Morin Award, an honor given to an outstanding credit union employee. At the time of her passing, Nancy was a member of OTIS FCU’s Supervisory Committee.

“Nancy’s dedication to OTIS and the credit union movement was unparallel,” said Chris Bouchard, President/CEO at OTIS FCU. “She is leaving behind a strong legacy and has inspired many to be more. More involved. More compassionate. More kind. Together we are more because of her dedication and passion for moving the community and OTIS forward. Nancy will be sadly missed by her OTIS family and the community.”

She was born March 9, 1949, in Jay, the daughter of Richard Bryant and Hattie (Slovak) Bryant. Nancy was a 1967 graduate of Jay High School and attended 3 years at Gorham State Teachers College.

Nancy worked at OTIS Federal Credit Union for 38 years, retiring in June of 2015 as Vice President and receiving the Jeannette G. Morin Award for Outstanding CU Employee. Nancy was currently serving on the OTIS Federal Credit Union Supervisory Committee joining in 2016. Nancy Blodgett began her career at the OTIS Federal Credit Union in January of 1977, she dedicated her work life to OTIS FCU members. From teller to Vice President of OTIS Federal Credit Union, Nancy has always stepped up to take on new responsibilities and duties. In the early years, her job description most likely did not exist, but she understood that it was always about her helping the members. That is what she did and as the credit union grew adding new services and products, Nancy assisted in the implementation and advocating that members come first. Nancy led a strong lending team over the years, she contributed her success as the leader of the loan department was that she treated her employees more as family, her children, rather than employees of the credit union. Stepping up to help with the many fundraisers and local events over the years, Nancy contributed her time and donations to help others. She participated and raised money for the OTIS FCU March of Dimes team for many years. Giving and raising money for Ending Hunger, by participating and aiding with the basket bingo, basket calendar, and by cooking wonderful pastries to sell during our various bakes sales such as Soup & Chowder days. She was one of the first to volunteer at the Special Olympics Spring Games in Jay, being there to serve and clean up on the last Saturday of January as the local Special Olympians headed off to the winter games at Sugarloaf. Nancy was always helping, only missing “maybe” one event so she could attend her granddaughter’s basketball game. She will be remembered for all that institutional history and knowledge that she had shared regarding OTIS FCU. Her ability to greet members by name and knowing their account numbers and sometimes even what they want before they asked, has allowed her to offer longtime members the ultimate personal service. Nancy also volunteered at the Maine Credit Union League where she was involved with Governmental Affairs. The League’s Governmental Affairs department takes an active role in legislative and regulatory issues and activities of interest to Maine’s Credit Unions and the credit union movement at the local, state, and national level. She was active in Augusta, Maine and attended the annual conferences in Washington, DC.

She was a communicant of St. Rose of Lima Church in Jay and former member of the Livermore Falls Fire Department Auxiliary. She enjoyed travelling with her husband Stephen and her grandchildren, and wintering in Cocoa Beach. Nancy was a devoted grandmother and loved following her granddaughter Alexis and grandson Jayden’s sporting events.
