Nancy was born in New Britian, CT and lived there with her family until the age of 14 when the family moved to Martha’s Vineyard, MA. She spent many great years fishing, beaching, boating and loving life with her 2 brothers, Carl and Bob and sister Mabel. It was there, while working at the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital as a lab and Xray tech that she met the love of her life, Ralph. They were married in 1962 and had 10 great years together before his death in 1973.
Prior to moving to Homewood at Crumland Farms in Frederick MD, Nancy lived on Hilton Head Island SC where she was an avid golfer and leaves behind many friends there. She loved her many years in Port Royal Plantation playing golf, dining with friends, and taking care of her little dog, Jenny.
Nancy always said she had the best life having experienced Martha’s Vineyard and Hilton Head Island in their prime. She enjoyed traveling and especially enjoyed golfing trips with her friends. Nancy had a great sense of humor and when asked by her granddaughter, Elizabeth where she would like to go if she go anywhere, she replied “heaven”. She has made her final trip and everyone who knew her, will miss her.
