Corrine Nash, 95, of Marlborough was recently honored by the Marlborough Historical Society for her years of service.

Nash, a resident of Presidential Oaks Retirement Community in Concord, was presented with a certificate and a bouquet of roses. She was one of several founding members of the Marlborough Historical Society in 1964 and was elected by the founders to be the organization’s first president.

“It’s a great hobby,” Nash said. “I have a lot of great memories.”

In addition to helping start the Historical Society, Nash was librarian at the town’s Frost Free Library for 23 years, from 1954-1977. She also served children of the school district for several years as lunch-room director.

In the 1970s, leading up to the Marlborough’s bicentennial in 1976, Nash worked closely with the producer of a documentary film, “Marlborough America” about the town, its history and residents.

She has been a resident at Presidential Oaks since 2018.
