Nancy moved to Doylestown in 1960 with her husband, Jack, to raise their family. They had three children: Pamela, John and Jim who were all raised in Doylestown in a home filled with love and laughter. Her children and later her grandchildren were the “light of her life” and she reminded them of that every chance she had.

Nancy’s greatest joy was being a mom and homemaker with her door was always open to friends, family and especially the never-ending parade of the friends of her children. Everyone was always welcome and no one ever left her home hungry. She was a wonderful cook, decorator, seamstress and hostess. Later in life her passion was her grandchildren and she never missed a sporting event, concert or other activity they were involved in.
