SEABROOK, N.H. - Mrs. Nancy R. (Wilkins) Earabino, 71 of Seabrook, formerly of Newburyport, beloved wife of the late Richard Earabino, died Monday, August 5, 2019 at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Ipswich, she was the daughter of the late Floyd and Dorothy (Osborne) Wilkins, sister of Charles, Walter, and Richard Wilkins. She was raised in Topsfield and a graduate of Masconomet Regional High School in 1965. Nancy continued her education and received her Nursing Degree from Essex Agricultural and Technical School.

Soon after in 1967, she married the love of her life Richard Earabino. They were married 34 years before Richard's passing. During that time, Nancy embarked on a long career in nursing which included Beverly Hospital, Hunt Hospital in Danvers, and the Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, where she retired after over 30 years of service.

A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister Nancy encouraged the people in her life to have fun and live every day to its fullest. She was truly proud of her children and grandchildren and loved being a part of their many adventures. Nancy gave of herself every day; to her friends, family, and her patient's with her loving spirit.

Nancy embodied the word Angel and was always there to help guide you through your time of need. Her generosity and kind spirit will be deeply missed by her loving family and the many lives she touched along the way.
