She was a prior resident of Alexandria, Occoquan and Spotsylvania, Virginia and retired from Giant Food. She enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening, and spending time with her family and friends. Nancy was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman. She was selfless and always extended her hand to others in need.


She was a devoted Christian, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend who will be immensely missed by all. She was a living example of Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32—“And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
