Evelyn “Nancy” McKnight

January 21, 1933 ~ January 28, 2021 (age 88)


Evelyn “Nancy” (Brewer) McKnight, born January 21, 1933, daughter of Archie & Julia (Alley) Brewer of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 28th at the LincolnHealth - Miles Campus in Damariscotta, with her two daughters by her side. 

She worked from a young age to help purchase extras for the family; from working at “The Bargain Center” in Quincy, Massachusetts, to working as a chambermaid at various Boothbay Harbor motels, to working in housekeeping at Coves Edge for many years. 

She loved lawn sales and spent a good deal of time going to them with her great grandson and anyone else that would go. She was a regular Bingo player when she had someone to go with her.  She enjoyed collecting cardinals, pocket books, Betty Boop memorabilia, porcelain dolls and furniture. She loved having children around her and always looked forward to getting updated photos to display. She always has popsicles and treats for when the kids popped in. She was a lover of small dogs and had at least one at any given time for most of her life. 

She was predeceased by her husbands, Ralph McKnight and Alton Hitchcock; as well as her grandsons Gerard Baldacchino Jr. and Brock Davis. 

She is survived by her four children, Sheila Baldacchino of Bristol, Maine, James McKnight of Damariscotta, David McKnight of Florida, and Brenda Myers of Grand Prairie, Texas; 15 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and 7 great-great grandchildren. 

She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.  A private service will be held for her family.  She will be laid to rest in the Bristol Mills Cemetery in the spring.

Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, 612 Main Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543.  Condolences, and messages for her family, may be expressed by visiting:
