Nancy’s parents instilled in her the values of kindness and love of family, which she carried with her throughout her life. Though she was an only child, Nancy had many cousins and extended family, with whom she was close.
Nancy worked as an LPN at Good Hope Hospital, and later at Harnett County Schools where she was a teacher’s assistant and a nurse. She was a lifelong member of Erwin First Baptist Church where she was head of the visitation committee and led the fundraising effort within the church to support the Kennedy’s Children’s Home in Kinston after her father’s death. She was also a Girl Scout leader.
Nancy loved her family more than anything. While she made her home in Erwin, her favorite place in the world was Holden Beach, North Carolina, where she had a cottage.
Nancy was a loving wife, a dedicated mother, an extraordinary grandmother, and a beloved great-grandmother.
Services have been entrusted to West and Dunn Funeral Home of Erwin, NC
