Nancy loved her grandchildren with all her heart, she referred to them as her 4 JOES, Jackson (McNally), Owen (McNally), Easton (Holt) and Savena (Holt) and enjoyed trips with Charlie to the mountain in VA to visit Keith and his family. She never met a stranger and always livened up the room when she walked in.  She enjoyed traveling and loved celebrating birthdays in a big way. She and Charlie had a lot of adventures together and took a trip of a lifetime to Alaska. She had another wonderful trip to Ireland with her sister, Linda.  She was proud of completing triathlons and 5K races and she appreciated the long-time friendships of her very close high school friends, Sharon Howard and Ruth McCoy. Her flowerbeds were always beautiful and she loved crocheting dishcloths. Nancy also made a lot of special friends during her cancer journey and touched a lot of people’s lives.

We were blessed to have met Nancy after Keith married our niece. Nancy was always a joy to be around. It was so touching, just a few weeks upon the passing of Tammy's mom, Nancy posted a sweet memory of her. Even during her own suffering, Nancy thought of others. We send our love and prayers to the family that you may find comfort in the precious memories you have.
