Nash Baldwin, 81, of Hallowell, passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 24 at Maine General Hospital in Augusta.
She was born April 27, 1926, the daughter of Chester and Ethel Hallowell Nash of Jefferson. She attended Jefferson Village School, graduated from Lincoln Academy in Newcastle, and attended Gates Business School in Augusta.
For a time she worked at the School for the Deaf in Portland before moving to Hartford, Conn., where she worked for the Hartford Bank in the trust department. The move to Providence, R.I. brought many years of active life and a marriage of 21 years to George (Ted) Baldwin, who died in 2006.
Her love of Maine was always with her, and she and Ted maintained a summer home in Waldoboro for several years where she attended the Waldoboro United Methodist Church and the Waldoboro Historical Society.
Delma retired from the Rhode Island Historical Preservation Commission.
She was a past president of the Business and Professional Women, and she and Ted were active in the Mathewson Street Methodist Church. She was a member of Signet Chapter #21, OES, the Rhode Island Post Card Club, and Jefferson Historical Society.
She was proud of her extensive, well-organized post card collection and she and Ted enjoyed many post card shows in Maine and Rhode Island. Her lovely pitcher collection was displayed beautifully in their Rhode Island home. Another special accomplishment was the detailed research of the Nash genealogy.
On June 6, she returned to Maine and resided at the Woodland Assisted Living in Hallowell, where she was happy and made friends.
She is survived by her sister, Arlene Nash White; nephews, Raymond White and wife Marion and their children, Matthew and Marissa, and Roger White and wife Tina; and several cousins.
