Claire S. Nickerson, 94, died Wednesday, September 11, 2019. She was born in Hulls Cove, ME on October 12, 1924 to Adfer and Helen (Hanscom) Strout.
She was a 1942 graduate of Bar Harbor High School and a 1946 graduate of Nasson College in Springvale, making the Who's Who book in 1946.
She married the late Maine State Police Capt. Millard E. Nickerson, Jr. of Sanford on July 6, 1946 in Bar Harbor. They had three children, Millard E. “Nicky' Nickerson, III, Michael E. and Mark E. Nickerson.
She was the matriarch of both the Strout family and the Nickerson family.
She did bookkeeping for several businesses in the Brunswick area, Dr. Wilson, Senters, and the old Woolen Mill in Topsham before moving to Vassalboro when her husband became a trooper in 1953.
She was a 1st grade school teacher at Riverside School in Vassalboro for over 25 years and helped her husband Nick run the Kennebec County Federal Credit Union when she retired from teaching for many years.
She was inspiration to many, many of her students even at the 1st grade level.
Claire was loved by all who knew her. She loved a good time and never wanted to miss anything!
She was pre-deceased by her husband, Millard and a son, Michael.
She is survived by her sons: Millard, who lost his wife Linda of 50 years on August 25th, and Mark and his companion Debra Violette; her grandchildren: Lisa Taylor and husband John, Lori Tungseth and husband Nathan, Richard and wife Gretchen, Jenny and husband Bobby, Jimmy and wife Heidi, and Max; great grandchildren: Brooke, Abby, Zachary, Emily Thompson and husband Thad, Emery, Kolby, Kayleigh, Owen, Austin and Myla; great-great grandchild, Mary Frances Thompson; a brother-in-law, Charles Nickerson and his wife Linda of Wells Beach, and countless nieces and nephews from Maine to California and beyond.
Special thanks to all the staff at the Maine Veterans Home in Augusta. They showed her compassion, love, friendship and the best care she could have ever gotten.
At her request, there will be no public visiting hours. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, September 14th at 3 PM at the Riverside Congregational Church in Vassalboro, with Rev. Patricia Jones officiating. Private burial will be at a later date in the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Augusta.
In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Riverside Congregational Church, 38 Webber Pond Road, Vassalboro, Maine, 04989.

Mrs. Nickerson was my first grade teacher...and 41 years later, she is still and always will be my favorite! She challenged us, loved on us, and saw the potential in all of us. She is the reason I became a teacher. When I visited with her a couple years ago, she welcomed me with open arms. The world is a little dimmer with Mrs. Nickerson not in it. Prayers to all of her friends and family; she will be missed!
